Chewing Off a bit of time to BLOG

Good Lord, it has been weeks since I've found the time to blog, mia culpa! I have been diligently working .. here's a picture of my overloaded desk to prove it. I have developed a new bracelet design, much lighter to wear but with the same glam power as my glass bead gallery ones. I've utilized many of my great collection of vintage plastic beads from the 40's and 50's, which beat out new glass beads by a mile, but this has taken hours of sorting. Since I am in the process of developing my ETSY site, and plan on introducing it sometime in July, my production of "critical mass" is important. But that isn't the only pot boiling on my personal stove.

My sister has gone on an auction frenzy, and I am uploading as many as 150 ads a week selling vintage collectibles for her on Ebay. I barely finish one group as she backs up her van and begins unloading another load of treasures (trash?) to sort, shoot, and build. This next week alone I have 250 to build and upload so I figure I'll just sleep on the pool table at her house between typing jags.

The news on Lewis; he had his surgery on Tuesday. It went well and he was home Thursday. We will not know it all the cancer was rooted out until next week, but the surgeon was very positive. My family has really hung together on this one, as we've spent a lot of time at Martha's "pitch hitting" with the kids (cooking, cleaning, etc) Upside: Great Food. Downside: TOO MUCH great food. :-/ But I am so grateful for the positive outcome for Lewis, and again thank all those who kept him in their thoughts.

And of course in all this frenzied activity I missed calling you on your birthday Rogie. I was determined to, and yet I probably did something crazy like sleep or something that day. I do hope you had a great one my friend, good thing I sent those cookies early this year!

With this said I am off to greet another rainy day in Illinois. I have more to write about later as I have been saving up...I mean there are puppies to discuss, as well as politics, books read, and......too much for one blog entry. :)
