Sorry for the radio silence, but it's been a week, for sure. We had a near tragedy with our young adult chocolate lab, who was hit by a car one evening. He's recovering quickly now, but for a while there it was dicey as he ruptured a lung and had unspecified lameness in addition to the horrible abrasions and cuts. We're very lucky to still have him with us. Fortunately he's a good patient and I'm a good doggie nurse, so between pain meds, antibiotics, ice and heat, we're on the mend. This was the final straw in a series of roaming episodes that have prompted us to take a hard look at our dog containment system. It will be changed. It was devastating to see him so hurt. There heavens are recalling a lot of furry friends lately, and my heart goes out to everyone who has lost their dear companions recently. It's so cold and quiet when they're gone, isn't it?
Come see me in booth # 603 at BABE this weekend in Oakland, CA!
Needless to say the accident put a little damper on my preparations for BABE this weekend, but I'm back on track and will be at the show in Oakland with all kinds of focal beads, new sets, jewelry and great affordable holiday gifts. I'm excited about this show as I've not done it before, and I'll be sharing a booth (#603) with my friend Joyce Chadderdon of Choyce Creations, who has delicious PMC, titanium and niobium, and sterling silver jewelry and components. We're going to have fun for sure.
So, if you're in the market for the fixin's for your holiday creations, or a little sumthin sumthin for yourself (I know you've been good), please stop by my booth at BABE and say hey.
