A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

The walls that bounce back

I have heard it said it takes approximately six months to make a house feel like a home, I would challenge you to aim for a month. The thought of living in a state of unfinished business for six months makes me crazy. However, we have come across a few stumbling blocks in making our house feel like a home. In particular, hammering a nail into our walls is no easy task. As a result, our collection of artwork has predominately remained propped against walls. Undecided whether we are going to purchase/make a bench, console or coat rack for our front entry I decided to take a handful of photos, some japanese masking tape and create a temporary photo installation. It is a great way to get those photos off the computer and much less expensive than having them all printed, matted and framed. For now, this is a good temporary solution to a longer term design dilemma.
