Hello, I’m Tehlia.
A mom to 4 children that are 4 years old and under. My house is loud, very very loud. I am also a wife, 17 years and counting, who easily drives my husband crazy. We laugh a lot.
My creative worlds all collided while pregnant with baby #4. I was doodling chickens for my older 2, creating printable planners and moving from one tiny house to another.
Shortly after #4 was born my doodles were turning into a children’s book, my printable planners started to simplify and the tiny farm house move in prompted a clean out-declutter-minimalist take over.
Somehow adding a fourth child to our bunch was all it took to gain clarity in my life and business. It didn’t happen instantly. I was in a fog for the first 3 months but when it cleared, with support, I got to work.
I was craving order, ease, simple things and time.
The planners I had been creating were taking on the same pattern. Watercolor flowers and frills were getting replaced with space.
My home was simplifying too. The few toys we had were a breeze to clean up. Laundry was easier, dishes were few and surfaces weren’t collecting things.
At first my drawings were whipped up fast to help teach my children their colors, numbers and shapes. After I decluttered our home I was able to refine the doodles, adding detail but leaving them simple.
Because I was able to simplify our home, I gained more time. Time to create and time to homeschool my children, instead of time spent cleaning. Then I gained even more time to pull together a website and share what I have created with you.
My hope is that I can share with you ways to reach your goals and enjoy the life you are creating. Whether it’s through simplifying your home, reading books to your children, or planning your next steps towards a great year – it’s all doable.
