Hey kids ❤️ I have quite a few new followers since the last time I did an introduction and I very rarely (never) show my face on here so I thought I’d take a minute. .  Taking photos of myself or sharing photos of myself makes me uncomfortable. The same way you may feel when you’re enjoying a nice dinner with family and/or friends and then someone decides to rip a little ass. Everyone’s enjoying life up until that point - swapping stories - being merry and then..... awkwardness ensues. That’s how I feel in front of a camera. So this is pretty much as good as it gets. I’m trying! . I hate being the subject of a photograph but I LOVE photography! It is the reason I got into making picture frames in the first place. . The bosses of my life weigh 27 & 37 lbs respectively. I do not dispute who runs our household. . I have no idea what is going on in Music right now. If they stopped making music in 1979 I’d be cool with it. Classic rock n’ roll is my favorite. . I’m a very odd combination of personality traits and a chronic oversharer. I think too much and talk too much yet often struggle being social. I say inappropriate things and love inappropriate memes. I often write posts and then delete them ‘cause I’m unsure if the masses would enjoy my sense of humor. My mother does not! 🤷🏻‍♀️ . Hearing the backstories behind your orders and custom frames is one of the greatest joys of my life . #introductions #smallbiz #makermom #oddball #butalsokindanormal #kinda #mixedbag #dontknow #amwhoiam #pictureframes
Although I tend to like my home decor how I like my social life; boring & minimal - a little pop of colour is always good for morale. . . I am in love with this tapestry by @monamiemanon and the yellow frame is hot off the press and has been added here for dramatic effect! . .

As we get into making some bigger pieces, my head and heart just explode with so many ideas and new things to bring you. 🎨🖼 Now, if only my dependents would quit being so.....dependent. 🤔. See you in 4 years with all my new ideas!

Sorry guys, I have been trying to bring some rhythm to my feed and.....🤷🏻‍♀️.....this shiz is exhausting. So. I quit. You’ll see some patterns here, some patterns there....but otherwise we’re just going back to the irregularly scheduled program. That’s more my style. Blah, blah, blah here’s a picture of my kid in the Fall. . . #whiteandwood #woodworkers #framers #woodworkersofig #makersofig #makersgonnamake #imadethis #handmadeisbetter #pictureframe #pictureframes #etsyseller #etsyfinds #handmademovement #chippypaint #farmhousestyle #farmhousedecor #cleanandsimple #simpledecor #electriccitymakers #lovelocalptbo #peterborough #kawarthalakes #thehappynow #onmydesk #maker #mama #momboss #countryliving #rusticstyle

Usually.....when the rest of the world sleeps......you can almost always find one light on in my house. By nature, I really need alone time but it’s just not possible for the large majority of my day. I need it to refuel, slow-down my racing mind, process ideas or sometimes just to sit and stare into space. Do you save an hour or two a day just for you? . .  #foodforthought #earlymorningthoughts #theeverygirl #risingtidesociety #livingdreams #chasingdreams #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #girlboss #momboss #everyday #mythoughts #stilladjusting #happymatters #thehappynow #makersgonnamake #communityovercompetition #dream #daydreamers #nightthinkers #loner #alonetime
Note to self: print new photos that actually correspond with your frame quotes. 🤷🏻‍♀️. Yeah, maybe. I’ll get that done right after my mani/pedi and before my overdue oil change. 👍 . . #etsysellers #etsyfinds #etsyto #etsyca #smallshop #smallbiz #momboss #mompreneur #sahm #wahm #imadethis #risingtidesociety #makersgonnamake #ontariomakers #canadianmakers #pictureframes #wallart #gallerywall #woodworking #denimblue #blue💙 #blueeverything #colourpop #createeveryday #electriccitymakers
Are you getting sick of white on wood yet? If so, too bad for you 😀. This is quite easily my favourite finish. The bigger styles and sizes have been going out the door a lot lately and that’s just 👌. . Also throw-back to the time I had two fully-functioning feet! Solo parenting on one foot today should make life more interesting. Just what I’ve been asking the Universe for 🙄 “Please make parenting harder. It’s way too easy! Throw me a curveball!” Done! Thanks everybody for your well wishes. I’ll be fine- my spirit is just not cut out for anything that remotely requires agility or athleticism.

I hurt my foot really bad today trying to “rescue” my kid from the top of an oversized blow-up slide. 🙄. Just be who you are people. I get 0 pleasure from adrenaline rushes and speed. I mean, I know we’re talking about a kiddie slide here BUT STILL. Just leave me alone in the trees with a paintbrush and a box of donuts. I’m good. . . #momcanthang #whendidigetsoold #brutal #oldbones #nozest #leavemebe #pegleg #momlife #momoftwo #momtruth #weekendlife #amongstthetrees #slowismyspeed #turtlespeed #iamwhoiam #klutz #alllegs #whatever #hashtagssuck
Me: “My sweet and perfect angel child, Mama really needs that. Can you bring that back?” . My kid: “Bye fool!” . Every. Single. Time. .

Apologies in advance for my Little Piggies but 🤷🏻‍♀️ today was a good day. And I had a flood of thoughts and feelings as I was packaging up this set of 3 handmade frames. . . Today was the kind of day I used to dream about HARD a few years ago....and I will say that things changed for me the moment I actually made a conscious effort to walk towards those dreams. The shift happened when I stopped tossing these particular thoughts into the “dream” pile and instead started seeing them as things my soul needed, my heart wanted and quite freaking frankly— what I believe I deserved! That being... to live a life that I love. . . So today- with one kid setting up a make-belief grocery store in my workspace and the other Riverdancing on the bubble wrap I needed to use-- I said goodbye to these creations that started in my head but that I now held in my hands. I sat on the floor of my happy place; smiling & surrounded by my babies and I thought.......Yep. I’m here ❤️ Dreams are cool but real life is better. . . #righthere #happynow #reallifeisbetter #livingyourdream #etsysellers #etsyca #etsyto #electriccitymakers #momboss #makermom #handmadeisbetter #thisisit #presence #lifewithlittles #creativepreneur #createeveryday #tinyswirl
How is your summer going? We are at the, “well, hopefully that marker was washable” and “are you going to get hurt doing that? No? Okay then!” stage 🤷🏻‍♀️😴. Having little ones at home all day driving each other crazy is driving me crazy! If you’re interested in a membership to the Hot Mess Mom Club- we meet at the corners of Love Fest & Shit Show. Daily. ❤️💩 . . #isitseptemberyet #kidding #onlysorta #momtruth #momlife #lifewithlittles #crazymaking #etsysellersofinstagram #etsyca #imadethis #whitewash #whitedecor #freshdecor #allwhiteeverything #shopsmall #momboss #kawarthalakes #ptboontario #peterborough #haliburton #shopcanadian #buycanadian #geometric #makingshapes
