Recovery and looking ahead

What a week! I completely got off track, being sick. Don't know if it was a stomach virus, or food poisoning, but luckily I had a doctor's appointment on Wednesday. Good news is that my blood work says everything is OK, except my gall bladder. So I'm having a CAT scan this coming week [update: it was an ultrasound!] Looks like I'm going to have to change my diet, which would be a good thing...

September is going to be a busy month. Have a OMA (Oklahoma Museum Association) conference in OKC starting the 22nd. I'm also taking a couple of days off early in the month. We’re planning a garage sale!

I need to look around the house for things we're not using. I never got into the soldering I was going to do, so we have all that equipment. And there’s lots of electrical wires and speakers DH has found. I know I have clothes I don’t wear, and all sorts of dishes and art pieces that are just sitting around, taking up space. Our house is kinda small...


On September 18th, I’ll be at the Annual Festival of the Arts, in Frederick. This will be my third year. My turquoise always sells well there. Just finished a new necklace two nights back:

"Liquid silver flowed

Off her neck and gathered speed

Over the small heishes."

Did you notice the photo? I did it myself, with the light box. Need to experiment, but looks like it 's working!

I have some more turquoise, so I might make some single strand necklaces. I could sell some of my beads at the garage sale but DH says I should keep them; they don’t take up a lot of room... which is true. And then I have the jewelry from the Museum Store.. which I can‘t sell there anymore....

There is a large - 10” long - bracelet that I made a few months back (lower left). Sold the other bracelet at the Museum, before I was “kicked“ out... Here’s a collage of turquoise that’s at Etsy - you can go there to see them:


So, I have a lot of catching up to do... did I say that before?

Hi! Looks like you've been busy, busy! Glad to see you got a lightbox. I bet you'll have a lot of fun experimenting good luck! Love the etsy item photos at the end- especially the lower right-hand side bracelet. I know the feeling about wanting to get rid of stuff- you end up with so many art supplies. But, it's probably better to hold onto those.

aren't those baby blue rounds so pretty! Yes, luckily, DH is so understanding! {:-D

Sure hope you get to feeling better and they find out what is going on!

The necklace is very pretty and your light box did a good job! Mine always makes the background pink or orange and I can't get it white again so I gave up on it.

Hope the CAT scan comes back with good results!

Love all the turquoise :)

glad you're better! hope that Ct scan generates good results. Looks like you're very busy. I agree that beads do NOT take up much space and are worth keeping.

Never get rid of the beads :)
