and the french fairies make a grand debut

Let’s start the new year right, shall we?

I bought the new Somerset Studio yesterday. The ‘aubergine’ issue.

Please turn to page 114.

My little French fairies! They look wonderful, don’t they? Very nice (big!) photograph.

I also like the artwork underneath, by Eileen Terhaar Clark. La Danse des Papillons. Lovely!

I will take this as a harbinger of what is to come. I’m really excited for this year. I expect good things to come my way, certain things/situations in my life to improve, lots of personal growth, and I think this will be the best year of my life.

And yes, learning to solder is (again) one of my goals.

I also bought the Dec/Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry.

I skimmed through it and it looks great. I saw a couple techniques I thought were really cool – particularly the earrings on the cover, where the artist used a wire form to create a resin-filled bezel. I would love to try resin some day (I should add that to my list!) and it’s so clever to use wire to form the bezel.

must use gift cards immediately.
I received a Michael’s gift card for Christmas so of course I had to use it immediately. One of the things I bought was this cool set of clear stamps by Tim Holtz.

I was surprised to see that Michael’s had a nice selection of Tim Holtz products. I like his line of art stuff – he always has interesting and different supplies. I particularly like his inks and glitter glues. As soon as I saw these stamps I knew I had to have them. I love that chandelier!

I hope this new year brings all sorts of wonderful things for everyone!
