America Does Have Talent!

Last night the Polished Girlz polished for the Miami Valley Down Syndrome Association
Although we polished our Girlz monthly this day was extraordinarily special. You see this night was talent night, and the talent was overwhelming.
We polished up our Girlz before, during, and after the show but there were a few acts that literally stopped us in our tracts.
Miss {O} ~ we feel like she is one our very own and when she took to the stage to play the piano it literally brought tears to my eyes, the melodies that came from this remarkable young lady made me want to work harder, be better, and do more, and
 Miss {M}~ who we adore, visits us every month faithfully to get polished. To see her on that stage with no fear doing the hula hoop for the entire length of Sean Kingstons song Beautiful Girl makes us want to move faster, move more, and try harder.
These are only a couple of the extraordinary talents that took to the stage this night; spelling, dancing,cheering,and showing off their sports skills  proving to everyone how talented they are.
They were not talented children with Down Syndrome, they were simply talented, strong, fearless  remarkable, children that reminded us even though we are polishing them, having the honor of being in their presence is really polishing us.
We are very proud of you ladies and gentlemen and we absolutely cannot wait to see you next month.
The Miami Valley Down Syndrome Association will have their Annual Buddy walk in September The Polished Girlz will be there to support them and we hope to see you their as well.
With Love
The Polished Girlz

Polished Poetry

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
~Marianne Williamson

It does us well to  serve, it does others well for us to serve them.
~The Polished Girlz

Polished Partnerships

The Polished Girlz are so honored and thrilled to partner with the K12 Gallery for Young People! We will be utilizing of a section their new art space to hold in services and trainings for our youth volunteers and we could not be more proud.

The demand has grown by word-of-mouth and inquiries about K12 students’ downtown art displays, said Jerri Stanard, K12 founder and executive director.

The gallery serves more than 250 students in a variety of art programs, including summer art camps, field trips, birthday parties and after-school and Saturday classes. K12 also hosts art exhibits by local professional artists and students throughout the year and is the only continuous exhibition space for children’s artwork in the state. Young people participate in selecting, mounting, organizing and hanging art at the gallery. In addition, two K12 artists teach more than 350 students each week at six urban Catholic schools in Dayton.
The new space, its Teen Education and Joint Adult Studio, will allow it to expand its teen art classes and add a new adult art class. Two art teachers will be hired to lead the classes. The nonprofit currently has two full-time employees. A group of 15 to 20 artists also work with K12 on a contract basis, and the new addition will allow the organization to hire more artists, more often, Stanard said.
we thank you Ms Jerri for allowing Alanna and her young team not only to learn in your space but to create, explore and feel encouraged to use their imaginations. we are not just nail polishers for children with special needs, we are nail artist and what better way to bring out the artist in our girls than to be in a true artist space.
-How Polished is that!

Who would have thought!

Hi Girlz We found a really cool tip for making your nail polish last and we had to share it. It is something that we would have never thought of  and we saw it on Planet

You can make your nail polish last longer with vinegar. Simply soak your fingernails for one minute in ½ cup of warm water and two teaspoons of vinegar, either apple cider vinegar or white vinegar will do the trick. Wait for you nails to dry. Paint them as usual. This will remove oils often found on the nails. The paint will stick to the surface of the nails and not to the oils.

By reducing the amount of nail polish that you use, you will reduce the amount of trash that you produce. Reducing the amount of trash produced is good for the environment. It's also good for your pocketbook
Who would have thought? You Go Girlz!

The Creed of Babies with Down Syndrome

The Creed of Babies with Down Syndrome
Author unknown

My face might be different
But my feelings the same
I laugh and I cry
And I take pride in my gains
I was sent here among you
To teach you to love
As god in the heavens
Looks down from above
To him I'm no different
His love knows no bounds
It's those here among you
In cities and towns
That judge me by standards
That man has imparted
But this family I've chosen
Will help me get started
For I'm one of the children
So special and few
That came here to learn
The same lessons as you
That love is acceptance
It must come from the heart
We all have the same purpose
Though not the same start
The Lord gave me life
To live and embrace
And I'll do as you do
                                      But at my own pace.

You Go Girlz!
