beve's Vintage Camper Studio: Demolition Part I

Alrighty! We've made some significant progress on our vintage camper studio project. I had originally been saying "demolition," but after getting in there and working, I think it's more accurate to call it a "deconstruction." The reason is I'm trying to keep the linoleum floor and the walls as intact as possible so that I don't have to do replace them. I'm hoping to put new flooring right over top of the existing linoleum and to simply paint over the walls and ceiling.. and *hopefully* wallpaper my desk area. You can see how the studio are is looking without the dinette set...

beve's BIG Project: A Vintage Camper Studio

I am very excited to announce that in a few months time, we will have a new, just-down-the-hill-from-my-house beve studio - a renovated vintage camper!

These probably weren't the wisest moves for my business and I definitely felt and feel self-conscious about those choices, but I think they were necessary to not feel totally overwhelmed this past year.

A Millennial Mom's Mantra: Pretty Doesn't Have to be Perfect

Mommy guilt. We've all felt it - the sense of failure when we see a perfect-looking toddler birthday party on Pinterest or a perfectly stylized Instagram shot and know that our efforts simply don't measure up. For many of us, this social media-induced feeling is very familiar. (Psst! The kids don't care!!) In addition to this guilt, I also feel self-conscious that my blog and social media posts are not polished enough to represent a small, but growing business. This is a big reason why I have ten or more unfinished blog posts of projects I've done that just don't...
