Thank you guys so much for all your wonderful feedback.
No, processing high-resolution photo files is a pain in the ass. It's 10x easier to take and edit and use small pictures, which are good enough for the web but for whatever reason when printed in book form become crap. Though I guess I could submit a book proposal based on these and let the publisher's people worry about pictures... hmmm.... that's quite an idea...
You guys don't know how awesome it's been to be back in the studio! There are so many glorious things there. I can't even believe the treasures so many of you have sent and even that I was able to find on line and in Uruguay. Sigh...
neshumasaid:They are the best combined investment that I’ve made in a long time.
You don't know how awesome it is for me to hear that. That is so so so wonderful.
(Ingredients: This necklace has the eye from Germany and a tiny container as it's bezel. The long bit under it is actually a little case. Maybe a needle case? And both ends are mother of pearl. Even linked as it is it still can be opened and closed. Also a druzy shield shaped agate pendant.)
(Ingredients: This ceramic pendant I got ages ago from potterygirl1 then foiled and finally was able to use. Another German glass eve and antique African beads from BeesOnPie, as well as the aquamarines she sent and the teeny clay ones she made herself. Oh and the chain is from an old lamp pull.)

(Ingredients: Crystal tube w/druzy bottom from Uruguay, wheel pulley thing from Germany... I forgot her name! Elstred? I'm too tired to find the link... Ear connector from Jewel Identity and faceted iridescents from Grubbi. No links, sorry... doggy wants a walk and I'm rushed.)
So I spent the last 2 days with half a haircut. I got tired after the left half. Basically half my hair was layered. No one noticed. My hair is so thick a family of mice could move in and you wouldn't know. But it's fixed now and that's why the second shower, see? And I re-discovered the reason people tend to cut their hair (if they cut their own hair at all) in front of mirrors instead of holding their head upside-down over the toilet. Yes, it did give me a good head rush.
Also, my mom came home from taking care of my nephew and niece. She told me that at one point
I'm happy you all are having fun with the tutes. Hey, if any links don't work, I fixed them up and they should work now. From which you can deduce that you can bookmark and re-access the tutes at that site. you don't have to download it...
