Welcome to My BlogYou'll find fun design info & my thoughts on life
My personal posts are not about painting and design projects as much as it is about my thoughts on life in general. It’s personal. Color and paint choices are personal. I want you to know who you are working with when you choose Jen’s Walls Talk.

Today is Memorial Day. It's a day we stop for a few minutes and remember those that have fallen in service to our country. We thank them and honor them. Why is it such a big deal? Because they chose to serve. They chose to serve knowing full well that it could...read more
I look at my kids and see so much potential. I see so many things they are capable of doing. I blogged a while back about the list of things my almost-to-middle-school daughter wanted to do when she grew up including be a dentist, teacher, beautician, and the first...read more
I hesitate to write this post for fear of sounding ungrateful for my family. That's not it at all. I know my kiddos love me. I love them more than I could have ever imagine. I'm fairly certain they appreciate me--even when I embarrass them. I mean, come on, they...read more
I Crossfit. I have for several years now. While I'm sure that statement makes you think I'm some sort of muscle bound crazy lady, that's not exactly what I'd call myself. Really and truly at it's core, I believe Crossfit to be a functional fitness kind of program....read more
If you've seen any of my recent videos on my Facebook page or Instagram, then you know we're remodeling our bathroom. I'm thankful the main part of the work is done. New tub and tile, and, of course, new paint on the walls. It's almost finished, so now we're adding...read more
"She's shy." That's what people told me when I was young. A lot. Often I heard that phrase when being introduced to someone new, or if people would talk to me, or if I was in a new situation. She's shy. If you hear something often enough, you'll believe it to be...read more
I have scars. They are from various things. I have a scar on my leg from doing the rope climb at the gym several months ago. I have extra spider veins on my legs from sparring and colliding with what would seem to be a tree, but was, in reality, a really...read more
Do you ever watch Chip & Jojo? They are favorites at our house. (That's "Fixer Upper" on HGTV for those of you that don't know them yet.) I like to think we channel our inner Chip & Joanna Gaines when we work on projects together, my hubby and me. If you are...read more
Who do I work for? Simply put, you. I get to come into your space, whether home or office, and help create a customized environment. That's a privilege I enjoy as one who does color consulting and specialty painting. What type of homes do I create specialty paint...read more
I love that my husband is handy...as in, really handy. (He makes furniture and cabinetry for a living, so I hope he's handy!) But sometimes it's incredibly thrifty to have a handy husband--like when you realize that the tiles are ready to squish into the wall...read more
That's what it feels like when you're in business for yourself. I offer my services to you. I offer me to you. That's what it feels like. I know logically it's not me you're turning down. It's not Jennille you don't have use for. You are just not in need...read more
I read a lot (not as much as I'd like, but probably more than most). Readers are leaders. Leaders are readers. That's what they say, right? Currently, one of the books I'm reading is this one: Be Awakened--A New You in 40 Days by Adam Davis. It's a simple format...read more
Part of my Jen's Walls Talk business is to do color consults for clients. It might be someone who just closed on a new home, and they don't feel like they have a clue as to where to begin with colors. It's my job to help them find their inspiration and to run with...read more
As I was driving down the road last Sunday morning, a bird was flying in front of us. It wasn't a big bird. It was probably a swallow. It had something in it's clutched feet...some sort of food source like a field mouse, or the like. It's food was almost as big as...read more
I can only take it so long. I like sports. I like watching my kids play sports. I even enjoy participating, but I can only take so much football...and then I have to walk away. Today was Super Bowl 51. I watched for a while, but then I had to get up and do...read more
I never experienced growing pains as a child, but both of my kiddos have. Aching soreness that seems to leave as quickly as it starts. Life is like that sometimes. We're going through something, and then all of a sudden we're looking back at it...thankful it's...read more
The belt of truth piece is another installment of the the full armor of God theme, as outlined in Ephesians 6. It was fashioned in the style of the balteus, as worn by the Roman soldiers.read more
Hand Painted Shield of Faith This piece is a part of the Tower Mountain room in the E-Free student center. It's one of the classrooms for the younger children (ages Kindergarten-2nd grade). The over arching theme is a knight/castle tower idea, utilizing the full...read more
