Etsy's Treasury East

Check it out. Someone placed 2 of my items in Etsy's Treasury East.

I've never attempted to get a Treasury spot. I really don't have time to waste waiting around for a spot to open up, and then attempting to beat thousands of other people who are also trying to get a spot. But I think I will put together a list in Treasury East. Sounds like my kind of fun!!

Look!! It's a puppy that's been keeping me so darn busy around here. She is into everything and will attempt to eat anything she can get in her mouth. Puppy only has 2 speeds - hyper and sleep.

Somehow my daughter talked us into getting a miniature dachsund. Her name is Angel (which I don't like, but what can I do about it? I wanted to name her Chloe Ann, but my daughter thinks that is a stupid name for a dog.)

Puppy is really cute. Our kitty is having a difficult time accepting an intruder, but she is slowly coming around. Hopefully when the puppy chills out the kitty won't mind having her around.

Music Monday!!!!

I haven't disappeared!! I'm still around, I've just been busy with something. I can't share photos right now because the battery on my camera just died, which figures. You'll have to check back to see what I've been up to. I'll also be listing some new items in my Etsy shop this week.

I love all kinds of music. I get into ruts now and then and I search for something new and/or different. I also have a tendency to have my new favorites on repeat, or I just keep returning to them to hear them again. I watched Bandslam last weekend, and while it was an okay movie, I really (really) had one song stuck in my head all week. So I found it and I listened to it today on repeat for about 3 hours. Seriously. I just wasn't in the mood to listen to anything else. Oh, the song is 'Pretend' by Scott Porter.

I also purchased Civil Twilight's new CD. While technically not 'new' since it was available originally as download only on Itunes, I still had to have the actual CD in my hands. And the CD version has 3 more songs. I love it!! I listen to it a lot.

Someone else I really enjoy is Scott Clifton. I originally knew him as Dillon Quartermaine on General Hospital. He just finished a storyline on One Life To Live, and I have no idea where he'll show up next.

I've known about his music since he started on GH, and I purchased his first 2 CDs. When he came out with his 3rd CD, I didn't purchase it immediately, thinking that I would get it later. Then it slipped my mind, and then a few weeks ago I decided it was time to get the newest CD. I went to his website and it was listed as sold out!!! So I contacted the person in charge, and they replied that Scott said he's sorry, but they're all gone. I was bummed. For about a day. Until I received an email from this guy : Jeff Pescetto. That would be Scott's producer. He offered me a copy of the new CD. So I jumped at the opportunity to get it, sent him the money, and a week later I had the CD in my hot little hands. It's so good!! I am so glad that the producer went out of his way to make sure I received this CD that I wanted so badly. I really appreciate it.
