Some of the stuff that is going on

These new earrings look so great on. If I may say so myself. I am planning to list them at my Etsy Shop that I started last week. Still only one item there. But I need some more photos of the things I want to sell. (Thank you Lorelei for your great advice!) Some things in my life moves very slowly, but I will get there in the end. Did a whole big photo session the other day (see photo below), with jewellery on, but none of those turned out good, so they all need to be retaken. Big sigh!

Materials in the "GreenGreenGreen & Petal Earrings" are:
Green glass beads from Happy Mango Beads
Chestnut Patinated petal links from MissFickleMedia
Antiqued copper earstuds
Antiqued copper eyepins
Antiqued copper jumprings

This action shot from the photo session is basically the only photo that turned out OK.
From my scetchbook. Idea for the july ABS challenge. Also something in pipeline. Gosh - there are so many things I want to do. Too little energy and capacity for me though, with that b*y decease I have. It sucks really! I get around doing or finishing less than 50% of my ideas or plans. Maybe even as little as 10%. I have never calculated. But this idea I SHALL complete. Because I believe it will be something really good and exciting, and I am challenging myself to try new things. And I love that.

Thank you! Mark took all the photos. And I guess he thought it was nice to take some of me when I was preparing.

Love these! ANd I also love to see your sketchbook - I never sketch things as with my drawing skills I fear it would be more of a hinderance than a help but others' are beautiful.
