Faded Glory

It's been very quiet on this blog. I hope you have not missed me too much. I just have not had much to say.

Now I don't even have the excuse of having to watch soccer games any more. Of course, I am very happy that Germany won the Soccer World Cup. It brought back sweet childhood memories... After all it has been a long long time since my country won this thing. I pretty much had to wait half of my life to see it happen once again. It seems so weird when you start to count your years in World Cup events. By the time the next one rolls around my baby boy will be off to college. Very odd.

Well, not too many folks around here care about soccer anyways. My daughter painted my nails in the colors of the German flag. It was fun. I had not painted my nails since my teenage years. Now they are all chipped, and it's time to take off that nail polish.

Other than celebrating the German soccer success I have been working on retaking a lot of the pictures in my etsy shop. Folks from my Etsy team told me that having a watermark was distracting from the beauty of my work. I also learned that it is not a good idea to take shots of dolls' faces looking down. I was told that it makes them look like they are ashamed or something. Poor babies! They are good kids, I swear!

So alas, I am working hard on bringing a fresh look to my shop. Please, feel free to let me know if you have any other suggestions.

Everybody loved the shots that Lindsey Bonnice, the professional photographer from Livesweetphotography took. Since my photos are not quite there yet I will leave you with some more of her great pictures. Some day I will get there...
