Do you ever feel like all of a sudden, it’s Christmas time and there are a million things you WANTED to do, but somehow time got away from you and here it is, the end of the year, and you’ve yet to try that hot cocoa recipe from Pinterest?


I’m going to be here to coach you, to share with you, and to provide easy little tasks you can do each week to make sure that THIS YEAR, you’re organized, on schedule, and doing what I value above all else in the world – MAKING MEMORIES WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

Home for the Holidays 2016 Challenge

That’s what the Home for the Holidays Challenge is all about!

This is all about you getting things done in your home. I’m here to coach you and give you direction. Each week, there is a new challenge for you. A task to complete, and an accountability group via Facebook that you can share your achievements. From now through the end of the year, you’ll be able to get started on some projects that you may have been neglecting. And you’ll feel relaxed and prepared for the upcoming holiday season. I will put up blog posts each week helping you along, and post throughout the week on the Bluestone Decorating Facebook Page.
