Today we seem to have another dry sunny day so I thought I'd post a couple of photos from around town....the photo of the bay shows where NOAA is building their new headquarters of their pacific fleet...the huge sandpile is supposed to be removed after the building is finished....sure is a LOT of sand!
The north and south jettys and then a shot south toward the yaquina head lighthouse....just wanted to remember a few days without rain and fog!
I've been neglecting my beadwork but going full speed with learning more and more about my computer...mostly I'm working on windows 7, so I can tell what all the laptop will do and then I'll go onto getting deeper into photoshop, which I've used a lot, but mostly just the simplest tools.
I know I'll get back into beading....just not sure when.



I finally got a start on the last bjp for last year and may have it finished soon. I'm also finding that I'm having a lot of difficulty making a decision about this year's pieces, so I decided to make 12 pin/pendant pieces, all in freeform shapes cut out from 3x3 inch squares. So the parameters will be 3 inches or less. I'm thinking I'll be using the sea as a theme...maybe each month will be inspired by a different tidepool or maybe just the sea in general. I may have a few more decisions to make...or not.
As soon as I get a bit more energy back, I'll be stopping at the other blogs to see how everyone else is getting along. Easy does it will be my motto this year...I hope the bjp folks remember to have fun with their pages!


Hello to 2011

Wishing each one of you an especially good year filled with peace and love and good health. It's definitely winter on the coast with the temps in the mid 40's but we've also been gifted with sunshine and blue skies....a great start to the new year.
