Boy have I been busy! Now I am making jewelry. I took an online class and it was awesome.
This one is a bracelet for my niece in her high school colors. I just need to add a clasp to this one. This is done in peyote stitch which reminds me a lot of knitting. I am getting more into wire work too. It really is a lot of fun.
Next is a chain I made from jump rings I made myself. Isabella wants to learn how to do this and she can. It is quite simple. The classes are offered from Sympoz.com. I believe this month, the classes are being offered at half price which is $29. Well worth that money but I’m not so sure if I would pay more. They have a knitting class and a few crochet classes and other crafty things, as well as financial classes.
Also, I am publishing this post from my new iPad 2! Yup, thats right! My review is it’s amazing. I would go into it in more detail but I really hate typing on this little keyboard. That’s my next purchase for this, a Bluetooth keyboard so I can have all my keys and everything else I am used to. This is the only thing I don’t like. I have nearly traded in my laptop for it at this point but that has a lot to do with the fact that my laptop was broken and in the shop for 3.5 weeks and this beauty came during that time. I had learned to live without it by the time it came back. I’ll still use it for photo storing and editing but who can live without Angry Birds? I’ll type more about this when I get the keyboard I need!
