Keeping it Simple and Keeping it Real!

Domestic Productions are abundant at our home. We have new recipes, new home projects, new exercise plans, all within the realm of our little bitty lives that we are living big in Jesus Christ and His abundant blessing.

To keep this as simple as possible, I want to post some of the productions that have been "manufactured" with my ever active hands. Some have been 15 minutes, others have been 15 days BUT I have completed all I've set my hand to do and that makes me feel good!

So I'm going to try and keep to my 15 minute goal mark to my posts and not get "blogged". (That means not getting bogged down with my blog!) I have a lot that the Lord Jesus has called me to do and I am READY to get 'er done.

Keeping it Simple and Keeping it Real!

Why is something like this a healthy venture? Because being productive, changing your environment for the better, and accomplishing a goal are key markers for a feeling of good health.

1. Have a plan. (I like written, others like mental)
2. Get started! Don't procrastinate.
3. Finish what you start.

Number one, I am great with lists and plans. Number two and three are hard for me! BUT it can be done; if I can do it, you can do it.

My first Home Project was to reupholster our dining room chairs. After many visits to JoAnn Fabrics and wrestling with the wrong size foam (another story) I finally got them done and (whew) they look fabulous. If you want to do this, watch Youtube videos and GO FOR IT!

Here's my simple and real chair project...

Obviously, my cat loves to be the center of attention...
(Just keep looking at the cat and not the chairs, please)

What's the deal with my cat in all the pictures?

My finished chairs!!

My goal and reminder to myself...It's not about perfection, it's about production.  "Redeeming the time wisely with the Lord in what He has called me to do" is the motto for today. (What He's called me to do is important. Not just what I want to do.)

That being said, my chairs look awesome and my family is being blessed by the fruit of my hands.

What home projects do you have planned this season?

I'm glad you're back to blogging! Great new word ~ blogged down; I've been there.

Love it. Now I have to think about what covering my chairs will need after we get the house painted. hmm.

I have to start a blog for school. Have you tried anyone else beside Blogspot? My teacher suggested blogger but I don't like the ads they have.

Your house getting painted is a great project! You'll certainly being ready for new colors after that. This will give you time to check out 50% sales on your fabric and foam.

Blogger is blogspot. I have not experienced any problem with blogger except you can't cut and paste out of Microsoft Word for your posts. It messes up the html somehow. (I know, I experienced it.)

You don't have to choose to show ads, just your blog. It's been really user friendly for me.
