Today was attempt number 2 at my Remicade Infusion. For those who were with me at my prior blog, you know that I spent Thursday and Friday nights in Lebanon to outrun a huge snow storm so I could have my Infusion. You also know that I had a medical problem which kept me from getting most of it. Well, I went back today for an infusion-redo. My mom brought me, and my lovely daughter, Madison, went with... She has a thing for pink (just like her mama) and lime green (just like her mama)... And she does NOT like her pictrue taken right now...

See what we had to resort to? Mom and I had to tag-team her to get a photo! What should have taken about 2 or so hours ended up going from 11:30 until 4pm! It was a long day, but my little Maddy was very patient. (You would be too if your Grammy bribed you with a 15 pound bag of Gummy Bears!)

So, anyways... Now we are home, and I am DONE! Like stick-a-fork-in-me kinda done. As soon as I got the kids settled in I went down to my bedroom to go to sleep, but visions of beads were dancing in my head. So what's a girl to do? Well? I got up and made stuff! I need to get better pictures, but for now I will just pop in these over-exposed poorly lit shots I took. They'll be re-shot and available for purchase tomorrow over at MarcyMade:

Ya, so as you can tell, right now I am having a love affair with silver! Tomorrow I will work on some gold projects.

Oooooh! I almost forgot - tomorrow I will be bloggin' ya from CoCoKey in Boston! We'll be swimming our Thursday and Friday away! (Well, the kids will swim... I will mostly knit and then swim a bit.)

MAN! Is it icey out! Everywhere! But the worst thing is... I think I have lost my house! See? Behind all that snow and ice? I am just praying that we don't have an emergency that would require us to get out of our front door because, as you can see, I only have about 1/3rd of it left.

So, amidst all of this BLAHHHHHH going on outside with all of the gray, what do I do? Grab all the colors I could find and start beading! The problem is... It's been a while since the last time, and when I put everything away, I must have been in a BIG hurry... becasue this is what I found when I pulled it all out...

I have made 2 necklaces already today (pictures to follow shortly), but these beads right here will be my next project! Don't they just scream "SPRING COME NOW!!!"

I am thinking that these may make a fabulous memory wire bracelet, and maybe some really cool/fun/hip stitch markers... hmmmmmm.


Here are a couple things going into my store tomorrow...

More to come... so much fun! I am really enjoying getting back into designing and color!
 
So we are off to a great start to vacation! Sleet and freezing rain canceled the trip to Pat's Peak for snow boarding today. We have over 4 feet of snow in the yard... and on my deck... and now it is being covered and saturated with inches of wet rain and sleet. We have a metal roof (Thank GOD!) but our deck is about at its limit. Please join me in a moment of silent prayer for my deck... We have been planning to tear it down and rebuild it for 3 years, but haven't had the money to do it. Come on RAIN!

Although it is truly beautiful, I am pretty sick of all of this snow! And with the rain coming down, I am truly waiting for the power to go out. I would post a picture of all of the rain and ice, but this girl is NOT going out in this mess.

Maddy and I did venture out to get Kevin's dry cleaning, and the suede soles for the slippers. And then, just because it is in the same plaza as the yarn shop, we went and got our nails painted. It was VERY slippery all the way home 

Now I am off to work on the second Cotton-Candy-Rific Slipper for Maddy. I hope to have them done by the time I go to bed tonight, but will probably have to just settle on finishing them tomorrow. 

Tomorrow I will also be working on some jewelry, and possibly some beaded custom stitch-markers for my new shop MarcyMade! Pictures will be posted as I get things done pver the next couple days.
