Seriously need to get the studio ready!
Archive for February, 2006
Saturday, I had what pretty much seems to be a gall bladder attack. Yesterday my hose for propane crapped out. Had to go all over to find a new one. Just now I was on bead #2, and the propane itself crapped out. I will refill the tank tonight on the way back from the [...]
It’s been busy. With the ArtWalk next weekend, I have been cramming on my display. I could stand to make more glass. My fusing binge is over and it’s time to get a few more beads squeezed out. My large kiln is not here. I am bummed. I was relying on it to help me [...]
Not a very inventive title. Oh well! 5 3/4″ x 5 3/4″ Pink Dish Lots to do today, mail, laundry, class, more mail…not sure if I will make it in the studio, though I would like to. If not today, tomorrow. And every day after, really. I have no choice now. I was hoping my [...]
I promise you. You weren’t driving 60 when a cat pooped in your car, nearby…the cat that you soon learned was the one who ate your spider plant, so that the poop was hanging out her butt on it as she walked across you and jumped down and then back up right in your lap [...]

We learned about the differences between jewelry soldering and electrical (think that ColdHeat tool, which is not useful for jewelry soldering), different types of [...]
I think my photos are too large for this new template (Which I need to finish filling out, sigh. BURNOUT!) =) OOo they just fit. Sweet. Green Globes And yes. My HAIR is in the larger globe. I am going CRAZY trying to get it OUT. Citrus Cubes portable orange and lemon marmalade, if ya [...]
It wasn’t cool that there was a case to be tried, you know, people upset, problems, but I am glad that this time I made it to a jury. It was a criminal case which meant we had to deliberate in the jury room until we came to a unanimous decision. This was not easy to do, we had photos, witnesses, and telephone calls but it was still something we went back and forth on for some time.
Oh! I had my second metalsmithing class. I did much better with the jeweler’s saw….next week is soldering, oooooooo!
I went to the metal studio today and did MUCH better with my saw. I made one piece in copper and practiced turns and things on brass. I broke 5 blades, but got a lot done and am a lot more comfortable now. The sun is out (yay) so the windows are open. I need [...]
