Working Through the Pain

Gosh…I don’t know how to begin to tell you how sorry I am that I’ve been lagging on this blog.  I’ve been very busy with orders, which is so amazing.  I love, love, LOVE what I do!!

Unfortunately, I somehow aggravated my back injury on Monday (unloading the dishes, of all things) and I’ve been in excruciating pain ever since.  I can’t tolerate pain killers other than basic ibuprofen or acetaminophen, so it’s been a rough week.

How did I injure my back?  7 years ago my husband, kids and I were hit by a drunk driver who ran a red light.  Our SUV spun around and rolled over. I was driving.  By the grace of God we all walked away from the accident, but my back was never the same.

I go through this every few months…but this has been the longest I’ve been in pain…ever.  I think I may have to see a doctor soon. 😦

I probably should have relaxed my back much more than I have this week.  After I finish this post, I promise I will go upstairs and stay in bed until Sunday.  Maybe my fairy Godmother will appear and do my laundry this weekend.

Here are some photos of what I worked on this week, pain and all…tell me what you think:

Boho Cuff Bracelet {for a cure}

I know I posted a cuff bracelet last week, but I just had to share my newest one.

I designed this one for my cousin-in-law Amy to raffle off at a breast cancer research event in Florida. I wanted to make something that was “pink”, but also fashionable.

I love its bohemian, easy breezy appeal.  I wanted it to look hand made.  I wanted the stitching to show. I wanted it to be perfectly imperfect.  Most of all, I want the woman who wears it to feel relaxed and stylish and remember that someone out there made this piece with love and hope for a cure.
