Trying Another Door

Since Flickr continues to be a problem, I’m trying Picasa’s web-based service, just for this post.  For those of you playing along at work and home, MJ is finding Yahoo painfully slow too, so it does seem to be a systemic issue, rather than this one poor, old computer of mine.

From November 2009

Well, that’s not so bad for my THIRD attempt to get a photo in there…  It’s embedded “medium”, just so you know.  (Okay, so I’ll know!!) 

I purchased those little cuties almost before I’d gotten into the Mistletoe Market shopping area, from Magical Monograms.   Can you have too many keyrings?

From November 2009

That’s one of the earrings I bought from Erin McDermott.  I spent a lot of time at her booth with a few friends, and I think all of us had trouble making selections.  I really like her disc necklaces too… 

So, those are my favorite purchases, but there was so much more there to choose from.   I’m really proud of the MM committee; they worked hard and fast to pull this together in just a few weeks really, and the results were fantastic!

Now, if it will EVER stop raining, I can get photos of some other stuff I need to share with you.  Maybe tomorrow?  And do let me know how this Picasa photo option works.  I’m finding it fiddly, and I didn’t even try to edit these photos…

Tell me about your weekend plans.  I have a couple of options tomorrow morning, but I do believe I’ll be staying at home and just taking a few deep breaths.  We do have a big ol’ family birthday dinner for MJ, and there’s a Creative Memories open house on Sunday that  I also think will fall by the wayside so that I can just chill at home for a change.  It’s time for me to recharge.

And I’ll be starting that process in a few minutes.  I’m looking forward to a fabulous lunch with some great women at The Shebeen!

    Oh I’m so glad you are starting your weekend early. Enjoy your lunch. We’ll teleconference you into ours!

    Love those little keyrings! They are just stinking cute. I would only need to find that end grimpy bit to make some – hmmmm.

    The jewelry – fantastic!

    My weekend – busy, busy – snoop shopping with the young 20s after work tonight. Tomorrow routine vet for the tall hounds, followed by a coffee and a walk with the dogs and hubby. Surprise 50th Birthday party – that will really be surprise since his birthday was weeks ago, and a wedding reception. Then Sunday should be very low key. 🙂 g

    Quiet weekend here. There is an agility trial that some friends are in, so if I feel like it, we may go for a few minutes. Other than that I want to sew and knit and lounge with my mutts.

    Yahoo has been a problem on my end, too. And Flickr just about caused me to toss my computer out the window on Wednesday. Grrr! I’ll be knitting this weekend, in between errands.

    Baking, craft fair for a couple of hours Saturday morning, parish wide Thanksgiving dinner Saturday evening, acolyte training on Sunday, and then another round in the boxing ring with the hat. Oh, and maybe some sewing.

    Well, you already know how my weekend is planned, UGH.
    Love the earrings!! 🙂

  7. I thik your pictures posted just fine. For the record, I don’t use any of those online picture thingy’s. I just up-load from my own computer, where I do all my tweaking before-hand. Enjoy the quiet, don’t get side-tracked!

    The pictures are fine here – actually loaded pretty fast on my dial-up connection.

    Lovely earrings – adorable key chains. And sounds like a great low key weekend for you and yours.

    I use Picasa. It’s far from perfect, but it’s worked so far these last three years.

  12. Kathy says:

    You snagged some great goodies there.
    The pics look great and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
