Stupid Wisdom Teeth and other news.

So I had my post-op check for my wisdom teeth today.  I'm healing well, but slowly.  We had hoped to do my "annual" cleaning today, but it's going to be about 2 weeks out.  Turns out the reason that my lower left is still so sore is because they had to remove a small piece of my jawbone to get the tooth out.  OUCH!  Good news, I was too busy being a geek about my Xrays to have the usual dental-related panic attack.  Not the high point of my vacation, but not as bad as it could be.

I've gotten my garden basically planted, which is awesome, and if anybody wants to come over and help me get rid of a walnut tree that has miraculously grown 4 feet(!) this year, that would be even more awesome.  Seriously, this tree wasn't there in February and I don't have the yard for one or I'd keep it.

I'm getting quite a bit of needlework down, lots of hardware bracelets, work on a baby afghan and a scarf commission, as well as a few more Kindle/Nook cases.

I posted 5 new items to the Etsy shop today, which is great.  And hopefully, by the time I go back to work, there'll be a few more.  I'd like to get a least a couple of the bracelets posted in the next few days.

By the way, I don't often remember to mention it, but I am willing to do custom/commission work, within reason, just drop me a note.

Hope your summer is getting off to a great start too!

Sorry about that.

So much for a post every week.  I've been busting my hump trying to get an Etsy store up and running and I did!  It's small, not a whole lot of items yet, but it's up and it's getting traffic.  Go check it out!

I had my wisdom teeth out this week, all four of them, and if I knew now what I new when I agreed to do all at once, I wouldn't have, that's for sure.  I would have done the bad one separately from the other three.  On the plus side, time to crochet and to nap with the cat, I've got the crochet work portion done on two more Kindle/Nook cases for my Etsy shop, just need to do the details.

Also, I have to finish a bracelet for my dear friend Jesse, the first one was too big.  Silly me, I assumed he wears a bracelet with the same loose fit that I prefer.  I didn't think about the fact that since he does a lot of wood and leather work that he would wear a tighter bracelet for safety reasons.  Well, once I have his bracelet done, I'm gonna get the one I need to post them on Etsy finished.

Will let you know when things get rolling!
