No project

I was in too much pain the first day and too sick the next day from the pain meds. I also slept alot. The pain medication makes you alittle loopy so I wouldn't bother with a craft project!

Bring little project to hospital or not?

I took a book to read and my journal to write in, but I used neither. They both stayed packed. I slept a lot in the hospital and watched TV if I felt up to it. The rest of the time, I just vegged. I don't think I'd have felt like sitting up and working on a craft or have been able to focus my attention like I would need to. But that's just me.

after a day like today i wouldn't mind just lying around in bed with nothing to do! yes, all due to pro-op frustrations and lack of communication! but, got too much to do now for my last day so i wont spend more time venting and *****ing!

i wish i had a portable dvd player, or a laptop to play movies!

thanks too for your nice thoughts! -terri

best to ya elk queen! i am right behind you on the 25th! i got one more pre-op test to do tomorrow that just came up... drats!

in answer to question about the beading, my necklaces i generally string them with coated flexwire. some i bead to the clasp, and some i finish off the ends with chain. i started making just the pendants and beads out of the polymer and stone. i was hoping to make them so that other "real beaders" would use their own imagination and do the finished jewelry. i had no intention on making the whole piece. beading actually drives me crazy! there are artists so good at it, not me. i do like working with clays, and making individual beads, so that's where my interest is. but, when i put just the pendants and loose beads in some craft galleries they asked me to make finished pieces, so that's how that started.

then, i became a fanatic about shopping at each and every thrift store i would come across, looking for old, exotic, vintage beads and broken parts that i could rip apart and incorporate into the pieces. i have a magical closet full of that stuff now, but, these pieces just aren't selling at all. i get great compliments, but, it ain't paying the bills! i am a freelance artist by trade, and have been doing graphics and illustration my whole adult life, but the times have changed and it is tougher to get "real" art jobs. so, i thought maybe the jewelry might be good for pocket change. so far it's just been a fun thing to do!

sorry if this is all off topic! but, now i do have a better idea of what it may be like during my hospital stay, so i'll just try to relax and rest there, if i can! (i guess that's what hospitals are for! ...good thing my friends talked me out of bringing my banjo!)

the very best to you al!!!
