“ Back In The Creative World Again”

It’s funny how life throws you little curve balls just when you think you have it all figured out…I was sitting watching a movie with my husband and was rubbing my eye and realized my other eye was only seeing peoples forehead and chin and their faces were all crunched up in the middle ( Very Freaky) The next day I went to the eye doctor and found out I had a macular hole in my eye with traction.. 10 years ago the doctor said they would pat me on the back and tell me I would slowly go blind….. Not something to look forward to in life. Hey, Who would have thought of all the things to go wrong with your health it would be your eyes….So to keep a long story short. On Aug 31 I had major eye surgery to correct this condition. It’s a wait & see with my other eye because I have the traction without the hole. When all is said and done after having cataract surgery ( Eye doesn’t like to be messed with so forms a huge cataract in rebellion) I could have 20/20 vision again. I feel like the worst part is over and really ready to be amongst the living again……Thank you to all my friends and family who were there for me. Sweet Kathy for letting me stay at her condo for 2 weeks post op. because I couldn’t come up the mountain to a higher elevation until gas bubble in my eye was gone. To Leslie & Mike for coming and picking me up to go to “Sweet salvage” A fabulous show I was not wanting to miss. What this has made me realize is how important family and friends are to me . Believe that you can win the fight with the power and passion in yourself and the prayers and comforting words of others….. the above photo is of my son Dylan and his fiancĂ©e Britney and me with L.A. city in the background. They have set up shop in San Diego and are reps for our new jewelry line….dreamerzstudios.com

I have started doing wholesale shows with my Hubbie. This was our booth in Seattle. The next week we did a show in San Francisco. Then hopped down to Carmel to sell to a shop he supplies and then down to Arroyo Grande to restock my “ Chrisy’s Cottage” inside “Posies”. Was so good to see the girls again.
