I was lucky enough to take Kim's Soldering 101 class last Saturday and it was a blast. I suggest any class she offers and it just so happens she's teaching at The West Coast Retreat in Petaluma and at the Cloth Paper Scissors retreat in Chicago this summer. She's been published in Stampington magazines too many times to list, but let's just say I can see why. She's a fun teacher. She also has a local retreat in the works and teachers whose work you may have admired in blogs or magazines will be coming in for it...more on that soon.
You can see my efforts above. I'm practicing with cheap solder so the pendants look a little dirty, but who cares? I also made a mini plaque to hang on a tiny patch of wall we have next to a closet. I have to say....I'm pretty impressed with myself. I plan to keep practicing even edges, trying to make them smooth and flat and then I'll graduate to a better grade of solder.
I found the doll pic in the latest Paper Source catelog. It's one of the few paper catalogs I won't give up because of all the beauty contained in the pages. Plus they offer handmade and recycled papers too.
I love this bag, but since I'm not in the market for a new grocery bag (aghahaha!), I decided to enjoy the colors in a pendant.
Well, it's day two of Heather's 30 Day Vegan e-course and I'm doing great. Today's bonus recipe was vegan chocolate cake. I decided (before taking the class) that I might not do much baking since I tend to overeat the goods, but that cake...that cake...well, if you see some pics on the blog tomorrow you know that I made it and that's that.
In the meantime Mark and I split this vegan salad today (even the rye bread is vegan) and neither one of us was complaining.
I appreciate your comments on the Post-it window! Thank you!
