A little peek into the Function HQ (my studio).
I’ve never been great at making my spaces look Pinterest-worthy (I think I’m too practical for overly pretty things), but this little work-in-progress space of mine is starting to feel cozy.
We basically bought our house because it had such bright natural light and a separation between office space and living space.
This nook is where I can lay back with a good book or my iPad and sketch away when I’m tired of sitting in front of my computer screen.
And that beauty of a painting? That’s all @taylorleepaints 😍
I’ll share more soon! I’m finishing a few projects like a barn door for the closet and a peg board shelving unit.
Morning run with my girl ✔️

Love my new office space. The morning light is so good for my soul (I can’t seem to sleep past 7 anymore anyways 🤷♀️) Create a life you love 💗 Stop thinking you’re gonna win the lottery or marry rich (haha well maybe 😉) One of my fave quotes “Don’t wish for it; work for it!” Because you work hard, you can play hard (i.e. pink notebook💕) 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉
Message me if you wanna create a life you love. Or skin you love. Or want help creating your own little office nook! So fun!!
My dream is to one day rent my own office/studio space with plenty of natural light and room to be creative. ✨ What’s yours? 👇🏻 #thehustleneverstops#office#ikea

“If it’s one thing I’m willing to bet on it’s myself” .
I actually would have NEVER said that about myself before this coaching gig. .
I have learned through the careful reflections that are a part of doing this lifestyle coaching gig that I was purposely lower my expectations of myself for fear I would not hit them. .
I would also lower the expectations others had for me because of the same fear of not following through. 🤦🏻♀️
That is changing! Who thinks about their life and says “I want to be average... I want to just reach the medium level of what I can do “ .. not everyday but most days I can tell that inner self talk to shut the hell up because it doesn’t run the show anymore. .
Now I am running a business which I NEVER in a million years wanted to do because of the risk usually involved.. and a business that has other people counting on me to follow through with my commitment to myself to get healthy. .
Now before you shut down and go “ I can’t barley function myself let alone help others!” .
I remember that I am doing this and if I can you can !! ... and I know their is no failure unless I stop moving forward.
Never stop moving forward .. find the things that bring you joy and do those more often... walk in the direction of your BEST you!

I am looking 2️⃣5️⃣ woman for my coach mentor ship! I want it to be the best fall ever and to all my coaches to have confidence and extra spending cash going into the holidays ! .
Simple, inviting, and cozy office nook with loads of light 🖥🖋✨ Whatever your home renovation needs are, Marks-Woods Construction is here to help you create the home you’ve always wanted.
I absolutely love how candid & honest little kids are. They tell it like it is without being rude or judgmental. They are innocent and real. Yesterday we were out boating on the lake and we drove by the new house. I said to my 6 yo niece, that I just couldn’t wait to live there and I wish I was already there. Her reply to me- “Auntie Missy, you have to be patient with a happy heart”. 🤔 Yup,
She’s 100% right.⠀
Being patient is something I’m not always good at. I have learned to be better over the years. But it’s still not easy. This entire process of buying & selling a home isn’t easy. It’s out of your hands, there is nothing you can really do but wait. And like Bella says, do it with a happy heart.⠀
So if you are struggling just remember these words of a sweet little 6 year old. I believe having a happy heart can get you through the trying & tough times.⠀
I keep thinking about this quote from her, she says it quite often but it’s only when it really needs to be said. I really think it needs to be made into a sign for her room, maybe even for the shop?! What do you think! “Be patient with a happy heart.” -Bella age 6
It’s the first overcast rainy day in AGES, and it’s put me in proper ‘nesting mode’. I’m loving the impetus I had this morning to rearrange everything. 😅
My desk is now easy to access, in a cosy nook under the stairs, which will hopefully help me avoid procrastinating!! 🤭(and help me work from home the next 2 weeks whilst juggling childcare and the kitchen installation!)
I’m very much looking forward to faffing about and making this space homely and pretty. -large mirror and some botanical prints for starters I think 🤔
Any suggestions for staircase or office nook very welcome! 🙏
Painting the staircase and replacing the stair carpet is on my agenda for next year.
I’m also planning to strip the oak floorboards and go for a lighter colour, but 🤫 don’t tell me E&E. He’ll kill me as we only had the floorboards and carpet laid when we moved in 18 months ago! 😬 🙊
For now, I’m going to light the open fire this evening🔥 and pour a glass of vino 🍷- I think I have earned it!
Office nook complete❤️. This space had many different designs/decor over the years but this one is my fav! Simple and functional. Finally a spot to pay the bills, meal, and activity plan. I have included a few different options to make the space inviting when the weather cools off with a sheep skin rug to throw on the wood bench. Peel and stick wallpaper from @homedepot decor items including the desk from @homesensecanada and wood bench custom made from Last Mountain Timber, an amazing company out of Regina Beach. #officenook#office#officedecor#wallpaper#wallpaperdecor#farmhouse#eclecticdecor#eclectichome
