The place God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.

Redo

I've come to realize over the past many months, that I have a real passion for redoing small pieces of furniture. It's so relaxing and while there is nothing creative about the way my brain works, (my drawing repertoire consists of rainbows, daisy-looking-flowers and stick people), there's something therapeutic for me, about this hobby.

You'll recall the Freebie and Old School projects.

So, when I was offered my sister's and my childhood rockers - as well as one other special piece which will receive some TLC soon - while my parents were going through a gianormous storage unit, I jumped at another project...or two.

And it was fun!

And I, (after receiving tips from a friend) tried my hand at stripes.

And, while not perfect I am pleased with the outcome.
