In mid-August, a project was presented to our small group at church. 
Lifeworks is a non-profit organization in Austin that helps troubled youth.  It teaches them, trains them and helps them get a fresh start in life.  They have this Home Improvement Challenge where clients apartments are cleared out and completely redone.  A mini extreme home makeover, if you will. 
Our small group jumped on board quickly wanting to help with this.  Our team needed designers to plan out the entire project. Being a designer was alot out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to try it. Luckily, my friend Amy was willing to do this too. We worked on the design together, but lots of people helped out- with their time, or donations. 
 Our client was Johnny Vega, a  19 year old, getting his start in life.
Last Friday, we spent the entire day painting, cleaning, and setting up Johnny's apartment. It was an amazing time spent with friends, working together to complete this project. It took alot of people to make this work.  Johnny was so happy and seemed to love the look of his apartment and all of his new things.  He kept hugging us and thanking us.  This was an incredible experience and I am so happy to have been a part of it. Here are some pics from the day!
