Colorful Happy Home
Hello! I had a bit of an epiphany about my life and my blog and I am so excited to share it!! When I started blogging I never imagined that I would be blogging daily almost nine years later. I can say with all sincerity that blogging saved my life. I started blogging because I was lonely and what I found is an AMAZING community of lovely, beautiful people who share my love of creating. I’ve found life-long friends and so much more!
Colorful Happy Home
As I went through my divorce I went through a super difficult time and I lost my joy for creating. I was just trying to survive one day at a time. Over the past year as we’ve moved and we have started healing, I feel like I am starting to feel alive again. I kind of lost who I was as I was going through such a difficult time. I also realized that mean comments and negativity can only hurt me if I let them. Strong women build each other up and that is the community I want to be a part of and help contribute toward. I did some soul searching and realized that I missed the COLORFUL happy home I had created with my family.
One of the things that really makes my heart sing is COLOR. I think we love our new community because it’s so COLORFUL. Creating a COLORFUL home has always made me happy and over the past nine years I’ve loved sharing COLORFUL projects on the blog.
I was talking a couple of weeks ago with a friend and saying that I felt like I lost touch with what my “style” is. She said – your style is COLOR. And of course – she was right.
COLOR is what makes me happy and always has.
And it makes so much sense since we live in a community based on COLORFUL homes, I am embracing COLOR in my life again. Last week I made a COLORFUL Spring sign for my porch:

I really liked this post 🙂 a few years ago, I went through a really dark time in my life. It took a couple of years to recover, but when I did… everything seemed brighter and happier. Glad you found your rainbow!
Thank you Amy!!! I am glad things are better for you too. Thanks for commenting. It means a lot to me!!
Oh Jen, I am so happy you are embracing your colorful style. I have followed you from the beginning of my blogging journey. You have always inspired me. TATTERED TOTS AND JELLO will always be on my side bar. You helped launch my blogging. You featured my tiny little patio many years ago. I will be forever grateful. You keep going girl, you are an inspiration to many of us little bloggers, that just keep blogging along. Your future is always bright, as long as you have the faith to go forward.
Oh Karie –

Tired of all the quiet grey around us? I still love it (on walls) but am with you in adding happy color touches.
Love the sign you made, so happy, so different. 🙂
Thanks!! I still love grey but I am so happy to add color too!! Thanks for stopping by!!
Such a beautiful home, Jen! Love the colours, such a beachy feel. I could just imagine making the top room my home office. It definitely wouldn’t feel like work 🙂
