Almost missed a week
My plan to blog every week for the whole month of March almost fell through. I almost missed this week. 😬 But I remembered today. I will get the blog thing down, I know it.
Free Shipping Sale ends soon. Get your mother something that is unique as her or maybe your best friend's birthday is coming up. Or why not just spoil yourself and get something you would love. Go ahead, treat yo self.
I've been busy making new guitar string bracelets. I stopped making these a few years ago because they were difficult and frustrating for me to make.
I solder each one by hand to make sure they are tough enough for everyday wear. I by no means am an expert at soldering, but I get by. Now if you have ever worked with guitar strings you know they kinda have a mind of their own. So trying to hold them in a bracelet shape and solder was frustrating to say the least. So I gave up. I know, I can't believe I just gave up, it's not like me.
Then I was contacted by someone to ask if I still made these. She told me she really loved how mine looked and would love to order one as a gift. So I got out my soldering iron. Problem was, my soldering iron decided to crap out. I mean not even warm up a little bit (Que trombone sounds here). Well after doing a little bit of research I ordered myself a brand new soldering station. Oh yeah. No more cheap soldering iron from the hardware store. A full fledged soldering station.
This changed my life. It heats up instantly, so no more waiting for that. I holds it's heat better. It takes me minutes to solder instead of a half an hour. So I can focus on the fun parts of making these.
I have been making them like crazy and will be listing them soon in my NEW Etsy shop. I've decided to open a second (and possibly third) Etsy shop to keep everything separate and more convenient for you, the shopper, to find things. So keep and eye open for my new shops.
