I made a bunch more of these…lots of yummy layers, and a *gasp* uncolored image. I’m thinking I might go back and color them, whatcha think? The rich color in the rest is overpowering, methinks….
I thought I’d bring you a little report on last night’s award ceremony. I wasn’t at all sure what to expect! It’s a little local group that puts on an event called I Celebrate You – and they honor people in town for being outstanding citizens, moms, dads, teachers, coaches, etc. My neighbor Scott nominated me.
It was definitely an event with a local flavor – lots of little technical glitches along the way but they gave it their all! The entertainment was outstanding, though I had to watch it from behind; they had the honorees sitting at the back of the stage. They had a fabulous Korean American Choir, with a soprano that was opera quality from what little I could hear. A dance trio did a beautiful performance to Go Light Your World. And the Chief Medical Officer for the Swedish Health System spoke and talked about how he got to where he was – growing up in rough neighborhoods, raised by hardworking immigrant parents. Pretty inspiring!
This is the little statue we each got. It’s got a genie bottle on top which is bizarre, but I choose to focus on the stars all over it, much cooler 🙂 And the big basket? I won that! For doing a social media task, can you believe it? They stopped the program for a moment and asked everyone to go FB or text someone they want to celebrate and just tell them what they mean to them….and then had a contest, whoever could like their page and comment on it first got a prize. Just call me ‘Fast Fingers Allnock.’ LOL!
So I hereby challenge YOU – go celebrate someone. Right NOW! Send them a text, drop some love on their Facebook wall, tweet them, whatever works. And leave me a comment to tell me who you honored (and it can’t be me!) and what you celebrate about them. And I’ll send a random winner a little something later this week – comment by tomorrow night, Monday the 21st. Bonus entry if you come back and tell me what they said in reply to you!
