SHINE ON and KITCHEN "re-MODEL" - lots of UPDATES


This was the theme for my TC VEGAS event this year. Next year, 2017 is all about something POWERFUL. Yes, I will announce the theme January 1st. I wanted to share one of the workshops that I taught this year. We have people come from around the world to the event. If you want to be added to the wait list contact:



This is my 7"x 9" 3 ring binder that are at part of my WANDERLUST collection. I designed this new TC artwork in GOLD FOIL and placed  them on my album. The workshop was all about MAKING YOUR DREAMS HAPPEN IN LIFE!!!!


I have been very busy with trying to juggle so many deadlines and projects. Today was fun in that we were designing new TC Silhouette designs and using the BRAND NEW TC Amazon Silhouette Bundle Cameo 3. YOU will LOVE this new machine.
I often hear people are so intimidated by the die cut machine world. No worries... we have PLANS to make it easier for all of you and educate and inspire along the way.

NOW on a personal note.... my kitchen is a mess and a learning experience. Coming home to the kitchen done was a shock. However, more shocking was the quality of the work, the holes in the walls, the dirt and derby in the cabinets and the crooked tiles. Did I mention the contractor used the WRONG tiles and decided to do a different pattern than the one I had asked for. I could go on and on.  

I  thought I would share some of the photos of the detailed work that happened in my kitchen remodel.


I had granite countertops and they took them off to put on the new white marble quartz design. They used a tool and damaged my cabinets.


The grout was already cracking, it was uneven and was not sealed. 
Did I mention that this is not the size or design I had asked for?




The island was finished but it was the wrong size. They took it out to use in other areas of the house so that it was not a total loss.


The tile was completely taken off on Tuesday. The new contractor could not get it better without taking it all off. The countertops were perfect here.



This was ripped paint off the panel by my refrigerator. Such a messy job!


All my cabinets inside are covered in dirt and debris. They covered "nothing" and now there is a mess.



I HATE confrontation so I decided to think, ponder and sleep on it when I first saw it. I took lots of photos like the ones I just posted. I emailed my contractor the next day and asked to meet with him asap. I knew from meeting with him that he did not "get" the issues with quality and I was overwhelmed knowing he could not do the job as desired.  He said he was "out of funds" and needed me to give him $2,000 for dollars and that he wanted to just replace a few of the tiles to be more even. I told him I would not give him "one more penny" to correct his mistakes. 

Thankfully, I contacted someone from the ordeal that I did not realize did this type of work (his son played baseball with Zach). He is known for quality and honesty and his company came in to save the day. 

Right now, all the tiles were taken off the walls and the large island is gone. Yes, the first contractor did not do the size I had asked for. I wanted to make sure I had been fair and honest to my first contractor. I was lucky in that I knew not to give my first contractor more than was required when he started my project. 

Thankfully, I had paid a bigger amount that covered the work that was done correctly and is fair for what was done. I will be posting photos of the after. I have absolutely loved "remodeling" our home in the last year. I believe in making our home the PLACE we most want to be and a SAFE HAVEN from the crazy world.

I'm shocked at that poor quality of workmanship, too! I'm not someone comfortable with confrontation, either...it would have made me sick to have to deal with someone like that! 😣

WOW!! I can't believe they left your kitchen like that. It was truly awful...I am so sorry...what a stressful situation!!!

Wow, I can't believe a contractor would leave a job like that. I admire the way you handled yourself. I would have been disappointed as well. It is going to look fabulous when it is finished!
