New Acronym for Bloggers?

P.S.I.A.  This officially stands for the Professional Ski Instructors of America.  Years ago, my daughter went through their training and testing, and during the test, she and another girl were asked what P.S.I.A. stands for - the other girl thought about it and came up with "Please stop in... anytime"!  Wrong answer for her, but what a nice invitation for a blog!  Just wondering if it will catch on! Hmmmm...

I had to spend the day with appointments, so sorry for the token appearance.  I have a couple of photos of jewelry, though, and hope it will interest you.  The first artist lampwork beads I used were all made by Cathie Roberts,  and I have a supply to be coveted. Before I had a blog, Cathie always featured any of my jewelry with her beads on her blog,
This is the first time I added images, another new skill not quite mastered.  I know you'll be kind because I am constantly battling sleep-deprivation. But, remember, PSIA!

Just to Keep Things Going....

What a difference a day makes!  Yesterday I was new and nervous, but the encouragement came showering in and made me feel right at home :)  A whole new social experience made possible by the upside of technology.  It's especially amazing to people of "my age" .  For example, I know it wasn't called technology back then, but my first experience on the phone was to crank the handle and say to the live operator, "Green 3-5", my Grandmother's number!  Okay, my father raised mink and we didn't live in town.  Dial phones came soon after.  My hubs just said I'm dating myself!  I am what I am and some of you will kindly relate!  Now here's what you came for, jewelry!

A Soft Opening

Another newbie enters the wide world of blogging!  I have published this in its incomplete state in hopes of "hands-on" assistance, and I do mean, "first you click here, then....."!  So don't feel like you're talking down to me.  I will try to eventually be a worthy member of the wonderful community of jewelry bloggers.    I really want to keep this template, but the font for the description is too light for the photo.  Love the title!  But when i select to place the description below the header, then the title disappears!  I'm thinking of typing it again, under the picture anyway. So any input will be appreciated.  TIA! (Thanks in Advance - I read some of Tara Frey's "Blogging for Bliss", on loan from Erin Prais-Hintz), and being reviewd on Art Bead Scene today.
