Deborah “Annie” Ruge
I have always been creative, even artistic, it is in my DNA. My passion though, belongs to creating better personal spaces in our lives and homes, beginning with taking the ordinary and transforming it into the extraordinary. If you have followed my blog long enough you’ll see my everyday creativity in my art, spiritual life, furniture, decorating, and inspiration in crafts and projects. I hope you follow this journey with me to discover new things, new ideas, and hopefully help you be inspired to re-create the environment in your home to make it a comfortable, happy place.
Why theOnething1721? First of all my deepest passion is for the Body of Christ and seeing the Bride take her place beside the One she truly loves – Jesus! 1721 is for John 17: 21 where we would be as one as the Father and Jesus are, it true unity!
Two distinct attributes could define my life: passion and determination. Passion for the joys in my life and determination to pursue those joys with all my heart.
I use many different mediums, such as watercolors, acrylics, and ink. I want to learn everything so a purposeful artistic process forms with each idea creating a style that defines the season of my life.
I am passionately in love with Jesus, His daily workings, Presence, and interaction strengthen and inspire my life. I believe for the impossible and the change in others around me and the world.
