Forget the "to do list"list getting shorter... I just remembered a few things.. meaning I found my to do list from 5 days ago.... LOL. It is almost identical to a year ago's list but instead  today I was on my way to Columbus, Ohio to judge their miniature State Fair competition and being happy!  My how one's life can change in a year... well, for that matter, it can change in a matter of a second.
I am back to getting ready for NAME's 40th convention to be held in Charlotte, North, Carolina for 7 days and returning to the work of my Youth Enrichment program.

Red Ruby Remembrance Gala

The Red Ruby Remembrance Gala cards and tickets are now being inserted as I have received the official attendee list. One hundred and twenty five NAME members will be celebrating 40 years of NAME on Wednesday, July 25. Trollies will transport the attendees to the Charlotte Trolley Museum where they will meet and spend time with Fred Miller's whose miniature replicas of the trollies and the Charlotte neighborhoods they served are a very special part of this museum. I serve as the hostess for the evening. Still a few details to take care of but what a wonderful benefit event this will be.
Shall we all wear something red?

NAME 2013 NAME Houseparty

 My normal day is not so normal any more- as many of you know I have added to my life the Youth Enrichment Services of Mid Kentucky- owner and executive director. Yes- I am returning to making a difference hopefully in the lives of young people- getting them ready and willing to to be educated and productive citizens. But in between packing boxes, unpacking boxes, developing forms, curriculum, life skills and more I am working on the N AME national convention which is just ahead of me and the 2013 A-3 Regional Houseparty to be held next year in Lexington, Ky.

 In between-travel days to Florence, KY, Cincinnati and,Columbus, Ohio; Indianapolis, Indiana, Carmel, Indiana, Lexington and Louisville , Kentucky; Charlotte, North Carolina, lots of travel time in the past two months and many emails, creative conversations and thinking, this circus train set was my submission for an HP13 workshop next May. I wanted an easy, affordable fun project to go along with our theme of "Playtime Memories". Once it is painted and aged- it is so adorable and VINTAGE looking! There are still more animals, a popcorn and clown car to be added.
I hope you like it!
