Monday Miscellany - Some New Photos for Art Fire Store



Before I get into the Miscellany, Blanche from Sha-sha Handcrafted Jewelry got the "One Lovely Blog" award and passed it along to 10 other crafty bloggers, and one of them was me! You should click over to her blog and visit all her nominees, too!

The rules are:
  • Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
  • Pass the award to 10 or more other blogs that you love. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

My nominees (and you don't have to accept, just know that I think you've got lovely blogs!) are :

ABeadADay
Baubles and Babbles
Bead Origami
ErtheFae
JustATish
Kell's Creations
NiftyKnits
SmuTopia
WillowWalker
WireMySoul
I worked on photography Sunday and re-listed one piece and put up one new listing. While I have a number of new pictures ready to go, I'm going to space out my listings to try and get some front page views.

Anyway, here's the old vs. new main view pictures of one of my pieces:

And here's the new listing



I'm not sure if I'll add the props to this necklace's listing - it's a very busy necklace as it is, but I kind of like the idea of the jewelry posed as if on one's dressing table just before getting gussied up for the evening, which is why I thought I'd try those props.

This one will probably go up today:



I didn't get around to cleaning up and re-organizing the workroom. Ended up working right at my computer desk with one of my shoebox lid DIY lap beading trays. I showed off one of those pieces late on Saturday, but I'm so fond of it, I'm going to share it again.

It deserves a great name, too, but I can't seem to come up with one. What would you call it? I'm very doubtful that I will ever try to sell this, I just like it too much to give it up!

Also am working on another piece with Lucite floral bits from The Beadin' Path, a light pink rose (like this one but not such a bright pink) and two large leaves (like these but in a light olive) - I thought I was finished, then got a wild hair and tried something different, it's not working out exactly as I want, so I'll be playing with it more.

I've added a little slideshow to the very bottom of the blog (you'll have to scroll all the way down to the footer) where I've put pictures of myself through various ages and stages in my life that I've stored in Photobucket for one reason or another. If you want to know a bit more about Dawno, please take a peek.

Hope you come back tomorrow for Tuesday Tidbits. Also, want an easy way to read my past Sunday Wanderings or Thursday Interview and Review features? Here's the link!
