$10 worth of supplies, 3 books (one of which I borrowed from the library), 2 minor injuries, and 8 hours later, et voila! - something I couldn't sell to a third-grader.



Sorry about the links - not bright enough to do images the real Craftster way!

I'll bet you could trade 'em to a third grader for Twinkies  Cheesy

Seriously, though, this is the way everyone's soldering starts. I say this based on my intensive study of other Craftsters' efforts made in preparation for taking the plunge myself. Just keep at it. And when I get around to ordering those microscope slides et al I will be sure to post my embarrassing first attempts.

Oh, and is the library not almost as dangerous as Craftster when it comes to emboldening oneself to try all manner of new ventures? I have even brought home a book on building your kids a treehouse and left it out on the DH's laptop table as a not-so-subtle hint for a joint project. (Note: we do not have children.)


The cats know where my Sharpie went but they ain't tellin'.

Thanks so much for the nice words, y'all.  And twinkies - hmmmm.

Yes, the library is a dangerous place!  (and I should know - I'm a librarian!)  Hope the hubby will make the treehouse.
