I figured I better post today so I wouldn't
completely miss posting in December.
How did that happen, you say?
Well, I'll tell you.
I blame Etsy.
Well, Etsy *and* the holidays.
Thanksgiving and Christmas
Cooking and Cleaning
All that good stuff.
I love it.
It's great finally having an Etsy shop open, but I do
find that I'm a little too obsessed with checking on it.
I didn't want that to happen. I have sold a few things,
which pleases me to no end. But I don't want to be
obsessed with the selling. I'd much rather be obsessed with
the making. And Santa brought me some new toys so
I'm really anxious to put them to good use.

I've been wanting a disc cutter and have read lots of reviews....
and seriously, how can you go wrong when this thing has
five stars on Rio Grande from 37 reviewers.
|Santa even sprung for the Center-Positioning Die Set|
Seriously. Who thought of this?! Well, I know who did...I think I read about her
the other day, but it's seriously amazing. Someone on a jewelry blog said she
couldn't imagine what you'd want a 1/8" hole for...but I sure can.
Look at those little gems! If I had a better dapping set, I could really turn those into
bead caps. My little set will just barely dome them.
|Yes! You can turn the washers into seamless rings. How cool is that?!?|
I'm blown away by this. And here's a great
video on Rio to show how it's done.
I can't wait to try it with silver!
Blogger is acting so weird tonight.
Maybe I'll look back over the last year
of blogging for the next post.
I sort of know how the year has gone, jewelry wise,
but it's always good to take inventory.
Happy New Year, Everyone!
And Carpe Diem! :)
