Frankie,

Your new cutters are really sleek! When are you passing through Champaign next?

Hugs,

Billie

Outstanding! (about having sold the set)...can't wait to see what's next...you should have an opening reception that is just one big pizza party ;)

On another, but related note, have you ever soldered aluminum? I've read it's possible and smallparts.com even sells a kit supposedly, but I've heard it's really difficult and not that great of results...just wondering if you've ever played with it or know someone who has.

About time!...just kidding, I'm sure you've been plenty busy. I love the new pieces though...those long, exaggerated necks are great. Do you have an image with a hand holding one...just for the sake of scale?

Hi Frankie. We had a good holiday. I'm happy to not have to go back to teaching for another week. The boys are back in school. We are enjoying our new puppy, "Balta." She is an all black cocker. Sooooooooo cute. Noah would love her. Happy New Year to you and Jill and Noah. I hope 2009 is an improvement over 2008. Hey, post a picture of a cutter instead of your portrait. Maybe I can get all U of I folks to do the same! Hugs, Billie

Dear Frankie:

Welcome to crafthaus ! I am very glad you joined us and I see that the 2 Roses already beat me to the punch in welcoming you :-) !

There is always a lot of activity on the site, so it's great that you uploaded some images of your artwork already. Many of your fellow artists will be getting to see what you are doing and I am sure you will get some great feedback.

Please feel free to add your comments to the blog/discussion topics that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.

I really hope you will enjoy being with this network and find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me anytime. I will do my best to be of help.

Again: Welcome !

Rabbits, Glass Sheep, Ada Lovelace and Virginia Woolf in Hindi

The main event this week has been completing my watch and chain for the ACJ exhibition "Sleight of Hand". The last element to be completed was the fitting of a glass to the 1838 silver watch-case which was the catalyst for the whole piece and I found an incredible place in Kent where, for a very modest fee, a traditional thick, bevelled mineral-glass was cut to fit, polished and fitted. (Anyone else requiring this service should contact "Crystalfit":…See More
