Abundance Totem

I need to update more frequently! Sorry about that. Is there some easier process than the eight-million-steps that I need to do to get things from my camera to blogger?

Anyway. I made this Abundance totem several years ago now, when I discovered the Connecticut quarter. That's it, on her abdomen, that big, beautiful tree.

This is to remind me that Abundance comes in many forms.

And also, that every time I start a long bead embroidery project, by the end I swear I will never do another one.

Your abundance beady is beautiful! You do gorgeous work and you must be proud of all you do, otherwise it would show in your workmanship! I hear you on getting the pics. posted to blogger, it's such a process. However, keep it up, love seeing your work! ;O)

Found your blog through Megan Noel´s one today.

Yes, of course I know a possibility to get pictures blogged muuuuch easier and faster than with blogger. The free and open source Blog- software Movable type is the solution.
With either image::magick or NetPBN installed and the gorgeous BetterFileUploader plugin its as easy as getting the pictures out of your camera into your computer, open the blogging screen in your browser, select "BetterFileUploader", it shows what picture you have choosen, generates a thumbnail the size you want it to have- automaticly, gives you the possibility to add descriptions and tags and then you can directly from the uploaded- screen make it open a new entry and post the HTML code with the thumbnails (and links to the corresponding big popup- pictures if you want) right into the entry. You can then just add the text, save and publish. And its really faster now compared to the previous versions of MT. And the biggest advantage besides being add- free is that you can customnize absolutely everything just as you like it.
My blog is working with the very old version 3.31 of MT: http://www.amichan.de/elisablog but my boyfriend has the latest Movable Type blog look completely different here: http://www.fuchsbau.amichan.de

I can really really recommend it from my heart. If you want further information or help I´d be glad to give it to you.

Greetings from a german reader blogging with an american blogsoftware. ^_^

thanks for your visit over at my blog, and for your sweet, sweet comment! I will be lifted up all day because of that! In answer to your question, my studio is not very big at all...one-car -garage size, actually! I think its about 11x 14. I've just crammed an extraordinary amount of stuff in there!

And I am in love with this beaded doll of yours...just beautiful!!

Thanks again!
have a great day!!
