Spring Cleaning Home and Life

Spring has Sprung!!  Time for spring cleaning.  Not only should we spring clean our home but it’s also a good time to do some self-cleansing.  When we have too many things in our home, it not only clutters the home but our mind also. I don’t know about you but my mind is cluttered enough these days.

So, this spring I want to challenge you to clean out your closets, drawers, cupboards, and fridge.  When you do this, really think about what you have and why you have it.  Sell, donate, and trash anything you are no longer using.  Yes, even the things that you are holding onto because you may need them ONE day.

Designing Home and Life

What a week!!  I have been doing a lot of reflection, research and planning.  My desire has always been to serve others and offer them assistance with their home and their life.  So, this week I took a step back to evaluate my website, my social media, and my message.  Unfortunately, it did not seem clear to me.  I had to ask myself, if I could not clearly define my message, how was I to expect you to?  I love home renovations and space planning.  I believe, making your home feel like you and creating a safe and relaxing space to step away from the outside world, will allow you to reset and recharge.  I also believe in self-love and living your best life.  In order to do this, it is important to take care of all aspects of your life.  Sustainable living is not just recycling.  Living more with less.  Living debt-free.  Using eco-friendly products for you and your home.  There is so much more.  To cover all of these topics that I love and believe in so much, I have decided to re-brand.  The new company is Designing Home and Life.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle – Remodeling

As a residential drafter and designer, I make it a priority to share with my clients the importance of being conscious of the three R’s.  Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. 

When going into a project, whether it is an addition, a remodel or a brand-new build, I’m always thinking throughout the process – how I can not only keep the carbon footprint to a minimum, but also how to be resourceful with the new and how to make suggestions for being responsible with the used.
