I want so badly to take better photos. I keep thinking that if I could just find more time in my day I could learn more about photography. Here are some recent photos of my jewelry that I feel turned out nice. There is always more to learn.

What I really want to be taking photos of, is my kids. I would rather look back at photos of them twenty years from now rather than photos of objects I made.

Hmmm... maybe I should think about that a little more.

Words - How Many is Enough?

I am really beginning to rethink the whole idea of having a blog. At first I thought I would find plenty to write about, but that doesn't seem to be happening. Of course I probably shouldn't admit that I have nothing to say or you will not bother checking back (That is what blog giveaways are for. LOL) I was trying to figure out why I couldn't think of what to say and I finally realized what it is.

I have used up all my words for the day!

Yep! That must be it. Being an introvert I truly believe I use closer to the amount of words in a day that a man would typically use. You have heard that men use about half the amount of words in a day as a woman, right? That is always the excuse for men to not communicate... they have used all their words already.

So... I claim the same excuse. I have used all my words for the day.

I use my words when I am reading aloud to the kids, working on math and grammar with them, answering questions, etc. I definitely use up all my words when they are constantly bugging each other and fighting over things. (Yes, my children fight!) I also use all my words when I spend time talking to my extroverted friends that don't have enough time in their day to use all their words. :)

So... instead I will just post a couple pictures of things I just listed in my shop. If you have read this far and you want to go shopping, mention "the blog offer" and I will give you 20% off your order (before shipping). Trying to help pay some bills this month. The offer is good until the end of February.

The Winner of the Giveaway

Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments both here and in my email. It is good to see what people like and it is fun to be able to give away something every so often. I had my husband pick a name for me this time and the winner is, Stacey ( I Love Lucy from SL forums).

Thanks again everyone! Be sure to stop in my Etsy shop again. If you don't see exactly what you want, just ask. I might be able to help you out. I also have more hearts like this and you can pick the color of bead if pink just is not your thing.
