Growing up in the family painting business, at a very young
age, I always felt going to work with my parents was a chore, something I had
to do. After high school I went into
another profession, the profession I always dreamed of being involved in, law
enforcement. Approximately 20 years into
the job, I was injured, causing me to leave my profession. I was electrocuted in 2006, while
disassembling a marijuana grow. I had
injuries that were unexplained. My
nervous system had been destroyed.
It’s funny how things turn out. My dad invented a painting tool called the
U-Stripe It & Design Tool. This tool
helped him on many jobs when he had to paint stripes on walls, especially in
two story foyers. This tool saved him
hours if not days when he used it, making his job so much easier.
After my injury, believing in this tool, I helped my dad
patent it and brought it to the market for the everyday person. While trying to sell the tool, I had to paint
some rooms myself to get photos and videos.
Prior to using the tool for stripes or other designs, I had to paint the
base color. It was at that time when I
realized painting wasn’t a chore anymore that it would become my medicine. Painting became therapeutic for me. I always heard of this, but never believed
I had unknown pains in my body from the electrocution. The only way to help me was through various
medications and that was not the answer only a band aide for a small amount of
time. I would paint these rooms and
found myself concentrating on the ceiling line, trying not to get the wall
paint on the ceiling, concentrating on my breathing and my hand motion with the
paint brush. I then would concentrate
around the woodwork, windows, etc. Even
putting the tape on the woodwork prior to painting helped because I had to make
sure the tape was properly secured so the paint didn’t bleed. While concentrating on my work, I had
forgotten about the pain in my body. I
felt very relaxed, free of pain, free of anxiety and free of tension.
Adding the U-Stripe It & Design Tool into the equation
just helps with creating designs in your room.
This adds more fun to your painting projects. There is not a better feeling in stepping
back and admiring the project you had just finished.
You don’t have to paint art designs on a picture canvass to get this therapeutic feeling; I found it works with just painting the walls in your rooms. Let those walls be your canvass and try my therapeutic logic. From your friends at www.ustripeit.com.

U-Stripe It & Design Tool-Review and Giveaway
After buying a very run-down hundred-year-old house, my husband and I are quickly learning that our plans for the future aren’t about what to renovate, but are about what to renovate first. Half of the house is an unfinished addition and the other half was last updated in the late seventies, so there are very few areas that don’t need to go through major changes to turn our house into the palace that we dream of.
