So... it's slightly embarrassing that my last post was on Easter Sunday and this one is a few days before Mothers' Day. Not that I don't have a good excuse (besides Pinterest) ... I've been otherwise occupied (let's see if I can get through this post without using that word that starts with B and rhymes with 'dizzy') making jewelry, going to a homeschool convention, and selling jewelry. :)
Like this ring.
|Incidentally, do you know how hard it is to self-photograph your hand with a ring in anything like an attractive position using your other hand, without using a tripod?|
I turned 21. I'm a real grownup now. :D
I finished a 72,265-word novel. Ashburn. For a hint about what it's like, see this pinboard.
I've also begun book 2 of the series, titled Bryce. (Yes, it has a pinboard too.)
I am very much enjoying my writing these days. On the advice of a really good friend, who heard it from our mutual really good friend, I began carrying a notebook around in my purse for on-the-go inspiration lightning bolts. I've also been carting my laptop along on trips in its chic matching aqua sleeve and writing in hotel rooms and waiting rooms. :D Writing looks like it's going to be a much better future stay-at-home-mom career than selling handcrafted jewelry. :)
Blogger has completely ticked me off with the new dashboard design. It took me a precious ten minutes to figure it all out all over again. I could have been doing important things during that ten minutes, people. Plus I think the look is really ugly. I didn't like the old look either, but this one is awful. :P It's so white and boring and blah. Blogger has become Blah-ger.
I felt so sorry for my blog the other day that I petted it and played with it and gave it a makeover. Do you like it? If so, I'd love to know. :D If you don't like it, be nice and don't mention it. :D
I have a post appearing on Meditations of His Love, about "The Line". So do check that out if you'd like. :) If you leave me a comment letting me know you read it, I'll reply with a comment. :)
When I next return, I hope to share some more pictures of the shiny jewelry I've been designing, and some shots I took the last time we were at the jaw-droppingly gorgeous Callaway Gardens.
So... leave a comment if you still follow me! :D I'm curious about how many lurkers I have. :D Say hi, I won't bite. ;)
