This thing on?

Hello my sexy bitches, remember me? Where've I been? Sick! This whole time! Not very sick just a mild virus that sucked out my will to do anything but netflix. So yeah I'm back, here's some stuff.

Some more brooches.

When I say some I mean tons.

Do you know I was about to be stressed about not blogging or listing new things for so long but since several commenters said don't sweat, just take care of yourself, I was like 'nah, I got permission.'

Check out the pattern on this ammonite.


Here's this very dark one.

But I dont know if I'll be listing today, taking all these pix was enough.

Oh so guess what y'all?

I turned 40!!!!!

I feel so accomplished, just from being 40. Like, good for me to have sat around and allowed time to elapse.
And Mr. Devices and I celebrated our 9th anniversary. We decided it felt more like 4 years than 9 though.
   I still have nightmares that I'm back with my exes. Shit. What a handful of... handfuls.

What else happened?
Got so used to reading on the kindle app that the other day I was reading an actual paperback and I found myself tapping on a word to get the definition to pop up.

It's like the times I've found myself in front of my house clicking the car unlock button on the keychain and wondering why the front door's not opening.

Is this just me?

Also my mom's cat Blanquito taught himself how to use the toilet.

Dad just caught him on it today.

Here's a couple bracelets, haven't made those in ages.

Very victorian tribal in the mix of elements.

This one uses a long section from a kutchi hair ornament.

And this big ol' rhinestone buckle I curved for braceletness.

Also some beads.

And these earring pair thingies.

Someone asked me how I managed to drill a hole through the glass in these.

It's very thin glass and the layers of resin sort of protect it. I don't know.

I also made a couple necklaces I haven't yet fully photographed.

And I have some bead soups and earring pair collections to photo as well... but I think the next couple hours are gonna be dedicated to a nice nap.

Glad to see you back, but it's going to take me at least a week to digest all these goodies. Loving the brooches and bracelets. Congratulations on being 40 and happy wedding anniversary.

Happy Birthday!!! Hope now that you're feeling better you can do some serious celebrating. Happy anniversary as well to you and Mr. Devices, that's worth a hoopla too!

LOVE the ammonite, I'm slobbering. And your natural beads, and - well, you are fabulous.

Man that's some guilt trippin, doggie! Pretty awesome :)

Just when I thought that I may have conquered my addiction, back you come! I shall control myself and absorb all this slowly. (maybe)

A very happy birthday to you and happy anniversary to you both

Congrats on the birthday, dear, tho you are still a spring chic in my book. Those pins are sooooo seductive. The doggie apparently returned everything he had taken; big guilt!

RomAntiqueSoul said...

Welcome back! Glad you got some rest...well...I think you got some rest, good grief girl! You just created a ton! Great stuff, as always!

I'm so glad you're better. I have both tried to click on a book AND unlock my house with the car key fob, MY SISTER!
The dog gif made me laugh happily, until I wondered if he was just trying to smother the baby. Hmmmm.
