5 Snow Days and the results...

Besides wearing out the family's new Wii, washing a million loads of laundry and playing in the snow, the below pictures are evidence of my (somewhat small) productivity for my Etsy shop.  I'm having fun working with the new cool hammer faceted beads and tools (pliers!).  Maybe tomorrow I will venture out of the house for the first time in 6's pathetic how 6 inches of snow has brought Georgia to a complete standstill!

Ailing hands, no new designs

This is purely a vent post, I have been suffering from what my husband calls "bad pliers pain" over the holidays, so much so that I can't grab onto anything.  Pulling blankets/sheets up in the middle of the night makes me wince, tying my son's shoes is unbearable, cooking is a challenge, and needless to say...I can't create jewelry right now.  I am going nuts!  New supplies are taunting me from my craft table.

So I'm going to the doctor about this tomorrow.  That's a big step for me :)
