My primary focus with my artwork is the jewelry aspect. My goal is to make it wearable art instead of just a craft. Few people see jewelry as artwork for reasons I don't understand. Or they see only certain types of jewelry making as art and others as craft. I want to change that and show that crafts are art. Quilting, jewelry making, carpentry, and other things classified as crafts are truly works of art. People need to open their eyes, mind, and heart to this.

This may be my last journal entry until after the move.  I won't have internet access after July 30th, and I have only a vague idea of when I'll have it again.  Probably not for a couple weeks.  We're moving on August 4th and will be in Oregon sometime on the 6th or 7th.  So excited!

There will be no new jewelry made until September or later due to my wrist/hand.  I'll probably only make commissioned pieces because of the pain.  As for what's wrong with my wrist there's four possibilities:
1. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - I got tested and it came up negative
2. Severe Tendonitis - unlikely because even the worst cases heal within 3 to 6 months.  This has been nearly a YEAR!
3. Arthritis/loss of cartilage - very likely considering how much I use my hands/wrist.
4. A break that healed wrong - I had a bad fall about 3-4 years ago and landed VERY wrong.  My wrist swelled up, turned purple and all kinds of ugly.  The reason I didn't go the hospital is because it was the dead of winter (and a really bad winter with record snowfall), cold enough that any exposed skin would get frostbite within minutes, and we didn't have a car.  We'd be outside in the ice and cold waiting for a bus, and in winter they're very unreliable, sometimes arriving 30 minutes late or not at all.  So I just dealt with it at home.

I'll get my wrist looked at after the move.  This time around I'll be demanding an X-Ray or MRI to find out wtf is going on because this is unacceptable.

In the meantime I'll be painting.  I can paint with my brace on.  If I like the paintings I may sell them or whatever to make some extra money.

So this is my farewell and see you later because typing hurts even with the brace on.  I need to finish packing because we're loading up the truck on July 31st, then spending several days cleaning the hell outta this apartment.  We want that $800 deposit back.  There are only a couple carpet stains from Jasper vomiting (he's our brown cat, and would eat like his meal was gonna vanish, then vomit a few minutes later.  We put a golf ball in his dish and it's pretty much stopped him from doing that), and we have a carpet shampooer that can take care of the stains. 

Wish us luck and a safe trip!  The route there looks like nothing but sunshine.  The forest fires in Oregon aren't anywhere near where we're living, and they're 75% to 90% contained.  By the time we're there the fires will likely be gone. 

See y'all in a few weeks!  Expect photographs!

Hi!DO NOT THANK ME for llamas, favs, or watches in my comments. If you feel compelled to do so please scroll down to my shoutbox and thank me there.

An even better show of thanks would be to look through my gallery and fav, watch, or comment. Or even leave a llama badge.
