Doing projects together is a perfect way to learn how to communicate with each other and learn from each other.
Do Projects Together!
I’ve always heard that 2 heads are better than 1.
But is it really true?
I think so.
Hubby and I have been partners on many projects. We use to refurbish homes and had a painting business together. We learned each other’s ways and worked really well together.
When I first started working with him, I had no clue about working on homes at all. He would give me pretty easy jobs to do at first and was very good at explaining everything that needed to be done. I was the worst at hammering nails and still am, but always seemed to get the job done. Then one day he said,
“I need you to cut a hole in this wall.” Huh??
He wanted me to cut a hole in the wall where new plumbing was going for a washer and dryer? He explained exactly what needed to be done and before I knew it, I had the perfect hole cut out just the size he asked for and I was quite proud of myself! As time passed by I was putting in door knobs, electrical outlets, sinks and paint like a pro.
Now we pretty much just do small projects around the house. Such as craft projects. I found out very early on he does not like to decoupage. He thought that was a bit too YaYa for him.
The latest craft task we worked on together was to carve out a heart with our initials on it for Valentines Day decor. Now that was right up his alley. Working with wood and a knife. Ar..ar…ar!
He did the carving and I used my burn tool and a black marker to make the heart and letters stand out just a bit more. I love it!!
Enjoy working on a project together. You never know what two people can make.
What projects do you love doing with your loved one?
Do small things with great love!
Enjoy the love,
