Good morning! I continue to get better each day. No pain, which is good news. Just tired of being in this cumbersome splint. In trying to find the silver lining, I am getting some good time reading around on the computer, I am getting wicked good at typing with one hand, and my family is not tired of me yet! You may not know that my mother in law passed away last Tuesday. My husband got the call when I was in surgery. Sally was such a wonderful, bright, dynamic woman. She will be missed greatly. Here is the most recent picture I have.
Such a wonderful woman! Thank you so much for everything.
Ok, I have got to remember to take pictures of my goodies before I open them. The problem is that I can't wait to see what has come......I get half way into them and remember! Crap! Oh well. Here are some of the goodies that I have gotten. I want to start with some fun components and a pendant from Miss Ficklemedia.
Beautiful pieces. The ovals have a blue patina on them. I can't wait to play. The next are some fun lookonglass charms and a great little bluebird bead from Cindy Gimbrone. I love, love the bluebird bead.
I also got some great beads from Bead for Life. So many opportunities with these bright and colorful beads. It also supports Ugandan Women. Very worthy cause. Please go out and get some to support these talented women.
So, I have ordered some wonderful beads and findings from some amazing artists on Etsy (thinking I may need an Etsy site), have gotten a few and keep forgetting to post pictures when I get them. Ok, I will take some pictures of the wonderful items and post them. Amazing things. I did get some time to create last night and made my daughter some hoop earrings - first foray - and they turned out pretty well. I was very happy with the end result. Hers are sterling and then I made a pair in gold fill.
Then I loosely wrapped some chalcedoney briolettes and dropped them on. What do you think?
