About Arica...



The opposite of wasting my lufe is living by a single God exalting and soul satisfying passion...it's not Squeaky Hinges (wink)...this single passion is Jesus Christ and the cross.  God has given me certain talents and I find joy and delight in glorifying Him by using those talents! 

I have a busy home with three wonderful children, my husband, and our little puppy, however, God always comes first!  This is the life I want to live and the legacy I want to leave...because of this, my family is truly blessed!

Between football, wrestling, soccer, and pre-school, life is fun and chaotic to say the least! When I can, I try to find a little bit of me in the mix! That is what this website is about. My own space!!! (wink).

About Squaeky Hinges...

In life, we all need a little time for ourselves.  Squeaky Hinges began as a simple hobby allowing for some "Me Time," but it began to grow as I learned more and more about painting.  My love for taking an old, tattered, piece of furniture and giving it a renewed life became a passion!When I begin to work on an old, tattered piece of furniture, I reflect on 2 Corinthians 5:17 where it says, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.  The old has passed away;behold, the new has come."  I, too, was an old, tattered, piece of work!  Through Christ, I have been renewed!  I give Him the glory for the new creation He made in me, and for the talent He has given me in replicating that same vision in my work. 

My beautiful friend, Courtney, gave my hobby its name: Squeaky Hinges.  Courtney is a special friend...she has been there to pick me up when I fall, to tell me the truth; even when I want her to lie (wink), and she is always there when I call!!  My many close friends have supported me and my husband is always willing to turn a screw driver...Thank You!!!!
