A time to play

The mad Christmas rush is over! A little time to relax and play with new toys that Santa brought me. Among the toys I received the book "Pretty Little Things" and my very own soldering iron. After getting a few lessons in "How to solder without setting ones self on fire" and a bit of practice I seem to have the basics under control. Haven't even opened the book yet. I plan to dissect it cover to cover while lying in bed tonight and hope to come up with some ideas of things I would like to make. I am mostly interested in making "parts" and charms to incorporate in my figures, but thought I'd like to make a charm bracelet or two for myself and for a few special people. This is something I have wanted to experiment with for years now. Seems ridiculous that it has taken me this long to get around to it.

enjoy yours and good luck with the soldering. i don't know if i'll be that brave.
