3 hours...

I got gas last night... and had 3 hours of soldering hell... Ugh it just wasn't my night. Luckily I didn't melt anything, I just couldn't get things to do what I wanted. Taking the night off to celebrate my hubbies birthday.

I need gas. I should have bought 2 cans the last time. I always use it so fast. I think it is time to upgrade the torch system. I have the mini torch with the disposable cans. Maybe it is time.... I am frustrated and going out to get gas.

step 3 of 1,000

well here it is in step 3 of 1,000. I can see great potential in the beginning of it's journey. I am going to go work on it more today. everything is still in pieces so I would like to get things soldered together at the very least.
Wish I didn't have work retail tonight... oh well.

looking good

I had some time to work in my studio tonight. It's looking good. I do believe it's going to be a nice looking piece in the end. I can't wait to see how it looks all together. I'm hoping that tomorrow I can get another chunk of it done. I will post a picture tomorrow.

hard to work today

Man it is hard to work today. To be honest I have two days off because my husband had surgery on his kidneys to remove stones (one 5mm and one 8mm... ouch.) So it's been hard to work today. I have made small progress. I had to take a nap before it all. What a crazy day! Just glad my sweetie is ok.

Hope I make something good tonight...

wow it's been too long

Posting again! I feel like I want a whole new blog, it's been so long! I have started to make a little work again and I will post pictures as soon as I can (computer problems.)
I put up a picture of my new bench. It's a mess which is the way I like it... Seriously I can't make anything unless it's a mess. I need lots of tools out and a thousand different materials to work with. Right now I am using Polymer clay and semi-precious gemstones. I really like what I am making. I am also doing a lot of experimenting with acrylic paint and resins. It's so much fun! Happy to have a studio again. I just bought a crock pot for my pickle and an ultrasonic. Hooray! for my studio! Oh yeah and I painted all my hammer handles, they are hot!
Hope you like the new look of my blog...... It just feels weird using the old one. I have two days off in a row so I will be working away. I will post again soon.
