I am learning my jewelry making skills outside the US where gauge is metric. I make all my own materials including wire. I would love to be able to know the wire gauge I am using to start making tutorials. Sadly, I can't seem to find a chart.
I used to do very modern pieces with crisp lines. And while I still love that look lately, I have been leaning towards the rustic and organic. Actually, I have been crazy into organic pieces lately and this is my latest -
The stone is CZ. Maybe the next one will be with a more expensive stone.
Someone has already offered to buy it. But can I part with it? Sigh.
Twice I week I have class and don't get home until 7:30 pm. When I get back my hubby is always hungry and I am short on time patience for cooking. So I have started making crockpot oatmeal. So tasty, so easy, so cheap and oh so healthy too.
2 cups oatmeal (do not use the quick cook kind) 6 cups water handful of craisins handful of raisins a pinch of salt a cinnamon stick freshly grated nutmeg
Put in on low and about 7-9 hours later you have a yummy meal. Sometimes I add mashed banana or nuts.
Sometimes losing focus for even a single second can lead to ruin. Case in point, my coconut pie crust. I am feeling a little under the weather and tried to rush. Rather than scoop out the beans I tried jiggling them out at a slight angle.....can anyone guess what happened? I jiggled a GIANT chunk of the pie crust out causing a break that only got worse as I tried to fix it until the whole thing ended up on my counter.
