If you've been wondering ...

I've been crazy busy lately, as every other member of our organization is right now. We are in high gears to bring forth our best year ever and commend the achievements of the participants with our Annual Creative Expressions Awards Program. Woo-Hoo!!

This is our red carpet event of the year! Celebrities shining that evening are the crazy-artistic, talented kids from first grade through sixth ... from the earthy art of sculpture to the lyrical whim of music composition ... the painters, writers, dancers, photographers and the like are all honored and lifted high in praise for their individual artistic passion!

I've spoken before of my adoration of this committee and the amazing women who make it shine with brilliance. I am so blessed to be part of it.

So, to do my part, I have been working on the handout program, which features our contributors who make this program possible with their generosity and support.

This project took the longest ... and thank Heaven that its done! It would have been simpler if my file from last year was not destroyed when my computer crashed and burned ... UGH! Thank the Dear Lord above for the maker of PrintShop! as each ad had to be designed from scratch. But, as our committee members all agree - this program seems to be in the hands of God, as He smooths our paths in broadening our horizons and shaping this amazing program, as well as leads such incredible women to our little group. Each new member adds that missing ingredient and breath of fresh air that rejuvenates our passion for this celebration of art. So - believe it or not ... the advertisements flowed like a magical puzzle that never needed tweaking. Can you believe it? Truly, I sat amazed when I realized that I was finished.

Last night, I embossed the golden seals for our Certificates this year, and now they await my calligraphy.

This year's theme is Kids Just Wanna Have Fun ... so very true, isn't it? My daughter submitted in the category of Sculpture her interpretation of this theme ... you know it brought a few tears to my eyes, for she designed a swing set with her and her brother swinging on it .... how endearing that he was her first thought. I will cherish this always as a reminder of their bond when they are teens and on each other's nerves!! (smile) We'll have to see how she places this year ... I thought that I had taken a photo of it before submission, but I cannot seem to find one. I'll post a pic from Awards Night.

Well - I'm off to pull out my ink and pens so that I can check another thing off my list! Hmmmm... I'm think I'm in the mood for ... yep, The Family Stone, again! You know me and my movies!! :)
