Now She Deserves An Award!

Nancy's customers are always asking for soldering classes, and for the past couple of years I've taught the typical Soldering 101 workshop. But after finding a stack of bezeled glass, I came up with something a little more playful.
I used a photo of my beloved grandmother, and I found a quote in a children's book of something she said to me as a little girl. Serendipity! I put together this light~hearted class featuring just a bit of soldering. More than anything we will play will paper, paint, rubber stamps, personal photos and more. I'll supply everything you need to complete this 6x10 inch shield dedicated to someone special in your life. Maybe you'll use a photo of yourself, and print out your mantra for 2013. Whatever you decide, I hope a few of you will join me. You can find all the details here. And for those of you who want to focus on learning soldering, I'll be teaching my Soldering 101 class shortly.

A New Year, A New Art Room...

I'm not quite sure what's gotten into my husband, but I'm sure enjoying the benefits! Over the weekend he decided he wanted to refinish/paint my art room floor for me. He even brought in help to clear the space out this morning. Here's what it looked like 2 hours ago...
In the spirit of honestly, I didn't bother to move the boxes that have collected before snapping away.

I'm not quite sure how this room will evolve as we get it back together later this week. But here's what it looked like emptied of all the stuff I've gathered and collected. My son would rather we turn this into a guest room, or game room... Ha! And my husband told the guy helping us move, that everything was for sale. At least he didn't say they could put it in the trash!
 You know how everything gets worse before it gets better? Well here's the worse... my bedroom now looks like this. 45 minutes was all it took to empty the room, and create a big mess in my bedroom where are the smalls wound up. The garage isn't looking too hot right now either!

I guess as Mr Warren is taking care of the floor, I'll be organizing and hopefully purging a bit of this. Anyone care to join me for the big clean up? I sure could use some help!
