LifeWorks Home Improvement Challenge

by Caroline Cohoon | October 27, 2009

Through the LifeWorks Home Improvement Challenge (HIC), corporate and community teams partner with a decorator to design the space of a LifeWorks client. LifeWorks clients live in Supportive Housing a program offering subsidized housing to kids who need a "getting on your feet period." LifeWorks clients are former foster care children, former homeless youth and teen parents who may have never before received the help they need for a fresh start.

November Design Group of Austin, Texas contacted us about working with them to create a special canvas artwork piece to be featured in the living room of the makeover apartment. The girl living there was not able to bring her cat there with her, so we made a beautiful sepia-toned 30x30 gallery wrap canvas of her cat so she would always be there with her.

When you want to post something to Instagram, always take your photo with your phone's camera. Then open Instagram and choose that photo to process. Instagram will downgrade the quality of your photo so by taking the picture using your phone's camera you have the original higher resolution photo as a backup.
