Today was a nice day. Warm, sunny, bright - a rarity this year. This treasury by Myklia, full of lovely lights reminds me of that unfamiliar ball of fire in the sky. I got burned today. I was wearing sunblock, but a cave is really what I need.

I'm watching a little bit of The West Wing right now. The episode, "Game On" is one of my favorites (what am I saying, they're all my favorites), and Bartlet is proving now that he is not at all Uncle Fluffy... EdensWake pays homage to all the characters we love, and my photograph is, indeed, named after the Landingham of West Wing fame.

This month's advertising contest in the category of "business savvy" was all about banners. Entrants submitted their shops, and I judged banners based on a variety of criteria, including overall clarity, text, balance of composition, reflection of shop contents, and how much the banner would inspire the viewer to continue on into the depths of the shop.
Jewels by Johanna scored the highest overall. The color palette of the banner echoes each of her product listings, and the text is clear, crisp, and tasteful.
Jewels by Johanna is headed up by Johanna Shaw of Chelmsford, Massachusetts. Johanna's work is showcased in her Etsy Shop and on her Main Website, but the most complete selection of her work can be seen in her Photo Gallery. Johanna's Curling Themed Jewelry (pictured below) is my favorite.
