Wrapping up...

I'm almost done! I've been working the past week on redesigning my business cards, banners, avatars, etc. So I'll very soon be revamping everything, including my website.

Tomorrow I am back in my workshop, which is exciting because I have a new piece of equipment I can start working with. We bought a rolling mill a few weeks ago and it just came in a few days ago. It is a really heavy piece of equipment and Norbert needs to reinforce the end of one of my worktables for it to sit on. So a rolling mill will allow me to do a number of really exciting things. I can make my own sizes and types of wire, but more importantly I can make impressions on metal using any number of objects. I'll take a picture of my new rolling mill this week along with pieces of work that I make using it. I am very excited :)

One other quick note because I am on my way to the gym and I'm late! is that I just found out I was nominated for an award over at Poppytalk. It is in the handmade jewelry category and can be located here.

I am thrilled that someone nominated me.....Poppytalk is well known in the handmade world. I don't care if only my mom and sister vote for me (okay, okay I'd love for you to vote for me too ;) just the fact that people are taking notice of my work is an absolute honor!!

I'll be back with new work this week....bye! ;)
