Better Days -- New Chime

Hey guys,

The chime you see in the later post of how I create a chime is doing well and listed in my shop. My IRL life has been hectic.. and so has my Etsy one. I work part time, though do extra hours (I leave for Ireland in 15 days so it s a"yipes!" for $$), I also run my Etsy shop, a 2nd shop to support my new charity, and my boss's shop who makes jewelry. I'll be handing over her shop to her soon along with a tutorial of how to survive Etsy. My grandfather has been having ups and downs lately and has just returned from his second E.R. visit. The meds he was on for his back surgery post-ness was giving him nightmares and hallucinations :( which lead to a seizure which led to bad calls. ugh. Its been a depressing 2 weeks and I hope the climb up to Ireland is a better one.

Good news:
I recently received a haircut where I chopped it all off and now its wild and curly (naturally) and its fun and I love it. I feel like a hot fairy. oh boy.
My etsy store which supports my charity got a sale recently :) the cold season is coming! ahhh! <3. style="margin: 0pt 10px 10px 0pt; float: left; cursor: pointer;" src="" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5105796458870795346" border="0">
But anyways... feeling a bit down I created another windchime and have titled it "Better Days" in hopes that the days to come will shine brighter and truer. I just got back from seeing my grandpa (they sent him home Friday yey!) and he's doing better and seems to be a-okay. not hallucinating as bad but still wakes up and is scared to get off his bed. Which is weird for me? Because I have hellish nightmares -all- the time. so it was weird to talk about his "disease" when its a normal happening for me.

Anyways! the chime:
