9 Terrific Tuesday

OK, so you thought that yesterday was my BRAGGING day, right?  

Well, only partially right!  

I get to BRAG today even more!!!  

First off, let me brag about my daughter!  Last night was her end of the year Chess Club tournament.  Between the 2nd through 5th grades there were about 250 kids in the tournament.  My beautiful, talented, wonderful, smart young lady took 6th over all for the 4th and 5th grade level!!!

 Even her teachers and coaches were proud of her!

 She was moving so fast I barely got this photo!

 And here it is!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, I am very very very proud of my children, and here are some more things I am proud of.  First, this wonderful review from blessedelements - goinggreen.  She found me through a hop and things have 'blossomed' from there.  PLEASE go read her review, it is amazing!  She has caught all the 'little' things that I try to do.  From the detail in my work to the detail in my packaging.  It is so very wonderful to know that people who purchase my items actually notice my work!  It is about so much more than JUST beading!! 


This is the bracelet she purchased!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OK, so you think that is enough?  

NOPE!!  

Now I get to the feature that Artbeads has done on me.   The last set that I did as part of the blogger challenge has made it to their Fan Page!!!  I can't believe it!!  I am so excited!!  Then when I get over there to check it out I find out that many of the people want to have me write a tutorial - I guess that might be next on my list!  I am just amazed as how many have commented and viewed it!!!  YA HOOOOO!  Here is the set we are talking about!!   

If you would like to read the original blog post, you can view it here - wonderful-wednesday.

  1. First off kudos to your daughter. I use to play chess and I think it really develops problem solving skills.
    Thanks for listing my page and I've put myself on different hops so maybe more people will discover you. :)
    I love the dragon fly set. I'm crocheting a dragon fly shawl so I'll keep tabs on your dragonflies. :)
    Have a great Tuesday and always feel free to email me if I can help you in any way.

  9. Like you I agree that the blog hops work, the only thing that bugs me is that sometimes we don't have time to put several posts up for a day and I HATE having so many blog hop posts up. But I guess it just means we have to make the time.

    Following you and wanted to say thanks for stopping by and following us!
