If you've been to my house....it's on the wall where all my craft cubes used to be. Guess you'll have to come over to see where they went! LOL! The old studio is now a "new" library.
A quiet place to sit and read. I remember when I was a teenager, my dad wanted a prayer room. If he were here, I'd tell him this is my prayer room as it will be my Bible study room. 674 hours of mp3 files and 6370 pages of lesson. All from Mount Bible Institute. It will take me the rest of my life to finish this study, but now, I have the perfect place to do it in.
And yes, Colleen designed and made the stained glass window. She's pretty amazing!
The bookcases are in and loaded....but we don't have the doors just yet. They will sort of match the wall.
We just have to drive down to Ikea and pick them up.
And then, I have to work at turning my classroom back into a dining room. Colleen says she's going home tomorrow. What??? She doesn't want to stay and "work" any more?? What's wrong with her??? LOL!!!
Best sister on earth!!!
