New Year, new attitude

Posted by Sam Kaffine on

Hello out there!! My husband, bless his soul, wasn’t happy with the speed of our computer, so he signed us up for a different provider. Email now takes up 20 minutes of my time, instead of an hour. The computer is so fast and effortless, I am encouraged to keep up with you, dear reader, and to update this site with a wider offering of jewelry, price points and choices. Choices are good, dontcha think?
I am currently fighting my tool addiction – have found a very precise and hot new torch for 1/2 of retail, brand new, here in Colorado Springs, and I WANT IT. Notice I didn’t say that I needed it. I HAVE a torch, not so precise, not so hot, and I hate using it. I am currently working on a custom ring (not my first, but my first to sell) and I want to add rings to my site, but I HATE this torch. So I shall try to make do with some smaller tips – nahhh, F. it, I’m buying a new torch. Yesterday, while fooling around with my old one, I practised fusing fine silver – way more fun than soldering, with no flux, no solder to worry about – at just the precise instant where the silver melts, you pull the heat away, and your PERFECTLY flush ends join on their own. Like buttah, I tell you. I’m averaging one in three success – the other two melt. My learning curve, what can I say?
So, in the interest of catching up, since I last posted I have turned 40 (no big deal), impaled my foot on my bent-nose pliers (OUCH), and had my first grandchild (husband’s a little older than me – his daughter had her first girl, and we have a BEAUTIFUL little baby named Saxon Grace in the family. BIG Happy Happy!!)

Oh, and I got a Wii for my birthday and I am totally obsessed with Rayman’s Raving Rabbids.
So that’s my news – check back here for more next month – I’ll let you know if I possess a new piece of equipment! I have (drumroll please) just enabled the “comments” section of the blog – didn’t know it was disabled, but there again is my learning curve. So, dear reader, should you care to comment on my site, my work, my words, whatevah, do so – after reading your comment to be sure you are not spamming, swearing or spitting, I shall post it posthaste. (Get it, post..posthaste, ummm…. never mind. I’m off to shoot rabbids with musical plungers.)
