Whatcha Think?

Can you see I've been fiddling? What do you think of the new layout? I added a Flickr badge so you can see the latest pix I've uploaded and an Etsy mini so you can see what's in my shop. How cool is that?
I also added a few things to my Etsy shop yesterday and had gobs of fun with Bloglines. If you aren't familiar with it, then let me tell you ALL about it! I love to read blogs, but I rarely do because I forget, or hate having to click on each bookmark. (So last year!) A guy on one of my flickr groups mentioned this site and I'm in heaven! One stop shopping for all your blogs! Add each blog and then you have a list and one click will bring up the blog without having to go anywhere!
Now, I command you to spend MANY hours on the internet surfing these sites!

2 More Weeks!

Yep, as any red-blooded Stay at Home mom is doing at the moment - counting the days!! OK - the normal disclaimer... I love my kids! Today, my 7 year old reached the I'm bored with everything stage, and I hit, I'm too tired to think of new ways to make the day go by....
But, in 14 days, the kids will be whisked away in the Magic Yellow Bus...
So, in the meantime, I'm trying to get organized... (No laughing!!) I truly need to get my butt in gear and do something consistent with my beads and critters with this blog, my shop and even (gasp) my website! I am hoping to have that done this week.

I did make one command decision and decided to list in my Etsy shop or my Flickr site for the moment. Of course, I haven't listed anything new lately, but I did make a decision....
We got some new neighbors last week and the deer that have been hanging out in their yard are hiding for now. However, I did a few snapshots before they decided to stay in the trees.
So far, I've seen two young bucks, one big buck, three doe and two fawns. They ride in a herd, except for one doe. She keeps to herself, and I've invented a whole torrid story of why she was ousted from the group. Yep, I need to get a life!

OK - Stop your begging!!!! Here is a picture of a bracelet I made with Miss Faith's bead she sent to me when my knee first started to bother me. So, it's my Knee bead (even looks like one!) I had to make matching earrings too...
