Sunday's I Heart Macro!

Last Sunday, I was out of town with my daughter and her fiance making arrangements for their wedding so I missed posting a picture.  But here we go again and my pic is ready and posted.

"When Trees Dream" by MaryL

Please check out the art and blog of MaryL. at Try, Try Again....!  Be sure to read her story on the "Getting Back Up" page of her blog.  She is an amazing artist with so much creativity and tenacity.  I was lucky enough to win one of her mini-books and each page is fabulous.  The book was in my mail when I got back from the weekend and it is just the cutest thing ever.  Thanks Mary!

Mary sells the books on her blog for less than some greeting cards.  I'm thinking I would like to use some of these to send out as greetings or to tuck in to a letter.  (Yes, we all still love to receive letters.) 

Do something creative today!

New Listing in the Etsy Shop

Do you need a new, classic bracelet that will coordinate with a variety of outfits?  Then check out my latest listing on Etsy.

This bracelet looks good with a pair of jeans and also with that little black dress.  It will quickly become a go-to accessory. 

And don't you just love the use of my hand model?  If only she lived a little closer so she could do more modeling.  This model is recently engaged and has some gorgeous bling on her left hand.  They are planning an August wedding and several of us accompanied them to the wedding venue this past weekend to finalize some of the plans.  It is becoming real now.  Maybe some pictures next time of the planning sessions without giving any details away.

New Earrings in the Shop

Here are some new earrings just put in the shop - a little summery yellow-orange and some lime-green and black.  Slowly but surely I am getting items listed. 

Then I need to make new business cards, clean the studio, take more photos, make more beads and the list goes on.  And I just got a call for a custom chain maille bracelet.  Back to work.

Happy Mother's Day!

To all the mothers, grandmothers, mothers-to-be, stepmothers, godmothers, adopted mothers, and just-like-a-mothers - Happy Mother's Day to you! 

And a big thank you to my daughter and son for these lovely flowers,

and the clever note attached by my son (ever the aspiring comedian).

Dearest Mother,
Thine are my mother and thine are my parental unit.  Thineth motherhood be in the parental unit forever and within thee.
Lovest always your kinfolk, Lord Ryan & Jester Megan

And that is why I am smiling (and laughing) today!

I Heart Macro with Studio Waterstone

I heart macro with Studio Waterstone.  I think I have finally figured out how to take part in this close up photography activity.  Hop on over to her blog and check it out.  And then enter your close up or macro shot.  Here is my first shot:

Then I figured out that I had linked back to Lori's blog instead of mine so I entered another one.  You can see each little "hair" on the dandelion.  Isn't that amazing?

New Etsy Shop Finally!

I finally took the plunge and opened my Etsy shop.  You can find my shop here at Dillman's Diversions.  I am busy getting my jewelry and beads listed.  Who knew how many pictures are needed?  Whew!  And not only the number of pictures, but they need to be good ones.  And then there are the descriptions to write.  But I am jumping in and getting started.  This is my first item:

Turquoise and Ivory
Lampwork Bead Earrings
with Sterling Silver Findings and Dangles

Check out the shop and let me know what you think!  If anyone is using Etsy and has essential advice for beginners, please pass it on to me.

Thanks for visiting,
