It's really....

It's really a wonderful thing when you realize what all of your photography woes have revolved around... Your light box wasn't white!
I could bash my head into the group for this simple mistake. To my eye foam core looks white, but upon closer inspection I have found that it isn't white at all, but a sickly, yellow off-white that drove me crazy when it came to photos. I have learned my lesson and I must say that my photography has gotten much easier to deal with, seeing as how I have figured out the root of my impending insanity.This photo needed small tweaking, only a resizing really. It has made like so much easier, to think- a white that's really WHITE! Hehehe. The focal of this piece is a leaf made by Melissa at Inner Realm Creations, I combined it with carnelian and Swarovski crystals then used Bali silver as the final touch.

So they said....

We were supposed to get snow tomorrow, here in Colorado. I severely doubt that now. Today it's a nice 70-some degrees with an interesting breeze that makes me smile as it runs through the chimes on our deck. I haven't been down to the studio in some time, and I lack a camera so I feel rather useless.

I have a list of things that I need to get done, mostly revolving around photography or adding items to the site. I did manage a few pairs of earrings the other day, but only one or two simple pairs, nothing "amazing". It seems the jewelry muse went on vacation with my parents. She picked a terrible time too!

Here I am....

Once again, in a rut. I promised myself that I would try to update this every few days and I feel like it's been forever! I think it's only been three days. Hmmm... Either way, today had the smell of fall- and Halloween. That smell that comes around every fall. I really can't explain it. I think that my boyfriend would say I'm smelling snow, but it's more than that. I really wish I could bottle the smell, I love it so much! I got to smell "fall" at 5am this morning, to take my parents to the airport for their annual trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina. They go for their wedding anniversary every year. I then proceeded to return home to my warm bed. Sadly, I didn't bead at all today. I got to record a new song, and then I've been working in my art book all day.

Yes, I've been seduced by the awesomeness that is book altering. I promise I'll get back to beading soon! I don't think that I can go too long without it! I get an itch to bead and play with my shiny bits. Until then, I dabble in paint and markers and all things of book altering. The mind of an artist never rests.
