Update... finally!

Just wanted all of you to know that because of some major back problems right now, I have not been able to sit at the computer to write for any length of time (10 to 15 minutes tops) and so have not been in any shape to write a final post for the family series!

I hope to be able to get back to it soon. Fortunately I have a good doctor who is determined that I will not suffer through this... but it does mean spending a fair amount of time going to Dr.'s appointments. I had seven shots in my back last week to stop it from going into spasms and that has helped. Unfortunately my sciatic nerve is giving me grief as well... so it's back to the Dr. again tomorrow for nerve conduction tests.

So, in the meantime... I will write some short posts and show you some of the stuff I have been working on... standing is much easier than sitting!

Here's a pair of funky earrings I made for an earring swap of "rusty or found objects" over at the Latest Trends. This is a one on one exchange and I can hardly wait to see the pair I receive in return. Being in swaps is just like getting a surprise birthday gift!

These earrings are made out of old metal golf cleats with a bead attached to the bottom. Fun, huh???

Well time's up for today! Hopefully I can post again next week... just in time for my birthday!

  2. Sharon,
    so sorry to hear about your back. Hope you are in good shape before long. I will say a prayer for you. The earings that you made are georgeous! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Sharon!
    THANK YOU so much for the nice compliment on my Leonardo da Vinci jewelry piece . . . it's actually bronze . . . there's more details on my blog where I bought it . . . Your blog is looking SUPER! I'm sorry to hear about your back . . . hopefully the doctors can heal it without surgery . . . back surgery takes a year to fully heal with lots and lots of restrictions . . . take care!!!!

  4. Take good care of yourself, and feel better real soon, Sharon.
