New Year ...2015

I know it's been such a long time since I have posted but life has thrown me for a loop and I am trying to make sense of it all and I am finding it difficult. I normally post my New Years resolution about this time and I was sitting here thinking of what I will do differently in the new year...hmmm I think this year I will go easy on myself and make my resolution about being kinder to people and to stop taking so much for granted, I have certainly learned...Life is short.

I want to thank my family and friends for all the love and support that has been gifted to me over the past several months. I know I never be able to repay everyone for all that they have done for me and will need you all in the coming months for sure...this next year will be one of the most difficult years of my life. I am planning on getting back to teaching next month and back to my work at the Senior Center....I couldn't have gotten through this without you all.

What a Fun Class

Today was the copper skull class and what a fun class. The ladies all did such a great job and learned so many techniques in this class. Thanks Ronna for taking the photo of all the girls are really experts in riveting by now.

Great Deal

This post is for all my students or anybody who own Lindstrom tools. I have had the same 5 pairs of Lindstrom tools for going on 20 years and using them nearly every day of those years. They have allowed me to make hundreds of great jewelry pieces but after all the years of so much use the grips were staring to fall off every time I picked them up, I couldn't keep the springs on them any more and OMG the state of the tips on all the tools looks very worn...I'm talkin big chucks of metal out of the cutters and bent round nose tips so bad they didn't meet together all the way.
A few weeks ago I sent all 5 pairs in to Lindrom and had them reconditioned and WOW!! they look brand new and beautiful. We all know that each pair of pliers or cutters will run you about $55-$65 each and who can afford to have them replaced? granted I have been using mine for nearly 20 years and so you know they must be high quality to get as many years of heavy use as I did before I found out I could get them reconditioned like new for only $10.00 a pair, that's $55.00 for ALL 5 pairs.

Happy Valentines Day

New Year's Eve we said goodbye to our little kitty Rizzo….18 years old but he was always "our kitty".
We found Rizzo on our back door step when we were living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He was about 5 weeks old when he showed up with his tail almost cut off and bleeding so bad I couldn't stand it. I called the compound vet and she came over to fix him up and told us he wouldn't live unless someone took care of him. Well we ended up buying him a ticket to the U.S. when I came home and he had been part of our family for the past 18 years. We sure do miss you Rizzo.
