Quick Note...

I haven't posted or made beads for a few days now - on Thursday afternoon the trainer at my daughter's school called. She got hit in the head with a softball and they thought she was showing signs of a concussion. They told me to watch her carefully. I thought with her symptoms I should take her to the doc - so on Friday that's what I did and she does have a concussion. Watch her for other signs, but no exercise for a week...she doesn't like that at all!!! But she'll be ok. Today, I think I'll finally get around to some enamel beads and more head pins, and maybe some lampwork beads as well. Depends on how I feel later - I am very tired. I myself am going through a little medical issue (girl stuff) but need to have surgery coming up soon. I'm ok, but it's on my mind a lot and it also makes me pretty tired! Hopefully we'll all be back to normal here in April. I'll post later when I have some enamel beads up!

I hope you and your daughter both get well quickly. Enameling is a great cure-all. :)

I hope that everything gets back to normal for you soon, Sue! I know what it's like to deal with issues (girl or otherwise) that just seem to drag you down...I'm hoping that we get some sort of answer for some of my issues this week...

I hope you survive the week of a daughter anxious to get back out there!

Hugs from down here in AL.

Plus, I got my April Bead Trends yesterday and LOVE your pieces! That set of glass is wonderful! Plus, I sold the set of earrings I made with the chardonnay beads. Good stuff!!

Take care. :)

Hey Sue,

Sending you that squeezy healing type of sisterly love that all ladies need once in a while!

Hope your daughter is on the mend and that you get to relax a bit and take care of yourself too! I recommend a nice soaker bath, complete with bath salts, candles, and some Harry Connick Jr. on the stereo!

P.S. If you hear a tink on the window... it's the healing fairy. I'm sending her your way to look out for you guys! ;)

Thank you for sharing,

the best to both you and your daughter... her injury alone - the vigilance and worry and being responsible makes a parent weak in the knees, to the bone exhausted... take care of both of you - maybe you can watch some movies together (that's my 18 yr old daughter's fav way to pass the time!!)

Good wishes to both you and your daughter. :-)

Hi Sue, so sorry to hear about your daughter! Thank goodness she is ok!! How scarey.
Oh, I have had my share of the medical issues, nothing serious, but still, very worrisome at the same time. Hope your daughter is back on the field soon and you on your torch.

I'm praying for a speedy recovery and good health for you both! Keep us posted with your progress.

Hope your daughter is feeling better, its always a little scary when your kids are hurt. Hope you are dealing with your "girl stuff," isn't it great being a girl.
I hope the kiddo is doing better now. Concussions can be scary. Take it easy and take care of yourself. Everything else can wait a bit. Hugs!

Happy Accident!

Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases!

This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below.

These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantastic, but …

October Art Elements Theme Challenge - Petroglyphs

I'm afraid I just didn't have the time to participate in last months theme, which was faerie. This month the theme is petroglyphs hosted by Karen Totten. Since I'm spending 10 days in Iceland this month, I really didn't get to spend any extended amount of time on the theme, but I did find these AWESOME petroglyph earring charms by Jill of Foxpaws on etsy! I highly recommend checking out her shop - every package you get is a gift in itself - TRUST ME!

SO here are the earrings I made!

I hope you also visit all the other participants! I'm sure there will be some awesome creations!
