Wow I am really blown away at the reaction to the scenery here, I guess I do take it for granted a bit Undecided lol. But you all are so amazing thanks for all the comments.

I also wanted to explain a bit about geographically where we are as it can be a bit confusing to those that havent been here. Shetland is part of Scotland it lies in the middle of the North Sea and the Atlantic. It is a 14 hour ferry journey from the mainland of Scotland to Shetland and it is very very isolated , but that being said Shetland has a thriving community,infact we just got voted as the Top place in Scotland for quality of life Grin

I was wondering what one does in such a remote, BEAUTIFUL, and tiny place?

You pictures are stunning. I'm going to europe in may, maybe we'll make it to your country and your end of it, it is certainly amazing.

 I work in the Social Care Sector here and love my job and also sell my crafty creations occasionally. And if you do visit, as I always say PM me we always welcome visitors  Smiley

So the man and I just got back from a long walk on what we thought was going to be a sunny winters day.... Undecided
But as soon as we got down the beach the wind and hail battered us but none the less I got a few more pictures to share. Even tho my face is still burning from the hail and the sand getting blown at me at force 1000 gales lol. Grin Here they are I hope you enjoy them as well.

Just as the storm was coming in it looks beautiful but we werent expecting it, really we should know better the weather changes every few minutes here,lol


The man walking on the beach


The restored croft house with thatched roof... they hold knitting groups in there, its now a small community gathering place


The sun setting


The cliffs before the storm got us


The horses and somewhere hiding the shetland ponies at the cliffs


The beach looking towards my house


And the sheep with the bird on its back... it never fails to make me laugh


And last but not least the pic my man took of me getting battered with hail and sand at the beach


So there you have it some more pictures and another glimpse into my day today in Shetland.
Thanks again for looking and commenting it makes my day so much brighter!! Kiss

It really warms my heart to read all these lovely replies. And yes Shetland is enchanting but with less than 22,000 people in total here there is plenty of room for visitors and those who do end up moving here. I am going to try and get out today and take some more photos so I might have some more to share soon, I am so glad you all enjoy my photos, thanks again so much you wonderful craftsters for your comments!!

Thanks again so much for all the nice comments. I am very lucky to live here but I do sometimes forget that in all honesty, especially when the sun is only up for a few hours and its windy and cold,lol. But it always is stunning and as a nature lover it is pure raw nature here.

Ineee you certainly should come here to visit some time seeing as we are only a few hundred miles apart and Shetland shares alot of its heritage and culture with Norway  Smiley and I always am happy to welcome crafty travellers.

I will try and update this thread with pictures when I can there is always something I want to take a photo of lol Smiley

All the best to you my crafty friends and thanks again.

Thanks so much for the comments!! Your all so sweet.

QB I hope you do get to visit here someday it is a beautiful place like no other and I realize how lucky I am to call it home, and if ever you do visit drop me a line, I am always happy to be tour guide.

Oh and the sheep out number the humans here, they roam free and are the biggest road hazard,lol,they cause more hold up than anything as traffic is a non issue here,lol Grin Altho I can get cheap raw wool anytime too bad I havent learned to spin wool yet  Undecided I dont think I have the patience hehe
But thanks again for the kind comments I realize I am no professional photographer but with scenery like here its hard to take a bad picture I think.

Well I thought I would share with my crafty friends a bit of my island life here in Shetland. We are a tiny isolated group of islands ,the furthest northerly islands in the UK, with some of the most beautiful scenery I have the honor to see everyday. We are currently in our long long winter nights but the pay off is the long long summer days with almost no darkness. I hope you enjoy my photos comments are welcomed and appreciated.

Wow everyone great stuff I will eventually get around to contributing,lol, eventually. But I just had to say to littlestellarbeam that you have great pics there and the third picture down of the street performer covered in piercings happens to be a woman I know named Elaine who also happens to be the most pierced woman in the world and holds the guiness world record for such a feat,or at least i think she still holds the record. Just thought I would share and again say Great Pics to everyone I really enjoy this thread.

20  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Postsecret Swap Round 3 GALLERY!! on: March 07, 2008 07:08:37 PM
In reference to the "Neo-nazi" thing I agree with the fact that this most likely is a secret for a reason,not all secrets are something a person takes pride in, and sometimes a physical attraction to a person doesnt mean that you agree with there ideals. I have always been anti censorship and believe art shouldnt be censored be it a secret,sculpture,music or a painting. Sometimes the things that we find so offensive or disturbing are the things we either need to confront in ourselves or can inspire change in this world. And I personally dont believe the secret promotes racism, it is purely a statement and we are all free to read into it what we like.Thats just my two cents.
