I don't know if you watch Dr. Phil or not (I have it on for noise most days, but don't actually watch it) but today he did a show all about saving money! I guess we can all do a little bit of that! There was one segment I found interesting. Frugal Coupon Mom has a blog dedicated to helping you organize, find, print and use coupons to save money at the store. The reason I mention it is, the more money you save, the more beads you can buy! So start saving! Have a great day! It was too cold to torch in the basement today - hopefully tomorrow I can get to the orders I have. And by the way ladies, thanks for the orders!
Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!
