Copper: It's In Our Blood (JCUIN February)

JCUIN February CollectionUntil recently, I'd never really considered copper, I didn't think I liked how it looked, it was difficult to photograph flatteringly, and there wasn't much in the way of availability.

Pshew! Finally Fall!

Wow, it was a crazy summer, so busy it feels like it just got away from me,  I love fall though, even if it is right before winter. Not that I hate winter, I just HATE driving in the snow. And this Buffalo, after all. We got lucky last year, I don't think there was ever more than 6 inches at a time on the ground, and it never lasted more than like a week. I was loving it, but my Fiancé wasn't so happy; no plowing.So I finally got all of the PussyFoot Studios items re-photographed, I found a button on my camera that lets you take a picture of something white and automatically adjusts the white balance for you! Miracle! Everything in my h... » Read More

Colors of the Wind

Namaste!Pshew!  The heat finally broke here, it's only 80 today, but it feels nice!Haven't wanted to do much all week, but I finally got a few of the Colors of the Wind necklaces photo'd and listed.
