a working vacation












~*Happy 4th of July to my USA lovelies*~
~*Happy Happy to my overseas friendship angels*~

My hubs has the rest of this week off. Tonight we will do the traditional BBQ with friends and 9pm fireworks :) Then...the rest of the week is being dedicated to website work. Sooo much to learn (surprisingly interesting;) and sooo much to do. My health has been unpredictably good and I feel like being sick is my job and I'm on vacation from it ;) My wonderful Dr.P saw me on Tuesday and he gave me a great big hug and got a little emotional with me. He sees me at my painful worst...a lot, so seeing me dressed and makeup ready, was delightful for him. I am blessed to have such a great doctor that I can call a friend.

Thank you all for the encouragement you have expressed to me about this venture of mine. I am determined and look forward to its presentation day. Light boxes are coming in the mail and a few other things to make the photos less exasperating and I am excited. Until then...I'll give you little peeks of my jewelry's expressions.

Have a fabulous safe and sound celebration xoxoxoxoxo

Ditto all of the other comments about your health.

It is a great thing when your doctor is your friend too. Mine always starts our infrequent sessions with a joke or two.

I anxiously await your web site.

Keep on truckin'

Hugs and kisses back to you and yours.

I'm hoping you go straight from vacation to retirement! Only from pain obviously - I'm looking forward to owning a Darlene's Signature necklace.

Dearest Darlene,

I am so enjoying your vacation! It gives me heart and hope, both for thee and me!

I really love the pictures of your art. As a starting and growing beader, I can see just how many hard yards go into your work, particularly your wire work.

I am so inspired, I'm going to drag out the beads and sit the kids down and have a good old session 8-)

Thank you so much for being you, ya beautiful girl!
