WOYWW - Art comes in many forms...

I'm linking up with Julia over at Stamping Ground but my work desk this week isn't my desk.

I traveled to Mississippi and participated with a few day job colleagues to volunteer and renovate a house for one of our clients (I work with many non-profits).

This is the second year that I have participated and we returned to the same house that we worked on last year. (You can read about the first year here.) The few days that we were there were filled with long hours, hard work, and full hearts.

Making a house a home for a family brings me great joy.

This was my work desk...(after we put up new ceiling and interior walls) we installed new hardwood flooring.

These were some of the tools that used.

My day...volunteering #fromwhereistand

I did find time to sketch over coffee one morning. Napkins work great, by the way.

Please stop by Stamping Ground and take a peek at what everyone else has been working on this past week.

And, I'd like to encourage you, if given the opportunity - give back, there really isn't a better way to feed your soul than to be thanked by the family that you've helped. Pure bliss.

    What a wonderful project to participate in. It was neat to see you making the floor.

  5. Wonderful sketches, love the white on black. But working on a home for a family of need is AMAZING! Bless you.
