things are happ'nin'...ready or not

Bye-bye Santa

Today was filled with a little flurry of activity from several directions at once regarding consignment sales, both local and out-of-state.

Holidays are coming, and one of my sales today was even a Santa pendant. Fun!
Thank you to a new customer P.C., and to M.L. !!
You're the best!

aren't I the motivated one today?

I tried something new today, and exercized at 8:00 a.m., instead of at 8:00 p.m. It actually felt cooler, or at least cool enough, and a breeze even blew a little. I've always preferred the heat over the cold anyhow.

So - that's out of the way, and now I'm off to Bead World for sterling silver chain and a large bale, to alter the length of a necklace for a customer. She's my "mystery customer" so far. We had a very pleasant conversation by phone, but I haven't met her in person yet. That's for tomorrow!

I'm on the hunt for a large, chunky silver cross, or blossom, or bird, or whatever else catches my eye to be the focal point for these beads:

it's been a while

Oak Creek in Sedona, Arizona

Well, it has been quite a while. I have been on the computer a lot for work and for my own amusement, and beading only some, and painting not at all...and evaluating what parts of technology I want to keep or let go...

My thoughts are:

blogs -wouldn't mind keeping on with this blog as an online journal for myself.

camera -keep practicing, need to take a class.

email -tool, speedy, not as nice as old-school correspondence, I'm sick of seeing the abbreviation "LOL".

Etsy - keep trying, it's always going to be at my own pace, nice community in general.

Facebook - sort of like feeling unpopular in high school all over again.

Flickr -Yes! How I travel since I can't afford to. Nice.

Twitter - I'm too old, don't need it, don't text anyone about anything, nothing about my life is THAT urgent.

You Tube -how? Probably will figure it out. Crashed my CPU trying to burn a movie to DVD.

website -fun to create for someone else, maybe someday I might need one.

creating with my hands and talking face-to-face...Make the time, take classes...DO IT!
