I had to take my photos with Mr. Sarah’s camera… I’ll need to dig out the users manual so I can figure out how to change the settings. The photos aren’t large or crisp enough to suit me. I prefer my Olympus relic, but the rechargeable batteries have died and I don’t have any AA’s in the house.
I was on the hunt for rechargeables a few weeks ago at Target. I have 15-minute rechargeables and was under the impression that the batteries have to be 15-minute rechargeables to work in the 15-minute charger. I don’t think that’s the case, after some research… but the guy at Target’s electronics counter had never heard of rechargeables that charged in 15 minutes. I mean, you’d think that a teenaged boy (or 20 something dude – it’s hard to tell, they all look the same to me these days) would have heard about and be glomming 15-minute rechargeable batteries. Turns out you can get those units at Walmart, for sure. Anyway. While I was at Target I think I found my new camera – the Canon Rebel T3. It will be a while before I can get one, as I need a new car and to pay my taxes and a deal with a pile of other things much more weighty before I can even think too seriously about that… I was quite impressed with the photo quality, even under the awful fluorescent lights.
So enough about all that… but while I have you here, I want to point you to Kate McKinnon’s new book, Contemporary Geometric Beadwork. Looks like she’s still taking pre-orders and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. My very first experience with beads was weaving seed beads on a loom, and I suspect if lampwork hadn’t come into my picture, seed beads would be my soulmate. Well, not that they aren’t one of them – you should see my collection of both Czech and Japanese. Oh Molly.
Anyway, gotta eat. I hope you guys enjoy the new beads! I may list some jewelry at some point over the next few days… I still have a few touches to put on first.
Thanks for looking!
