All four of these were in my foot!
I woke up early this morning to get ready for my second surgery. They took the pins out of my not-so-little-anymore foot. This time I got there at 9:00 by permission of the surgeon and they brought me in at 11:30. I woke up in recovery at 2:30 and was home by 5:00! It was a much better experience than last month.
While I was waiting for Paige to pick me up, I had about five minutes to waste, so I cruised the Etsy Treasuries just to see if I was featured in any. Lo and behold, I was not in 1 treasury, nor 2, nor 3. No, my work was represented in no less than 4 treasuries! And two of them were curated by people I didn't know! Too cool.
Then, while I was waiting for my dinner to heat up (after having come home from the hospital) I decided to check e-mail and found a message titled "The fame just keeps piling up" from Mr Tim McCrieght himself which read:
" Hi Ashley, Joanna, Lora and Patrik, When you have a minute, check out this link at the online portion of Art Jewelry magazine. As you'll see, your smiles are now available around the world. I hope this finds each of you well and enjoying the closing days of summer. Tim"
A great beginning to the day and an equally auspicious ending. Only wish what transpired in between was just as notable. Well, I guess it actually was notable. The beginning of the end of my ordeal. With a taste of fame to act as bookends! Lovely.
