Happy New Year!!
Where is your secret place to reminisce, write, study, read, or dream? Mine is the Ocean. Every 1st day of the year since 1994, I have loved making my way down to the ocean to enjoy the very 1st Sunrise Of the new year!
Today I had every intention of filming this LIVE, but 10 minutes before sunrise, I saw that i should have registered for the LIVE capabilities for YT YESTERDAY to give it 24 hrs!
WELL!!!! That there was MY 1st OBSTACLE OF 2019!!!
As you see this video unveil; you’ll see the Sun had a little Longer time bursting its rise into the sky because of a Big Cloud obstructing its path to shine!
Needless to say, this became such a clear picture of truth for me and I hope you enjoy the message in this episode.

Are you just as ASTOUNDED that 2018 is over as I am? This Year has been A lot of PURGING & MINIMALIZATION in my life than ever before… and it’s really only just Begun!! maybe that’s why it’s taken me so long to get this post written and share with you my next Imperfectly Perfect Episode. (It Still didn’t come out EXACTLY how I envisioned but After 4 revisions I had mercy on my Pakistanian editor 😅) lol!
Something inside me Feels SO MUCH JOY when I See or Find an old piece of SOMETHING For Super cheap or Free… NOT because I’m happy in the SHAPE that it’s in – Which is usually Rough!! But if I instantly SEE in my head the beauty it COULD BE TRANSFORMED INTO, then I’m drawn to Take it home IF it meets my requirements:
1. Will this FIT into my mini Van now? (Haha – I need a pickup truck for my hauls!)
2. Can I LIFT IT ALONE?
3. Do I have the Tools AND TIME needed to UpCycle and ReCreate it into what I envision it can be?
Usually 1 & 2 are a YES, because “where there’s a WILL ~ There’s a WAY!” 😉 if I want it bad enough, It’ll happen! Haha!
#3? … well, that’s another story! Lol!
I started writing the post several days ago with the verse 2 Corinthians 5:17 in mind and planned on posting it today. But Ironically enough, The Bible App sent me a notification today that This SAME Verse is the Verse of the DAY TODAY!! So it’s confirmation that Someone needs this encouragement… that Whatever Your life looked like this last year or years prior, no matter how messed up you feel like it was -,with stains and scars and ugliness; God wants to Rescue YOU! He wants to Remake YOU! He wants to Restore YOU! He wants to UPCycle Your Life into something so beautiful and useful. Remember he doesn’t necessarily “Need” us but he “Wants” us!
As I transformed my front & side porch this Christmas with things in my attic & garage that I’d been collecting … I strangely felt God’s presence as I enjoyed putting this together so much that I thought I’d share it in a video episode too.
For if I could inspire just one person out there to UpCycle one thing they were thinking of throwing away… or that someone else threw away for no good… and help you see that that’s exactly what God wants to do for YOUR Personal New year 2019; it will be worth all of the hours I’ve spent sharing with you what I did for my family. Let Him Make you a New Creature and let the past GO! 👋
Happy New Year 2019!!!

Sock Wrapping Tip:
~ You know those little black hooks that are on socks when you buy them? Keep the sock Hook on, poke it through the paper and Hang them on the tree. So Why did I not think of this before? 🤷🏽♀️I don’t know but I’m doing it this year! 😁💯 Socks for everyone 😂
We always hide little gifts in the tree.. and typically they’re opened last… you know… that moment when EVERYTHING IS OPENED and there’s something Sad about a bare tree…. It just means you Have Ones to Love.
🎁ENJOY. EVERY. MOMENT! 💯
📢It’s Ready!! JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS 🎁My #1 Of (hopefully 3) Perfectly Imperfect Christmas Gifts to you Guys is now Ready!!
I was getting a little nervous! A week ago I sent this footage to a Fiverr guy… (it’s a freelance service app where you pay ppl in other countries to do projects for you.)
By day 4 Of a 2 day project, the guy who had this project Was finding it challenging to envision what I had in mind for the making of this video. So I decided that with all the Hours I had already explained step by step details 2X , that the language barrier was doin it’s tricks… I decided to Tackle it 100% myself!
I will say, THIS STRETCHED ME with a sleepless night, BUT I’M EXCITED TO REPORT that God helped me be patient with myself and LEARN How to put a project like this together myself from START TO FINISH!!! I obviously still have more learning to do but I’m excited to begin this YouTubing Journey to share Creative & Clean things that pertain to our Living in the 21st century!
Enjoy!! The Link Below the photo👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾

I’ve always loved seeing the different styles of decorating tastes people use for their Christmas trees. ~
Robert & I got paid $200 to set up & tear down this 8 foot tree for a client. I think the poor stand is on its last year!! We thought we might have to tie it to the door knob behind the tree but the lady of the house said they should be Safe since the grandkids aren’t coming home this year 😉😅
If you know anyone who needs a Christmas tree Set up or Decorator ~ I’m your gal 😁
I was listening to Philippians in the Bible app this morning… got a call from a friend to tell her good news that was in my inbox to connect these 2 friends in a possible Partnership that would benefit both of their businesses…. and when I hung up; THIS VERSE was SPOKEN!! 🎁 Amen!! What a PROMISE !!
Someone from Jupiter Island whom I’ve helped refer people of service to her over the last 20 yrs, told me last week that I should Charge Money for this Referral service. 😉 I said, “ok I’ll send you a bill!” She said, “oh but not me!” Lol!!!!
no- I’m So happy God can use me to be His hands and feet extended and refer others to each other. ❤️ It’s beautiful to watch God provide in others lives. He just wants us to USE WHAT IS IN OUR HANDS!! Sometimes what I have to offer may not be the right fit for someone BUT I’m sure I know someone that can help 😁

🤔DO YOU USE or ever THOUGHT of Making a Switch to METAL STRAWS to reduce plastic??
I just got some and I’m excited about them!
I’m enjoying my little porch all decorated for Christmas and working on a New YouTube Episode to show you my Decorating hacks on a budget.
But as I sat there I realized Yet again the IMPORTANTANCE of little yet very POWERFUL & Beautiful things that Fuel my Morning to Empower me to Run Strong for another day! I think we all need that space in our lives. We can fill our days with so much planning, running, working and helping others that we forget to be grateful for the little things that truly fuel us for Clean Living.
Yesterday it was a new found appreciation for my Spode Christmas Glass, A New Metal Straw, a Chocolate Protein Amino Shake, combined with an Empowering Word from the Lord… “I will never leave you nor forsake you!”
May the Christ of Christmas be the CENTER of your Fuel for Going that you need during this busy beautiful season !
