Yoohoo! Here I Am!

Autumn Splendor

Really, don’t send out a posse for me! Since the return of my trip, I’ve been rushing around like mad, trying to get everything I need finished, prior to my surgery next Wednesday! On top of that, my computer is giving me even more grief.. I have to reboot almost every 10 minutes.. it’s near impossible to get anything done.

I am back to having over 700 emails that need replies, I’m slowly working my way through them all, if I haven’t’ gotten to it yet — I promise I will soon.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I won’t ever be able to write a blog entry daily, time most likely will never permit that…so my new goal is to post on it daily, even if it’s a photograph I’ve taken, or something else I’d like to highlight.. and still having my longer, more personal entries as I can. Sure beats not posting at all eh?

With all that being said.. here’s my version, of a quick, mini update, to all that’s been happening in my world recently.

 Treasures of the Heart

My artwork is featured on EBSQ’s main page right now! I think it will be all month long as well… how amazing is that! In the vast sea of talent there.. somehow, my piece was found & chosen! You should have seen the look on my face yesterday when I realized it!

Speaking of being featured.. I’m honored that my blog has been chosen as the featured Indie blog of the month at Indie-O-Rama! Have you seen this new site yet? It’s a wonderful new site — you won’t be disappointed as you browse around.. go on, look already!

 Paradise Indeed

I had a fabulous time on my short trip to Paradise Island — it is SPECTACULAR there. (I’m so grateful this was all expenses paid though! It’s expensive!) I urge you, to save, and plan a trip to Atlantis at least once in your lifetime.. trust me, you won’t regret it. I uploaded some photos of it here, come see! I’ll be adding more soon.

 Autumn Glory

My old camera basically died, I broke down and got a new one yesterday… a Canon Powershot A630, so far so good! I’ve really enjoyed taking photos with it! Here’s a few of my favorites so far. Photography is a fantastic creative outlet for me, when time doesn’t permit me to get in my art studio! I’d encourage everyone to try it — you’ll learn to retrain your eye, and how you see things .. which has an amazing effect within your artwork.

News on My Sites..

I think I’m breaking down, and hiring someone to finish The Altered Abbey, until my computer starts being agreeable.. I just can’t make headway on it. It’s primarily, the shopping cart I need help with – Oscommerce to be exact.. any of y’all do this? Drop me a line if you do!

In the meantime, keep checking Covet Me for some awesome supplies — I’ll have some great Christmas Ornaments up soon!

Try It Tuesdays will be back up & running after I’m healed form my surgery :-) Keep sending me tutorials.. the more I have upfront, the easier it will be for me to keep it up weekly –I’m doing them up ahead of time! This will be great exposure for anyone who participates!

I am going to be updating the links on my blog here.. MUCH needed revamp. If I dont’ have your link up, please drop me a line.. and I’ll add it in as well :-)

Whew.. that was a mouthful! And yet, I’m sure I forgot something!

Have a beautiful autumn day! -Chrysti
