Tinkling Trinkets...

...ok, so not my finest hour in the whole "choose-a-grand-blogpost-title" malarkey but... I kind of like it ;O) Anyways... more THANK YOU's are going out to everyone who has left me lovely comments and sent me messages... I can tell you for nowt, I have had a couple of rough days and they have fair bouyed me up. Apologies also to anyone who has Tweeted me... I took the "tell-the-moby-someone-Tweeted" thing off my account so have only just realised that I have had Tweets too... I shall be rectifying that soon.


So... I alluded to my lounging about the other day but I wasn't lounging about doing nothing... oh no, I have been making some little trinkets... isn't it therapeautic... sitting with a beany-tray on your lap and putting beads onto headpins? Oh yes, I love doing that... so does AlfieCat, well, he doesn't love the putting the beads onto headpins thing... but he does rather like pouncing onto Mummy's lap, whilst said tray is still in situ and then haring off around the house with his chops full of my jewellry making gear...



The pics show a few of the things I have made this week... I will be selling these but haven't got chance to bung them onto Folksy at the moment so if you are interested, please drop me an email :O)) I really should try and find me a bust... the pics would be so much easier to take then!



So... an update is due... mmmm, I uttered the words "I wish I hadn't had this done" last night... when it got the stage that not a single wisp of pain relief was coming my way. And... tis still baaaad... but... there's light at the end of the tunnel because the sciatica is gone... hopefully for good... and the hip pain is sorted... so all is not lost.


I spent yesterday afternoon very indulgently... now, I make no secret of the fact that one of the main influences in my life has been The Beatles. So, a few weeks ago I spied a DVD on yonder t'internet called Living In A Material World, which is all about George Harrison. So, armed with chocolate (I was ordered to eat chocolate as a pain reliever by several sources ;O) That's my excuse and I is sticking to it) and my snuggley fleecy blanket, I laid down onto the sofa and started to watch... and then promptly spent the following 4 hours snivelling into my hanky. What an amazing film... very candid and it showed more the of the "real" George... his spiritualism and the things he loved and believed in. If you are a Beatles lover, then I can recommend this DVD... just make sure you have some Handy Andies with you when you watch it.


Right... I best get moving... I have two classes this weekend at The Stamp Attic... can't wait, all inky with Distress Stains tomorrow and then painty and inky with Christmas stash on Sunday... oh and... next weekend there are two more classes... and I have just heard there are a couple of spaces left on both... so, if you fancy coming to play, all the deets are HERE for booking! Thanks for looking... and thanks again for all your lovley comments this week! TTFN

Great jewellery - and they showed the George Harrison film over the 2 nights of last weekend on BBC2 so I did see it and it was GREAT.
Really should buy a DVD player so I can watch films etc now and again!
Hoping your pain stays away... how many cards you made (grins!)

Lovely trinkets. Chocolate really is a pain killer and mood lifter, I always take it instead of aspirins, so keep it up! Valerie

Great dangly art necklaces Hels. So sad you are still in pain, even if the leg pain has gone. Wish I lived near enough to do a class, boo. Take care hun and no over doing it this weekend. xxx

To have made those thoroughly beautiful necklaces whilst going through that awful pain makes you an absolute wonder. Now, as for wanting a bust - you can have both mine 'cos I'm sick of wearing bras or having a great big waist!!!!!lol

Fabulous jewellery Hels, The key is gorgeous. Sorry you are still suffering but at least the pain has subsided in a couple of places. If wishing could make it so you would definitely be pain free from all the good wishes coming your way.

Hugs
