Problems with searching Etsy...

So we list and renew our items on Etsy - some people do this more than others - it's generally the only way to have your work show up in the searches. Today they announce there are problems with listings not showing up. Photos appearing as grey squares, whole categories showing zero stuff.

Until this is fixed, I won't be listing anything new, or renewing anything.

But I still make stuff, every day.

Tonight Leanne (leannimal on Etsy) won her first challenge on Project Runway. It's a fun show to watch; so many different types of designers, it's inspiring!

Have a great end of August!

This is fun...

Here's a fun game to test how well your brain works:
How to play the Flash Fabrica Game--

1. Touch 'start'
2. Wait for 3, 2, 1
3. Memorize the number's position on the screen, then click the circle from the smallest number to the biggest number.
4. At the end of game, computer will tell you how old your brain is.
Good luck !!

it's harder than it looks, but my brain tested at age 34, and I'm alot older than that, so I was thrilled.

It's the little things like this that make life worth living, eh?

A Joke, Kind of- and Saturday Thoughts

So George Bush Sr says to GB Jr: Did you hear? Russia invaded Georgia...

GB Jr says: Oh! I hope Atlanta is OK...

Only a few months left for this sadly comedic duo... and not a moment too soon. As I get older, I have less and less patience with liars and fools. At this point, though, I feel sorry for the next yayhoo who takes the reins. Trying to right this sinking ship is a task I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.


I've been a bit creative this week- here's a picture or two:

The turquoise is Chinese, stabilized- I've had it for quite a few years. Copper freshwater pearls complement the look.

The old photo is from a few I picked up at the flea market. The necklace reminds me of something she might have worn. It's made of glass crystals, swarovski dangles, antiqued brass and gold filled chain. Pretty.

Both are available in my Etsy shop
