Recently, I had the privilege of seeing a vision become reality at Fortress Youth Development Center. I'd long wanted to create a photo wall featuring the kids we minister to. Turned out, my sweet friend Cara shared the same vision. When Exec. Director Michael approached us about sprucing up the Big Room, we already had a plan in mind, and he loved it. "Go for it," he encouraged. So we did.
Weeks of planning: 5
Photos sorted through: 350
Frames purchased: 25
Minutes spent on the phone with Weezie while she worked some photo magic for me: 25
Cost of photo developing: $240
smallest photos: 8x10
largest photos: 24x36
Hours I spent installing the wall: 12
(plus 9 from Darren and 5 from Cara)
Times I almost wet myself 10 feet up a ladder when Cara made me laugh: 3
Times I almost fell off said ladder when I tripped on my gauchos: 2
Paint pens used for words: 2
Watching kids' faces as they spotted their mugs on The Wall: Worth every penny. Worth every minute.
