An Unexpected Blessing: A New Craft Room!


We were planning on staying in our apartment for a few more years until we could save for Ken's 2nd degree. And even that "plan" was unsure because of Lyme, living on one paycheck, and other factors. But a rental property came available. Our landlords are letting us rent for a price that we just couldn't pass up. We didn't see this coming at all. So grateful! This will enable us to save money for Ken's schooling and get out of apartment living as well. Although...the people upstairs have provided some of the most unique noises we've ever heard. It'll be so hard to say goodbye to the thumps and dog yelps. Not! 

Craft Room in Progress

Mom and I have always wanted a craft room where we could both work together. Here's the beginning of our workshop! 

We originally planned on painting the room a basic gray but didn't think it would look right with the carpet so we went with Sherwin William's Sensuous Gray. Such an awesome color! My 9th grade science teacher does painting on the side and is doing an awesome job with our three rooms!

Be sure to check out our Etsy shop in the coming months. With this new workshop we should be able to crank out more cards and gifts! 

Aren't these built ins awesome! 
Crafting here we come! So therapeutic.
The next and last paint job will be the master bedroom and bath. I asked for an accent wall. Hoping it'll turn out Pinterest-ly. :)



  1. I love the gray! So awesome to see how God always supplies all our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus! He's so creative, so original - seems He rarely uses the same method twice - so exciting! Thanks for sharing! But what's the second degree? Praying daily!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement! Ken is planning on getting an accounting degree. I'm guessing we know each other but I see Anonymous... Thanks for your prayers :)
