Blog...What blog? Oh yeah...oops...sorry!

Four months...FOUR months! I can't believe that I have neglected my blog so badly! I may not have a whole lot to say, but that's just crazy...

So, what have I been doing the past four months?

Well, at work my department is in the process of relocating to a new space. Previously we were split up in three different office spaces, and by the end of August we will all be unified in one, very large suite in a brand new building. Still off campus, but at least it won't be a 20 minute walk to inter-departmental meetings anymore! Sure, I will be giving up being in close proximity to all the downtown restaurants, my Post Office and the Red Cross Donor center, but in the long run it should be a great step for our department. Besides, during the summer months, there is a fresh home-grown fruit and veggie mini-market at the far end of our parking lot...YUM! And, the location should cut about 7 miles and 18 minutes off my total daily commute. We'll see how it goes...

Of course, this reminds me that my break is over and I need to get back to packing up my office.

Be back soon! Have a great day!

Check out "Myths about Metals"

Hi there everyone...Yes, the LizardQueen has returned!

I just wanted to let you all know about a blog series that a fellow Etsian, Mystic Wynd, is doing. It is called "Myths about Metals" and she is sharing lots of interesting tidbits about different metals each day. So far she has done gold, silver and copper. Please take a few moments to check it out, you won't be sorry! And I'm sure you will find out some bit of information that you didn't know!

It's been awhile...

Wow! I can't believe that I have not updated in so long! So...what has kept me away for so long? I wish I could answer that one. I have been really busy at work lately (yeah, I sometimes post on my lunch hour) and I haven't had much spare time during the day. Fortunately I have been able to work on some jewelry in the evenings and I hope to get some photographed soon!

I have also been using Google Analytics for my Etsy shop for a little more than a month now. I have figured out several new features and I hope to gather some data and post that information later this week. I will say this though, it took exactly a month, but I have now had visitors in
my Etsy shop from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. I am also fascinated by the number of visitors I have from around the world. Since I have added International Shipping to my shop, I have seen those visits increase in both number as well as length. Hopefully I will have an opportunity to send some of my jewelry to another country soon...I can't wait to see where that might be! Okay, I guess I just got a little of subject there, so I should probably stop here for now. If I try to catch up on everything from the past 2 1/2 weeks, it will be completely unintelligable!

Oh yeah, and if you have been here before, I imagine you have probably already noticed that I have done some reformatting here on my blog. I hope you like the changes. I had to do it, I just couldn't take all of the wasted space on the sides before!

Alright, time to go for real now. Be back soon!

Have a great day!
