Leslie, those top beads are beautiful but they're not mine. I'd hate to take credit for someone else's hard work. Besides, I owe you another batch right now.

Hopefully the artist will speak up when she/he sees these.

Everyone did some amazing work, thanks for sharing the pics!

Looking good!

I've seen kids take a very long time to select that one bead. They usually go through them carefully, narrowing down the choice to a select few, sometimes asking mom or dad for input, then pick out that special bead. If you come back months later they will tell you about how they earned each AoC bead. It'll change your outlook on life.

Default Be Wary of the Wildwood

Patty made a set using "Be Wary of the Wildwood." Great job, Patty!!!

Robert, that's so true! I've heard that sometimes the kiddos will even pick out the wonkies or fruglies because that particularly described that treatment or feeling at the time. I'm so thankful that we finally got the program at my hospital!!!

Terry Henry sent in a bunch of beads, many using glow glass. One really cool Saturn shattered in transit, but her other Saturn survived. Cool work Terry!

She knew that the Saturn probably can't go to a kiddo, but might ba able to be used for one of the other projects.
