Have you ever wished you could just make a living working along side your best friend while being creative? Only all of the time. My husband and I have been married for almost twenty years. We have a set of twins a few months shy of turning eighteen. We blinked and in that moment our little babies grew up. We must have done a few things right because they are so independent I find myself talking more to the dogs now than ever before.
I have always been handy (thanks Dad) and maybe a touch artsy. Tommy not as artsy, but he more than makes up for it in brains. Over the years I have challenged him with quite a few "wouldn't it be nice if..." ideas. He hasn't failed yet. If the idea is way too out there, he thinks of something that will work and we make it happen.
This is one of those ideas. Wouldn't it be nice if we could spend more than a couple of days a month together just building and being creative? Sure, but we both have full time jobs that take quite a bit of our time and energy. Besides, who is going to buy our projects? We won't know until we try so this is me trying and my amazing husband is along for the ride. I have spent the last six months gathering all of the paperwork (who knew it was so much) and this is the final step. This shop. Even if we don't sell a single treasure, it was all worth it. We turned our garage into a workshop, made some really cool pieces (my desk being my favorite), and spent some really quality time together.
Faith is our biggest driver in life. God has given us too many blessings to count. May all who stumble upon our shop find a moment of joy and feel the love we have for all of you.
