Beading Fit for a Queen

I have an art friend name, Marcy, she refers to herself as, "THE QUEEN". She is just one of those people when you meet her that you know you're going to just love her and want to be her best friend. We have shared blogging together and have created together a few time but OMG, not in a million years did I ever imagine that I was in the company of such greatness.
I was visiting her blog today and look at what I found. She created this wonderful thing. Of course it took her over two months but can you believe it. I would never have the patience to work on one project that long. I have suggested that she send photos into some of the bead magazine to have it published and then send it to a fancy gallery in New York.
Let's just say dear Queen, I am bowing at your creation.

There are days when a Mom just has to brag a little, especially when you have a kid that was born completely deaf. You set certain goals for him and well, you just can't set them high enough because he keeps Jumping over those goals so that he can reach even higher goals he has set for himself.

Yesterday was the JROTC 2011 Awards Ceremony at F's high school. He decided on his own last year to join this program. At this Awards Ceremony he was awarded 9 different ribbons to wear on his uniform for things like attendance, personal appearance, athletics, cadet challenges, good conduct, raider's team and academic achievements. But the most impressive part of the ceremony came at the end when several National Awards were handed out. F was the only freshman to receive a national award. He was awarded the Emry-Riddle award for outstanding performance in academics, leadership and cadets corps activities as a first year JROTC cadet.

This award came with a beautiful shiny metal to be worn on his uniform. I don't know who was more proud, me or him. His face was just glowing with pride. We are so proud of him and the man he is turning into.

The Queen's Mirror Swap

Remember that last month I was busy creating a hand mirror for one of my art swaps? I sent my mirror off to my partner and have now received my mirror back. Just take a look at it, isn't it just lovely? It was created by Sarah. She writes a wonderful blog called http://mysocalledjunkylife.blogspot.com/ . It is full of all types of vintage stuff, just up my alley.
I sure if she lived in the Atlanta area we would have blast creating together. Thanks Sarah creating such a treasure.
