I went out to lunch with Dave (the husband) today. It was nice getting out of the house. Lately it seems like I've been so busy that I haven't left the studio in weeks. The whole time we were out though, I had so many ideas running through my head. We went to Chili's- maybe it was the refried beans.

We also bought the dogs some new toys. I picked one and Dave picked one. They like mine better. :)

I went to the hardware store to buy a hammer. I didn't find a hammer, but I found a cool buffing kit for my flexshaft, a new file, and some new drillbits. The old man behind the counter looked at me funny buying tools with my blue streaked hair. It was like he thought I'm building a really well-polished bomb. Funny little man!

So when I got home, I tried a few things. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised with the way my projects turned out. I've flame oxidized copper before, but I thought it would be cool to have a piece of copper shaped like a flame- and then flame oxidize it. I've never considered myself much of a "Pen and Paper" artist, but the flame shape I drew came out pefect! It looks so cool! I also made a pair of earrings that came out really nice. They started as something I was going to build around a stone for a pendant- but it turned into earrings. When I look at them I think of two different things- origami, and a throwing star. So I named them "Origami Throwing Star Earrings". I couldn't choose just one. :)

No injuries today! So all in all- it was a really good day!
