I'm So Excited!


Guess what? In case you didn't see the post, Life At It's Finest! officially reached 50 followers to the giveaway is a go! Make sure you get your entry in by midnight on Friday to have a chance to win some sassy pins (and *$!)

In other news, I am super excited to reveal a new extension of Life At It's Finest!:


Most of you may know this about me, but I have always loved anything artsy and tried to share my creations with others from a very young age. Just ask my mom, I used to paint rocks and sticks and sell them the the neighbors! {they were always so nice to spare a nickle for the cause!}

I officially started Father of Joy! Designs back in the summer of 2005. I was living back at home with my parents during the summer break while also working as a intern at a church and at a bank as a teller {maybe one day I'll tell you about the day I was missing $1,000. oops! it was eventually found, in case you were worried.} I spent a great deal of my free time painting that summer and found that many people were interested in what I was creating. I took a chance, bought a booth at a craft fair and was pleasantly surprised to find that two solid weeks of painting paid off and almost all of what I made for the event sold!

Since those days, life has somewhat gotten in the way of FOJ. {college, graduate school, marriage, a dog and a job can do that to you.} I know that it is now time to once again share my passion with others. Father Of Joy! Designs has expanded and will offer a whole host of different creative items: some paintings, blog designs, sewing creations.. the list could go on. It's still a work in progress, but I hope you'll stop by and see what it's all about!

I am currently trying to build up a portfolio, so if you know of anyone who would like a new blog header, please send them my way! They can view the blog at or email me at fatherofjoy{at}gmail dot com.

Here's to new and exciting things!



  1. YAY!!! This is so cool! My blog could def use a face lift. I know what you mean about life getting in the way. I used to always pimp my own blog with fun creative designs of my own, back in the xanga days! HA! Now I'll think, I should do that... hmmm... I should just write a blog post since it's been over a month. Anyway - you can experiment on me if you want!

  2. I LOVE my blog header. You did such a great job on it.


Thanks for commenting- I love hearing from readers!
