I'm a blog slacker...

You know you've been neglecting your blog when you forget what your login and password are! A lot has happened since my last post in July....some good, and some bad. I've been helping out my husband at the practice by doing some dental assisting in addition to my cleaning, decorating, and supply purchasing. I've learned a lot...more than I would ever want to know about dentures. lol I've also developed a "stronger stomach." I had a brief overnight stay in the local ER after having chest pains and an accelerated heart rate in Oct. My neurologist in Miami finally diagnosed me with Sarcoidosis, an autoimmune disease that can affect nearly any organ of the body. I've developed some arthritic symptoms, some swelling, and the fast heart rate is also caused by it. It's been a bumpy ride, and I have my good days and my bad days. At least I know what is causing my host of symptoms and caused the nerve damage in my arms.
The good news, is that I've branched out in my creative work, and have had a ton of fun creating art dolls. I've also acquired a vendor space at a local antique store called Laura's Emporium. I sell vintage & antique items, along with my artwork & jewelry creations. It is a great place, and has been a wonderful experience so far.
I am offering two of my newest art dolls on Ebay starting tonight. Clicking on either of these pictures will take you to my Ebay auctions. I will be offering more on Ebay, and have a bunch of new felted flower brooches to add to my Etsy store too. Thanks for checking in! I've missed you all!
