An Evening at the Pageant

I had the most wonderful time tonight watching my Granddaughter on the stage of the Southern Oregon Miss USA pageant. She wasn’t a contestant since she’s only 8. They had each contestant paired with a young girl to escort them on cute!  I could tell she was nervous but she did a wonderful job and was really beautiful too. I guess you could say I was a very proud Nana tonight. I was in the Miss National Teenager pageant when I was 16 and this brought back so many wonderful memories for me. I’m sure my Granddaughter will remember this forever too. I wish I could share some pictures but I wasn’t allowed to take any with a flash.


Adventures in Photography

I’ve been trying to get the most out of this new camera and make my Jewelry really sparkle.  The Austrian crystals are beautiful so I use them alot in my Designs. Someday I’d like to have enough money to use the very best metals and gemstones. That day WILL come for me I just know it! I am eager to learn all I can about  Creating Jewelry and I now realize that includes photographing them.  

I like the way these photos turned out but I might use a different background next time. Maybe something a little darker would be better.

When one door closes another opens…just walk through and believe

I’ve found my true calling in life and I’m loving it! I can hardly wait to see what the next creation will become as I plunder through my stash of findings and treasures. Sophisticated’s what I love!
