Happy Labor Day...laboring with this blog thing
Welcome, welcome! I've had so many people ask me if I had a blog, would I start a blog and if not, why not? Well, with the urging of many, most specifically the marvelous Margot Potter, "self-proclaimed Bead Queen of the Universe(tm)" http://margotpotter.com/ and Jen Starr, Inky Scrapbooker Extraordinaire, http://jenstarrdesigns.com/ here I go!
I've enjoyed the weekend so far by having fun working on some of my projects. There's been lots of things going on; it never seems to end, but there was time to create. I was just at Beadfest in PA and purchased some new beads from the wonderfully talented Joan Miller http://joanmiller.com/; I was determined to get some new knotted necklaces done, and here it is.
I've also been creating some new soldered pieces. There's a new solder that I'm really having fun working with. A designer of some awesome pieces told me what she was using, assuring me I would have better success, and I have. It seemed odd that I had to order it from CA to get solder that comes from NJ! Go figure. It's called DGS Lead-Free Solder from Canfield.
Enjoy your day off on Monday. I know I will. It goes so quickly, but we're coming upon my second favorite time of year...autumn, first in line is spring...
