Our Children's Church Stage Finally finished!

We've been slowly working on this stage project over a year. When you are just volunteers things can take a while and you have to compromise.

Meet Jack Lumber - Puppet for new unit

We are doing the "Giant" unit from High Voltage Kids.  The character for this unit is Jack Lumber and here he is! You can check out how I put him together here.

Anti-procrastination Week

It's anti-procrastination week! This week is spring break but there's no break for me! We have been working on some painting projects that needed finishing.
