|PG tips tea from England. I think I'm on day 4?? of no coffee. (yeah!)|
|Looking out the window. Birds and squirrels are so very busy this early. I watched them take care of business.|
|Normally I would never take a picture of my feet. But really, they played a very present part in my morning.|
|Beans. My constant companion. No matter the time. No matter the place.|
As I said I thought about the birds and squirrels. A very peaceful Beatrix Potter thought. I managed to finally get a good picture of a bird! A male cardinal. They move quickly, rarely staying in one place for long. I took this shot from inside my house. Bird photographers are seriously talented! I've been trying to take a picture of a bird since February...
I thought about my boys. They're always on my mind. Always between every other thought. I love them both so much!
I thought about putting the pieces in the cabinet today hoping that the effort of the presentation I had worked on would best represent the effort I put into my work.
|"Earring Tree" made from some branches in the back yard and dipped in the homemade candles I was making a few months ago.|
|Sapphires, turquoise and silver dangle on a white cloudy frame pasted on thick silver card stock.|
|The reverse sides: their descriptions, my quirky side giving character to the jewelry, and their price. :-)|
|Open window necklace frame. The necklaces are hanging from tiny nails hammered into the top of the frame. Each necklace has a "descriptive description" as well.|
|The rings are displayed on slices of wood and tufts of "moss", cork board rounds and beautiful glass coasters with white cherry blossoms.|
|Again, handmade with love. So much love and attention. The ties are actually small flat braid candle wicking.|
In the end the cabinet held the first round of goodies with absolute ease. I put only half of my work in just to see how it goes and as pieces/if pieces sell I'll have something to replace it with instantly.
I thought about getting a job and Grady's NASA Summer Camp that I want him to be able to go to more than I can express. He's such a good boy and I want him to get out there and make friends, have friends, talk about friends, BE A FRIEND TO OTHERS.
I found out today that I'm in still in the running for the photographer's assistant position :-) I am going to look into other photography opportunities as well. Honestly I can't wait for something to come through where I'm bringing home a paycheck!
