Help I have fallen and can't get up!

 Dude, I fell hard. I was cleaning my guest bathroom for an artist staying with me at my home this weekend. She is teaching a Master Class at work, more later. Stupid me I had wet feet AND was standing on the edge of the tub cleaning the tiles up top and bam, on the floor.
I hit my butt, jammed my finger, hit my ribs, dang. My daughter came in and said "mom if you break your wrist, finger, or arm, that's your money maker" Isn't it weird that my income depends on my hands, not my brain, not my sparkling personality, my hands. 

This weekend I have guest bead artist  Jennifer Geldard  
teaching 9 students at the studio. A whole weekend of glass beadmaking...heaven. The class is on Sat and Sun.
I always love having artist in. They give me a creative kick in the butt. I love to see if I can translate their skill sets into my beads. 
Jennifer is one of those artist who is very giving, supportive, and encouraging. I will take some pictures so you can join in. I leave you with bead porn.


  1. Ouch! I hope you feel better soon! But beadmaking should make up for any owwies! (Is that how you spell that? Looks funny!)
    Great beads!
    Enjoy the day.

  2. Oh no! That's not good! Hope you are on the mend soon!

  3. On no, hope you don't seize up too much! Have fun at the class.

  4. Bathtubs are very very dangerous! I've always thought the rim should have the rubber swans on it, not the bottom. Watch dem fingers! Torching glass probably isn't one of those things you can learn to do with your feet.

  5. Ouchy...I bet you are sore today! You really do not realize how important those hands are until they get hurt. My carpel tunnel is getting so bad..both hands too.
