I have been feeling pretty good since the walk/roll. lol I get nervous saying it though as 'PoOf' it may go away! I figured since the sunburn and the whole day at the walk I would be totally zonked and feeling tired etc. It was a lot for me, yet it seems to have been a good thing. I'm thinking my body NEEDED the sun. I do not 'do' the sun much anymore, and miss it so. The only issue I have been having is leg swelling, which gets to hurting. I know it is from sitting for so long in one position while making my jewelry and things. So, basically I can live with it, as it means I am creating again.
I added some new supplies to my shop here: http://mztracyr.etsy.com I tend to over-buy and since I do not like to make more than one of most things, I get over stock.
I got some new things added to my shop as well: http://afabulousflair.artfire.com I am very proud of my new things. It can be hard to make certain things for me. Where it may take someone an hour to make something, it will take me two. I drop things all the time, my hands shake, etc. But I will keep at it until it is finished. So, when you buy from me, you know it has been made with complete love and care. I am also anal...lol!! I keep hand sanitizer next to me and use it after each piece is made. Then once the piece is done, I wear surgical gloves to polish and clean it and take the pics of the item then place it in it's organza bag. My gloves are cool, they are blue!! lol
The only items that will be alike are a few of the awareness items. When it comes to jewelry, charms etc, I think it is cool knowing you truly do have a one-of-a-kind. I may use the same beads for things, but never the same design. So it is highly unlikely you will ever meet someone wearing the same thing! lol
So now I am off to create some more new things while I am feeling well. I never know from day to day how I will feel, so I am going to seize the good days!!
Blessings to all!!
