I don't know about you but when I use to watch Extreme Home Makeover I would just cry and ask God "Please make me be a part of something like this". I wanted to use my art and decorating skills to bless others lives. Several years ago when they were in Alabama I even put a bug in their ear that I would be more than happy to help. I just sooooo love making a difference in how someone thinks or feels about their self. Well, needless to say my job with Extreme Home Makeover didn't happen but I recently thought "what is stopping me from at least doing what I CAN do". I can't build a new house but I can decorate a room! There is a super sweet family that I have gotten to know really well this year. They live in government housing and don't have a lot of money for extra things like room decor soooooo.... Me and my amazing momma decided to surprise the kids for Christmas with a room makeover!!! We met with their mom and had everything planned out for months. On Christmas Eve she woke up and got them out of the house for about 4 hours. We came in, did our thing, and waited for them to get home. When they got home we were waiting outside like we had some gifts for them. We went inside and opened the presents and when they walked into the back of the house near their rooms we heard screams and screams and more screams!!!! Ahhhhhh! They LOVED it! It was soooo super fun and their room looked soooo good! I don't think the pictures even did it justice.
And After!!!! WooHOO!
We even made them a gallery since the oldest girl is a P'zazz Art Student she has lots original art work!
This was so super fun! Their reaction was priceless!
Yay! Merry Christmas!

I am loving this new world of Mixed Media and it's even more fun to see the kids face light up when you show them new ways to make art!! Here we mod podged old book pages on the canvases. Then we added interesting letters with stencils and dots with rolling pin foam stamps. We also added some distressing ink to the background to give the look of aged paper. And then we painted our design! I love the puppy! Such fun!
