How I use Stumble Upon

9 comments
I thought that I would give a glimpse of how I use social bookmarking websites such as Stumble Upon,  to share some of my favorite sites. This could be either right or wrong...it's just how I do it.
The first thing I highly recommend is to download their toolbar as it makes saving favorites a cinch!
Alrighty....let say I found this fantastic site that I want to share with everyone. What to? Well, the first thing of course is to click the the little blue "thumbs up" symbol i located in the Stumble toolbar, that says "I like it". The blue thumbs up turns green and then you are presented with another screen.



You at this point have two choices (tabs),  a "Quick submit or "Add a review". I always use the "Add a review" as it gives relevancy to the pages you are
"stumbling" (submitting).
1. The very first thing is to check the radio button of whether the site you are submitted is worksafe.

2. Next, you are able to select 5 accompanying tags to describe the site you are bookmarking.
   (Tip: What I do is click my mouse directly in the tag box and type my own tags instead of using the   standard tags (shown in blue). As I use tags, they are saved under "Your Favorite Tags" (shown in grey) and they will appear the next time you stumble and item. It really is a time safer and love this feature!)

3. I normally do not fill in the Review box but if you are so inclined, go for it!! :)
 

4. Finally click the "Add review" button and your done!

Hope this helped!

    Textured Fine Silver with Enamel Flower Pendant Choker

    2 comments
    This year for me is all about learning the art of enameiing.

    This is the second piece "successfully" enameled, I say successfully because these particular colors are very had to achieve when working with precious metal clay.
    Greens and blues, not problem. But delve into the red hues, fasten your seat belts people, you never know what will turn out!

    So, I present to you, my fine silver and enameled star pendant!

    Happy New Years

    0 comments
    I have no set resolutions...just aspirations of good thing s for the coming year!
    ..well, maybe I secretly have some New Years resolutions but I'll spare the reader of them right now.

    I do know, this blog is getting a make over very shortly. Cutting out the clutter, make it more visually appealing and will start adding some reviews of some of my favorite jewelry as well as sprinkling some of my own in from time to time.

    In the interim...we well, stay safe and have a glorious New Years!
