Branching Out…

So, I don’t think I’ve ever shown anything that I’ve soldered before.

Wow – was that hard to photograph!! These ornaments really sparkle – Martha Stewart glitter is AWESOME!! Anyways, I’m going to be making up a couple dozen of these for the craft fair. I can see I have to add a bit more to solder around the edges of this one – amazing what a camera can pick up. I’ve ordered more glass to be cut for me – they will measure 2” by 2”. This one is 2” by about 1.5”. I think I’ll like the square shape better. I ordered some more snowflakes too and am hoping that there are a couple small ones – I think this would be a cute pendant. I’d wear it. ha ha! Well, happy crafting!!

Oh – how was your Halloween? We had a great time – the kids trick-or-treated through the neighborhood as we handed out candy. We spent the evening with friends and neighbors – lotsa fun! Here’s a picture -

OK – you can quit laughing now!! (I’m in the cowboy hat with the yarn braids on the left!)

Just checking how hard it is to post a comment - I've gotten emails saying it isn't working?

Hey - I changed a couple things and it seems easier!

I wish I knew how to solder. I love the idea of tiny little glass enclosed frames. Did you take a class to learn how?
