Go check out the funky monkey girls etsy store, we add some more stuff. Monkey mom bought the business an AWESOME camera BUT my lowely little laptop got bugs on it so I can't update the shops as fast as we want.

I take the pictures, save them on a computer & then e-mail them to mom. The Viva Mexico should be updated soon as well. I am still playing with what this camera can do, main problem is shadows. How do I get rid of the shadows when it is me trying to take the photo...ARGH!

never ending picture battle is it?

Well, her time has adjusted to getting me up at 0500-0530 in the morning. Now, I can't just sit down on the couch to watch DVD's or read without petting her all the time as well. She is loveable but a brat all at the same time and I wouldn't trade her in for nothing:)

Creative fairy has hit.........briefly!

That darned fairy, if I thought it would keep her in my studio, I would clip her wings but that is rather evil so I have to live thru her journeys. Let me see, I took a bunch of pictures to update Etsy shoppes, monkey mom is working on that. I create something that I am not sure what I am calling it yet.....I made some jewelery and basically hung up more pictures, clean up and moved things around. That has helped.

I quit all my pills that are like motrin etc...tummy feels much better, body aching worse, sigh. I will keep fighting the good fight.

Okay the spark is slowly coming back

I actually made a necklace and some earings!!!!!! hooray! Now, I am developing a schedule with Ms Peaches that will include her walkies at night. SHE LOVES to walk everywhere. Now, she is on full watching for those evil killer bunnies! they are evil bunnies and must be barked at and chased out of everyone's yard. If you have ever seen a basset run, it is funny!

I am anemic as well so health issues are seriously flaring up with me lately. Please pray that they go away, I don't have time for them because I am getting brave and daring & getting myself out of my house more to meet people. I am very outgoing but shy all at the same time and let me tell you, that drives me nuts!

I have a great idea for making more polymer and a cool necklace tie in with it. I am hoping this weekend is sunny so I can take pictures between Ms Peaches demanding walkies. Can't complain about that because I will start losing some weight and getting into shape. Now, if she will quit waking me up at 0430, life will be grand LOLOLOLOL!!!!!

Well, I finally got one of my heart tests scheduled, so that is good. My computer at home has loads of evil nasty things in it so I have to find someone who can fix it for me for fairly inexpensively.

The new work camera aka for jewelery pictures is the BOMB!!!!! Oh , the photos are awesome. I can not do any type of photo type things in my day job computer so I take the pictures then send them to the Monkey Mom to get them posted in Etsy...what a pain!

Monkey Mom sent in some jewelery pictures in a beading magazine so I hope we get selected! Great for her.

My creative fairy is still in mourning so hopefully I will be able to create more soon. Today is the first day that physically and mentally I am feeling more like myself again, praise the Lord!

Health issues

Picture by Jolene Hardy
They suck. I have to get a cardiac stress test done. Bad hearts both sides of the family and my EKG was a bit off. My provider is awesome getting this type of stuff done so we I get older, they have something to compare to:)

Took a break from posting/editng pictures, stress break as I call it. On top of day job issues, Tom & I broke up.

I am frustated and stressed out but thru the grace of God, I will perverse. Mom bought a kick butt camera for the business so I can continue taking great pictures without relaying on other people's camera. I am really excited about it.

A cold and kind of rainy day at good old Tucson.....where or where has our summer time gone?
