Back in Action!

I am unstoppable! You can not keep me down... ladahdahdahdahdah.
I have been home from the hospital for a little bit now. It is nice to be home. I had them release me earlier than they wanted... but I have a RARE disease... so they want to poke at me, when I could be at home... taking the meds and getting well. So I went home, since they were just giving me meds I can take here anyhow. I have been doing well. My Takayasu's is being monitored by some great doctors and I am taking my steroids like a champ!
I have some projects to show you this week! My mom brought me some fab finds from New York while I was in the hospital... she wanted me to replicate the goods. So, I have some crafty beauties for you.
Thank you so much for all the well wishes etc... I SO appreciate it. 
All of your prayers and positivity really keep me upbeat about my prognosis.
And a special thank you to the amazing rock star who left the beads and more for me at the Funkie Munkie, Stephanie couldn't remember who... poor gal is so busy with the closing of the store!
In other news. My boy graduates Kindergarten this week!!!!!!!! 
Such a crazy Month it has been! 
We are having a celebratory BBQ at our House on Friday.... stop on by if you are local!

OH Lovelies. I tried! I pushed through and did a lot of crafting, but the pain proved to be too much. I held steady until my husband was back from his trip out of town... and then went in for a CT scan.
Turns out I have Takayasu's arteritis or something similar. 
So... I am hospitalized until further notice.
Keep me in your thoughts, if you think of me normally!

Handmade Jewelry for Tuesday.

A little while back, my friend Kel sent me the links to some jewelry online that was very pricey. She said, "Now, that could be made for less!" 
She is right. And she is a perfectionist who would make stunning jewelry, and when she does, I will link you to hers... because mine is amateur night!!!
I used what I had in my supply closet, so these are not necessarily the colors I would choose, all I purchased was fasteners, etc. 

I will post the link to the inspiration underneath the piece.
Inspired By this piece!

Monday, Monday.

Monday is here, and rainy as ever! I have been a bad bad blogger and crafter.... but I have a good excuse. I woke up last week, with a huge lump on the back of my neck. Ugh. My luck right. So, it is a lymph node or whatever. Lots of meds. Lots of rest. Lots of praying that it goes away, so that it isn't something serious. Boo.
I am feeling better. So, this week... I m dedicated to crafting.

A craft a day and back to my crazy company countdown. Those are my goals!

A Card for Monday!
