New things!

Today I posted a couple of new items, my fancy barn owl and my pretty sloth! Last week I had two sales and am hoping for at least the same this week! Gooooo me...finally some sales! I have to make more things tonight and hope everything goes well, since this weekend I will be away from my creating. Now since I am selling things, I want all my time to be dedicated to it and don't like to be away from it for too long - I guess that's a good thing! :) Also etsy just made a wish of mine come true today...draft listing! Now you make a draft listing for an item and save it, then publicly list it when you want to! Now I can put the listing together anytime and post in high traffic times...if I only had the iphone, I could list from anywhere!!!!!!  My wishlist has expanded to a new camera and iphone....well I guess if I keep selling, it may become a wish-come-true-list. :)

Happy almost 3 day weekend! 


Yes, I love technology, but not right now, as much, you see.....

Sometimes I wish Kip was my brother.....he and Uncle Rico could fix all my technical problems or at least provide some comic relief.

I really hate my camera, like really hate it. It was a birthday present from my husband (then boyfriend!) two or three years ago. I think he was a little disappointed it didn't turn into a prize possession of mine, but then he witnessed the failure firsthand. At first it was ok. At the time it ranked high in compact digital cameras and then it went downhill fast. Exhibits 1-5.....

Close up in bright light - more like underwater pool setting 

even better.........

Night scene, that magically cuts people in half!

Action with zoooommmmmm! 

 Pitch dark with a flashlight setting - just kidding, it's close up in bright light again!

Now before I'm labeled a whining camera-basher, there have been some good moments. Exhibits 6-9.....

It's always loved the beach!

Although there are occasional good moments with my bad camera, it just not working for me. Yesterday I took about 400 pictures of 3 items to sell and came out with about 10 usable ones (plus had to take redo photos of an item this morning because they all came out terrible yesterday!). It also took me 2 hours to upload the pictures because it is now refusing to simply upload to iphoto with it's adapter. I had to take the memory card out of the camera, stick it in a digital photo frame and hook the frame up to the computer to download the photos. I already have to take more time taking pictures than I would like, because the light is never right for my temperamental, princess camera, but also have to make time-consuming sets to get a decent picture.....exhibit 10.

It's not that dark in my apartment, it's the camera again! 

This camera is just plain wasting precious time. This weekend I'll be on the hunt for my next camera....I looked up trade in programs for my existing camera and was offered a whooping $4.00 buy back credit. I guess that should tell me something!

Have a DYNAMITE weekend! I wish that was my last name.....dang!


Shake and Bake!

HI! I have been absent for quite some time, but now it's time to shake and bake! I've done lots of boring paperwork and can now finally start on the real business of making and selling, producing and profiting. (fingers crossed!) I'm excited about my new designs and the potential of making my dream a reality, but have to stay positive and remember hard work can only lead to better things, but you have to actually DO the hardwork! ......On another note my camera has died and I need a new one pronto! I'm not the best at picking winners and can't reason buying the 800.00 dollar one I want! If you have any suggestions, send them my way!

Here's some new items.....

The peanut bin!

My sheep pillow! 

Happy Thursday!
