Let me explain I left the desk to go to the Doctors to see about removing a skin cancer on the side of my left thumb but while there she decided to burn off all she could find in one session which happened to be 21 in total located on my fingers, hands and forearms. I've had them treated this way before with no problem...just causes a superficial blister under the skin cancer and they dry up and fall off. But this time blisters started forming within hours and steadily increased in size and pain increased till Monday I woke with red, inflamed, swollen hands and fingers with blisters that were 1-2cm in width and up to 1cm high. I was going to take a photo of my hands but they look gross LOL. I grew up near the beach and the damage was done long ago I'm afraid.
Some burst blisters on my left hand were infected and I couldn't bend the hand till today. So here I am with sick leave for a week, taking antibiotics and pain medication. I have a tone of stuff ready to get made and two sore hands not able to make anything with...aaarrrggg the irony of it all. SSSooo here is my desk for Wednesday hardly changed to last Wednesday. My cuffs got polished and there is my drill ready to do some cold connecting. The card at the back is one I made hubby for Valentine's day. To the left of that card is a journal and to the right a pyramid card and mixed media card. All of these are from past posts.
This is closer to the little ice resin filled bezel I was drilling
At left in the first photo is a new toy called a One Step Looper that makes precise eye pins. I haven't even had a chance to try it out!!
As there isn't much on my desk I thought I would show you a bit of stuff that is in my craft room. To my right I have my book shelf. It sits on cabinets that hold all my jewellery making stuff, my Cuttlebug things, paints, glues etc etc. At left in the coloured jars are my enameling powders and my Golden gels at the right. My trusty Dremel is obscuring some of the stash :o). On the top of the book case are some things I have made
The gorgeous Swallow book at top left I made in a class with Jen Crossley...images for it are here. The rusty art doll opens and there is a working clock inside. Its over 20cm tall.
To the right of the art clock that you can just see in the image of the book shelf is a altered Pez container I made in a class with Michael De Menge a few years ago.
So now for the first time ever on a Wednesday I can go and visit other WOYWW players on the actual day!! Wether I can type a comment though may have to wait till tomorrow or later as typing hurts!!
