And life goes on.  
 In keeping with, well, keeping to a schedule, I'm going to try to do my usual read LJ/post thing every day.  
Yesterday, I admit I didn't do much.  I cut out some patterns in preparation for costuming.  I played some Mass Effect (preparing for the release of ME2 soon, not that I'll be buying it right away, more's the pity.)  Today, I worked on jewelry, and followed up with the unemployment claim I filed.  Turns out, I'll be taking a $600 per month hit to what I used to make.  *winces*  That's a lot of money to suddenly not have coming in.  And apparently, the Unemployment office is backed up, so who knows when I'll get my first check.  Of course, Oregon has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country.  *sigh*

In the meantime, I'm watching Babylon 5 for the first time.  A friend has been trying to get me to watch it for over a year, and now I finally have the opportunity to do it, and get her season boxed sets back to her. :)   It was hard to get into it at first, but I'm on episode 8 or so of S1 now, and it's keeping me entertained.  

No news from the old job, not that I expected any right away.  In the meantime, I'll just keep writing and making jewelry.  Once Nemesis is done, I'll look further into some freelancing.  I need to do something the help make up the money I'm suddenly not earning.  It's been a long time since I had to worry about having enough money for things like groceries.  I don't much like it.  

In any case, here's some pretty photos for you of a recent custom order.  If you've been waffling about ordering something from me, now would be a good time - no waiting!  :D

A labradorite cocktail ring.  Here's a side view:

If you're interested, here's the listing for a ring like this one in my Etsy store.

Sadly, I don't wear jewelry or I'd totally order something from you.:) But wait...what kind of earrings do you make? My mom loves bright, dangly earrings (she's a children's librarian, after all), and Mother's Day will be here soon...

Anyway, it's good to see you accomplishing things again. Yes, I count working on a costume as accomplishing things. And yay for more Nemesis!

I make all kinds of earrings, and I love dangly, colorful things. :)

Here, scroll through my sold items to get an idea. http://www.etsy.com/shop_sold.php?user_id=5039436

Oh, and if she has favorite colors or ones she wears often, I probably have a stone or stones to match! :D

As my husband said, when I started watching B5 after he'd seen the whole thing through... "You have no idea...."

And quoting from B5: "And so it begins...."
