      • Dear Tracy,
        I want this because I am still not at a place where I am making an income that supports me. A trickle here and a trickle there. Sure, everyone loves it thus the 8,400+ Likes on my Fan Page and emails and Comments etc. But you have some experience on the Business side that I haven’t heard from anyone before. When I read your articles, you have something different and I need something different than I have heard already to take this Art to the level that it creates an income for me. Please do not pass me by because I have been successful in my Art, meaning I have been able to learn Wire Work to the Advanced Level and because I have a large following because I need something to kick my Business into the Financial gear. And I think you have it.

        Sincerely and Thankfully,
        Ann Gray

        • Thank you for giving Ann Gray an opportunity to to win a Full Scholarship to F&TA’s Laying the Foundation Volume 1!

          Ann is dedicated to the art of jewelry design. Her designs are uniquely created with a passion for style and individuality. She is a person of integrity and honesty and provides a lifetime guarantee with each of her jewelry pieces. Over the holidays this past year she donated four pieces to charities; one of which was to help disabled children.

          I highly recommend Ann for this scholarship and would ask that you would award it to her to help her develop her jewelry business and establish her name as a jewelry artisan. In my opinion she is worthy to receive it.

          • Dear Tracy and Robin,
            I would like to add one more thing to my reason for wanting to win this scholarship. I usually do not tell people this bc it’s personal but I am disabled and I need to get my Business to a place where it earns a profit and supports me bc I refuse to depend on the government to take care of me! I am used to working hard and had a wonderful career before I became disabled. Now I believe I can still have a wonderful career from my bedroom and I still work hard, it is just from my bedroom! I will take every single word you say if I win this scholarship and put it to very good use in order to make my vision come true!!
            Thank you again for the opportunity!!!!

  2. I hope you will pick Ann Grey for this scholarship. She has such great talent and possibilities! With your help, she can become all she is capable of. She helps so many people all the time so it would be great for her to get back a little of what she gives. I have been designing jewelry and selling it for many years and I have been helping her too. Hope you will consider her! She is

  3. Oooh!! This is WONDERFULLY exciting! Here is my submission for the scholarship:

    Now, I also pinned, tweeted, facebooked things and added hash tags and swiped and tagged galore (hopefully in all the right places! I am a social butterfly, but haven’t quite figured out all of the ins and outs of the MEDIA part!).

    Thank you so much for this opportunity. As I listened to the call on Thursday, I got more and more excited about all that lies ahead!


      • You are sweetness and light, Miss Emma! I am happy to be in such rich company. It would be tough to choose! I expect that someone will be very blessed today with the choice. And I am sure that my path will be made apparent. Enjoy the day. Erin

  4. Here is my entry for the scholarship to Flourish & Thrive Academy’s Laying the Foundation: Volume 1. I’ve pinned your page several times, tweeted and shared on my FB page, as well as several creative groups I am in. I know there’s a lot of creative women out there deserving of this opportunity, but I hope you that you will consider me. I signed up for a 3 month pmt. plan, but I really cannot afford this on my own. I just want it so bad, that I am trusting God to provide, one way or another. Thank you again. I can’t wait to begin, no matter how it turns out. Bless you!!!

    • I just realized, in my efforts to keep my blog under 500 words (which was really hard) I may have left out an answer to one of your questions… I actually wrote that in at one point and then removed it to fit the requirements. God have mercy! I hope I still qualify! Thank you again… {Donna}

For someone to juggle work, family and now your new passion with the focus and determination that you have shown is inspiring. You should be so proud of what you have achieved already. I know I am.
