Life Will Start When My To-Do List Is Done

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on July 8, 2014 in Family, life, Moms |

For the last three months I have had one long to-do list. It seems like every single day I needed to work through it just to get to the next day. If I skip a day nobody did it for me. It lands right on me and my perfectionistic ways. I know exactly when it [...]

It’s In The Bag

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on June 24, 2014 in Holidays, life, Moms |

I don’t know if you are like me, but I can not wrap a gift to save my life. Every holiday when I need to wrap a gift I hand the gift to MR. Simplicity and he takes it and makes the perfect cuts so that he doesn’t have that lop sided section that I [...]

Memories……

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on January 17, 2014 in Family, life, Moms |

  Look around and take a look at what you are saving in your home. Are you saving your kids school papers? Are you saving their toys, baby clothes or books? Or perhaps you are holding onto grandma’s china for your daughter or son. Maybe it is a set of bedroom furniture that is a [...]

The Teacher Learns

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on August 9, 2013 in life |

When you hold yourself out as an “expert” you can often forget that you are still a student. I love knowing that when I interact with my clients and customers that I often ¬†walk away with life lessons. Sometimes I feel like I am learning more than my clients are and I should be paying [...]

Nobody Darns Their Socks Anymore

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on July 19, 2013 in Family, life, Moms |

Think about it: when was the last time you took a needle and thread out and repaired a hole in your sock? Chances are if you are younger than I am you haven’t ever done it. We are now living in a consumable society where we can buy 6 pairs of socks for $6. We [...]

There Is A Sentimental Fool In All Of Us

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on June 4, 2013 in Family, life, Moms |

The more and more I work with clients I find that they have two different issues; either not enough time or they are sentimentally attached to their stuff. For my clients that simply have no time, when I work with them it is fun, easy and they enjoy the process. For my clients that have [...]
