there are so many pictures of the zoo, we're gonna have to do it in installments.
today, there will pictures of birds. because i like birds. :D
omigoodness that was a lot of birds!
i hope you like the sqwakers! :D
mostly the jewelry making, hopefully. :P
so i know i was supposed to post a couple posts about the brevard zoo and disney from my vacation. i've been working such weird hours at my job lately that i just haven't the time or energy to get around to editing them, sadly.
i keep ending up with the swing sort of shift (like, 3-11), and then when i get home, it's almost midnight, and i'm way too tired to really think very straight, let alone spend the time editing photos. since my job is very labor intensive, i'm pretty worn out by the time i get home, both mentally and physically. and that's never really a good way to edit photos, ya know? especially since some of them have to be knitted together to get the panoramas.
as for the jewelry making while sleeping thing from the title, i've started wire working again.
i'm currently in the middle of making an "egyptian coil" bracelet out of goldfill wire. i also made a music note necklace a few days ago, out of a little silver wire and some left over chain.
it's an eighth note, which is 1/2 a quarter note.
it's incredibly lightweight, and i'm thinking of doing a whole series of little musics in silver and gold wires. they'd be pretty cute for a musical wedding, don't you think? i'm not normally one for wedding stuff, but i think these would lend themselves well.
also, i've been trying to make ear cuffs (sometimes called ear vines). it's not going so well. i'm not sure if i have weirdly shaped ears or what, but i can never get the little part that holds onto the ear to work for me, though it'll work for my mom just fine. =(>_)>
in other faceplant news, my twitter keeps turning the symbols > and < into the coding language for them. this makes it difficult to read tweets, since many people use emoticons in their statements (or AS their statements), myself included. i've no idea how to make it stop. this is what we call "buggarific", if you're wondering. so if you've any ideas, please let me know! i'm using the newest firefox, and i can tell you what addons i've got if it might be relevant. all my techie knowledge can't seem to save me now. :/ i will even download a NEW addon, if need be. seriously, this emoticon-addicted little monkey is desperate.
but! mostly i just want to know what you think of the music notes.
well, i want to know about the twitter issue too, but i'll take opines on music notes if that's what you've got. ;P :D
edit; apparantly, the image didn't work. fixed now.
people, do you know who Digital Doodlebug is?
if you don't, you should visit her blog and probably her shop as well.
because trust me, she's pretty awesome.
she was having a giveaway on her blog a little while back, where she would give you labels or stickers if you commented. well, i commented, and per the instructions, only expected 1 sheet of labels, which is grand, because printing my own labels is bloody annoying to me.
she sent 2 sheets of them, plus return address labels. omg!
emoticons cannot express how much i love these labels.
they're perfect, frankly, and they're a wonderful quality.
terrible photos because of cellphone, but they're still wonderful labels!
if you need labels for your business, you should run over to her shop right now and give her some business.
Pronounced "Impatience", and named after the little ground-covering flower, Impatiens Designs hopes to be your favourite costume jewelry boutique. I use the highest quality materials possible in my pieces, and the only pieces that make it here are the ones that I'm happy with and would wear myself.
