Happy Friday

Hello All My Blog Friends~
Friday~~ahhhhh. One more day at the imaging clinic before a busy weekend. Another day to save lives! Ah, the exciting life of a mammographer~~~

I spent a good portion of my day off yesterday working on the newest "Cavewoman Cuff".



I love these cuffs! The metal behind the turquoise is brass that I stamped and antiqued. The copper wire surrounds the brass and I added some little charms to dangle.

When I'm stressed, jewelry-making is such a comfort! Seven years ago, in June 2001, I'd asked God to bring me to a hobby that I'd enjoy. The kids were getting older and my love of reading, church activities and my work wasn't "enough". And He showed me an ultrasound tech at my work who played with beads and wire in between her patients. I was hooked! And I've just gotten "hooked-er". God is good. He leads us through tough times and leads us into blessings.

I intend to keep holding onto Him, keep focusing on His blessings and guidance. May you all be led likewise~~~love and hugs to you all!

Have a peaceful, relaxing weekend dear...Hope those wildfires are not close to you. I saw that Calif. is under seige again by wildfires. How awful that is for people living in the path! I will pray for your state to have rain, relief...
