Straddling two blogs or caught between two blogs....

Right now, I'm posting on two blogs, this one, Lampwork Diva! and my other one at Wordpress, Cindy Gimbrone Studio (click the title and it will take you to the other blog). I'd like to customize this blog more but haven't been able to figure out how. I can customize the header at Wordpress but not here at blogger. BUT I can customize the side menus here on blogger and haven't figured out how to do it on Wordpress. If I could only meld both sites together then I'd have the perfect site for a blog!

I don't plan on running two blogs on the same topic for long. As soon as I figure out how to customize Blogger or Wordpress to my satisfaction, the "loser" blog will become an archive with the post a link to the new blog. When it happens, I'll post it.

I've got the Urban Glass Bead Expo coming up on me. March 23-25th, 2007 at the Metropolitan Pavillion on W. 18th St., NYC. I hope you'll stop by to see me there!

The other blog.....

Is it Sunday night already!?! Where did the weekend go? I've been on a new schedule that includes less time at the computer and more hours interpreting....which translates into less blogging. I've been working on a more personalized blog - as I've probably mentioned before but not sure when or where anymore (hmmm my new schedule seems to be contributing to confusion!)...but here's the link to the other blog

How does it look?

I just got the awesome-est (no that's not a word but I'm making it up here 'cuz it fits!) email from some KEWL people via etsy. Now, I've had the etsy shop for awhile - I really wanted to close it but I can't remember my username and password so etsy won't let me delete it! But today it brought me such a nice email, I'm happy I can't remember my username! What this person says is soooooooo nice I have to share it with the world!

>HI:) Was browsing wetcanvas and read a comment you made in one of the posts, was so cute that I had to check out your web >site. Then from there was snaired like a rabbit with a carrott on a hook into your blog, hehe, and then to here- your etsy >listings.

Awwwwwww - a BIG THANK YOU SFDglassbeads!! I'm flattered you were interested enough to follow all those links! blush!

>My Partner Dan and I both think you are super cool:)

WOW! Double thank you! I don't think anyone (except my son when he was 4) ever said I was super cool! Gee whiz! Thanks!

>we just started doing lampwork a year ago- although the dream was born a few years back (took a bit of elbow grease and >time to get all the gear and get it going:). We primarily sell on ebay, but we have an etsy shop and web site also, and are >doing our first big art/craft show this summer (we are in NC). We are both just loving the path that glass has been leading >us on,

Welcome to the - yeah, that's right, art!! Giggle! I hope you are doing well on ebay and with your etsy shop! Post a comment and tell me the address of your shop! Good luck with the summer show! I love to do shows, you get to meet and talk to your customers. It's a thrill for me to meet people who share the excitement of glass art! :-)

> and when we meet, or spy from a distance- someone >cool we just have to say something about it. so there. LOL, Realy:) >Really like your style, smiles,

It's always nice when someone appreciates the art you make! Thank you! Ok, I'll stop gushing now!

I appreciate the emails and comments. Sometimes you feel like you're just talking to the wind and no one is listening! So thanks for reading and listening and being brave enough to comment!

ok ok ok.....I'm still gushing! What do I think I'm doing? Accepting an academy award??? This is where the producers cut me off and start to play the music and go to commercial!
