Havoc to Heaven: A Mom Blogger to Four Teenagers

We made it to the weekend! Let’s celebrate with one final featured blogger for the week.

Here is Missi from Havoc to Heaven.

I am the President and CEO of the Smith House (according to me). I am married to a very patient man and we have four children all within 3 1/2 years of each other – including a set of twins. Let’s just say I log more miles on my car then a NY taxi driver. I am one crazy, busy lady. But – I know that the kids will be off to college soon enough so I relish the craziness for now!

I love to see things that were once havoc turn into heaven on earth. Hence my blog name, havoc-to-heaven! There is nothing more satisfying than a great “before and after”!

I am a self taught designer who has a passion for paint colors, fabrics, vintage accessories and cottage/farmhouse style.

Fun posts to read:
