*tap*tap* Is this thing on?
Too busy to blog, too busy to craft…. Oh who am I kidding. I just haven’t had the gumption to do either lately. I’m kind of in a crafting purgatory - can’t really make up my mind what I want to do on any given day, if anything at all but sit and veg to t.v. or facebook/blog surfing. One day I decided I wanted to try making my own vectors, and downloaded a trial version of Illustrator. Worked for several hours relearning it (been a while since I took…

If it is working for everyone…. You may see something nifty-neato on my blog here that I figured out how to do tonight.
You’ll need to be seeing my blog in a browser to see the spiffyness, so if you’re peeking at this via a reader or FB or something, please click through and have a closer look!
Besides… I need for people to let me know if it worked! I know *I* can see it, but can you?

So I made some flower beads, not for the Smoosher’s challenge as they were a couple days late, but intended to be included on some handmade Mother’s Day gifts. I created them late on Friday night, and baked them on Saturday morning after getting back from the car dealership (oil change, tire balance and coolant flush). I use a toaster oven to bake small stuff like beads, and so far it has been a pretty good little machine. It only runs 30 minutes at a time, the first 30…

Smoosher’s Challenge - Buds and Blossoms
I was a slacker again, and didn’t come up with anything for this month’s Polymer Clay Smoosher’s theme, which was Buds and Blossoms. Not until after the fact, anyway… that will be in a forthcoming post tomorrow. Anyway, if you’d like to check out some of the work of those guild members who DID participate, please go check out our guild’s blog at Polymer Clay Smooshers. Also, if you visit soon you can vote on what we will be doing for our next challenge…

Contemplating site redesign
Because one post today just wasn’t enough. LOL Ok, anyway. I’m finding myself contemplating redesigning my blog again. Getting bored with it already I guess. The tough part? My blog software doesn’t really come with any templates. This one, and any new ones, will have to be hand made by me. There are *some* places that make templates for this platform, but very few free ones; and if I felt up to it, I could probably find one for another platform and port…

Perfect (almost) Steamed Veggies
My husband and I started a diet, four weeks ago this Sunday. We’re on NutriSystem, which so far, has been one of the better diet’s we’ve tried. We’ve tried Atkins (lost pretty decently, gained it back and then some), and MediFast (lost ok, also gained back plus). Atkins just seemed awfully strange, and MediFast was… lacking in palatability. But so far there are only a small handful of NutriSystem items that I’m not fond of, and what is…

Sorry about that. My blog seemed to have gone *poof* for a day, I suspect it was when I did an upgrade on my old WordPress blog software, it decided to overwrite my index file. While I don’t use that program anymore, and no one can see anything in it, I am keeping it updated in case I change my mind and want to switch back to it. Anyway, my page is back to normal again. Yay! And I think I *may* have solved my quandary over how to get my blog to post to several social…
