Thinking about the creative process of our business is a little more complicated than most people would think. Ideas don’t just come to us at any second. I (Cori) literally don’t have one creative bone in my body. I basically failed art class in school because I had a hard time comprehending how to do really anything.
As Sam began this business, I told him I would help him paint and stain things but that was about it. No tools, no coming up with designs, nothing on that side of things. For the first few months that’s all I really did. As time passed, I started helping him out with more challenging things, and eventually he showed me how to use all of the major power tools.
I started to to see a vision of where this could go. This was bigger than I thought. We had no intention of doing much with this but fully trusted in the lord to lead us.
We literally felt like two blind people walking in a completely unknown area. We saw quickly that nothing that we created was from our own doing but Gods doing. So we just started to pray for ideas on new designs, creativity and clients to come our way fully dependent that he would show up and provide. And he did.
We have started to see that when we simply ask, he ALWAYS provides. It isn’t as complicated as we make it to be. He isn’t this distant god off in the clouds, he is attentive to every single thing you need and ask for.
