I think I can... I think I can ...

I can solder !!!!! I have taken several soldering classes in the past and  just could not get the hang of it!!! So I packed my tools, glass and ideas away and just accepted that that was not my thing , That isssssss..... Until Terri Brush insisted it was easy and she would show me how if I would just please be willing to try again and take a class from her. Well, I finally agreed and she was right!  I was finally shown how very easy it is  . Terri gave a simple sweet demo , provided all the right and best tools and  it just flowed... I am hooked!! When a class I take is special like this one was to me. I like to make little frames for my pieces to remind me of the classes and the  wonderful teachers that shared  their  talents  with me. These 2 little peices are in honor of Terri and what she taught me and yes I can do Shabby Chic too!!!

They'll be no stopping you now, Julie! LOL You've got another technique in your awesome bag of skills, and if these lovely pieces are any indication of what you'll be doing and where you're heading artistically, I can't wait to see more! Congrats on conquering a fear and giving soldering another try! Beautiful work!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo
