I'm so excited to try this.

And I can't believe you used a Romanian stamp! I'm completely obsessed with Romania.

i got my package from scrapalatte!! delivery was sooo fast!!! ok im gonna bust this sucker out..any helpful hints?
my hints
 - don't hurry.  tiny projects deserve precision.   
-  have a fan blowing some fresh air in. 
 - have fun.  be crafty.

my mom squished tiny flowers -  forget-me-nots -  and made the most impossibly small and adorable bit of cuteness...

I'm so excited to try this.

is that what posta romana means?  I wondered.  I have so many stamps that say that...  they are my favorite...  all so crisp...wonderful... monochromatic...  itty bitty works of art...

That is fabulous.

I wish I could make one..unfortunately, the last time I ventured near a soldering iron (electronics class last year) I ended up with an ugly grey gash on my hand.

Huh. Some best friend SHE was.

what sort of wattage are most of you using?
i can choose, from 40, 60, 80, 100 watts and I'm unsure which one to get?

the power tool chick in me is drawn to the 100
but the 'i burn easily' chick in me is thinking about 60

The soldering iron I have is 100 watt.  The lower wattage irons are usually more for electronics and things that have thinner solder with lower melting points (I think).  I know lead-free solder melts at a higher temperature than the normal 60/40 solder used in leaded glass, so if you use lead-free I'd definitely go for the higher power one.  The lower wattage irons might not get hot enough to give you a good bead.

Just my 2 cents.  I'm no expert, by any means, so do some research--and watch out for your fingers, whichever one you get!  Grin
