Our mail carrier doesn’t know it yet but today is his lucky day because today is the last day he will be greeted by a pyramid of fragility at my mailbox. The era of painted frames by is over, y’all! // When my little Etsy shop started to take off a few years ago, I was thrilled. Time freedom has always been the most important thing to me, work-wise, and the success of my Etsy business meant I could legitimately avoid a real job indefinitely. That’s all I could ask for, right? // So I thought until the holiday season of 2015, when for most of November and December I was covered in paint, working 10 hours many days to fill orders, and neglecting my family. When it comes to businesses based on linear income (meaning you get paid once for the work you do), I began to understand, you can make a lot of money or you can have time freedom, but not both. // I didn’t like that. So I started researching the alternative, residual income (do the work once, continue to get paid for it), and that’s what led me to join Rodan+ Fields last January. // Has it been easy? No. I still work really hard most days! The difference is that the work I do now will continue to pay me for not only the rest of my life but our children’s as well. Hello: When you sell the best skincare out there, people tend to be fiercely loyal to it. (There are other differences too, such as that now I get to work with some of my best friends, but that’s a post for another day.) // I custom-painted more than 1,200 frames in the past two years. It’s been real, it’s been fun, but I am glad to say I’m done. #residualincome

I stumbled into the painted frame biz quite by accident and it’s been very good to me, but I’m happy to announce that beginning in January my Etsy shop will be pared down to typography prints and notecards and the odd vintage find – right where we started. It’s becoming more and more obvious that my “little” Rodan + Fields gig is what’s going to fund our adoption, and so that’s where I’m going to focus my time and attention, at least until Ryan is home with us. Thank you to everyone who supports our family by supporting either of my businesses! I’m thankful for each of you! #etsyshop #etsyseller #tochinaforryan#adoption #rodanandfields

While helping me package some orders, Claire spotted a #Lizzart print that she couldn’t live without. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. … Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:5,6,9

This photo leaves much to be desired so you may just have to trust me: The vintage cobbler’s bench I finally found time to refinish turned out just right. πŸ‘ŒIn distressing it I uncovered multiple layers of paint, which is my favorite, and the little cabinet on top makes me swoon. What a great back-porch coffee table slash ottoman slash place for kids to color! (It’s from @bougieredneck.) (Isn’t it always?) #etsyshop #etsyseller
