I promised to let you know what happens when you combine a teacher, decorator and cleaning woman all together, in one person.
You find a lady that is surprised at how they all come together.
The reality is that I never remember NOT teaching. First, I taught drill teams dances through my years as drill team Captain. Later, I went off to college for a teaching degree while continuing to teach dance.
Although I didn't finish my degree..yes, stopped my junior year to have babies, I did teach dance and drill team camps throughout my first pregnancy.
During this time I also taught Sunday School and later started home schooling.
So I have been a teacher from age 16 to age 52.
The teacher in me researches everything.
How does this fit in the combination?...just wait.
As I opened my cleaning business, I started to research; thus, leading me to discover how to clean homes without toxic cleaners through the use of all-natural, non-toxic essential oils.
As I discovered more uses for essential oils, I learned I had also found a new place to teach others about health benefits from them as well. Last week, I held my first class. It was GREAT!
The decorator in me had to have fun with my cleaning. Off I went to set up a web page and buy outfits for cleaning. This led to my logoed baseball cap and buckets with my matching labels, attached to color-coordinated buckets and bottles. Fun gloves just allow me to smile through my lemon-oil-safe soft scrub.
(My Hubby thinks I look cute in my cap with my ponytail!)
My decorating business is also opening the doors to allow me to keep the areas clean I helped to decorate.
My decorating at this time is teaching others how to make their houses into homes.
Most of my clients at this time are DIY'ers. It is so much fun to say, "hey, this will look good" and THEY do the labor!
So you see...you take a teacher...give her something to learn about and share with others, throw in anything that could look pretty and let her start a business to clean and decorate your house.
Now for the TEXAS Clean. You take two bloggers, who met through their blogs...let them have one visit and watch how God ties them together.
One year ago, I met Jill in Granbury, Texas for a first-time visit.
We hit it off.
Well, in one year, God decided for both of us to land in the cleaning business world.
So a few weeks ago, we met again in a small town in Texas.
These two women (who would have thought you were crazy last year had you said, "yes, next year you both will have cleaning businesses") met to encourage and talk business.
I had to bring a gift to Jill symbolic of our new status in life! Don't you love it?
What a precious gift to me...a partner in cleaning.
Watch out, TEXAS!...the blogging cleaners are headed your way to clean and decorate.
All of this has taught me that I can do anything to the Glory of God. When He opens a door, I am to walk through it in faith. It has taught me more than I can write...and the lessons are still coming.
So just watch this decorating, teaching, essential oil consultant come into your home and leave it "white glove clean"....I will resist rearranging your decor!
