When we bought this house, we saw this amazing space that most Floridians don’t have. A basement! Thankfully, our basement was finished and we already had ideas of how to use it. Thank you to the previous owner who left the not one, but two t.v. mounts in the same room to automatically claim that space as the “man cave.” The other room was free and I went ahead and claimed it as an art space. The only problem was that I didn’t want a a desk from Target or Walmart because they are seriously made of plywood with a cheap plastic wood impostor. I have had my share of the Target cubies and desks, but I had all this wood lying around that needed to be used up.
I fully believe that God has given us gifts that reflect His glory. Since December, I have been slowly doing my art, but also taking in these moments. This past school year has brought so many changes. Jordan was in the last rotations from August through December, while also trying to apply to positions in Jacksonville and here in Atlanta. There were times of frustration because all we wanted was to settle down and stop the ever “transition period.”
Recently, I asked other creatives to view my site and constructively critique it as a customer. They were gracious enough to show me their sites and offer their opinions. I truly appreciate them taking the time to check it out. At the very bottom of my website, I added Scripture. I could’ve chosen my favorite quote about art and creativity. I could’ve left it blank. I could’ve chosen to put my own words onto the page. I could’ve, but didn’t. I chose a discreet way of sharing God’s word.
