Happy Valentine's Day! My day as a Nurse

I want to wish all my followers a very Happy Valentine's Day!

Today I worked at my regular job, being a nurse at a local hospital. I start IV lines all day, that's my job. You may be thinking, yuk, how can she do that all day.

I love it. I find its a skill that most don't just aquire, it's something you are born with. Hand eye coordination, a gentle touch. I make a treatment that is unavoidable, tolerable. WE, our IV team, provide a caring service to the public that helps provide care to our neighbors, friends and loved ones. We use our crazy sense of humor a positive when a patient is sick or cranky. It's a great feeling when the patient is smiling when we leave their room or bedside. I've even had a patient fall asleep when I was working. That gives me a sense of satisfaction, that one can sleeping peacefully during a procedure.


That leads me to why I started beading in the first place. A hobby for relaxation and it turned into a passion. Some days, I needed a retreat from my hectic days. I needed to focus on something else.

So here I am, a nurse by day and a jewelry maker/designer at night! My two loves and my passion.

AHHH Good morning.

It's been a super long time since I have blogged.

So busy tweeting, updating my Etsy shop, and working as a IV nurse too!

I've been learning a new skill, wire wrapping earrings. It's such a blast. Trying all sorts of different wires. Sterling , fine silver, brass, artisitc wire.

I find there are a lot of sites out there dedicated to teaching new skills.
Here are a couple examples of my wire wrapping skills. You can let me know what you think?
I would love some more followers. I feel like I'm wrting to my computer.
Give me a reason to blog and I'll update more, and try to get more interesting topics!
Have a wonderful weekend!
