I am, thanks! I'm so much happier working for someone else than I was working for myself! (And since I'll be closing my biz at the end of the year, it made no sense to me to pay for a blog anymore.) You can also check the free blogs at wordpress.com, but I actually found their interface more confusing.

Hello doll - I just switched back to Blogger from Typepad (after starting with Blogger 6 or 7 years ago, and then moving to Typepad!). If you go into the help topics on Blogger, and do a search, there is a way to import your posts, but I'm not sure about the images/comments. I tried, had a hard time and gave up. I also decided I wanted a fresh start anyway, so I started new at blogger again. BTW, Blogger has changed A LOT in the last few years and the interface and ability to customize the layout is quite nice. Good luck! XO

Ah, yes. Welcome [back] to the working world. I feel your pain. Hope all is well, it will take a while (i.e. 6-ish weeks!) and then all will be well (ish)!!! Good luck my friend! Don't worry about the blog, we do what we can do, and that's all we can do...XO

I couldn't agree more....and I totally get where you're coming from regarding keeping up the blog (I'm there!). Glad you're feeling better - what a scare! And that little Bailey girl? What a beauty! XO

Have you checked out macro filters? I got a set on Amazon, and they do help: http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Concepts-Close-Up-Macro-Filter/dp/B001AO2274/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1272590968&sr=8-1 *wink*
I can completely vouch for this stuff - it's the greatest. I had found some gorgeous vintage tablecloths at the thrift that some weird stains & spots that even Biz wouldn't work on, and Retro Clean totally banished and brightened the cloths. Oh! Here's even a before & after on a vintage crochet apron! http://www.flickr.com/photos/sommerdesigns/1747699284/in/set-72157602023136876/

Great post Jena. I have plenty of insecurities about myself and my appearance (I can so relate to the curly hair!). It wasn't until I was firmly in my 40's that I finally threw in the towel and became comfortable with the way I am. I'll never wear skinny jeans and I'll never have sleek hair, and I'm okay with it. I think getting to the point where you are comfortable in your own skin is one of the most beautiful traits anyone can have. That confidence just oozes out of people with it, and screams to the world. And that, my friend, is beauty & happiness.
