I know I think different than others do, and I am ok with this, I think it makes me more of an artist, or at least that is my hope! :) So long ago when we first learned we were going to Texas, I bought the red beach chair frame, and at the time didn't know for sure what i wanted in it. Then we got to the beach, and Kevin handed me a sea shell, and i thought oh that is it! So as Cori began saying 'I was on a mission" I wanted many shells, I looked high and low with the help of the girls for 8 shells, so I could do a "Team Cooper" pic with shells. The last night there, Sam and hannah stayed with me and we found even more... that is when i thought I want a bowl with sand and shells! I knew in my mind who, what, when, why and how, i was going to use these shells! It became the joke between Cori and I. I LOVE the outcome, and oh man did it take awhile to get there! Bleaching, cleaning, hot glue gun, drying, washing, rinsing, you name it we did it! While I am not very crafty I do love the frame we made, and the bowl as well... I love the entire table actually!

"Its so easy to compare ourselves and our families to some fictional expectation. Its much harder to listen to God's urgings and be content with how He wants us to be." Carla~
