Silver Fusing Workshop

What a great workshop I took yesterday through our PMC Guild. Anne Mitchell is here this weekend teaching to our guild members for 2 days. The second class is today and I wish I could be there to make more chain - if you don't know Anne's work, visit her site:
What is cool is that she is very environmentally friendly when doing her work. She doesn't use solder in the class we took and she is very against pickle solution - this is right up my alley!

Anyway, here are some pics from the class

Here is the the chain I made, I really, really like doing this!

And, of course, my little guy was happy when I got home - here is the toggle part of the chain - the close up pic didn't turn out so good. I'll try to get a couple better pics taken when there's some good sunlight out...

Hope the second class has as much fun as I did yesterday - thanks again Anne!

Carpe Diem!

I am back on my Love Dare! Some horrible news for a family I don't even know prompted me to get right back on and don't give up.

The fiance of a guy I work with just lost her 40 yr old sister. This woman's husband found her on the bathroom floor in a pool of blood. She either had a seizure or an aneurysm and hit her head. This happened Easter morning. Yesterday, Craig, who I work with left to go to the hospital to be with his fiance while they took her off of life support. This poor woman has a 6 and 10 yr old. I couldn't help but cry for this family, so young and unexpected.

You guys (and gals), life is way too short - I'm sorry this post is such a downer, but it affected me so greatly. Don't waste any of your days! Do what matters to you every day! Tell your family and friends you love them and how much they mean to you! Be the best you can be every single day - CARPE DIEM!!!
