Having Fun, Hannah and the Hobby Lobby Challenge

So.  One of the things I LOVE to do is play.  And experiment.  And be creative.  And push the envelope a little.

I can't believe that I have waited this long to follow through with something I envisioned a LOOOONG time ago.  I seriously wish I had been more bold, less afraid of getting caught (and thrown out) and just did it.  I could have been the one to start the trend, gah!

You may have heard about the #hobbylobbychallenge started recently.  A photographer went to Hobby Lobby and shot around the store and posted, challenging people to shoot in ugly places and make them cool.  So... after deliberating about this (and daydreaming about it too if I'm honest) I convinced my girl to play along with me.  She hadn't quite conquered her worries of being watched by other shoppers so by the last set, she was done, lol!

Anyone daring enough to go hang out with me at Hobby Lobby and play a little bit?!?!  I'd LOVE to do this again and be able to really get the creative juices going!

The New Building ~ Pre-Asbestos Abatement

It's hard to believe all the things that must happen before you can do things like this.  Renovation and remodeling (especially as a business) comes with all kinds of red tape and rules and laws and permits and rules and stuff.  We are continually in a flux of trusting that God is moving this project along.  I think our prayer life will become much more deep and often ;)

I totally spaced bringing the "real" camera to grab these quick shots but the iphone did a pretty good job.  You'll get the idea at least, lol!

The real fun is going to be seeing this place after the abatement team is done.  I can't wait!

I LOVE what the dumpster says... Perfectly put and exactly what we'll need to keep on the forefront of our minds.

It feels a tad more breathable with all the counters gone.  Who am I kidding... no it doesn't!  O.o

So... colorful...

Um, yes.... it's hard to imagine what this will eventually be.  I'm so grateful I have a pretty good ability to imagine things, lol!

We left this on the counter... figured the asbestos team would want to handle this one.  I have no idea what these were used for but imagining anything with asbestos being put in my body through my mouth makes me want to....  :P

The New Building ~ Demo Day!

You may have only recently decided to follow the updates on our new building/mess/reno/fixer upper....  The beginning post includes the plans for the new space and they are A.W.E.S.O.M.E!  You'll want to check those out for sure.

Today's edition is going to show you a very powerful before, lol!  Warning: Not for the faint of heart!  We knew going into this project that we would be tested in our faith, patience and ability to persevere (and breathe).  Just going in and taking photos has been a combo of all of these for me, gah!

The plan is to do a weekly update called #fixerupperfriday.  I kinda missed last week due to prepping for a wedding and heading out of town to see my girl (I can't wait to show you what we did!).  So this post is going out a day early and the true #fixerupperfriday will be tomorrow.  That post will show an after of the clean out, before the asbestos crew comes in for abatement.  I can't WAIT to see it after they are done, yahoo!!!

Comment below, I'd love to hear your thoughts about our progress.

Be sure to subscribe (see webview if on mobile) if you want to follow along!  It's gonna be fun :D
