CanvasPop Family Photo

Have you heard about a CanvasPop yet? I just found this great company and ordered a family canvas picture. It's 16" x 24". I selected to have the photo wrapped around the frame. 
Today it arrived and I love it!!
 I should have ordered another one for Jason and Sharon to put on their wall too. 

This picture is from Jason and Sharon's wedding. It's one of the better family pictures we have together. 
 It's hard to take a picture of a picture to help you visualize how cool it is and the dimension. I have it next to my wooden sign of the 9 B's. I may change it around my house, but I was so excited to receive it and put it on the wall immediately. It's on the wall exiting my kitchen. Now every time I exit the kitchen I see my beautiful family. Even while I am in my kitchen where our family gathers all the time, we can enjoy my new canvas family picture.
 This picture shows the wrapped edge of our CanvasPop picture (there isn't a white line, it's just the flash shining on the edge - it is a seamless wrapped picture). 
Another angle of our new CanvasPop family picture. I need to order more because I love canvas pictures. There are lots of options from family photos to landscape photos. Let the pictures you've taken come to life by adding them to your wall!

If you are interested in getting a canvas picture, I completely recommend CanvasPop
The unexpected extra that came with my picture was 2 different sizes of a picture nails. How cool is it to have everything you will need to immediately add it to the wall? I love that they included the nail. 

Oh, I'll show you what the back of the picture looks like:
It comes with a hanging wire very professionally done and ready to add to your wall. 

I'm in love with this CanvasPop and will be ordering additional pictures for me and my family.

Thanks CanvasPop! I love my new picture!

Mopping Your Floor

One of my customers recently moved to a new house. Today was the first clean I did in this new house. They originally wanted me to do the final clean after the previous owners moved out. However, they found out that the previous owners were going to have it professionally cleaned by some other service before they closed on the house. 

The "Professionally Cleaning People" the previous owners used seriously don't know how to mop a floor, and the previous owners probably didn't either. The final clean was 12 days ago and the hardwood floors made my mop water - MUD!

I've been cleaning this customer for quite a long time and I understand that they moved their stuff in, but seriously .... there is NO way they made those floors that dirty. It's going to take me a few cleanings to get the mop water from turning from MUD to clean water! So dirty! I had to change the water in my mop bucket 3 times and every time it became black mud water again. 

There were so many things that these "Professionally Cleaners" missed that I just want to shake my head at their service. 

Luckily for the new owners of my customers old house, they seriously got one Sparkling Clean house to move into. 

Also, they didn't have very many carpeted areas, but I had to empty my vacuum bag 4 times from all the debris I picked up. 

If you live in the Boise / Meridian Idaho area and want a cleaning service that actually gets your home clean - please call me. I do have a couple of openings available. You get a full GOOD clean EVERY TIME! That is why my company is called Sparkling Clean, because that is what you get from me. 

My business number is 884-1775. Unfortunately I don't do one time only cleans. I only take on weekly or bi-weekly customers.

Guest Blogger: Brady's Ear Periced

Guest Blogger: Brady

There was something I've wanted to do for about a year now, that that was getting my ears pierced. It's probably true that I went from the golden child to a demon child since I came out of the closet back in 2013; a little more loose and accepting with morality, a little more loose and accepting with alcohol, a little more loose and accepting with tattoos, and a little more loose and accepting with body jewelry. I just see it as another way of self expression.

Okay, I have to admit, I didn't really contemplate ever getting my ears pierced until my ex boyfriend did it. I was a little bit frustrated with the idea that a boy would get his ears pierced, but you know what, they kind of looked good, and they did help with his appearance in a psychological way instead of a physical one. It rather makes a statement in of itself, that you go against social norms and conservative viewpoints, that you are an independent person, capable of making your own decisions, and that you are proud to be who you are.

I decided that it would help with my own image as well. It was something that I wanted to do for myself, to put out the same visual statements. Also, I was just entertaining the thought of getting my ears pierced in the mirror one day, immediately thought that I would reject the idea all together. However, something unexpected happened. The thought stayed, it wasn't welcome or unwelcome, but in the mirror I thought to myself that it would look kind of cute. I really wanted to create some uniquely identifying asymmetry to my character. It does look rather attractive right now, but the end result will be small hoops hanging from the top of my left ear (yes that is my left in the picture, I know I flipped it, but that is how I see myself in the mirror). 

So, after I got my tax return in, had a little spending money, I told myself that I would rather do this for myself than anything else. I really wanted it, even more than a desktop computer. I looked up online of places I could do it at, went to a wonderful piercing studio called Iris Body Piercing, and spent about $200 to have a gentleman stick me a few times with a giant needle (yes it hurt for a second, but the pain subsides quickly). So here I am, four piercings later, satisfied, pleasantly happy, and a little more defined.
