9-11 Memorial Plaque…

This September marks the 10th anniversary of the attack our country sustained at the World Trade Center in 2001.  The events of that day are embedded in my mind and heart… I will never forget the horrific images or the sadness that I felt that day.  So many lives lost..so many Fathers, Mothers, children, firemen, police, brothers, sisters,  a loss of unimaginable proportions.  The bravery of so many heroes who gave their lives trying to save others…the lives of so many that were changed forever the day our country was attacked.

The plaque is a decoupage of images from 9-11…I placed a “clock” with the hands frozen on the time each tower was hit…the butterfly, made from polymer clay, a symbol of resurrection, has the number of lost souls that were taken from us that day…the polymer heart separated with a copper “break” represents our hearts that were broken that day, and the wings symbolize that we will soar, as a country, above this assault.

My hope is to donate this plaque to the 9-11 Memorial in Acton, Massachusetts.  Madeline “Amy” Sweeney, and Philip Rosenzweig, both residents of Acton, lost their lives that day.

Party favors…

This past Saturday we had our 9th annual Liberty Splash pool party.  We had 24 wonderful women, and three wacky dogs that shared their afternoon and evening with Jan and me.  I made magnets from polymer clay with the doggie faces of Chance, Wolfie, Chester, Lilly and Kinzee.  Chester and Lilly were at home but they got their “mugs” on magnets too!  For all the gals, I made the Liberty Goddess pendants from polymer clay with a glass pebble over their face.  We are so blessed to have such great friends and share food, fun and laughter with these incredible women.  Thanks gals for enriching our lives!

Summertime…

 I have been busy making goodies for our 9th annual Liberty Splash pool party…so, next week I will post pictures of the items I made for the party.  After Saturday, I need to get back to the 9-11 plaque I am making to donate to a 9-11 memorial site.  I kinda hit a “block” and had put it aside to clear my head and get some fresh finishing ideas.

I also am in the process of designing a steampunk robot for a dear friend’s grandson who will be finishing medical school next May…he was injured a few years ago when a city bus in Boston hit him while he was in the cross walk and he is now paralized…but, this did not stop him from becoming a doctor.
