August Mid-month Goal Checkup

Testing, testing, is this mike on? 😉 This week has been crazy busy with lots of online stuff. It’s amazing that at some point all the time spend blogging, commenting, twittering, etc… starts to pay off. I started this month hoping that i could send a couple of shout outs to a blog or two in hopes of a mention, and lo and behold, I got a bunch…plus a request that I re-write my photography info with more detail in a 2 part article for Craft Nouveau! WooHoo! Of course, this means I have to write it – somehow it’s harder to do that than the endless blather on this here blog!

I also spent some time in a downwardly spiralling funk, completely overwhelmed with all the the things I want to accomplish before I go back to school. I had scheduled a lunch date with an old friend who was in S. CA in Temecula, about a 90 minute drive from here on Friday, and I almost cancelled it. But, I didn’t, had a great time and felt much better on Saturday. So I was reminded that I’m not Super Woman, I need to take a break once in awhile! So…I grabbed my hubby and we ran out for a quick sushi dinner & actually went to see the theater and saw Julia & Julie. It was great, Meryl Streep was fantastic, the movie struck a bunch of chords with me (don’t letting blogging & the internet consume your life was a biggie. Another was to try to live life with gusto!) And then, I was able to go back upstairs at 10 PM and photograph 12 scarves – this was the 1st time I tried to photograph my light (5mm) habotai scarves, and I think my new setup is working fabulously. Can you tell that this scarf:

Habotai-Tiger-Lily-01 Habotai-Tiger-Lily-04 Habotai-Tiger-Lily-07

has a different weight and texture than these?
