I think I need a better lamp

Or something. relying on Mother Nature for photos isn't fun. I don't like taking pics of jewelry with a flash. I think it takes away from the natural look of the stuff. Today we have no sunshine & yesterday was perfect except I had no time to take the pics...*sigh*

Last week, my kids had a few snow, or rather, too cold to go to school days. 14 was talking about a comedian that one of his friends from school kept imitating. So, we spent some time watching him on You Tube. Jeff Dunham. For the last few days, all of my children, my husband & I have been repeating lines from his characters, but mainly from Achmed the Dead Terrorist. Dock will get out of the shower & call up "SILENCE!!....I keel you!". Out of the blue, the kids will come up to me, while I'm talking and utter the same phrase. Then we all start saying it, one after another. I also like to ask my hub if I'm pissing him "off-fa-fa?". After watching excerpts on you tube, we did enjoy the full Spark of Insanity show on Comedy Central this weekend. Jeff Dunham does an amazing job with the puppets. All of 'em are a crack up. Da-da-da-daaa!

Silence!! I keel you!

it's true, the straight on flashes take so much out of a picture! i know you probably don't wanna spend a ton of money, but there may be a pretty good solution to get some really decent light for your jewelry. buy a halogen work light, ya know the kind that are SUPER hot and big and annoying... but they WORK! and they're great, cuz you can see exactly where the light is going to hit. i'm not sure how much they are, but i'm sure they don't run too terribly high... maybe that would work!

and jeff dunham is hilarious, i love the achmed sketch, it's so funny. and we (meaning me and my friends) use those phrases all the time lol
