...Or something like that. 

All my jewelry items on this account are on the move! They're heading over to my new jewelry-only account katscreations08, and will no longer be updated here. Likewise, my photography will one day move to another account, leaving this one dedicated solely to fandom interests :)

11 Facts:
1. I'm still hopelessly addicted to Stargate SG-1, even if there hasn't been any new official content in a while... BUT! Big Finish Audio is taking pre-orders for new Stargate audio dramas starring Michael Shanks, Claudia Black, and Cliff Simon :drool:
2. I'm the youngest of eight children
3. I'm a bisexual godless liberal... from the Bible Belt XD
4. Five years after graduating high school, I finally went to college, finished an associate's degree in web development, and am working on my bachelor's degree in graphic design. I've already finished all my coursework for my minor in computer science :p
5. I'm a gamer geek, but only for single-player games (no MMOs). I love RPGs in general, but especially FPS RPGs like Fallouts 3 & New Vegas, the Mass Effect series, and the Elder Scrolls series. I build my own computers to feed my addiction XD
6. I think orange tabbies are AWESOME :3
7. My profile says I'm the wearer of many hats, but it's only metaphorical... I have a favorite ballcap for golf and a few different knit caps to match my winter coats, but that's about it for hats.
8. I collect video game soundtracks, but only from games I've beaten. This includes Bioshock, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls, Titan Quest, Jade Empire, Halo, Witcher, and a few others.
9. I have never played Portal, let alone Portal 2. I know, I know: major loss of geek cred
10. I do not own any Apple products (i.e. Mac, iPod, iPhone, etc.)
11. I have made procrastination an art form.

Tharuial-Eledh's Questions:
1. What's your favorite book and why? Current fav is Richard Dawkins' "The Magic of Realty"... so colorful and pretty and full of no-nonsense answers to questions people have about life, the universe, and everything in it... and none of those answers is '42'.
I could never pick an all-time favorite, though.
2. Why was Roku afraid of Shichi? *blink* Who and who?
3. If you could only ever go to one place (Other than your home), where would you go? A fully-modernized cabin in the deep deep woods. XD
4. If there was a zombie apocalypse and you could only save one person/thing what would it be? Myself.
5. Minecraft or Terraria? Minecraft! Creepers gonna creep. (Never heard of the other one.)
6. What do you think of Tobuscus? *checks link* WTF?!! Ritalin, dude... srsly.
7. Cats, dogs or Flying Lemurs? Cats, of course. Tressyms would be even better.
8. Am I failing at coming up with questions so far? :D Umm... no. Wait... yes. Definitely yes. XD
9. How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood? Depends on the wood in question... a hard wood like oak or a softer one like pine? :p
10. Rain or Snow? Rain if the weather's warm; snow if it's cold. Little is more depressing than rain on a cold day.
11. What does RPG mean to you? Losing hours and days immersed in another world XD

My Questions:
1. If you're a writer, what's your favorite thing you've ever written? If an artist, your favorite art work of your own creation?
2. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being "meh" and 10 being "RAGEFACE", how strongly does poor grammar affect you?
3. Without using attractiveness as the sole determining factor, who's your favorite actor and/or actress and why?
4. What's your favorite musical act/movie/TV show no one else ever seems to have heard of or seen?
5. Favorite pizza topping(s)?
6. Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello, or Raphael?
7. Ninjas, pirates, or zombies?
8. What other languages (if any) do you know apart from English?
9. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
10. Android, Blackberry, iOS, Windows Mobile, or other?
11. Look to your right and name the title and author of the first book you see. (If no books to your right, look to the left... and if none to the left, look ahead... none ahead, look behind you... none behind you, go to the bookstore and get yourself something to read!!)

I finally began putting some of my jewelry up on Etsy.  More will be added as I assemble more stock!
Okey-doke, my many and varied followers, what brought you to me?  My cat and/or nature photography?  My jewelry?  My Stargate art?

I don't have everything up on there yet, but it's a good start :)
I'm in the process of updating the photos of my jewelry pieces, now that I have a better camera than the one with which all images were initially taken.  That, and I have a softbox.  And a jewelry bust.  And photographers' spots.  And a tripod.  And...

There will be no updates to any of my one-of-a-kind pieces, though, as they have all been sold and are no longer in my possession.
Well, gang, I decided to go ahead and get another camera, even though I can't afford a digital SLR yet.  After playing with it in-store for about 20 minutes, I settled on a Nikon CoolPix L110!

New floral photography with spiffy new camera to follow... eventually ;)
So, I'm thinking of getting a new camera.  Yeah, I love the photos I take with the one I have now, because it has a spectacular lens and great manual focus tuning, but let's consider the rest of the camera for a few moments:

1) 6 years old
2) uses Compact Flash memory cards
3) only 3.2 MP (2048 x 1536 rez)
4) has only one flash setting: blinding
5) slower than crap
6) battery hog
7) limited flexibility (can't modify shutter speed, etc.)
8) maximum 3x zoom (digital zoom is worthless, so I don't use it)

I want to get a digital SLR, but I'm torn between a Canon and a Nikon.  I have my dad's old 35mm Nikon SLR, and I'm curious if anyone has ever successfully used traditional SLR lenses with a digital camera.

So... what camera would YOU recommend?
And I even joined two clubs!

Photography is something I do for fun.  I don't expect I'll ever make any money at it, but as long as I have a camera, I'll be taking pictures!  (Hey... anything to keep me BEHIND the lens and not in FRONT of it!)
