Sparkle * Flash * Wink

Oh, the Swarovskis are here! They are so gorgeous and tiny and fabulous and I want to keep them all for myself! Thousands of little crystal goodness! Alas, that’s not the plan. I will share. I’m nice that way.

Entertainment should abound later this morning when I try to capture their brilliant sparkle in photos to post them on Etsy. Trying to photograph Swarovski crystals is always an exercise in frustration – they look so much better in person! But I’ll try to do right by them. We’ll see. I haven’t grabbed my brother’s light tent yet, but since I’m babysitting Alexis for a few hours Friday morning, I’ll have the chance to get it then.

I also ordered more custom colors yesterday. It takes 2-4 weeks for production of them, so I’m trying to sneak the new ones in before I have to reorder from this first batch. Since it’s a new thing for me, figuring out the ordering/reordering process and taking into account the production lag is going to be a learning process.

Mom and I are slowly but surely chasing the neighbors away. Last week the house next door to us went up for sale, and then last night we took the dogs for a walk and discovered the house in back of us is for sale too. That one even has the identical floor plan to our house, which we love so much. I teased Mom that I should buy it and we’ll rip down the back fence so the dogs and cats can have full access. Identical houses, back-to-back. Now that would be weird! But convenient…

Photos later today as I have them. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
