Even though I wasn't looking or an official "winner" I must say I was quite taken by Kristina's entry which said,
"Since moving to Fairbanks last year, I live in a dry cabin (ie - no water) with two friends because rent is so much cheaper. It's almost always an adventure. As for furniture, I found an awesome art table with tray, rolling stool and various lights for $50 on Craigslist. My bed is a twin air mattress on a bunk bed frame, propped up with cinder blocks from Home Depot. I have a rocking chair I found at the transfer station (fancy Alaskan term for dump), and my clothes are kept in one of those three-drawer rubbermaid units.High class livin' at its finest!"
And one more thing about the Backyard Fence: I have started a new category over there called Prayer Requests. If you'd like the rest of us to pray with you about something or if you want to see which Fence Friends needs prayer, that's the place to go! In fact, there's a new request there right now that I re-posted from the comments area.
Check it out often--write a request or leave an encouraging comment for someone else.
