Back and getting busy!

I've got an article in Belle Armoire July/Aug issue! The article is "Dragonfly Baby Necklace" and is available on some newstands now. I have another Dragonfly Baby necklace to put up on the website soon.

This week is ALL about catching up. I am FINALLY feeling ok after 10 days of fibro hell. I don't talk about it, because its been mostly managable the past 7 yrs however this past one was a doozee. Coupled with the new puppy and my Nephthys getting sick it was a HARD week. But today I'm feeing alot better and able to function 100%

The universe has other plans for me it seems. I was about to work on the website I got an email from someone letting me know it was down. Went and looked-yup its dead as well is my FTP so I can't even upload photos. CRAP! The service report says the server is down, they files are safe and they are working on it. I HOPE they get it back up soon!!!!! So if you went to the site and got a timed out message-its not you, its me.

So I'll go make stuff instead. I have a small pile of stuff to photograph, might as well add to it.
