March 29, 2012


One of my favourite things about going for a run is the way it connects me to my neighbourhood. I was so excited to meet this new little cutie and have time to say hi. I loved seeing a little girl bound out of her house, ballet bag in hand, on her way to the local studio. Her father ever so slowly walking out the front door, stirring his tea and watching she gets there safely, staying far enough back to let her feel she's doing it all on her own. And the poor little boy with his eyes on the Donkey Kone ice cream truck getting farther and farther down the street, as his dad talks on his cell and his mom puts her shoes on. He suddenly lets out, "At least we could try!"


Accomplishment calender this month so far, I've cleared up the tack allocation and it's been a bit of a sporadic this month but still keeping going and keeping accomplishing. Been working out way more and have had more money tucked away too -woohoo!



After talking with Shannon for Hexed I had some time to do some varnishing in my crafts room of pendants I am working on. That big orange slice is going to become (I hope) my zipper pull on my purse. I also spent a lot of the day making the video tutorial of the skulls in the photo. Turns out that if you name the band or music you use in the video (I was trying to give credit) on YouTube you get flagged and they put ads on your video. So, I uploaded mine to Vimeo instead. Live and learn!

Love hearing the events on your walk Jamie, stories abound!

Shannon, you totally are rockin' it out of the park, I love it. So many accomplished goals!!!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

WTG, Shannon! The accomplishments continue. I kept singing that "money, money, money, money, money" as I saw the bills racking up there. Woot!

Suzie, I love the orange slice. It looks so delicious!

With YouTube, I found even if you don't flag the song they do that. They've got some incredible reading device there!

I have a new video I want to do with music and I'm trying to figure out the best way to do that. I might look at the music you can now buy on Vimeo!

Suzie Ridler said...

Jamie, that makes me think of the Donald Trump theme song, LOL.

Thanks! So far successfully it has been turned into a cheerful zipper pull.

Oh, you can buy music on Vimeo now? I like that!

omg, that is such a cute cat Jamie! I'm finding the neighbourhood cats are all over the place these days!

Suzie I love your little orange slice, I totally thought it looked good enough to eat; although I'm sure that's not what it's for - hehehe
