Site Under Construction

Well, kinda sorta.  If my blog page's layout or colors begin to look wonky to you, it is because I am in the tedious/annoying process of trying to convert this blog into a 3-column page.

I am definitely no HTML expert, so I am trying to read and understand online tutorials...they make it seem so easy, but when you finally try to do it yourself, it's a disaster.

As soon as I find a nice, easy way of doing it, I will definitely credit that person/s on this site!  More to come...

Never forget...

My heart goes out to all of those that lost a loved one this day, eight years ago.  September 11, 2001 is one of those days that we all touched all of us in such a profound way.

Do you remember where you were, or what you were doing that day?  I luckily didn't lose anyone, but still cried like a baby at all of the constant footage that continued that day and thereafter.  I remember being in shock that someone could organize something so evil against this country.

I was working in Boston at the time, and I recall most companies and buildings were evacuating, because they didn't know if all popular U.S. cities were going to be targeted.  It was a very scary day- I called my father and siblings who also worked in Boston just to check in on them. 

I really can't imagine the horror and shock that went through the minds of those families who lost someone they loved.  I am so fortunate that I have my health, and my family and friends are still with me.

As bad as things get in my life, I try to remain grateful for what I have, and who I have in my life.  I hope you do the same, and are able to get through this day with both grace and strength.

Long Live the Beatles!

To celebrate the remastered release of The Beatles music as well as the debut of "The Beatles Rockband" (both on 09/09/09-how cool is that date?!), I decided to have a little debut of my own...introducing the clay version of The Beatles, available on Etsy.  So much fun to make, hope you enjoy the picture!

Lanterns 'n Lace

I just finished creating a banner and avatar for my boyfriend's mother's site on Etsy.  She will be selling all of her vintage finds, as well as her own artwork!  I took a few photos at her house today and then came home and played with the layout.  What do you think?

Here is the link to her site, so you can view the banner...I am sure she will have some items in there very soon!
