LIFE RIGHT NOW....


The best package came to my office. I'm so blessed to work with Canon. I am printing today and preparing to make a TC Canon video for Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.BIG things are happening that you are going to be excited about!!!!! Just appreciating the many ways to document life. I'm the biggest CANON fan. Thank you Canon for the cameras and fun package. It was like Christmas!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much Canon for being amazing and I love being a spokesperson for you. #dreamcometrue.



I am loving working today with Brie and Bridget. We are working on my Joann Headquarters presentation.
I surround myself with those that love and believe in me.
I want them to be happy and want to come to work.

I am just so thankful for my company, my staff and the blessing of feeling inspired every single day. I have the best job in the entire UNIVERSE!!!!!!!!


Yesterday was amazing in that it was JUST what I needed. I went to Relief Society at church and the lesson was JUST what had been on my mind. It was how in life we have HARD times and we have to look and find JOY even in the midst of hard times. My friend Katherine gave the lesson. It was beautiful. I was sitting and listening and reflecting on my life in the past couple of years. I can honestly say that the hard times definitely can knock you down. I can honestly say that I have been at my lowest and known what it was like to feel so sad. I also knew that it was the time that I turned to my Heavenly Father first. I was on my knees praying more than I ever had in my entire life. I knew that I could not do this on my own.

I knew that Ty's death would FOREVER change the rest of my life. It would change my children's life. I was now a single mother and I was not prepared for all the changes. For the first month, after he died- I was in the biggest FOG. I don't know if this is the best way to describe it. I was used to his strong presence in my life, our home... I know that for me it was a blessing to have the 18 months to say goodbye with his cancer. We had talked and hoped  for the blessing of FIVE more years. We talked privately about the fact that this cancer was never going to be cured. He tried to prepare me at times to be alone. He wanted to know that I would be strong and keep going. I knew that I had to FIGHT just as hard to LIVE LIFE after he died. I had to not dwell in the darkest times, but be HAPPY again. It was like a light bulb went off one day. I woke up and had been BEGGING Heavenly Father to help me have PEACE and JOY and feel like myself in some small way again. I had survivors guilt. My heart was heavy with pain. I have always been happy and very positive in life. This was NOT like me to feel so discouraged. 

Then it happened. God helped lift me. I went the entire day without crying. It was a true miracle and I laughed, smiled and knew I would be okay. I had felt like I was me again. I knew that Tyler would be so happy for me.  I knew my kids would have their mother back. I know that LIFE can be hard. Each day things happen and we have to make the decision on how we react to it. Bitter or Better?????  I want to be better from my trials. They have refined me. It really does make me appreciate the EVERYDAY moments. I will NEVER look at life the same way again. I will LIVE every day with purpose, JOY and know that it's all about how you LOOK at the things that are hard. We all have trials and I was reminded yesterday in the lesson, that it's really how you FACE  them and you can be HAPPY during the darkest times. 

I am happy. I am going to be FEARLESS in living LIFE and hopefully to make a positive difference in the world. I can FACE hard things and so can you. I tell myself that I am strong and confident in myself. I am not giving up on living life to the fullest because this is what God would want from me and each of you. This is what I am talking about to 900 people at Joann Headquarters on March 5th. I am honored to share my story, my heart and my PASSION for living life to the fullest. I am sharing my business journey and how I have grown my company and brand. I feel outrageously BLESSED.

Hi gorgeous Teresa honey. Firstly I'm so sorry it's been a while since I've commented here. Life has been crazy busy in a good way.. lots of seed sowing to sell gorgeous flower/vegetable/perennial plants at a local landscape company here in Nelson, NZ. Also my gift tags which are like small works of art are selling really well at a gorgeous florist shop in Christchurch and he has just given me two more big orders. Lots has been happening in my life.. some good, some really emotionally draining - so THANK YOU THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for this post. I NEEDED to read this today... The one thing I need to do is STOP apologising for who I am.. deep down I truly love who I am even though no-one and I mean NO-ONE, not even my husband, truly understand who I am and just make fun of me. I now I'm okay and that is all that matters! Love you sweetheart, so much!

Thank you for being faithful and sharing. God is so good. He led me to your blog today. While I have admired your work and purchased so many of your products, this was my first visit to your blog. Your words resonated with what I was feeling and what I needed to hear. So again, thank you for your faithfulness.
