a coupla new treats...

sprout studio news: a handful of new 15" & 17" necklaces are up on the site. also, a few of my vintage jumble necklaces will be available at orange button (online shoppe) in the next coupla days! it's good having the mister back in town for a few days (b/c i get to put him to work - ha!)

i go back to teaching tomorrow; so hopefully it will be a stress free day as much as possible...i've been doing a lot of thinking about my day to day business & routines & how it all affects my life...more on it later, but it entails some changes in my life - healthy ones...i'll tell you about those later...

in the meantime, once again, thanks so much for your support & emails - ya'll are the best ever :)

lest you think i've passed on to the next life...

...i am alive (hoorah!)...but am on a very slow mend it seems. let's see - i've been out of work for 2 weeks, my mom flew out because i felt like i was ready to die - she stayed with me for a week; got me through my doctor's appointments & surgery that was on tuesday. she just left & i'm pretty melancholy - however, the mister is here for a week, which is excellent. & i'm actually going to try to go back to work starting monday. i'm on this new medication to help my stomach & my general well being & demeanor...doc says it'll take about a month to kick in. so basically, i still get the pleasure of feeling like crap for a while now. but look at me! i'm blogging! now that is progress. maybe i'll even be able to post some more pictures soon (of the walls i've been staring at?! no, no - i'm knitting a really pretty scarf - i'll show that soon).

...& now that i feel like this blog has become my personal health journal, rather than my sprout studio musings...i'll try to be better about posting more sprout news! (but they all get jumbled together you'll most likely be getting both - i don't separate sprout & life very all gets mooshed together)

thanks for checking in with me & your thoughts & sweet words that some of you have sent; it definitely brightens my day - & has made the past few weeks more bearable...

xxx. to all of you! :)

new work + how ill can i possibly feel...& for how long?

first off, the good news: some new treats i worked on; sneak peeks of what's to come later in the month. i started making these vintage jumble flower necklaces...whatcha think? i initially made them for the crafty bastards show i did in d.c. - i'm going to carry them on the sight soon. i have super cute vintage appliqued shirts i hope to get up soon as well. also some new glass necklaces to go up later. there are a few more on my flickr page if you so desire to peek at them!

now, the not so good news - i am still feeling like poo. & right now who i'm thinking about the most is this gal...natasha. she feels like crap a lot too and yet, is so super productive. so i've been thinking on her, & trying my best to keep my head up & still make some work. even though i'm having these highly charged, over emotional set backs pretty much daily...on top of feeling nauseous & crappy. i've got numerous calls into the doc for today & i'm not at work. do i get to feel like this forever? is this my lot in life now? i lay here and waffle between, trying to count my blessings - because lord knows there are people way worse off then me - & feeling anxious, & depressed, & scared...and feeling like i ought to be doing something other than staring at the wall & ceiling...because maybe if i could haul myself off the couch/bed and do a creative something maybe i'll feel better...then my tummy roils over & starts to make funny noises and i seep back into the bed/couch/pillows...ugh. what a depressing blogger i've become...sorry guys.

sprout studio earring sale!

& in the world of sprout: a super duper EARRING sale! hoorah - start shoppin' - go look in the "& etc" section (an oft over looked little section of goodness on the site) & see what grabs ya; i've marked down a lot; and some of them are awfully lonely - there is only one little bitty pair left - you should take a pair home & give it some ear love & happiness :)

ps - large necklaces have been updated too - all new ones!!

just me

the mister left to go back to virginny & teach...all alone. sniffle, snuffle for me...

trust your style

i got a little write up here: trust your style blog
thank you so much! making this down-n-out girl feel better! :)

on another note, i'm reaching a little baby point of stabilization (enough to start posting again)
not healthy, not solved, not all better, but...enough so that i'm not laying in bed snuffling & ready
to stay that way for a long! i'm going to venture into posting land again.

i've missed blogging!

brief update

so i've been in & out of the ER & hospital. doctors are totally trying to figure out what is wrong with me and my crazy intestines. so i'm still not up & running, but hopefully very soon i'll be able to post & make sprout studio goodies...lest my addled brain and frail emotions get the best of me...some days i think i'm going to be like this forever. ugh. thank you for keeping me in your thoughts...
