  • CNN Picture of my military plaques

    I know I am really stretching with this one, but I was pretty excited nonetheless.
    This summer I completed the set of military emblem plaques for the Fallen Heroes Family Center at Ft Carson. They recently called me for some new items for the Memorial Walk so I started researching what they have done up to this point with their programs and found this article on CNN with a picture. Above the entry are the plaques I made for them.
    I hope to make it out next summer to visit the site and meet the staff. If you get a chance, I would highly recommend visiting and meeting these amazing people. I have heard a few stories about why they are working there and it is very humbling.
    The link to the article is Survivors visit Fort Carson support center - CNN iReport.

      Used a 788 for many years. It now resides with a crafty family friend.

      I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
