Blog ... Blog ... Blog or Blah ... Blah ... Blah

I am so far off my mark this year it is crazy. I usually keep this blog to beading and show stuff, but decided this year to expand and include part of my life. The last six weeks have been a wild ride in our home and writing and blogging about it, I believe, will keep me a little more sane!

To start I want to share a very true quote that I saw on a blog that I read religiously Pretty Things by Lori Anderson. It is truly how I feel right now.

Since December 26th when I had to go to the emergency room for which turned out to be a severe bacteria infection that left me with a perforated eardrum, violently ill like nobody's business and the fact that I still cannot hear out of my right ear. Then, the end of December my mother-in-law passes away then my father is diagnosed w/ leukemia. Our family has checked off all the bad boxes for 2011! The doctor is still working on my ear issue, there seems to be nerve damage from the infection and there is a 70/30 chance that I will get it back. Good news, my dad is cancer free after his bone marrow biopsy last week. Whew, I feel better all ready!

Now onto bead and fun stuff .... here is a seek peak and what I sent my bead soup partner Tanya Floyd of Glass Migrations:

She is a great lampwork artist and ironically she lives only about 30 minutes away from me. I am excited to receive her beads (we both are delivering a bit late), and hope to meet up soon. She even offered to show me how to make lampwork beads!

Until later .... Stacy

*Zen Hugs* It sounds like you have had it very rough and I'm sorry for it. I hope everything begins to be on the up and up. Have fun those delicious ingredients!

Pretty Things said...

Wow, I'm so sorry for what you're going through! But the beads look cool!

Courtney said...

Love the look of your Soup - don't love what you've been having to go through lately. But I also like your quote, and I've been working on something similar myself.

"How do you get self-esteem?"
"Do esteemable acts!"

Oh Laurel, may I use your quote to stamp on some metal?? Is it your original so you I make sure to give you the credit?


diane cook said... sorry for all the things that worked its way to you at the end of the year! I hope you are hearing better by now....big prayers for you!

Wow Stacy, I had no idea you were riding such a roller coaster this past couple of months. I wonder if maybe we might be on the same ride, having had my own share of chaotic events these past few months. I hope things are getting better.

On a happy note, guess what????? I posted something on my blog today. Your beads and focal you sent me are beautiful. The picture I took isn't the best but it will do for now.

The beads I made for your soup ingredients are supposed to be delivered today. I sent it priority and apologize for the delay. I'll have to explain that situation later. Feel free to add or take away some of the stuff I included in your package. It was difficult deciding what to include. Let me know when your beads get delivered. (:
