Upcoming...

I redid some of my photos yesterday, using the white balance adjustment. What a difference. Embarrassing I didn't do this sooner! This is the exact same pendant and the exact same background paper. The one on the left looks fine if you don't know that the background is supposed to be the vibrant mossy green that you see on the right. The pendant colours look warmer too and just a little more bright.

I decided to put some items on sale in my Etsy shop, to keep my stock rolling. These items are marked down by 20%! I'll be having a Mother's Day sale starting this week-end too, as well as a give-away for my blog readers!

Lots happening this week, and the coffee tastes particularly good this morning...

Thanks to everyone who wrote to me or commented on my Friday post, regarding my mom. I hope that wasn't too "out there" and uncomfortable to read; it might have been a rather selfish thing to do, since it was kind of like a mini-therapy to get it out of my system, but I really do feel different.

My heartfelt appreciation to you all

hi, I've been catching up with your posts, I'm glad you spoke to your sister after your one on Friday, and that you are feeling a bit better. That picture of your mum is great.

Good luck with the press conference, how exciting! I hope it goes really well

Had you not done a side by side I never would have know the true colors of that pendant. Now I am off to play with my camera functions!
The pendant looks great.

Just wandered off to read your friday post, and I must say that I think it's wonderful you had the time you did, rather than loosing her quickly and feeling regret.

Hunney, we can only all do the best we can and i'm sure your mom is resting now, knowing that you've given all you had to love and care for her. Sometimes it takes the worst things to bring out the best in us, but we learn and we live and we carry on, and we love more and live more because of it. ♥

On a happy note... Don't forget to stop by my blog and enter to win some Etsy goodies... if you haven't already!
:D

Isn't it funny what a background can do? Looks great.
I think your Friday blog was wonderful and glad you shared it with everyone..If it gave you some relief, it was even better.
