Earlier this year, Jill and I decided to do a cuff bracelet swap. Well, it took me forever to send Jill's to her and she was pretty much the same way. We just couldn't really decide how we wanted to make them and it just took a few to decide. But we are good friends(she's a Bama girl like me),,we have even got together and had a artfully good time, so we weren't stressing about the swap. We both work,,(yes,,I went back to work this week,,just for a little while) and we knew we would both enjoy whatever the other made for our swap. Below is what was in my WONDERFUL box!
She Altered a Jewelry box for me and it is way cool. I LOVE IT, JILLY! I am going to keep it in my Art Room and store some of my favorite beads and findings in it. And some cute little shells and whatever I treasure. It is going to be my treasure box cause I do so treasure it. Jill is an amazing Artist and I have always treasured any pieces of Art that I get from her.
And the Cuff bracelets are so awesome! She made me two! I only made her one,,I owe you, Jill! I Love both of them and can't wait to wear them and show them off.
The details in the bracelets are so cool. They are very Vintage looking and I do Love any thing Vintage! She also made me a necklace that is awesome too! I can't wait to wear it too!
Love the red bead on it. And also the wire wrapped turquoise beads! And she had alot of goodies in the sack that the necklace is laying on it the picture.
She also had it packed with some great tissue paper that I am keeping to do some collaging and make some great backgrounds for Journaling. And I was so excited that I tore into the package and didn't take a picture of it. But it was wrapped in the neatest dragronfly paper. Yup,,I am keeping that too for some art projects.
This absolutely made my day. It was a rough day because I came down with a good case of Bronchitis yesterday. I went back to work on Tuesday. By Tuesday night I was feeling really bad and coughing and having chills. Went to the doctor yesterday. I got a nice shot of Antibiotics/cortisone and some antibiotics to take by mouth. I went back to work today but I sure didn't feel like it.
Yes,,,I said I was retiring,,,and I still am. I just felt like I should go back and help with the beginning of school as it's hard to start out with a new person that doesn't know what to do. I Love the Lady I work with and didn't want to leave her in a bind. She is a good friend. I am going to have a bone spur taken out of the top of my foot at the end of this month and then I am retiring for good.
So other than being sick today,,the rest of the day was wonderful. I can blog happily again, and I recieved a wonderful box of some great Art from a Precious Friend! Thanks again, Jilly!
And I am going to try to finish up the rest of my trip to Riverside with my Darling Friend Rosie this week-end.
I am back and I truly intend to stay current as I have alot of catching up to do!
Hugs to you All!
