more blog rantings!

I will find the look I'm after for this blog!!! I will, I will, I will! *giving myself a pep talk!*

So, what I think I've decided to do is not mess with my template *as in trying to change it over to a 3 column* and just re-do all my blog links and widgets I had set up. I know that I will not be able to remember each person I have linked, so if I miss you and you'd like to be linked here, just post a comment and I'll take care of it!

In my perusing for blog things, I found out that is a software solution *it's another version of wordpress* where I can host my own blog. DH and I had been talking about setting up our own server, so that may be the way this blog ends up going. Which would be so nice...from what I understand you have complete control over all the ins and outs of your blog. We've been thinking of doing the server thing because we'd like to be able to share videos of DD with family and friends. I'll let you know if anything comes of it.

Thanks for bearing with me!

So in my quest to make my blog look pretty I've now wiped out all my links, about me, blog rolls, etc...

Fun times! I'm not going to even attempt to put them back in until I figure out how I want my blog to look and get that settled. And apparently there is some problem with uploading templates to blogger right now. I keep getting an error message when I will work itself out!

I'm playing around with my blogger template right now. Trying to find a style that I like best. So bear with me if it looks funky for a bit...I'm working on it!

My camera has died....

Oh, I'm so camera seems to have bit the dust!

I just started an Etsy store a little bit ago...I'll link to it here soon. Right now it has mostly doll clothes that my mother and I sell and some other crafty goodness. Well, ok, I really only have 2 items in it right now! LOL. My goal is to list some of my papercrafted items as well as other crafts we make and doll clothes. The good news? I've already sold one thing! YAY! I sold a doll dress to a gal in Spain. Can you believe it? Spain! How cool.

Anyway, back to my camera....I was over at my mom's a couple days ago to take some pics of things we want to list on Etsy. I get things all set up, turn the camera on...and, what?!? My camera turns right off again. I try it again a few more times...and same thing! I thought it was my battery. So I go home and recharge my such luck. Now, with a charged battery my camera won't even turn on! I don't know what the deal is. But with the battery my camera uses it's not cheap. I think they are like $50 or so. For that price I might as well get a new camera. I've kinda been wanting one anyway. I would love to have a nice compact one that I can stick in my purse and it's not bulky. You know, for all those great spur of the moment shots.

My camera is about 7 or 8 years old. So I can't say I'm surprised it's acting up. It's just a bummer cuz I have at on of cards I've been working on that I have no pics of to show you! And I've been being a bad blogger and haven't shown you any new fun stuff in ages!

I'm also going to post another bling share soon. This will be for the remaining colors that were not in the previous share I hosted. Keep an eye out for it! The bling is SO much fun!

ETA: I'm not totally without a camera...I have my DH's that I can use! His is a pretty nice I have to work a little bit more to make sure I get niec shots as I'm not used to all the settings on his! So, thankfully, I'm not totally without!
