French beadwork 3 corsages and 2 boutonnières homecoming

homecoming corasages and boutanierrs
I have made a few corsages and boutonnières for tonights homecoming dance.  My daughters are going stag.  So the other three you see are for some good friends of theirs.  One is for a first date that is the green set.  The other is for a good friend who doesn't have a date also.  So we thought we would do something for these three friends to make it more special for them.  Since the theme of the dance is " Night in Paris"  We figured French beaded wire flowers was perfect as a special keep sake for the dance for everyone including my kids.

My daughter wants your help

I do not like to put the names of minors on the internet but my daughter feels strongly about this contest so here I go.

This is my daughter China Khoral she is in a song writing contest. She sang, composed the music and wrote the lyrics for the song for this. If you like the song please go put a like on her song. This is to raise money for cancer research th etop 20 popular vote tgo to the next level where 12 are picked to be in the album to help raise money for cancer reasearch. Her grandmother died at the end of my daughters 7th grade year from pancreatic cancer.  Not long after ward so did her great uncle  from testicular cancer and her  great grandfather the previous year from cancer of the blood all from different types of cancer. We had lived with the grandmother at one point in my daughters' life and she was more like a mother to my children than a grandmother. Life has trials and they make us strong I consider my children to be some of the strongest people I have known. They face life head on and are resilient.   This song is about the trials my daughter went through during the time of her grandmother passing and her other relatives which was during a time she was being bullied at school. She is an amazing young woman. I hope her song gets picked to be one of 12 on the album so she can help others through her music and be able to donate her energies to cancer research by the money the album will raise. Thank you for your time with this. 
 p.s. the image here is of my daughter she is looking out over 1/4 of Arizona state from the highest point in the state while on her Concert choir tour this last summer. Reach hi and keep reaching

This is what she has written about her own song.

My name is China Khoral and I am almost seventeen. The reason I decided that I wanted to send in my song to Songs for Life was because although I don’t have cancer, I have an inherited bleeding disorder that affects my every day life. Consequently, some things are difficult for me to do and sometimes going through a day can be a struggle. As a result, I can relate to cancer patients in that their everyday life is not an easy stroll, but more of a steep hike that they take one step at a time. Though I have this quirk I do not let it stop me. I dance, sing, act, write, play sports, paint, draw, and lead a technical theater crew. I enjoy both sides of the stage and have come to live by this motto that “The harder I work the more luck I have.”
Girl I Wanna Be” is about when I was being bullied through the end of elementary and throughout junior high. I was judged because of my personality, the way I dressed, and the fact that I liked to do what the boys did. Towards the end of my seventh grade year I was physically bullied by a boy twice my size. I was injured in such a way that my feet were two inches out of alignment. This was what broke me and taught me to forget what other thought and just be me.
A year ago I started taking composing lessons and made the choice to tell my story through music. I hope that through this song others may be able to stand, let their flame burn, and be the person they wanna be. This is my song for life.

white homecoming dress

right sidecorsetSorry I forgot to take before pictures.  This was a dress my middle daughter got the summer of 2013.  It was donated to a church close swap.  What is a clothes swap you ask.  It is where you take your gently used clothes that you have out grown and trade with other people for sizes you fit into anything left over is donated to local thrift stores.  This dress was there ( actually is is a skirt and corset).  I took the embellishments off of it which had been six red roses and a few (about 30) red seed beads.  Thus leaving the dress almost totally white except for the red tie on the back.  I then repaired the damage to the dress and started to sew on white roses with green accent leaves and silver roses I also sewed on white sequin snowflakes. So the dress cost nothing except thread, flowers and sequins. It still retains the original red tie on the back may change that to white not sure as it does not bother me.

on a side note we also just used this dress in the play the wizard of Oz as the snow that fell on the poppies.  We had a ballerina dance across the stage with white disco lights going to represent snow.

The play is done

The play is done and we all survived.
I had 2/3 of my children ill during the play.  All three of my daughters were in this play it was fun to be with them and watch them learn and grow. One had to learn to tap dance and do this while being tech crew chief and an actor in the play a dancer and a singer.  Another was singing and acting  all while going in and out of the hospital.  The third had the easiest time which was not easy and just had a stomach bug. It was not the easiest thing for us this go round as I said above I had a few ill children.  But as always we did enjoy it.  I would say lots of miracles happen during this play too many to go into.  The main tin man got sick and had to be replaced.  We had no understudy.  The young man who stepped in had two days to learn all the lines , songs, and marks and all and he did it God is amazing in what he can do to help us.  Another student rolled maybe tore a ligament and still went on.  I am not in the photo as I am  the one taking it so do not look for me in it I am not there.  There was almost not an actor on stage that I did not either make, loan or repair a costume or several for.  I did not do much with most of the munkins as we borrowed those.  The only munkins I did costuming for was my own daughter and the yellow brick road I did modifications on yes ours was a human not painted on the ground.  She would dance and the foursome would follow her thus follow the yellow brick road.  My daughter (  7th grade) was one tall munkin at 5 feet 5 inches much taller than Dorthy who was a (10 grader). My children I believe are born in reverse height order the oldest is the shortest and the youngest will be the tallest when they are all done growing  Thanks to all who came and supported the students made it all the more fun.
