Bling Blog problems

Just wanted to let you know there's a problem with accessing my catablogs directly. Wasn't aware of it myself until this past weekend when I  was updating other social media vehicles and realized the slideshows weren't showing at all. So I tried logging into the buybling blog directly and got a nasty surprise. 

Looks like someone has redirected my address to their site. Not sure if it's an aggressive advertiser or some phishing for confidential information. Either way it was news to me and I've contacted Google to alert them to the situation. Problem is there's no way of exiting the "interloper's" site to get to see the BLING. Did run a test to see if there was another way to access those pages and yes, it works if you're linking from this blog. For your convenience, here's the link:

My apologies for the nuisance factor. Hopefully, Google will find a way to fix this before too long. In the meantime, I've added some new pieces in all categories so it's worthwhile having a browse if you're so inclined. Even though I've been lax in posting, I've been experimenting with new techniques and materials throughout the spring.

Am also gearing up for a jewelry party sometime later in summer -- have to clear out stock for more storage room --  so do let me know if you're interested.

You have to start somewhere

Q. When does a hobby stop being a hobby?
A. When you no longer continue the activity for pure enjoyment.

That being said, I’m a hobbyist who enjoys creating. My current interest is mostly jewellery – glass beads, metal, natural stone and minerals. I get a kick learning a technique or working with a medium I haven’t tried before. The problem is what do I do with all the items I’ve made. My solution is this blog.

I’d rather see the bracelets, necklaces et al find a home with someone who will enjoy wearing them as much as I did making them. If I can cover my costs as well, then I can afford to keep trying new projects without going broke. Sounds good in theory. Hope it works.

Look forward to hearing from you by email if you see something you like or have questions.
