Uploading this to etsy (shameless self-promotion: http://www.etsy.com/listing/73178509/bright-as-a-button-necklace ), bonus earrings and all, meant that I've met all three of my New Year's resolutions for the fourth month running. That's some kind of record or something.

My first photos came out badly as the light wasn't wonderful and, as I discovered some time later, my camera was set to ISO 1600 for no good reason whatsoever. I had to re-take these under artificial lighting. I used my craft light as it gives a more accurate colour and used several reference items in the pictures (some later cropped out) to ensure that the colours were accurate. I prefer using no colour editing, but given insufficient light it's not really going to work. And to wait for tomorrow was to fail in meeting my resolution. And that just wouldn't do.

I should be faster at meeting that particular one next month as I have a few things ready to go that I'll wait for natural light to photograph.

Sure enough, I've readied the parts for another baby ball. All of a sudden so very many people are having children!

At the end of the month I can report back on my New Year's Resolutions
1- 4 geocaches per month. Achieved several times over.
2- at least 1 new etsy listing per month. Achieved with more items ready to go
3- 1 letter/parcel per month - written if not sent. Want to step this one up next month.

So one month down,eleven to go...

Two of the lovely people I spent New Year's Eve with :D

We had fun with glow sticks, amongst other things.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2011 treats everyone very well :)

I know that people's opinions on New Year's Resolutions vary, but I have set myself four

1- Write a letter to a friend at least once every month
2- List a handcrafted item for sale online at least once a month
3- Find at least four geocaches every month
4- Continue to post my photo a day until I complete the 365 days ... and beyond?
