Early New Year's Resolutions



So, I started knocking off my 2007 Resolutions a bit early this year. My bestest friend Deb reminded me of a sale at a crafty shop we both love, and with $20 I got for Christmas, I bought myself a soldering gun and have already tried it out! I'll admit, my work is rather rough and ugly, but I really don't care! I love the fact that I tried it - soldering is something I've always wanted to try. (I don't care much for the smell of it though!)

Here's a necklace I did here. I was so proud of myself creating a loop for hanging! Then I used a chain that I got from my mother from this year's Yankee Swap. (I got some of her old jewelry!) So this piece represents a lot to me and I will wear it with pride! :)

Laurie! I just love it!! I agree about the smell.. not sure I could do a ton of it but how cool! I didn't realize they would sell the soldering irons. I really need to get mine to work. That looks awesome! Can't wait to see what else you create! :)

Miss you! Looking forward to our January get together!
