November is My Travel Month.

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you are all feeling a lot better than me. I have Bronchitis :( BLAH!!!!! Oh well the joys of the season.

To cheer myself up, I have been thinking about all the significant trips I have taken in the month of November. It has definitely been my travel month. This time last year I went on a road trip to visit my daughter in San Fran. (Fun times!)

Our Family moved to the US from England one very cold November. And both the previous times I had lived in North America I either went or left in November.

So, as I was travelling around the local area recently I found myself snapping shots of Railway Tracks and it made me want to hop on a train to go off on an adventure. (So, I hopped on the internet to book a couple of trips for 2011 instead He! He!)

I love how this disappears around the corner :)

It was so much fun capturing the tracks in different locations in different lights. I am a big fan of graffiti, I know it is a nuisance to a lot of people and the gang related stuff does worry me but some of it is very relevant artwork.

I hope you enjoyed this little adventure. Where would you like the Train Tracks to take you?

Leave me a comment and let me know :)

One more thing, a couple of the groups I belong to on Etsy are having big sales.  Here is the link to the Createability Team Blog with a list of participating Etsy Shops with Sales check them out you never know what you might fall in love with. :)

I will keep you posted of the Female Photographers of Etsy Sale too (Not posted yet)

Recovering From The Weekend!

Happy Tuesday Everyone :)

This is what I needed to do to recover from the weekend!!!!!

So, without having to pay a fortune on psychotherapy to recover from this weekend's event (local Art Show and Sale, well, way more showing than selling) I went thru a little self talk, yep, I am the crazy lady who talks to herself :)

1). I might not have sold much but nobody else did either! (OK, so all the guys did but that was it, so I didn't take it personally) PHEW!

But I do need to investigate this sexist thing! (Might have to spend a little psychotherapy cash on that one :(

2). Regardless of what the "powers that be" keep telling us that the recession is over,  in the trenches we know that it is FAR from over. People are still hurting and bargains (I mean ridiculously low prices) are wanted EVERYWHERE or people are not buying. Luxury and Non essential items are out and ART and Photography fits into both of those categories. Bummer! :(

3). I got to hang out with some other Artisans and see some great work and be inside in a cozy well lit room while it poured with rain and was cold and miserable outside.

4). My Hubby came over to watch over my booth while I went home to have a nap! :) Yep, I could never last a whole day, at anything without my NAP!

5). I didn't spend all Weekend on the Computer :)

6). I learnt a lot of valuable stuff, like really know what you are getting yourself into, sounds simple in hindsight but.................

Anyway, putting that behind me, I have decided to have a SALE in my Photography Shop on ETSY!

50% off everything in my Photography Shop 'til  22nd Nov. :)

So, check it out you might find a photo for that hard to buy for person in your life. :)

And to end on a High Note or 2, I would really like to thank my Blogger Buddy WIND who bestowed on me the  "Best Virtual Friend Award" last week. If you haven't seen her photography you are really missing something awesome. You can check it out HERE!

And Last but by no means least, I want to Thank my Blogger Buddy Kelli, from Bug Miscellany Blog who has to be one of the Sweetest people on the planet :)

She awarded me The Versatile Blogger Award last week and so,
 Here are 7 things about me;

1). I am a die hard Brit, living on the West Coast of America and yes, I love to drink tea and with a piece of cake, awesome! :)

2). Until recently I hadn't bought (or carried) a handbag for nearly 15 years. I did break down and buy a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag but I only use it when I travel.

3). I am a sucker for old movies esp. war movies.

4). I didn't own a Teddy Bear until I was 19!

5). I love to weight train when my health allows.

6). I want to learn how to fly a plane.

7). My son is the fourth generation of my family to be born in a different Country.

So, I would like to pass this on to all my Blogger Buddies who would like to participate. Just leave a comment with your 7 things about you or blog about it and leave me a comment with a link.
