OH NO She Hurt her back & New Beads...

Hi all, hope you are doing well...life is good here, well kind of, Grace hurt her back really bad last weekend after the very successful Toni Lutman class came to an end, Toni was the best teacher ever, the students, Grace, Frank & I feel very honored to have had her here...photo below...


The SAD news is that Grace hurt herself really bad, she has been off of work for a week & she is on her way to an MRI & a Neurologist on Wednesday...Due to this unfortunate accident we have to cancel Heather Trimlett's class next week...rest assured everyone will be refunded & her class will be rescheduled for a later date...we are thinking Spring 2011...Grace did add more firt to the shop, she just wont stop working...

This past week, while Grace was suffering, hubby & I took a few days off, went to Montana to visit the grandparent (hubby's)...we had a great time, they were so much fun to hang out with...from picnics to lovely drives & conversations that went on forever, we enjoyed our time with them & laughed so much...& cried a bit too, specially when Grandma gave hubby this very cool book of all the letters & cards that he & his brother had sent them over the years...Hubby & I went for a long two and half hour float in a tube on the Madison River among other fun times...

Now about some new yummy beads, if I say so myself,  I made a couple of weeks ago & have been listing them in my etsy shop today...shipping is still free for all orders over $50.00 until Tuesday the 7th of September...


Last week's delicious bead goes to one of my favorite jewelry designers & new glass artists around, Lori of Pretty Things...for this week, I have one of my Ribbon Beads, the colors are mostly blues & soft greens...yum, to win it make a comment on this post...

I am so excited about the dandy beads! I finished a necklace and earring set with the ones I bought from you and will take pictures and send them to you soon! Hopefully this week. :)
I need to share it with Sioux as soon as she is back in to town.
The new yummy bead looks very Art Deco with the ribbon pattern. It's quite beautiful.
Best!!
Gail

I love the stories you share about the trips you and your husband take and the special things you do together. You two are so cute and sweet together!! Its been a busy summer for me and I've missed checking in on your blog and beads, but I'm BACK! Lovely lovely things, as always... Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh man, I know how bad a bad back can be -- four MRI's later and I'm delivered of two smashed disks for life. I wish her the best!

I'm excited to be a winner, too, but more sad about Grace's back.

Although, my parents and in-laws are no longer living, I treasure the precious memories I have of our time together.

Jelveh, I'm so sorry about Grace and her accident. Back pain is awful. Please give her my best. I love the peaceful landscape of Montana, it's so beautiful. I am impressed that you can get everything done to keep your business going yet still find time to relax with your hubby, you 2 are adorable and family ties are so very important. I sent you a convo this am. I love the new beads you put up. My daughter had threatened me if I don't do their company Fall Show so I guess I'd better get busy!
Peace and Love
