Excuses Excuses…..


As excuses go for not having any beads this week, I think this is a good one…on Sunday we took our bikes to West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz for a ride with my sister & her kids…a ton of fun was had by all, we then met my parents on the wharf for a late lunch & a visit to the art, wine & jazz festival that was on at the time…as we drove home in the evening I remember both of us remarking on how awesome this day has been…we got home & unloaded the bikes & put them in the garage, as I was bringing down the sectional door of the garage, I mistakenly for a split second, put my finger in between two of the sections as the door was coming down…

Hubby says my scream sounded like I was being killed & well the pain was that bad…I pulled the door back up with my left hand in that same second as it was crushing the tip of my middle finger on my right hand & pulled my finger out, the pain was amazing, I almost passed out from it…

This is the same hand by the way that I use to apply glass to the mandrel with & add details to beads with…The Doctor said I will be able to work again in about 10 days…dont even ask me how long it took to type this post…funny thing I never wear nail polish anymore since with lampworking there is not much use to it, by the time you wash the beads the polish is chipped off…but on Saturday I bought & painted my nails with this bluish purple color nail polish, the under side of my broken finger has this fat bruise that is the same color as the nail polish on the other side of it…I asked the DR. if we should remove the polish to see what it looked like under it…he laughed & said no reason, the nail will probably be the same color as your nail polish & it will fall off anyway so you can leave the polish if you want…

So there are no beads this week, sorry folks…the photo you see above is of a bead I am giving away this week from my private stash…last week’s winner anonymous from Reno please tell me who you are & your address so I can send you your yummy bead…enter to win this week’s bead by making a comment on this post…hope the photo of my crushed finger did not gross you out…it is in a finger tip splint thing now that is there to protect it from getting banged around, but there is not much they can do to fix it, just time, rest & meds…

You may not expect me to say it with a broken finger, but life is still good…thanks for stopping by…

peace
