Gorjuss Doll Crochet

 Scaled down my Gorjuss doll, to 7 inches, isn't she a cute little Gothic girlie!

Doll is all hand crocheted, and her little dress is hand knitted.

Those of you who are Flickr members are aware by now of the draconian changes made to this photo-sharing site.  This post isn't meant to be a rant against Flickr; there is plenty of that on Flickr's own site.  Suffice it to say that I find the new Flickr a visual disaster, and achingly, achingly slow to load.  Frustrating to find my way around.....

Here is a New site I found called IPERNITY.... thanks to my good friend Beth over at BYHOOKBYHAND Blog.

I like it.  It is clean and simple with a user interface very similar to the old Flickr, and with a respect for our photos: treating them as worthy of individual attention, instead of cramming them en mass in our face.  From an aesthetic standpoint, I prefer to view against white instead of black...of course, this might also have something to do with failing eyesight :-)

Choice is good.  I think I am going to choose Ipernity over Flickr for future photo sharing.  I hope some of you will come and play in this new playground.

Hope all of you will come check us out, and join in on the new photo fun!
