Happy Day after Thanksgiving

With a house full and teenagers on the computer I didn't get a chance to say Happy Gobble Gobble Day. Hope every one had a nice dinner and good company. My Tuesday appt. didn't go as I planned. I was sure he was going to tell me when to start radiation but no I got an appointment with the oncology department next week. I have to have more surgery as they didn't get clean edges and further testing showed cancer cells in the lymph node. The best part I have 10 days at home to make beads, take long walks, enjoy the crisp air, read blogs, and try to relax. Then deal with what ever come my way as far as treatment is concern. Just a bigger hurtle to get over. Because I am dancing at all my grandkids wedding.

Earthy colors in the last bracelet I made. Etched amber and light purple lampwork and a raku on discontinue ask glass. silver spacers and glass beads from Michael's. I don't have a Michael's where I live so I am like a kid in a candy store when I go there.


Simple bracelet made out of these cool gray beads from Michael's and one silvered red lampwork bead. Bracelet looks heavy but is so light. I really like this one.

This bracelet is made with 3 of my rock shape mixed colored beads in greens,orange,creams and blue. Dark wood carved beads from Michael's and tile beads and glass green beads from my favorite bead store in San Mateo, The beading Frenzy.


My favorite color combo Lime green and aqua.


Two days after my surgery my wonderful husband took me to BABE bead show in Oakland. I got these Hot pink resin beads. I paired them with sterling silver spacers and my lampwork beads. I didn't see all the booths as I got tired fast but was glad I went. Other finds were crimp covers, sterling silver spacers sterling silver clasps and more resin beads in green.

I am home for few days before starting 6 weeks of radiation. I was very lucky it was small and only in one lymph node. I am not able to comment on any blogs with my lap top computer. I saw some beautiful work from a lot of you. As you can guess I am away from home getting treatment. We came home for the week-end. I have a few bracelets I put together so I will get them up tomorrow. I even got some polymer clay to play with as I have to keep busy. I was to sore to play with the clay after the surgery. But when the radiation starts I hope to play around with it. Hope to get home a few week-ends. I will keep you posted on my creations. Pam
