How to Build A Magical Door

I'll let you in on a little secret, I LOVE to build stuff. What kind of stuff? All kinds of stuff except for electrical...only weirdos enjoy electrical. While I've been building all sorts of things for a while, I've been messing things up for even longer. The first playhouse that I built looked awesome, but it fell over the first time Parker opened the door.

Here's the thing, creative expression (however you define it) is not necessarily dependent on skill level or specialized expertise. I believe that willingness is where all creation begins. Willingness to try. Willingness to fail. Willingness to be keep at it. For me, the LOVE that I have for building stuff is a really about the process of creating something, particularly something that makes someone else happy. 

So what does any of that have to do with learning to build a door? Far too often, people say, "I could never build something like that." That will only be true if your unwilling to try.  Some of the most amazing creations are the culmination of a myriad of beautiful mistakes. So grab your drill, borrow a saw, and pull that wood out of the dumpster and create something magical.

GoFundMe for Firefly Forest

Firefly Forest was brought to life by the power of kindness. Like a magical seed, a tiny red door fixed in the hollow of oak tree brought the forest to life. Visitors were drawn into the forest hoping to catch a glimpse of the mysterious creatures. It became a place of connection, a place of belonging, a place to dream, a place to find relief, and a place to find hope. 

I believe that as we share the very best of ourselves with others, we can make the world a better place. By using our individual talents and abilities, each one of us has the power to lift another and make a difference.
