I've been busy the past two weeks mainly trying to stay on track with things. I've been creating new dolls but need to tweak them a little bit more before I can show you what I've been doing. I also finished up the necklace which originally was going to be a purse, but the neck strap isn't to my liking yet so that too needs to be worked on before I can show you.
The biggest thing I have to say is that as of yesterday the results for the Land of Odds Illustrative Bead Tapestry was announced, and my entry (Black Notice) won first place. I didn't even know it as I was working second shift yesterday. I got a text message congratulating me...I didn't know what for. Then it hit me that I might have won the LOD challenge/contest. I gave a quick call to my friend in Washington who confirmed that I did win. I quickly went online and saw "winner" beside my name. I was shocked, happy, and so proud. I want to take this moment to thank everyone who took time from their busy schedules to evaluate and vote for me. I'm still too excited. Now I have to figure out what I want as I won a $1000.00 shopping spree from Land of Odds.

Another thing that happened these past two weeks is that I finally decided to enter the 21st Century by buying a Smart Phone and getting my own Verizon account. What did I get? Since we are all MacIntosh/Apple in this house, I got the iPhone 4S. I have to say there is a big learning curve especially since this gal didn't even know how to text, but using Macs most of it is pretty self evident to figure out. I'm loving it as I can now listen to music at work using the Pandora Radio, and on my break I can check out Facebook. I can TEXT! And I figured out how to download books so I have something to read all the time. Now to learn how to use the camera and video functions. Did I also say that it has GPS and SIRI? And I did manage the voice to text very nicely. I'm sure there is still so much for me to learn.
