Nice Surprise

I woke up this morning with, what could be described as, a challenging attitude.
Maybe it is the time of year, that dreary between seasons time of year.
Maybe it's the lack of sunshine and I have come down with SAD.

Maybe it's the fact that I fought with my aged camera for 3 hours last night and only have about a half dozen usable shots for posting on Etsy.

(OH SO looking forward to more struggling here shortly. YEA!)

Then of course, it didn't help that I had to drive to Anchorage TWICE today for parts. Actually, to be completely accurate, I had to drive to Anchorage once for the wrong part, then a second time for the right part. I really HATE driving in Anchorage. It's very congested and half of the drivers seem to be late for something and the other half seem to think it is perfectly acceptable to make a right hand turn from the left hand lane, on a whim. These trips were in addition to my regular commute which is 45 miles one way in the opposite direction from Anchorage (away from Anch. is good :)

OK... I have plenty of whine.... Now where did that cheese go?

I did have a bright spot to my day

This arrived in the mail today!
I won this in a drawing in the OWOH blog event from

Nicole Valentine

You can check out some of her gorgeous beads here.

The necklace is way prettier in person, the picture isn't great, but at least my white balance didn't go psycho like last night. Maybe there is hope for my photo session tonight. ☺

I truly believe that we all, at least to a small extent, can create our own problems. We can also create some of the "Good" things that happen in our lives.

So, I am going to spend the rest of my evening taking the best pictures I can, with my trusty, psycho dinosaur camera, and I am going to think happy thoughts and create a good tomorrow =)


  1. The necklace is quite lovely! Congratulations on receiving such a pretty gift - Nicole is quite talented. Good luck with the camera...I've been there, so I know exactly how you feel! :)

  2. Congrats! That is one cool necklace. I remember seeing on my rounds and thinking I'd love to win it.

    What is it with these cameras lately? Are they revolting? My white balance has been off, too!

  3. All I can say is, Thank God for Photo Shop! ☺
