My Top Projects for 2017

Wow! Can’t believe 2017 is over. It feels like it goes by in a blink of an eye. There were so many great memories made, goals accomplished and ups and downs along the way. But, I must admit it was a fabulous year.  When I look back on all the furniture I painted, homes that were transformed, kids I made happy when they saw their room for the first time and clients who look in awe when I finished a job they commissioned me to do in their home, it makes all the work I did worth it.  

I’m looking forward to the new challenges for 2018 and the what the new year will bring.  I know God will guide and direct my life to for fill his purpose and the road he has designed for me.

After reflecting over the year, I want to share my top 10 Projects and Blog posts with you!
