My journal entry from that day is below. There weren't many words to describe what I was seeing so I used photos found online in the days that followed. I was 21 years old and in my 4th year at NIU.
A few weeks later on September 29th, the NIU Huskie Marching Band joined the University of Toledo Marching band at their stadium for a combined performance of "God Bless the USA" and "Stars and Stripes Forever". I still tear up when I remember the feeling of playing that piccolo soli. I barely got through it that day.

These ladies issued the challenge:
Sherry @ Young House Love | Katie* @ Bower Power | Emily @ Style By Emily Henderson | Lana @ Making a House A Home
*above graphics are Katie's design
I saw Sherry post this to her site and then Emily (HGTV Design Star winner and Secrets from a Stylist host) mentioned it on Twitter. Both are ladies whose style and craftiness I admire. I thought it was a brilliant idea. I just had to decided which of my pins to take on. I ended up making sewing kit in a jar because I had just bought a bunch of little spools of thread and need a place to keep them besides a sandwich baggie!
