Donna has been cutting my hair for years. When I tore the ligaments in my right wrist a few years ago, she colored my hair too. She does whatever I ask, is always on time and always kind and friendly. When she asked me to make a necklace for her "hippie" cousin, I said yes.
I have a tendency to make myself nervous about commission pieces. "Is this what she wants?" "Is this going to work?" "Does this look terrible?" I work myself into a dither. Whatever a dither is, anyway.
Just finished this pendant. Still need to string a simple necklace and add some charms. I hope she likes it! But if she doesn't, I'll take it to Benicia Bead and they'll find a great home for it.
Two wonderful things this week: My braces came off! Yay!
And our new fridge arrived on Wednesday. I never realized how much I LOVE having a working fridge!!!
It's all good. Hope it's all good for you, my friends.
Made a pendant for myself. I'm playing with little copper boxes that I fold from thin-gauge metal and fill with resin, and I always make the "experiments" for myself. I'm the guinea pig here~~
I'm also reminding myself to stop a second, in the midst of the daily stresses, and remember what I believe, what is truly important. To remember Who I trust.
It's a rainy December 1 here in Northern California. My DH is watching "The Santa Clause" and the orange kitty just stopped walking over my keyboard and rubbing against my hand as I try to use my mouse. :-)
