Just When I Could Have Used Cheering Up

Not a winner, not even a honorable mention.

I thought I'd check the Rings & Things contest this morning to see when the results were due to be published and was surprised to find they were already up.  Congrats to all the winners, some very nice work.  But still...I am disappointed on this one, I really thought my Urchin Wings choker deserved a honorable mention at least.  Oh well!

I could have used some happy news as I'm down with the blight....not sure if it's a summer cold, allergies or just the physical ailments that go with depression, but I've hardly had any energy for a week and even had to cancel class.  I'm resting a lot but sleep is playing hooky and I am finding it hard to stay focused which is really weird for me as I lean towards the obsessive side.

I did manage to find the energy to pick up my car (20 minutes of driving and then in bed for the rest of the day) which is now fixed and running that's a good thing.  The bad thing is I've only managed to do about 15% of what I normally get done in a week and I'm exhausted, I feel old and worn out. 


  1. Wow, what a great beautiful bracelet! For me you are a winner with this bracelet!

  2. Thanks Eveline...though it is actually a choker, designed to be worn with a classical strapless black dress.

  3. Oh sorry, I have probably skipped! A choker is still great!
    Kind regards

  4. Wow, what´s a wonderful necklace, grandios....I am still dumbfounded.... ;o)I like this.... you are the number ONE !! greetings Andrea

  5. problem. Andrea...thanks :)

  6. Mikki, this is a winner, whether Rings & Things thinks so or not! Stunning creation!

  7. Well I think your choker is absolutely stunning and is definitely a winner in my mind. I could never imagine creating something like this so I am in awe of your work. Gorgeous!


  8. Contests are over rated. This is awesome. Don't let some judge tell you differently.
