Articles

 The new magazine-style format of the blog will include posts that have three elements: 1) a fun repurposed or before-and-after idea, 2) a practical real-life article to inspire you to repurpose your own struggles or challenges into growth opportunities, and 3) a reading recommendation for you to consider. Michelle loves books, all things trash-to-treasure, and helping women discover hope - something she hopes you enjoy in every issue!

Thank you, from Michelle

Some time ago, I was actively blogging on Trash to Treasure Decorating (www.trashtotreasuredecorating.com) and on Faith Creativity Life. Life changed, I got busy with my career and had to just let it go for a while. Recently, I relaunched my website on a new platform and incorporated the blogs from both places into one. It’s […]

Do You Know Your Risk for Ovarian Cancer?

Blessings…What Does that Really Mean?

How do you sign your e-mails or your letters to people? I sign many greetings with “Love, Michelle.” That’s because much of what I write is to family and close friends. Business correspondence, I sign with “Regards,” or “Sincerely.” But what about the in-between communication? Sometimes “love” is too familiar, but “regards” is too stuffy. […]

I went to church last night, and so today instead of being at church I’m out on the deck reading. No makeup. No shower. I’ve scrolled through my IG feeds and there are a billion perfect photos of bloggers, writers and influencers all professionally staged, touched up, filtered. I want to stay real #nomask #nofilter . No fake perfection. But it’s tough. Those photos are lovely! The perfect and polished is such a magnet. I could create my business and public persona that way, but I’m fighting the illusion and wanting to rebel against the norm. To be a #nonconformist in the online realm of writers and bloggers. Can I get an amen from the other rebels out there? This isn’t about how I see beauty but in how I see reality.
