Be Pampered by The Ferris Wheels

There are so many fabulous shops on Etsy that every time I come across one that I really love, I must share it! Like The Ferris Wheels : "easing aches and pains with comfort and style."

I came across this shop while in the Etsy Forums one day when I read a marvelous positive thread started by theferriswheels. I ventured over to their shop, which is run Sally and forgive me but I don't know the other gal's name, which is a "sister and sister in-law who named our business in memory of our mother/mother-in-law, Mrs. Ferris." Well, was I ever happy that I landed in their shop!

They create and make just about anything to ease aching muscles, relax and calm your head from painful headaches, sooth aching feet, shoulders, wrists and... oh gosh, the list is endless!

Some of you know that I have Fibromyalgia, I just don't like to broadcast it. Besides, I've learned to manage with it and life has been AWEsome for several months! Anyway, on top of that I have mild arthritis in my wrists - yes, I know I work with wire - go figure! I use my Tiger Balm, Aspercream , Theragesic, etc. along with my plain old cold packs & heating pads. Well, after visiting this shop, I felt like I hit the jackpot!

It was difficult to decide what to buy as I wanted it all! Although I wear wrist braces, I don't have any type of hot/cold pack for them other than my homemade rinky dinky thing. So I purchased two of the Wrist Hot or Cold Pack (matches my hair :) Oh... my... gosh! I no sooner received them in the mail when I heated them up and put them on. Well, actually due to the Arizona sun while sitting in the mail box, they were already heated - LOL!

Let me tell you, from purchase to the excellent handmade quality and customer service, they are AWESOME! I use my wrist wraps just about every evening after a long hard day in the studio. I'm already making a list of what to buy next that matches my wrist wraps. Well, you know... a girl has to look good while sitting around with hot/cold packs on.

So head on over to their shop and have a looksie for yourself - you'll be amazed at the huge selection and wide variety of colors available. Oh and another plus, very affordable!

Hmm? Wonder if they make anything to soothe an aching tush?
Have a pain free day!

Yes, it's been a few weeks since I've last posted and I've truly missed blogging and visiting my blog buddies. There is just so much is going on right now that it's been a bit overwhelming and sort of makes me feel like I'm in a daze. Hence the funny little monkey above.

I have a great blog feature to do of a fellow Etsian that I'm SURE everyone will love, but wanted to at least give an update today as I've had some people ask what I've been up to and if I've disappeared. So, I'll be doing the feature tomorrow.

For those who know me and my blog, I do not whine, cry, air dirty laundry, etc. So this post is a little different. Just want to let you know where I've been and that I plan on blogging regular happy blogs soon :) Here is a brief update of what the past 3 weeks has been like for me - in no particular order:

- Mark's beloved grammy passed away 2 months shy of her 95th birthday

- Jason (my youngest son) broke the news to me that he is moving to Portland :( Better schooling for what he's doing. Very sad and I'll miss him terribly, but am happy that he'll be there with Jeremy (my oldest son).

- My baby brother Chris (okay, not such a baby really) received a promotion and is moving to Florida Oct. 9th - he has a lot to do in a short amount of time. Very sad again.

- Another family member (won't mention name as I'm not sure who knows) announced that they will be moving out of state as well. Ugh. More sadness.

- Been extremely busy with my shop, not bad news of course and am very grateful, just very busy on top of the above. This has helped to keep my mind occupied though.

Those are pretty much the main stressor's, for lack of a better term. Why I'm not a complete ball of stress right now is beyond me, but I'm hanging in there. However, I think I own stock now in Kleenex now.

One bit of happier news... this is where I'll be soon! I need some type of break.

Much love, peace and happiness to all!
