Show and Tell Monday~I am glad to be back

Hi! I thought I would post two new necklaces I made recently. I will be posting them on my website very soon. I love working with these ceramic roses so much. I think the white one would be so pretty for a wedding.

I have been away for a bit due to a family emergency. Many of you know of my daughter April. She is 28 and has a sweet 3 year old Mikey. She has had some serious health problems that seem to defy diagnosis. Its very stressful. Last thursday at her job she had a seizure and to make a long story short that day ended up in two ambulance rides, 10 seizures and a two day stay in ICU. She has been release and is home and will go back to work tomorrow. However other than changing her medication we really didnt learn anything. Time will tell. The prayers and support of my dear friends has meant more than I can ever express. I cant thank you enough for your orders. I have been working on packaging them up with love and care and will get them out very soon.

The next day on friday I was home that evening with Mikey. I had taken my mirgrain medicine and was very tired. I was carrying a big box of cat litter into the bathroom, and I dont know what happened buy I tripped and fell. I hit my head really hard on the back of the toilet tank. My face has been a mess, I have the biggest black eye. Sore everywhere and I think I have whiplash. Aaagghh! Even a week later, it just gets worse looking. Now the fun begins driving Miss April. She isnt thrilled, but cant drive for now. So, I am now adding taxi to my list of professions. lol I am hoping to settle into a routine this week, and get back down to business. So, wish me luck and hopefully soon I will have alot of new things on my website. Have a pretty week..... gail

Hi Gail! You did have a rough week last week. Hopefully this week will bring you calm and peace and a good laugh now and then too. Laughter, after all is the best medicine.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Oh my you are right. I first saw the Twilight movie, and that kept me yearning for more. I bought the New Moon book yesterday, read it fervently and I'm almost through the end, can you believe it...and I think I'm going to the bookstore again today to hunt down Eclipse (3rd book). Can you tell I'm mad?!?!
LoL. I so look forward to seeing the 2nd movie..

Have a great week Gail!

Hi Gail!

Did you like the ending in "Breaking Dawn"? Obviously I haven't got the book yet and haven't read it yet, but I read through the reviews on Amazon and many said they were disappointed with the last installment, and wished they could re-write it. OMG, I'm like a drug addict hooked on this story. LoL. I'm gonna get the 3 books tonight.
