Man, Oh Man! Maybe it was the fact that I took last week off from posting, but this month really flew by! Can you believe that it is already time to tally up our points for June and turn them in?
But first, I must tell you that my Stay-cation last week was only partially successful....but I'm actually OK with that. We completed one project and started another one, so working was kind of unavoidable most of the days. It was worth it, though, because this next project will take us here:
We will work in a residence like this, creating an art piece that will be 20 feet high and 10 feet wide. It is titled "A Life Well Lived" and will feature 45 individual panels of chocolate brown venetian plaster with embedded designs. Each panel will contain a word that is a character trait of the well-lived life, subtly layered in the plaster...each in a different language! Then, there will be quotes, written in Latin with the well-lived theme, that will run vertically up and down the panels...also done in plaster. So very cool!!
We've been given an incredible client who is excited about the piece, and we are already underway with a short deadline. It is a real honor to work for this very genuine man, who loves God and has a huge heart for making the world a better place.
And no matter how incredible the settings our work takes us to, it is always good to come home to our little place in the country. Whether a person is blessed with much or with little, EVERYONE needs a place to call "home." That's why I love this blog and my Company Girls so much! We share a common passion for our homes and families, and we don't mind earning a few points along the way!
Today's Small Thing is the two-step process many of you are already familiar with:
If you participated as little as ONCE, and did not keep track of points, you can be entered in the Random Drawing for a super Summer read:
Again, simply email me and let me know you want to be entered.
Everyone who participated, whether you kept track of points or not, is eligible for the Random Drawing. Sweet!
2. Leave a comment, letting us know what your favorite Small Thing was this month. It is so fun to see how different Small Things affected different people, and it encourages the girls who are just thinking about participating to JUMP IN in July!
POINTS: 30, good toward June's total
PS: I realized that I did not post a monthly verse for June. I will try and squeeze an extra one in next month!
