Could You Spare Your Coffee Money, Today?






I’m going to Thailand, y’all!
God has given me the incredible opportunity to go to Chiang Rai, Thailand with Real Impact Mission (RIM) this summer for the whole month of July! The trip is going to cost me about $4000. I’m getting my shots, packing my scrubs, and charging my camera, but mainly I am praying earnestly for the hearts of the precious girls that I will be living with. 

I’m going to be living in a home for girls, ages 12 and up, who were rescued from prostitution and are now receiving an education and a some seriously needed TLC. The other missionaries and I will be helping them learn conversational English, but most importantly, showing them that they are loved by the Father, regardless of the neglect they have felt.
Ready to jump on board? Three ways:

Pray. 
...for my team, our 21 hr. flight, health, effectiveness, wisdom, and obedient hearts to join the Lord in His work.
...for the people we encounter, that the Father would prepare their hearts (translators too!)

Give.
......It’s as easy as going to http://www.RealImpact.com and clicking “Donate”
...In the “Purpose” Box, just type “Elena Henson”, and use any credit/debit card to give financial support!

Buy a Tee. I have some sweet tees that you can purchase. 
...Drop $20 in the mail to me, or donate $20 on RealImpact.com
....Let me know what size you want, and I’ll send you this shirt
Thanks for the encouragement and prayers. I can’t wait to see what the Lord will do!

In His Love,

Elena Henson

So, have you ever walked into Dollar Tree, approached the shelves of ceramics, and wondered....who buys this stuff?!

It's me. I do.

The red and green bird were just too enticing to pass up, with their beady black eyes. Unattractive, they were, but I'm telling you- acrylic paint fixes everything.
I'm all about functional, but these are strictly decorative because I like birds and I LOVE yellow.

Oh yeah, p.s. yellow and gray together is my new addiction.

Paint.....On hand
Birds......$2.12

Total......$2.12

....Red Table, Blue Table

There was this gross-looking brown table in my garage.
Stripping, refinishing, all that kinda stuff makes me sleepy. If you're planning on sanding/distressing your craft, donnnnnnnnnn't worry about sanding before you paint. It just isnt worth it. So, with the help of guest crafters, @Joel Henson and @Patrick Garrett, I painted this table a color that I mixed myself. Then just sanded it down on the edges.

Table....On hand
Paint....On hand
Sand paper....$2

Total.........$2
DO THIS.
