I turned on the TV this morning and the news tried to high-jack my nice 'Wake-Up-mood'!...I was reminded that the Post Office is gonna be closing a lot of their convenient offices soon...not until April now, instead of mid-May...but still! Grrrr! Not nice!
Also, snow showers and icy roads are due in our area later today and early in the morning...*shaking my head*...Nooooooooo!!...NOT NICE!!!.....Also, there's a large house fire going on just a little ways down the road...and 3 people are missing that are known to live in the house! O_O
So, I needed a distraction...QUICK!...and something to say something 'nice' about!...I went over to Etsy's search bar and typed in 'distraction' ^_^ and look what popped up! (the header photo) I saw that beautiful blue and knew that this shop was definitely onto something! That really is a 'Sweet Distraction'! :-)
But then I saw the rest of her shop...theothermagdalene...and I have to say something 'Nice' about her!!...WOW!! She sure knows how to create!! Look at a few of the pieces in her shop!...
The profile in her Etsy shop says: "I started making jewelry to satisfy a need to work with my hands on a detail-oriented creative task. From there, these hands are slowly developing styles that run the gamut. I am self-taught and intend to keep it that way as I work toward even more difficult jewelry ventures. I enjoy the challenge of trial and error and practicing techniques on my own, either with the help of online tutorials, the Etsy forums, or just through ideas in my head...
...I try to never limit myself in the kinds of jewelry I make - the overarching theme is eccentricity. I make things as I learn them. So look through my items for whatever you're in the mood for. You'll probably find something..."
I say...Oh Yeah!....Nice!...If you're looking for color you can probably definitely find something here! :-)
And if you're looking for something to distract you from the news, how about this Honeyed Orange Crystal Necklace!.....
...Or this Red Rose Golden Necklace!...
Yes she does!!...have flowers I mean! ^_^ ...You knew I wouldn't be distracted too long without a flower, right?!!...So, are you watching that yucky news right now?! Or are you distracted too?! ^_^ ...Well, if you want to distract yourself some more here's some place nice to visit...it's her blog, HERE!
The only other thing that could distract me this much...besides flowers...is chocolate! ^_^
Yes I did!!!.....show them to you so you could be in a distracted drooling haze right along with me!! LOL....News?!....What news?!! ^_^ I don't want to say anything but nice things about that!!!...NICE!!! :-)
I'd like to say something else nice...about the sales in my shop the last couple of days...I am so happy that people are not only looking at my work, but 'throwing down the change' to buy it! These...HERE...are all gone now! I'm so appreciative! I think it's very nice!....And I want to encourage them to keep it up!! ^_^
Sorry for the distraction, but I just had to stop and say something nice today! When you do...it can make your whole day...or somebody else's...
I hope it makes your day! :-) Either that, or the knowledge that the red and white headband will be drawn tomorrow in the Giveaway! Enter now!....And Have a very 'NICE' day Everybody!! :-) Are you smiling?!
Reasons To Smile
I don't really need a reason,
to let out a great big grin;
But I do from time to time,
just to exercise my chin.
Sometimes I do it just to see
what reaction I will get,
in the places where I've gone,
and the people that I've met.
Sometimes it's just for me!
To amuse some silly thought;
Or to show just how excited
I have been at what I bought.
Sometimes a smile can change my mood,
when weather forecasts make me blue;
Or when I see a baby playing!
Oh yes! Oh Yes! I smile then too!
Truth is, I really don't need a reason.
Frowns just,frankly, aren't my style.
I could sit and write about it,
But even that would make me smile.
