A Marine in the making

My oldest son's pinning is set for September 11th. He is due to graduate September 19th. I am feeling like such a mom. He has made plans to visit friends up north on his leave. He has chosen infantry. He is looking forward to school because he will be learning how to kill. I just cried when I read that. I am proud and scared at the same time. He has had a chemical infection in both eyes. He has strains in his legs from overdoing it. I am grateful he hasn't given up or gotten in trouble. Such a growth experience for both of us.

Bratty Tuesday Treasury

Here is a treasury I put together for the Military Brats Team. I chose items that were serene and easy on the eyes. One team member said she felt the temperature drop 10 degrees when she saw this treasury. It is mighty hot in Texas.

I really enjoy putting treasuries together.

If you would like to visit this treasury, go to:

It is viewable until Thursday at 2:45 pm.

Etsy Military Brats Street Team 1st Birthday

Today, August 1st, is our Etsy Military Brats Street Team's 1st birthday. To celebrate this special day some of us have swapped birthday gifts. I received a nifty silver twisted ring with a purple Swarovski crystal in the middle of a flower. Way cool! My buddy chose a brown and turquoise bracelet from my shop. Says it is her favorite bracelet to wear. We have a new blog and flickr site to share our thoughts, pictures and artisticness. (Probably not a word, but I like it.)

We also have a forum thread, on Etsy, that everyone is welcome to visit. This weekend many of us are offering specials and discounts in our shops. Please be sure to visit:

Being a member of Etsy's Military Brats Street Team is very fulfilling. The friendships, kindness and unity are wonderful.

God bless.
