New Camera

I finally purchased a new camera.  Here is a picture of my "Bubbles" pendant taken with it.  It is easy to get a good picture with it.  It is easy to get a nice, clean pictures with it.  It has it's own re-chargeable battery so I don't have to mess with taking batteries in and out.  Just plug it in and let it go. I can also plug it into my laptop to download pictures.  That is whenever I get around to learning how.

It's past time to open up my Etsy shop for the holiday season!  I need to edit, update and freshen up my old listings.  Now it is back to the battle of props and crops for good eye-candy pictures.  I've got to get everything out, dusted and cleaned.  Glue the leg back on my little tripod.  Spray paint that starfish white.

Getting My Life Back Is Wonderful

Two months I accepted a different position at the grocery store where I work.  The job puts me back onto graveyard shifts, but it is part-time and I actually get days off and is pretty much a set schedule. I changed the hours in the glass shop to reflect this.  I am now closed closed Sunday thru Tuesday and open Wednesday thru Saturday.  I am only open from noon until four Wednesday thru Friday and until two on Saturday.  My days off are for both the shop and my job.  This new job has given me a set schedule to build the rest of life around.

A month ago I got my house back.  Since then it has become such a calm and peaceful place.  I do not miss the chaos and stagnation I was drowning in.  I finally am catching up on things and getting myself and my life back in order.  I cannot believe how much better I am feeling.  I am waking up each morning ready to face a new day.  I have a new direction, hope and energy again.  My creativity is starting to come back.  I have actually been working hard on getting things cleaned up in the shop. I have made a good dent, but I have a lot left.  It is so wonderful and amazing to feel positive about my life again.
