Finished product! :D I really like how it turned out! I have this one listed on my Etsy Shop already and I can make them with any of my photography or with a custom photo/text from a customer! I hope these sell because I think its great to make something cute out of something that would otherwise be trash. I was able to get an ok deal on the chains so I can offer the entire necklace for 6.50! I am looking for other styles of bails...to see if I can get one that fits a little better! Or do you like the current one? :) Thanks for reading!

When Bush overturned Clintons abortion policy it was all over the news. Where are all those "reporters" when Obama is doing the same to Bush?
"WASHINGTON (AFP) – President Barack Obama overturned what he described as an "unwarranted" eight-year ban on US government funding for family-planning groups which carry out or facilitate abortions overseas."
Can someone tell me ....WHY in the world are we paying for it OVERSEAS? I wouldn't want to pay for it in my own country but especially not someone elses! And yes I said "I" wouldn't want to pay for it because whether you realize it or not these "government funded programs" are taking money right out of your pockets! This is the "cut back in spending" Obama promised? That makes no sense! Can anyone explain that to me?
"Anti-abortion groups were up in arms and vowed to fight the move.
"We were prepared for this and we will work very hard in Congress to see what we can do to get this overturned," Judie Brown, president of the American Life League, told AFP.
"I think it's a horrible tactic to take toward third world countries if the best we can do for them is provide organizations with the money needed to perform abortions on their children," she said.
Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, said lifting the gag rule was tantamount to "exporting a culture of death," and House Republican Whip Eric Cantor said he was "saddened by this decision and the lives that will be lost because of it." - www.rawstory.com
I am hopeful that Obama will wake up and realize that his plans and what he wants to do to this country will lead to nothing but a huge mess. But you won't hear about it on the news...so don't worry....they can't afford to let him look bad. They have another term to think about. And of course anything your kids read about him in school will be about how great he is/was as a president....think about it tho....WHO runs the school system? Do some research. Why do you think there is so much talk about revamping schools and changing curriculum? They do it all the time and all it has led to is the "dumbing down of our country" and the children are the ones that pay for it in the end. Parents need to get more involved in not only their kids schooling but also in politics! I know it sounds so hard and so time consuming and you might even get into a debate or two....GOOD! Get off your butt and do something about the way our country is behaving. I am sick of it....and you should be too!
They’re calling it “The Audacity of Dope”, while we think it’s all cutting a little too close to home for the comfort of those in the Kool-Aid Gang.
Sort of like Liza Minnelli coming out with her own line of vodka (Liquid Liza!).
Or Oprah marketing the most-calorie-packed, fattening marshmallows ever invented (Marsh-mo-prahs!).
Police in upstate New York have started seizing heroin stamped with the Obama brand, appealing to his followers who want to get high while toking on hopium (and not bothering to pick up their own litter, like they did in Washington on Wednesday).
We thought his followers would start demanding his name and face on our national currency (”Who was Alexander Hamilton anyway? It’s racist not to put Obama on the ten dollar bill! Benjamen Franklin was a lousy president — the hundred should be “The Obama”!”) — we never dreamed they’d stamp his brand on heroin.
Sure explains a lot, though.

These are all one of a kind glass pieces that I am going to make into either magnets or pendants! I am recycling magazines and making them into useable art! :D I'm still on the hunt for all the pieces to make them complete tho...like the bails and I need to decide if I can offer the cord for a necklace too...I don't want to have invested too much if they end up not selling well. I want to make some with my own photography as well. Thats how the idea started but I really liked the idea of finding the art in magazines and reusing them to make pretty things! :D More to come!
*another venting post! :D

Pastor Charlie Muller Selected As Finalist on "All The Ways You Care" Contest Hosted by CVS Pharmacy
Pastor Charlie highlighted for work in setting up city missions for children
ALBANY, NY (03/05/2008; 1259)(readMedia)-- Pastor Charlie Muller of Albany, NY was selected as a finalist on “All The Ways You Care” contest hosted by CVS Pharmacy and highlighted on Good Morning America. The ten finalists were selected out of thousands of entries. Each entry was awarded $16,000 dollars for their work in caring for others. Pastor Charlie was highlighted for his work in the inner-city, serving over 50,000 meals to children each year. His J.C. Club Children’s Mission has become a safe haven for inner-city children. You can read Pastor Charlie’s story at www.allthewaysyoucare.com.
In May of this year, Pastor Charlie will open a second center. This center will include clothing and other resources for inner-city children who live in at-risk areas of cities that are full of gang violence, drugs and poverty. This new center will also house a kid’s church – a church just for kids who live in these at risk-areas. It is always the children who suffer from poverty, hunger and dysfunctional families, but with two centers open, no child will have to go hungry in Albany, and this year many other needs of hurting children will be met.
Most people don’t realize that 30% of inner city children go to bed hungry. Every city has a mission for adults on drugs and alcohol, but what about the child? This year with two centers open and with the struggling economy, Pastor Charlie believes he will serve over 100,000 meals to inner-city children. Last year, during just two summer months, 47,000 meals were delivered to 13 city parks. This year, that number will almost double.
In 2006, Pastor Charlie traveled to Washington D.C. to receive the Jefferson Award for Community Service in upstate New York. His efforts in taking care of children has cultivated a passion to go to other cities and help other ministries start up missions for children that will allow them to receive the help they need. Churches from other cities have begun to seek out Pastor Charlie because they realize the great need to reach out to the victims of poverty, drugs and gang violence in their cities.
Pastor Charlie is Pastor of a 300 member church, Victory Church of Albany. Most of the members of Victory come from broken backgrounds, and the church looked upon as a hospital for those in need of healing in one way or another. This small church, located in the heart of Albany, has made a decision to invest in missions for children and hold outreaches throughout the city.
The church owns 38 pieces of property, including low income housing; two state-of-the-art children’s feeding centers with full commercial kitchens to make and serve all the meals; a 10,000 sq ft church; and lots of land that enables them to do outreach. One of the gems owned by the church is a 30,000 sq ft armory building.
Finances are always a challenge for a small ministry doing big things. But Pastor Charlie believes “if it is bigger than you, it is God, and God will supply all the needs”. Small churches CAN affect entire cities. Pastor Charlie has invested over a million dollars into serving hurting children in Albany, NY. He proves that as we meet the needs around us, God will help us in our mission. You can contact Pastor Charlie at (518) 434-6100 or (518)857-0726. To view the website, go to www.godinthecity.com.
