Weekend Update

This past weekend was a nice whirlwind with many accomplishments. Some of my husband's family were in town and it was nice to visit with them. Saw Dear John (pretty good, cute) and did some awesome shopping on a rainy day - Old Navy's Item of the Week is such a good deal. Check out Old Navy Weekly, they post it every week.

Also! I had a jewelry order courtesy of Etsy on Sunday (so excited!).

Oh, and in other news, plans are officially underway for Operation Europe. I mean, we had decided but no $$$ was involved it. Boy is it now! As of this weekend, cruise out there, 1/2 of accommodations, and one overnight train are booked. There is still a lot more left though but I am loving researching it. Tripadvisor and Google Maps Street View are my favorite sites. I am practically drooling over all of the sites I looked up via Street View. I took a pretour of Paris - what! I couldn't resist.

Current itinerary you ask? 7 weeks of...
CA > Texas > Cruise to Barcelona > London > Paris > Munich, Germany > Salzburg, Austria > Venice > Florence > Cinque Terre, Italy > Rome > Athens > Nafplio > Rome > JFK > LAX> Sleep for a week

Anyone been to any of these lovely places? Pointers? Advice? Recs? I'm all ears.

Also also also

This last week has been so crazy - actually, this whole year so far!

I was absolutely flabbergasted that I had 5 jewelry orders this past week! That is my busiest week yet and I am soooo appreciative of all my customers. Thank you!

I got a little busy and made some new bracelets and rings the last couple days. After a small photo shoot - I posted these lovelies tonight. Give them a visit if you like!





 ALSO! I am finally diving into my next project - making prints of my paintings. Step one - read my camera's manual so I can take good quality photos of my paintings. This is what my little point and shoot gave me. 

Yea, I really need to figure it out. I mean it looks okay but no great quality prints will come from it. I don't know about you but camera manuals, or manuals in general, give me migraines. I have a feeling Step one is going to take awhile. 

ALSO ALSO! Hubby and I are seriously (and I mean seriously) thinking of jumping the pond. That's right - tripping out to Europe. This has been my dream since...forever. Yup, "Paris" might have been my first word, I don't know, I'll ask my mom.I just can't make myself push that button to start booking it. I'll keep you posted.
