As many of you know I have been VERY VERY VERY busy!  Last week was the awards and graduation ceremony of my daughter Aye.  Talk about emotional!  Here she is - looking beautiful!



Since I am going to brag, which I just HAVE TO DO, here is the list of awards she won earned
(these are for the whole year).

A/B Honor Roll
A Conduct
Patrol Award and Trophy
Chess Medal
Reading Medal
FCAT pin (2 scores of 5 (almost perfect in Math and Science))

Then for this quarter she received
Perfect Attendance
A Honor Roll
A Conduct
Reading Award
Gifted High Level Award


So, do you think I should be proud???  

OH YA!!! OH YA!!! OH YA!!! 

And I wonder why I spoil her, with a kid that does this well, how could I not!

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

Now, on to the 'beaded' things I have been working on.  I have been working like crazy to get this wedding party set done for my childhood friends' daughter's wedding.  After having lost track for a few years we found each other through FaceBook and I have the honor of doing the her daughters' brides maids jewelry.  They will be wearing a Burgundy dress with black sash, here is what we came up with -




Aren't they beautiful?  I have to say, that they were a LOT of work!  Each necklace has over 180 hand turned Swarovski Crystals and each bracelet has more than 140!  Talk about 'labor intensive'!!  But, I loved every minute of it.  And NO, none of them are the exact same.  They were all done randomly and there is a slightly different bead count in each piece!  I just couldn't do them all the same!!

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

Then there is the necklace set that I made for the Artfire Beadweavers Guild.  If you remember back in March my Celtic Suncatcher won the popular vote (THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU) and I was able to choose the next theme, here is what I came up with:

Vintage China has always been something I love to look at.  Our work - beadweaving - was also VERY popular when this China was made.  The theme will be - VINTAGE CHINA.  It can be via the color scheme, the actual look and style reflecting China or even something that actually encompasses a piece of Vintage China.  Let's have fun and enjoy creating our designs!  ~KM

So here is what I designed - I hope you all like it, the voting is between the 14th and the 26th and I'll be asking you all to vote for me!!

In honor of my ABWG entry I want to feature this wonderful artist,  CatnipStudio.  Some of her work is simply amazing!  You really need to check out all her sites!  I just love this Cake Plate, but there are many more items I found that I liked too!  And talk about functional too!  Go visit her and let her know where you heard about her!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
WOW, you would think that would be enough... well....  See what happens when I don't blog for two days?!?!?  I also will be listing a couple more new items this week for you all to see, they are fun and playful!  With being around all the KIDS at school over the past couple of weeks I have been able to see the JOY that these kids see in life.  Most of them have little to no worries and are so carefree.....I wish I was that young again!

Then I listen to the news.  Between the HEAVY smoke outside and the 98+ degree temperature with a predicted 102+ degree with the heat index I think about my day, I'll be beading INSIDE again!!  What are your plans for today?  Is it HOT where you are?

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

And here is the hop that I am doing today -


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

For today's thought, try to remember the little moments, when years have gone by, it is those 'little things' that you will value the most!  ~KM
