Soldering class at Dava Beads

Soldering class at Dava Beads


Posted on Dec 3, 2007

For my Birthday, my sister gave me a gift certificate to take a class with her.  This past Saturday, I cashed that gift cert in.  After a wonderful breakfast, we took this Soldering Pendant Jewelry class at Dava Beads in Hillsdale.   The class was wonderful!  I had taken basically this same class at a different place a few years ago.  That class wasn’t very good and I left it frustrated and feeling...

Sudoku Tip

As you know, I love Sudokus.  I’m pretty much addicted to them.  I find it hard to hold the book while doing them.  The book always flaps shut or it’s tiring for my hands to hold it open.   To solve this problem, I now put a clip at the top and the book stays open all by itself.  It’s really such a huge help.  At first I had to get over the idea of breaking the book’s spine...

My husband and I finally got around to framing a few things we’ve had for awhile.  I bought this papercut in Vancouver in August.  It is one piece of paper and the fish motif means ‘dreams come true’.  I just fell in love with it.  It was tricky trying to find a square frame.  I finally used a frame that was meant to house a record.  I want to make a mat for this some day, but for now...

I can never get enough of sunsets.  I just love them! It was also a full moon that...

Yep, I pretty much outgrew Halloween when I was 12.  After I got too big to go trick or treating and since I don’t have any kids, there doesn’t seem to be a real reason for me to celebrate this holiday.  I haven’t dressed up for at least a decade, but this year I was invited to a neighbor’s party and costumes were REQUIRED.  What’s a girl to do?  I decided that I needed a costume where...

Blogging before Christmas

Blogging before Christmas


Posted on Oct 30, 2007

This is the season where blogging starts to get tougher.  I’m turning into Christmas mode and have started working several presents.  I try to have at least one handmade item for my family and I’ve got two months to get my act together.  So if you think the craftiness has left this blog, don’t worry.  After Christmas, I will have lots to show and...
