My Beads Will Be Out of This World!

I can't tell you how totally tickled I am that four of my beads were chosen to go up on the next U.S. Space Shuttle for the Beads of Courage Program.


There was a call for artists and I thought I had a chance to have one chosen because my beads are rather child friendly generally in design, so I sent in six choices, just in case.

Here are two of the ones that will be heading into space on May 14th at 2:19 pm EDT. You can bet that I'll be watching tv then.

Here's a link to the crew scheduled for this launch and a short description of what will be done.

But more importantly, I'm hoping that the beads will somehow inspire or bring happiness to the kids who are in the Beads of Courage program.
