I like bugs. Bugs are cool! I found this giant beetle on my porch tonight. The pictures aren't very good because I didn't have time to light him right and I just grabbed the camcorder and shot a few. Isn't he cute! He was so awesome! He was ready to fly away, so I took him back outside and let him go. He flew right back in the house! I caught him again, and this time I closed the door, and let him go. He has gone on his buggy way, but I enjoyed the visit!
I got my new tumbler today. Finally! Harbor Freight is slow with shipping, but usually cheap enough that it's worth the wait. I had fun with it today, just polishing stuff! I thought you were supposed to leave stuff in there for 6-8 hours, but no, 1-2 hours is apparently enough. That's good, because it's really hard to wait!
Now I'm waiting for my new bracelet mandrel. I found a stepped oval mandrel at Progresstools.com for $34.50. That's way cheaper than any others I've found. It's going to take a while getting here, too, because they have to make them. I'm slowly getting some jewelry tools. I've been working with whatever I could find that would work. I formed my cuffs on the back of a wooden kitchen chair! Use what ya got!
Ya'll have a great Wednesday!
