And How THAT Can Make YOUR Life Wonderful!


Have you heard about those people that
go home at night to a clean house?
You’ve visited her home, and you know
it is warm and inviting, and pretty much perfect.
And of course, she always gives great gifts,
always has her meals planned, and her kids never fight.
And she has time to go to her comfy-cozy happy place!
Yep, disgusting.
But secretly, you wish you could live there! 
Hi! I’m Misty, the owner/designer at Stardust By Misty,
and I know exactly how you feel,
so I’m coming to your rescue!
I’d like to say I can make ALL your dreams and wishes come true
and give you everything your heart desires.
But we all know that probably isn’t going to happen,
especially the kids-not-fighting part.
I do think, though, that I can set you on the path to An Almost Perfect Home.
Well, more like A Really Not Perfect but Still Quite Lovely Home. Ready to get started?
First let me introduce myself real quick-like,
so we can get that out of the way.
This picture shows you
a few of my favorite things.  Yes, the Waylon Jennings 
8-track tape definitely dates me!
I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was a kid.
I and a friend of mine spent many hours making doll clothes by hand,
doorstops out of Reader’s Digest magazines, puppets, and more,
with the intention of getting rich selling them to all our neighbors.
I remember loading our treasures into my wagon and pulling it around the neighborhood.
It turned out that salesmanship was not our strong suit, however.
I DON’T recall that we ever got brave enough to actually go knocking on doors
to show people our wares. Guess we thought if we kept wandering around,
people would flock to us. Hmmmmm, not so much.
The comfy-cozy part also started when I was young.
I had to share a bedroom, like many of us did, and I just wanted a spot of my own.
So I adopted the corner behind the overstuffed chair in the living room.
I kept a pillow and blanket there, a few hidden snacks,
and I spent many an hour cuddled up reading books.
I still love to design and create,
I’ve greatly improved my selling techniques,
and having a comfy-cozy spot to curl up and read or draw or write is still a priority for me.
To get started on YOUR
Path to Perfection,
or Lovely Imperfection,
check out my blogs that will be posted on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays,
On Mondays, I will feature one of the pieces I’ve made and tell you
a little bit about it.
Wednesday’s blog will show you how you can implement the piece
in your own home.
I will also have tons of thoughts and pictures
for creating your own happy place. LOTS of ideas!!
Friday’s blog will, for the most part, be random.
I may talk about awesome color combinations,
or if I’ve killed my new African Violet yet,
or how some stuffed animals seem like they are
paying more attention to me than anybody else is.
I hope you’ll decide to follow along!
