First off, thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts surrounding my spine surgery. My surgery to have an artificial disc replaced was very successful, thanks to the skill of my wonderful surgeon! The surgery took place on January 20th, in San Francisco, California. This xray image shows the artificial disc in place:
While I am healing, I will do freeform beadwork, so I won’t go into creative withdrawal. My first project will be a wearable art necklace and here is my bead palette:

On the topic of beads and beading, I want to give a huge “Thank You” to Barb Kiehn, who so kindly gifted me with this book:
It looks like a wonderful resource book on beading! It was very thoughtful of Barb to give this to me to enjoy while I’m recuperating!
That’s all for today! Now I want to hear from YOU! What are YOU doing to nourish your creative spirit? Hugs, Carla
