Wonderful things!

Good morning friends!

So many wonderful things are happening that I don't really know where to start!

First, we have a wonderful Workaway helper, Eamon, staying with us from New Zealand. He's painted all our radiators and they look fabulous! He's also a really great guy who's going to be traveling and helping other people around the US for another two months!

Also our workshops on Saturday have been really taking off! We're meeting lots of great people who enjoy learning and making things!

Did you know we're doing FREE arts and crafts workshops on April 22 to celebrate Earth Day? You should stop by and take part. It's going to be really fun!

Every single day here wonderful things are happening and it's amazing to see what progress we're accomplishing with the help of some great people!

You're invited to come over and say hello, see the progress, take a workshop or just have a look around at this beautiful building that is transforming in front of our eyes!

Hope you have a beautiful day filled with wonderful things!
