New Years Resolution Gone Broke

Yep, I should not have made it - I really didn't think I would keep it. Some people are soo good at keeping their blogs updated - not me. Nope, I do not think updating once every few months or so is cutting it. Do you know that perhaps the reason is because I do not like my  images? That's right, I do not like them. I visit some blogs, and the layout and the images are great! I just cannot seem to get a grip on the lay out of this blogging thing. Oh, but I can create a website and I do a pretty good job with it too. Yet a blog? Forget it.

Do you have something you just love and you open your drawer and it's sitting there just smiling at you - waiting for you? I wish that's how my blog page is! Well, until then I make no promises, yet I will put more effort into my blog :)

My Etsy Shop

Getting Started: One day I saw a bracelet that inspired me to make jewelry. It was this one. I thought I could do that. I set out and went to several thrift stores for the remainder of the week. I spread the word to my family members about my new "venture". Surprisingly enough, I had a lot of support and had received a nice collection of goods from family and some great finds. I had no idea what I was doing, but I was having a great time putting it all together. I then bought a soldering gun and tried soldering - um, my soldering was crude and I am now embarressed for my early metal work. I still have a wonderful collection and am always on the lookout for great interesting items to add to it.
