Since my son was king, my husband and I got to go to the beginning of the dance to see when they announce the king and queen and watch the first dance. More wonderful memories to tuck deep into my heart, like tiny treaures, which I can relive in my mind over and over. As I watched him dance with the "Queen" tears come to my eyes. Where have the years flown by? Much to quickly, it's over in a bink. Being a parent can have many challenges. This weekend there was only happiness . I saw the young boy who was my son grow into a wonderful young man. Yes, God did bless me with the PERFECT weekend!
Making the decision to have a child is momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

I just got the official letter from the editor of the new "Apronology" magazine... My apron submission has been chosen to be featured in the first addition of the new Apronology Magazine which hits news stand on February 1, 2009! The magazine will feature photos of my apron and an article which I must submit in the next two weeks. If you want just a clue about my apron think "Marilyn Monroe and Glam" and scroll down to my post on September 2oth. I encourage each one of you who enjoy using your talents to take a risk when given the chance and someday submit a "Creation from the Heart". You never know who may send you a letter....

The wide ribbon had a polka dot print. I got the ribbon in the $1.00 bin at Michaels Crafts. Oh, how I love to find the perfect ribbon in that bin. I could spend an hour digging through the large bin for the perfect selection. The ribbon was glued down with a button and rhinestone adding a bit more Bling Bling.

I created little beaded tassels to add to the end of the neck ties and finished it off with the same ribbon flowers that were on the front of the bodice. Every fancy evening dress needs a big bow, so why not finish this apron off in the same way?
I made an accessory to be worn with the apron. Here's just a small detail of the silk yo-yo with an old pearl button that I used to give it a bit more glam....
I am so glad that Dawn suggested that I send in an apron. It was totally out of my comfort range. Isn't that how most of us are when we first try out something new? Once I got into my workroom and started this project I loved doing it, and my confidence began to grow. When I handed the package to the postman, I was proud of myself for taking the risk. Through this experience I learned that if we are unwilling to take a rick and are always worried about failure, we will never grow. I am hopeful that the editors of Apronology like the "Creation From My Heart".
Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
