stuff

getting some newer things done mostly birds right now. been considering making some of the birds and animal things i make into just more complex shadow boxes, moving sort of paintings. I love Audubon prints and id also like to do my own versions of than at an appropriate scale. Also other things like prints. Not really stuff to put on the wall but say mouse pads and the like. practical items with some of my not sucky photos on them. not everyone has a space on the wall for prints. Don't know if i'll bring this stuff to show but it'd be a way to make something that has more purpose than being shiney :P

recently it's been interesting still being a part of etsy(mostly out of necessity). not for any fun of course but watching the melt down of drama that would make another fabulous encyclopedia dramatica entry. etsy pretty much remains completely tone deaf to their users over every single large issue that comes up. they dont seem to have a grasp on on the concept there are even any problems. there's about half a dozen links i could place with all the drama.. lets share annnywayys because it's unbelievable and partly funny and will probably make anyone rage/quit etsy. from the beginning 1. http://www.regretsy.com/2012/04/21/the-etsy-featured

Such wonderful ideas! Very ingenious and excellently made jewelry! Clap  I've saved up so many old computer parts over the years that I just might have to give something like this a bash :) (Smile)  I look forward to seeing your future pieces!
Wow, I love your jewelry. I'm glad I found it, cuz as a computer person I would wear the heck out of it. Once again, amazing work!
