Mostly Miscellaneous

I've finally put hardware on all the lanyards I'd had hanging around in "nearly finished" status today. Also made a new one using clear faceted crystal rondelles. Puttering around with different bead combos and trying to find one I like to start a new piece.

I was at the store today and saw a bin that was made for putting up in the shower, probably to hold a loofa or a few small containers of shower gel and shampoo - had two suction cups on the back. I thought it would be a great holder for my most used tools - round nose pliers, clippers, etc., and if I put some cup hooks on the little left hand extension to my desk, it could hang there and free up some desktop space.

Of course I forgot the cup hooks, but it holds the tools just great and I'll pick up some hooks next time I'm out. I've been meaning to get a leather mallet, so maybe I'll go to a hardware store and get both those items.

I've been procrastinating on my photography and as a result very few of my new items are up on Etsy. I really need to get my Etsy store updated. Then I have to figure out how to get some traffic in there!

Working now on a pendant necklace with faceted light sapphire blue glass - will post a pic when it's further along.

I hear you about procrastinating on taking photos -I too am quilty. It's such a process that I find I put it off longer than I should. Hmm...maybe I should be taking pictures instead of being on the internet? *smiles*

Thank you for stopping by to comment! Your work is lovely, I'm bookmarking your blog.

My problem is that I only have evenings or weekends to do photography and it's either a lighting problem (things look better with natural sunlight) or I'm so busy on the weekends it just doesn't happen.

Thank you for your kind comments about my work. So glad you'll be checking out my blog every now and then.

I too usually end up getting pictures only on the weekend. That's when I have the most time to dedicate to doing it. I have a proper set up, it's just so time consuming. I have probably at least 20+ new things to picture and get up on the site (and they're great things...just haven't done it *sigh*).

I'm shooting for this coming weekend. I'm from Rochester, NY and the sun doesn't shine much here -so I had no choice but to go with a photo set up package. If I didn't -I'd never have pictures! : -)
