Yes, I'm Still Here :)

Wow! It has been so long since I posted!!! Time just slips away. But, I am here and still doing jewelry related things.

After much thought, I decided to get my own website. Look in your address bar. You see www.blog.telaformosa.com THAT"S ME! YAY!!! It took me an entire day to do that.- well a little more because I had to wait for tech support. My blog now points to a subdomain on my TelaFormosa domain.

That wasn't the only thing that took forever. I'm learning as I go, so everything is taking longer than it should. If it weren't for Laura aka CookonStrike, I wouldn't be nearly as far along as I am. She has been a world of help!

I had a website by a different name back in the olden days, you know, way back in the naughts. Things were MUCH different then and what I remember of it does me no good, at all. There is something very satisfying about having your own little piece of the web- A piece you have absolute control over. Despite the work, I'm really happy to have my own domain.

I haven't been doing much in the way of making jewelry. I've done a few pieces, but nothing to write home about. Monday, however, I intend to do some wrapping. I have a whole box of rocks from a cabber to go through and pick some to keep and some to wrap for her. We're both very happy with the arrangement. It's exciting to get a box of rocks in the mail. It's like Christmas going through all the little treasures. One, in particular, is really calling my name and I can't wait to get the tools out.

That will be my brief time out for wrapping and then back to the website. I pretty much have the layout down except for some tweaks. Now, I am loading up my store. I will be doing something new, though. I think I will sell some gems and cabs that I know I'll never use. Just because they don't talk to me doesn't mean they won't talk to someone else. But, they will have to go to the back of the line to be photographed. The camera has a very long cue because I have decided to reshoot a lot of pieces as I go. So, you see why this has been so all consuming.

Before too long, I'll be back to my regular routine. Be well and be happy :)

  2. Hey Tela! So happy you are still here. Congratulations on the new web site. It is a big step yet a very good one. I am excited to hear you will one day be selling some cabs. Looking forward to the next wrap!

    Did I miss your contest winner??

    1. Thank you! Yup, it's a big step alright, but one I'm glad I took. Don't know how well it will work for me, but I'm glad I did it.

      Yes, I think you missed it. Joyce had, by far, the most entries. The contest format had some bugs, so I don't think I'll use that format again, but I'm sure I'll run something nice in the future. Something simpler. Live and learn. :)

    1. Thank you, Kate. :) I miss you and all my friends. This is how I am when I am involved in a project, though. I dive in, fully immersed and emerge when finished-- dripping wet and gasping for air. LOL!
