My hero? My mother. Smiley My mother was diagnosed with cancer when I was in 5th grade. She passed away a year later when I was in 6th grade, I was 11 years old. I'm now a 14 year-old, going to be a freshman, and I look back on how strong she was, even when she was bedridden. She always managed to smile when I would talk to her in her bed.
She managed to eat a little something, even though her body was shutting down, and all through this she praised God.

It was extremely difficult for me to figure out what to do. Huh Then I thought, well when I grow up and start a family, my children will not get to see their wonderful Grandma, so I decided to make this little number. For now, I can use it and look back on all the good times we had. Grin

2  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / GARAGE SALE!! on: April 01, 2008 08:06:50 PM
Garage Sales and Estate Sales! Instead of going to the dollar store... GO TO A GARAGE/ESTATE sale!! I would suggest doing this challenge during the summer... when more sales take place!

Your Mission: Create something under 10.00.
                   It must be totally original.
                   It must be wild, fun, unexpected,
                   but still be able to use it!

 Hi Everyone!! This is my first project I've posted and my first challenge. Lots of firsts.
      I'm from Kansas City. Now, I was unsure of what to do this challenge on. I thought.. potholes  Grin.. stock houses... fountains... JAZZ! Since, music is a big part of my life ( I play piano and sing), I thought I would choose this. Kansas City is known for its JAZZ. My friend also wrote a journalism story about JAZZ!
   NOW I DON'T WANT TO PLAGARIZE!!! So, I got this information from wikipedia.
      Jazz
Main article: Kansas City Jazz

Memorial to Charlie Parker at the American Jazz Museum at 18th and Highland in Kansas CityKansas City Jazz in the 1930s marked the transition from big bands to the bebop influence of the 1940s. In the 1930s City Boss Tom Pendergast was at his height of his power and left Kansas City a wide open town in which night clubs were allowed to remain open from dusk to dawn. In this venue, an era of musical improvisation developed in which it was not uncommon for a single "song" to be performed all night by competing performers who passed through the city. The era ended in 1936 when producer John H. Hammond began signing Kansas City talent and transferring the acts to New York City.

The era of Kansas City influence is bracketed by the signing of Count Basie in 1929 to the advent of Kansas City native Charlie Parker in the 1940s. Pendergast pleaded guilty to income tax evasion in 1939 and the city soon began a crackdown of the clubs.

In the 1970s Kansas City attempted to resurrect the glory of the jazz era in a sanitized family friendly atmosphere. In the 1970s an effort to open jazz clubs in the River Quay area of City Market along the Missouri ended in a gangland war in which three of the new clubs were blown up in what ultimately resulted in the removal of Kansas City mob influence in the Las Vegas casinos that was partially depicted in the movie Casino (movie).

In 1981, 114 people died in the Hyatt Regency walkway collapse at a tea dance that was attempting to recreate the jazz era. In 1999 the American Jazz Museum opened in the 18th and Vine neighborhood.

Thanks!! I really hope you enjoy this! It's a little piano JEWELRY BOX!!! I spray painted it black, used white out for the keys, and sharpie for the flat and sharp notes! =)
