Play It Forward Bookmark for Dorcille – 2″ x 5.5″ Watercolor & Black Staedtler Fine Art Pen

Learn more about the “Play it Forward” game on my post here.  Dorcille and her husband own Belle Starr Marina, here on Lake Eufaula.   That’s where the fish comes from.  🙂  Dorcille misunderstood the post and is not able to play it forward, but she has been my friend for 20 years and I’m sending the bookmark anyway.  (Even though she tried to refuse it.)

I found out this morning that J.E. Lattimer over at Fictional Machines blog has nominated me for Blog of the Year Award!!  What an honor!  😀

Coretta Scott King – Pioneer of Civil Rights 

April 27, 1927 – January 30, 2006 – Coretta Scott was born in Heiberger, Alabama and raised on the farm of her parents, Bernice and Obadiah Scott, in Perry County, Alabama. She was exposed at an early age to the injustices of life in a segregated society. She walked five miles a day to attend the one-room Crossroad School in Marion, Alabama, while the white students rode buses to an all-white school closer by. Young Coretta excelled at her studies, particularly music, and was valedictorian of her graduating class at Lincoln High School. She graduated in 1945 and received a scholarship to Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio.  More here.

    Dorcille is lucky and should never refuse a wonderful hand-made gift from you. It will be worth millions some day. 🙂

    Ooh, this is my favorite of the bookmarks! They do look like fun. I love the fish and the stylized fins and waves. Congratulations on the award nomination! You certainly are one of the two most wonderfully consistent bloggers I know! (The other, if you are wondering, is http://elenacaravela.wordpress.com/) 🙂
