Sunday...in pictures

We cleaned, scrubbed, vacuumed,  re-organize, re-decorated, spray painted a few old picture frames so that they were ready for their new homes on the walls, and along the way I took some pictures...Oh! and I finished a nice hand full of jewelry projects yesterday, some with pictures that came out ok, and some that just refused to be photographed nicely!

Hope you had a relaxing weekend!  We played "Hawaiian Snow Day" which basically means that we allowed the continuous rain to keep us at home, busy with projects.  Yesterday was equally rainy and I spent about 8 hours in the studio, I finished 8 pairs of earrings and one necklace...I was struggling with getting my bezels to solder onto their base plates.  This was extremely annoying and I was unable to make any of the other three projects I was working on to come together past the first step.  I forsee many hours this week working on bezels, trying to perfect my skills, and sweating, and cursing, and trying to turn my frown upside down!!!!!!!  I am choosing to see this recent technical difficulty as a blessing rather than a curse, now I can focus on this one particular skill and put all my energy toward it!!!!!!  I KNOW that I will master it, I WILL be victorious!!!!!!  I will not curse at my soldering station under my breath, I will nurture my abilities and they will grow (this is me telling myself to stay positive, and not let my frustration get the best of me).

I'm off to put the finishing touches on a pair of earrings...
Have a pleasant evening!
