Still sick!! Gack!

Unfortunately, my household is still sick! Even one of my kitties has an ailment and has to go to the vet this week, as soon as I'm feeling able. We've had the stomach flu, the regular flu, a virus and now I have completely lost my voice. (and yes, anthony is pretty happy! LOL!)

Munchkin now has a rash all over his little body from the amoxicillan that he's on.. We go back to the Drs wednesday for another checkup and hopefully they can give us some advice to give the little guy some relief!

I haven't really done anything noteworthy in the studio in the past week or so. The plates that I'm making for one of the NAN halters will be different than any of the other silver plates that I've done so far. I have a plan but it's been hard to execute it correctly. I think feeling kinda tired and sick has had something to do with that.

I've been very good about working out, even while I was sick but I think I'm going to lay off working out until I'm completely better. Working out helps with my shoulder issues (by getting the blood moving and therefore bringing down the inflammation of my shoulder) so I really can't wait until I can work out again. My shoulder has been killing me, and on top of the sinus headaches from the sinus infection, I've been in a lot of pain.

Anywho, enough whining. Above is the new bridle on my Whisper resin..

Quick Update

Last week and into this weekend and today, my family has been very sick. THe baby has a double ear infection and double pink eye that all came on very suddenly. (within 24 hours). He also had a temperature of 101F this morning. Last week my husband and I had a weird stomach flu, where we were nauseaus and lost our appetites... So it's been a trying time.

I have gotten SOME Stuff done in the studio, such as finishing up the romel reins and mentally moving forward with the halters for the NAN auction. I've got part of it designed in my head and I'll be working more dilligently on them in the coming weeks.

Above are pictures of the finished romel reins on the headstall they belong to.

Still chugging along...

I'm still chugging along on the Black romel reins I've been working on for some time now. They're about 3/4ths of the way done. Still have about 16 more knots and some other little things. Then it'll be onto a matching breastcollar and working some more on the NAN donation.

Munchkin started Daycare last week and that was very emotional. I also battled two colds this week... well three if you count Munchkin's. I've had one that came and went and then another one start that has left me exhausted. I've been going to bed at 7 or 8pm and the next thing I know, it's 4am.. So I've been really tired.

Hopefully this week will yeild some more time for me to start working on some of my own bits and buckles while munchkin is at daycare. I definitely need to do more silver etching..

Pictures will come tomorrow or the next day..
