Day2Day - this weeks unmissable photos! LOL

Monday - severely lacking inspiration again so delved in my weird things box and found this! Liked the colours. Answers on a postcard please :)

Tuesday - nature provided the inspiration today - the sun caught the few remaining leaves on this tree and made them glow. Not sure I've caught the glow but I like it.
Wednesday - Paper bags for my first foray into the world of craft fairs. Minimum order was 1000 for the 2 smaller sizes and 500 for the big pink bags so 2500 bags for 2 craft fairs - gosh, I hope I sell something!
Thursday - I thought I'd been seeing a little wren at the bottom of the garden but it turns out to be this little brown bird instead - a dunnock or hedge sparrow. Not very sharp - long lens through glass at 7.30am but you get the idea :)

Friday - borrowed a small-ish table top display easel from an artist friend of mine. It will form part of my craft fair table display. I really like how my framed print looks on an easel - may have to splash out and get a couple more if I continue this craft fair lark.

Twitter-ing On ...

So it seems to be the latest fashion over on Etsy to join Twitter - the forums are full of twitter-this and twitter-that threads. They say that apart from being a bit of fun, it's also possible to do a bit of promotion over there so I caved in and joined. I added the widget to my blog too so if you have a peek over there on the right --->, you should see it. If you're on Twitter, drop in say Hi :)

I don't know how long I will last but I'll give it a go and see whether I like it or not. Can't ask for much more than that really can I?

Day2Day - Bit late again!

I've been fairly poorly this week so although I did manage to scrape together enough energy to take a shot or two, I just haven't had the will to actually blog them! So here goes, although it is Sunday and the next lot start tomorrow :)

Monday - put my back out late yesterday so curled up with painkillers and the tv today.

Tuesday - made it to the back door today! Looked up and saw this lovely leaf stuck to the roof of my verandah and snapped it. End of energy!
Wednesday - woke up with a sore throat, aches and a bit of a cough which was closely followed by a runny nose and complete lack of any energy or brainpower! I even forgot to reset the white balance for this one and just couldn't be bothered to re take it!

Thursday - still feeling fairly crap but spotted this chappie stuffing his face so grabbed the camera, swapped lenses and dashed back to catch him (that all sounds fairly energetic but it was more of a slow motion dash, you know?). I needn't have worried, he was still there, intent on clearing the seeds completely so none of the other birds in the neighbourhood could get some too.
Friday - still feeling listless and no inspiration either but I was sooooo bored of daytime TV. Grabbed this shot of some incense cones just to fill the spot really. Bought them a few weeks ago to try some smoke photos but haven't got around to it yet!
