I got a chance to meet Antoinette Tuff at  the “Treasure You” event in Dallas. She saved students from a gunman who had entered the school. Now she is sitting with the First Lady at the State of the Union. She also has a book out–“Prepared for a Purpose”. She is a true woman of faith.

Designing Birthday Party

Women of a certain age have done birthdays all kinds of ways.  This birthday celebration was held at SiNaCa Studios.  We celebrated Danell’s birthday by making something out of glass.  We had the best time–I mean it, it was wonderful.  I am not a crafty person, but I can’t wait to see how my cheese tray comes out. Have fun looking at the pictures.  By the way, that’s the birthday girl with the champagne.
