Hi Ann,how sweet of your husband to give you such a wonderful day.You are such a sweet lady and you deserve the pampering.I too make some jewelry.When I was in the hospital 4 years ago,I was in for 6 weeks and we went to the craft room and the therapist had beads so I taught everyone how to make a bracelet.We had a blast and everyone had a nice remembrance of our hospital stay.Congratulations on your up coming anniversary that is wonderful Ann,I hope you and your husband have 49 more years together,I'm glad you had a nice Valentines day
