My, my, my, what a week it has been! And you know, this week started out all sluggishly and stuff, what with the holiday and days off and really havin' trouble getting back into the swing of things. Some of my students really had a bit of a hard time; and I honestly can't blame them... Long weekends are nice. But, that all worked out in the end. And now, it is Saturday, September 11th, and we all have to remember the horrible events of 9 years ago. Not that we could forget. I mean, come on--the first major attack on US soil in how many years? Yeah, we're not gonna forget that. So, if you haven't yet, take a few minutes today and think back. What were you doing that day? Yeah, for my generation, this is like Kennedy's assassination or the moon-landing for our parents' generation--we all know where we were and exactly what we were doing when we heard the news. And we'll never forget.
Now, on to happier thoughts! And back to my week! So, this was the last week of Beads-n-Blessings Art with Heart Viewer's Choice contest, and I have awesome friends who helped me win that!!! And I have to say, I am in some gorgeous (!!!!) company! I mean look at those pieces!!! I want the Twister necklace (well, really, I'd rather know how to make the Twister necklace myself...) So hey, I have bragging rights now! And as a friend pointed out to me yesterday, I am now an Award-Winning Artist (yeah, I have trouble really taking that seriously... LOL! after all, I'm still working on considering myself an artist!)
And, I managed to complete 3 projects this week! The new phone case, the patchwork table, and another piece that I'm still waiting on it drying fully. I'll post pics and the story on that as soon as I get it all done.
And, I woke up today to learn that my little table has been featured on Creating the Hive! How cool is that!!!!! And people like it !
Okay, yeah, I'm having a "They like me! They really like me!" drama moment here...
And I think I'll just leave you with that. Have a great day!
