After our soldering class, we purchased a soldering iron and began having fun at home.
Check out my daughter’s creations at her blog.
My son even got in on the act.
Here’s my creation for the evening. I found the adorable little squirrels in an old children’s tale of Snow White. We tried our hand at soldering marbles and found it to be quite easy. The most difficult step for me is adding the jump rings. Practice.
Each day, we look forward to working on another project. Guess what my family is getting this year for gifts!
The Purge Stuff Challenge ends tomorrow. I am happy to say that a good habit has been formed. Each day I search for something to purge, and seems like there is an endless source. The basement should keep me busy for quite awhile. Purging has become a good thing, rather than a dreaded chore. It’s become more like a treasure hunt. I’ll continue to post the fun things I find.
In an effort to form another good habit, I am joining in the Fifth Annual Art Every Day Month at Creative Every Day. From Creative Every Day’s sidebar:
Rules are simple: Make art every day for the month of November, post it on your blog if you can, and have fun with it! Art is loosely defined here, just be creative in any way your heart desires (painting, collage, doodle, drawing, clay, poem, video, music, knitting, whatever!) Even if you just make art every week or once this month, the goal is simply to bring more creativity into your life. Feel free to join in the fun! Be an Everyday Creative, Be Creative Every Day!
Perhaps I’ll get that quilt done, and get some very fun Christmas gifts made. In my world, creativity extends to the kitchen and beyond, so I’m hoping to get even more creative with my cooking as well. Sound like fun to you? Jump on in.
