I got aquamarine, tourmaline, amethyst and yellow topaz today. Now I just need to do a little target practice (the only thing hurt during shooting is my husband's ego since I'm a better shot) and drilling so I'll be able to use my new stones.
I've seen a few blogs lately with top music picks, so I figured I'd be a copycat and share some of my current favorite music in the form of mp3's so you could steal it if you wished, but my dang FTP client isn't working like it should, so I could only upload one song! Hopefully I can get them on here tomorrow.
I got a super sweet package today from my friend Christin, and I can't wait to work on projects that incorporate some of these little treasures! I've never actually met Christin in person, but we've gotten to know each other really well through Etsy and Facebook, and I have to say, no matter what terrible things people may say about the internet, I've met some of the sweetest people on here that I wouldn't have had the pleasure of getting to know otherwise.I saw a picture of her sister wearing a bird pendant (in the first photo), so she made me my very own, but the best and most special piece of all is the turtle necklace. We share a deep love of turtles and run through traffic like maniacs to save them. She even got in some trouble once when her car was blocking traffic while she tried to help a sea turtle (bigger than her) out of the road!
Her package today made me think of something we, as bloggers and internet friends, could do for one another. I'm not going to spill the beans just yet because this post is already LONG enough, but I promise I'll let you in on my little idea tomorrow! Chris will be gone all morning, afternoon, and part of the night, so I'll have plenty of time to clean, blog, and jump on the trampoline! Come back then!
One last thing. Brandi at mucho mucho bueno bueno is having a pretty awesome giveaway, so go visit her blog and enter, or don't since I want to win it!
