BLOG – GIFT DAY 194 :: what to do when you’re blue?

13 Jul
Today, I continue my CARD CRUSADE.
My little way of saying thank you and spreading some abundance.Bur first, a little update on this dresser project.

Along with the HIDEOUS new couch that we own (newsflash: it is starting to grow on me) we picked up this thrift store find — an old dresser.

And, now, it looks like this:

This old piece was so fun to paint. With a coat of shiny blue paint this little gem looks bright and happy and new.

Justin helped me with this project, so we were able to complet it in one night. And, it was his idea to paint the handles silver — love it.

The details seem to POP now that the dresser is all in one color.  The final product is a great place to store books and paper and office supplies in my office. Plus, the color makes me happy!

   Even the dogs seem to like it.

I like it (even more!) for that fact that we are reusing an old piece of furniture and giving it a new home, a new life, a new use.

Now, back to the card crusade…

Yesterday my card was sent to Lindsey Neiwert. She is a friend from all the way back in junior high, and she has always been a bright, happy spot in my life.

All through high school, and college and then… life.

She once gave some advice I will never forget.

It was during the height of my crazy divorce. Her words were so wise, “Don’t do anything you will regret when it’s all over.”

I didn’t (even though I was pushed to edge many times). And, now, being on the other side, I thank her for that incredible guidance.

Here’s your hint for today…
Cards went out to TWO different addresses as a way to say thank you for helping us get across the country.

Can you guess who?

More tomorrow.

Lovemore {fearless}
