*waves hello to all the new people*

I think yesterday set some sort of record for number of people to friend me in one day! I feel I should warn you all that most of my posts will not be like yesterday's. Mostly I post about writing, and jewelry, and fannish things. I tend to avoid politics and things of that nature. But you're welcome to stay as long as you like, and feel free to introduce yourselves or not, as you like. :-)

In other news, we got our taxes back yesterday - okay, so this really doesn't mean we get money, so much as we get back part of the money we had to pay to the Feds. However, this does not stop me from thinking "Hmmm, I could buy one of those embossing hammers now, couldn't I?" My planishing hammer hasn't even arrived yet (but tracking says it is currently 'out for delivery'!!) But I also want to buy a 3M radial disk kit for my dremel, the easier to sand and polish soldering projects as I finish them. Choices, choices.

I received one of the two metalsmithing books I ordered, and I admit to a little disappointment. A lot of it was repeating information I've already found online, and there were only a couple of projects. Most of it was "here are tools and techniques" without a lot of specific step by step stuff that I was really hoping for. Still, there's some good information. Maybe the other book will impress me more.

I'm working on a necklace, and another soldered ring, but nothing new to post yet. Hopefully by this weekend, there will be. But I'm teaching my class at the bead store tonight, so we'll see. I may not get much chance to work more until the weekend. The first weekend in May has another gem and bead show I'm hoping to go to, and the last weekend in June has one is Seattle. (kistha, I'm pretty sure that's the weekend we were talking about me coming up for? I mean, if there's a huge bead show happening, it wouldn't hurt to stop by, right?) So, more sparklies will hopefully be obtained. :-)

And now I'm off to space pirates. Barring any online news that completely derails me this afternoon, I hope to break 50K today.

I'm so excited. I just bought Summer Whimsy Chalcedoy for my mother-in-law's birthday. *bounce*

Oh! I just got the e-mail notification! I hope she likes it. :) I'll get it in the mail to you tomorrow.

I actually have a 'new' version along that same theme that's been tumbling around in my head since I finished that one. It's a bit more involved, though, so I don't know when I'll get around to actually making it. Or if it will even work, lol.

If for some unfathomable reason she doesn't like, IT'S MINE. :D

The week that I have the condo for is June 23rd through the 30th. Which is indeed the last weekend in June. (Whee-hee! Sparklies!) I'm hoping we'll get to see a lot of you that week/weekend and do many fun things.
