It was a dark and stormy night...

...No, not really, but I did get some writing done last night. I wrote 500 words, roughly 2 pages. It's not much, but it's more then I've written in a very long time. And, I figured out the scene that I was having issues with, which is why I hadn't written in so long. It felt good to write. I've been wanting to, and lately I either didn't have an up to date version of it so that I could continue, or I just didn't have time. But I took some advice and emailed myself my story so that I could work on it when I have a few minutes. That really helped. Just knowing it's there and available as long as I have an internet connection is good.

In other news, I have my A&P test tonight, and then that's done, so that's good. Tomorrow's Friday! Whoo! The week's almost done... that's always cause for celebration!

And now, I must get to work. Have a good day everyone!

Light Box

So this weekend, I made a light box. It was relatively simple. I got some tissue paper, a cardboard box that I already had, and a sheet of poster board. I cut the box and taped on the tissue paper, and viola... much better pics. Go check some of them out in my shop and tell me what you think. they're the ones that are white and glowy!

I also finished my Christmas napkin rings and a new pair of earrings.

That's been the extent of my productivity for the week. Have an A&P test Thursday. Much studying needs to be done, so projects will have to wait for next week.

Halway to the weekend! Yay!

vacation and sick

Went on vacation last week. It was ok. My aunt got sick the second day of it, so we made the best of it, but it wasn't the relaxing vacation that we had hoped for. And then I got sick as soon as we got back. Wonderful. Still fighting off this cold, hopefully I'll be back to normal tomorrow or Wednesday.

I made some Halloween earrings this weekend. I'm also working on a few other projects, including the last of the baby blankets that I have to finish. And I had to order more wire for the napkin rings. I used all the green that I had, so as soon as I get that, I can finish those. Three of the four are done, so it's really just a matter of waiting for the supplies.

My day's half over already. Had to make an early morning airport run. Can't wait til Friday. The weekends are never long enough.

Middle of the Week

It's been a couple of days since I posted. I'm still working on the afghan, but I only have a skein and a half to go (and then the border, but that shouldn't take long). I'll post pics of the afghan as soon as it's done.

I finally got some help taking pictures of my jewelry that's not blurry. So, here are some of my newest postings in my store (pics above!).

I can't wait for Friday. Vacation next week. Yay!
