NOT for the Faint of Heart Hempworx

This post contains a graphic photo of my arm which was at the wrong place at the wrong time.  Photos are at the end of my post.

My 15 year old dog woke me up in the wee hours of the AM gagging and I knew she was going to loose her cookies and needed "outside" ASAP.

I grabbed her, jumped out of bed, it was dark, I was still half asleep so I didn't grab my glasses.

Too late I remembered that I had left my vacuum cleaner in the doorway instead of putting it where it belonged.

I tripped on cleaner, hit the door, and knew I probably had hurt myself.  (It was later determined I had put my arm out to stop falling and my arm and the little metal latch of the door stop and my arm "met".....)

I got the dog outside and looked at my arm....not a pretty site.  I got the bleeding stopped and proceeded to the bathroom for the large bandaids I keep on hand and wondering what to put on it   I decided to use the Hempworx Relief cream.  I put a real thin layer on the gauze portion with a Q.tip.  On my way back to bed with the dog I grabbed an ice pack from the freezer which I applied to the area in the even there might be swelling that would occur.  I had done all I could do for the earliness of the hour.

When I removed the bandaid the next day I realized I had 2 NASTY, deep gouges, in my arm.
I applied a new bandage frosted with a real thin layer of the Relief cream....but before applying the bandage I used the eyedropper of the 500MG Hempworx CBD oil and applied less than a drop to each area, waited about 15 minutes so that the oil would get down through the pores and then applied the bandage.    I repeated this every evening about an hour before I went to bed and leaving the bandage off for about an hour to air.

I continued my regular regime of 10-15 drops AM and PM which I have been doing since April 2018 as I knew it would ward off any infection and help with the healing process.

What is really amazing (along with the healing) is that I had absolutely NO PAIN night I had itching that nothing seemed to help so I took a Benadryl, sprayed my arm lightly with Dermaplast and then my normal Relief and Oil routine.  (I keep a well stocked medicine chest, for emergencies like this.)

Photo #1.       After I removed the bandage in the PM of the day of  injury.
Photo #2.      (All of the white stuff you see is skin....the Relief cream I put on the gauze was VERY THIN.  I just used enough Relief to moisten the couldn't even see it).
Photo #3.      One week after injury photo.
Photo #4.      Photo I took today which is day #8.  I left the bandage off all day today and it looked better and better as the day wore on.  Shortly I am going to put just a little of the oil on (No Relief) and bandage lightly so the air can still get to the area.

Needless to say I AM AMAZED..............

If you are interested in learning more about CBD oil and the products I use send me a comment and I will respond or you can email me at:

Did you know we all have CBD receptors in our body which are activated by taking CBD oil?
Not all CBD oils are the same.
CBD is legal in all states within the US?
The CBD oil I use is made from the hemp plant and NOT the marijuana plant.  Many CBD oils are made from the marijuana plant and the CBD content is really low.

Pour Run Off jewelry focal

This porcelain artist palette necklace focal was made using Pour "run off".  I only had 2 of this surface in my stash so this one is mine and I will will wait for another neat  design to happen and I will do another for sale.  I contacted the company where I had originally purchased these and they are no longer in stock....figures.....
  SO much fun.  I used clear beads and silver to finish the necklace.

A pour "run off" picture.  So many options and techniques to use with "pouring".

Pour Painting

Paint pouring has become an infatuation with me....when I go to the studio in the evening it "calls" to me...I swear.

Techniques that I have learned through the years as well as mediums come into play with all types of painting even something as "out of control" in so many ways as pour painting is to an artist.  I have become "more playful".  If a pour doesn't turn out well I still have options and sometimes these options of play just add to the uniqueness of "me" and not that of another.  I like to find out what I need and the basic technique and then kinda quit.  It is such a freeform that copyright doesn't come in to play....duplication is pretty improbable.    It is fun learning how to HAVE control in achieving a look ...

This is my glass vase that I have had for a long time and it had a big crack in it. Rather than throw it away I decided to do a pour.  The vase was frosted.  Because the base is so big and down to so small I just wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. (Vases are poured from bottom to top).    I LOVE IT and I wonder if I could ever achieve a similar "openwork" if I found a similar big base small top vase in the future.  This is one of my most favorite pieces and I am glad that it is defective and I can't sell it.

This is how it looks at night with some lights inside.  SO PRETTY....


I love the awe of satisfaction.
Slim, glass
