b+w : day of the dead bead

A quick black & white shot after work today for Maya’s b&w challenge. Can you see how dry my hands are? Ick! Well, I guess they don’t look as bad in the picture as they do in real life.  They are cracked and dry and they hurt. I am hoping that the little bit of moisture in the Oregon air will help them to feel better.  The bead is from a friend at work.  She knows how much I love Day of the Dead stuff and got it for me. Such a nice and thoughtful little gift. I thought this picture would be timely since I didn’t get a chance to post on All Saints or All Souls day.

    Your hands don’t look bad in the picture! Mine are getting there but I keep slathering on lotion in the hopes that they won’t fall off the deep end completely.

    What a sweet little bead! And I can so commiserate with you on the dry skin business. Ugh. My woes are compounded by the fact that I really can’t stand heavy hand creams or greasy lotions on my skin.

    Safe travels too!

    Cool bead.
    get yourself some burt’s bees cuticle cream, it’s amazing for dried out fingertips and hands.

    I made eyeball t-shirts and skull beads this past month, thanks so much for your tutorials!
