what i've been working on

sorry for back-to-back jewelry posts, but i didn't get pictures of the things (not jewelry) that i wanted to share with you today, so the post i was going to do on thursday is being done today. lately i've been hammering and hammering and hammering and hammering. and more hammering. just yesterday, chris asked me as i was hammering a bangle if i'd ever smashed a finger. i told him that i smashed my thumb a few months ago and it instantly turned purple under the nail. so, now i'm thinking he's a jinx because this afternoon i smashed the finger that i drilled a hole through last year. that finger can't catch a break! i'm starting to think i don't get paid enough to endure all these injuries! here are some things i've been hammering lately that haven't left me bruised...

in addition to hammering, i've been trying to get my suitcase packed. i'm so happy to have a break from this heat and humidity, but at the same time, i'm kind of at a loss for what to bring! i've been to san francisco before, so i know what the weather is like, but i'm so used to wearing clothes as cool as possible that i'm finding it difficult to think about cardigans and jeans!

also, i just got off the phone with my brother, derek, who lives in pennsylvania, and talking to him always makes me happy, so any throbbing i felt is temporarily relieved because i'm in such a good mood! if there was anyone else on this planet who had a personality to match mine, or completely understand it, it would be derek. i love my brother...a whole lot. how about you, do you have brothers or sisters? are you really close with them?

tomorrow is wishlist wednesday, and i already have my theme picked out. a hint: it's a current obsession, and you saw above what it is (no, it isn't jewelry)!

  8. I have 2 sisters and a brother. We're not close at all. I wish we were, but efforts we make to hang out with each other feel forced. I do love them, though, and I'd do anything for them.
