Mordant for Etching

Remember the Mordant for Etching I bought a few weeks ago? No, I haven't tried it yet, but a representative from Grobet, replied to my inquiries since Grobet bought out Dixon. Well here is a bit of what she replied:
This is not an item that we carry any longer. May I ask were you bought it from. The last catalog it shows up in was in 1983. All it said in the catalog was that the solution you have is for etching copper. We have no information on this item.

When I got this reply, I just started laughing.... I'll still try it, but isn't it amazing how long things get pushed back on shelves and storerooms. I guess the moral of the story is: Buyer Beware!

An Example of Laughing with Friends


On Friday, January 2, 2009, I went out with some girlfriends.  I haven't done this in a very long time and.... I had a good time!  I look forward to doing it more often too! 

January is Love Yourself Month!

I was reading Ga'hoole Tree`s blog  [gahooletreedesigns_blogspot_com]  and saw that January is Love Yourself Month.  I think this is a good idea, but I think EACH month should be Love Yourself Month. 

Why do we beat ourselves up for things out of our control?  I think that all we can do, is do our best and accept and learn from the outcome.  Oh, and Laugh out Loud.  At ourselves, objects, animals.  That`s my goal for this year.  Live, Love and Laugh!

Its Friday, Again!

I’m using Windows Live Writer to prepare this post. 

Home Sweet Home
Since I have nothing stellar to write about at this time, I’m showing an aerial view of where I live…. It is so beautiful in the summer time.  Across the road is the gravel pit and to the east is the swamp.  I sure do like living hear.
