My Shaklee Office -From Start to Finish

Our back porch has been a place where things clutter - only usable in the spring and fall and even then, there were always insects and spiders.... it was too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.

This year, we finally decided to take the plunge and remodel.... the goal was simple:
"Too make it usable year round with putting the least amount of money into it!"
So, Here are before pics:

And - here it goes...... we tore it all out - only the concrete floor and roof would be left!

Rebuilding the walls - inside and out

ready for windows and drywall.......

painting -

putting up the wood planks

After four weeks of hard work..... The finished room!

Please let me insert here - I have the very best hard working hubby possible - he did everything by himself and it looks great!

the main desk and door to outside - our goal is to put in a patio and sidewalk as this will be the Shaklee office entrance.....

the Shaklee area

The school area

I love having the extra room -

Christmas at the Kindred's

At our house - we like to keep Christmas simple, relaxing, cozy and fun!

Welcome....... please step on inside....


I have a milkjug at the entrences to the house and shop - I love the look and change out the ribbon and plants every season!

I love our fireplace - we use it for all our heat. Every year at Christmas and Easter, we take our family pic by it.

(All the picture frames are second hand, which I cover in twigs from the trees)

Our tree - I don't like cluttered, so we mostly do lights, and tinsel with just a few bulbs and a handful of orniments -

I hang christmas cards and photos on the back of the cupboards in the dinning room - when I was a kid, my mom would hang them on the doorways - I know to some, it may seem sloppy, but I like walking by and seeing family and friends for the month of Dec.!

the garland and lights on the kiten banister match/wrap around to the ones on the fireplace mantle -

The kids make gingerbread (grahm cracker) houses every year -

Christmas music is a given, no matter what the age!

cookies and candies are made......

If there is snow - playing outside is always fun......

Thanks for stopping by -
Merry Christmas..... keep it simple!!!

Shaklee Christmas Sale

Keep in mind this Christmas shopping season... YOU, the customer, are our everything! Spending $100 at Walmart or another retail or department store during the holidays won't make a difference to anyone; but spending $100 through a home business owner for Christmas means our business can continue, it provides for our families, helps us meet our personal goals, and helps us continue to do what we love without using harsh sales techniques. The big stores will not care about you the way we will because unfortunately, you don't mean that much to them. You mean the world to me!!!
