Where do I start... this is really a challenge when I sit to write these posts. I wonder what matters.
I haven't received my new (refurbished) computer tower yet, so all those questions are still passing through my mind... over and over and over and over again... I keep wondering if I will need until Christmas to get it to operate! :-)
I saw an exercycle on a Habitat ReStore post today... no mention of the price. I wondered if it worked.
There were some great videos on YouTube to watch... I'm looking for one thing and find a bunch of other topics. I am finding it so amazing how different each presenter is.
I found a guy sharing how to screen print t-shirts and he explained it so good... pretty much, anyway. His name was ....something... Carmichael. I think the video was from 2012, or something in the past like that. He showed how to do the emulsion the best I have seen so far. Now I want to get some of the real stuff and try it out. He actually used sheer curtan material for his screen. That will be interesting to try.
I found the most amazing t-shirt artist that works with little cones of color and fancy lettering shapes. I was so very glad to see that one... I never would have thought it was even possible. I save the video to my account, but don't recall her name. I can still see it in my mind... I can't wait to try that!
What else did I like... well, I think I want the BROTHER Scan-n-cut 2 for my crafting space... and one of the die cutting machines I have seen. They will really help me create my original designs. Julie Fei Fan Balzar was acting as the spokesperson for them, demonstrating a lot of the different details of owning and using them. She is the hostess of MAKE IT ARTSY, a program I found on OPB here in Portland. I try to watch it when I can. That is where I saw the PROXXON hobby machines for woodworking.
Got the little bag sealer finally. It has NO ENGLISH on the package :-) so I had to figure out the right size of batteries and how to make them fit. It wasn't too hard, but I did think it funny. We get so spoiled. I often wonder how hard it is for people who don't speak english here... and how terrible it would be for me in another country.
Once I did get the batteries in the right way, it was like instant HOT! I will try it out on a bag soon. Maybe this will be my answer to portion control! (Not likely. haha) I will say I was truly amazed at how quickly two small AA batteries got that sealing metal hot. I think I might be tempted to buy another set. Maybe another brand to see the differences.
Now that I have a bunch of my food making supplies, I may get to making some of the items I hope to sell in time. I need to work out a record system to know what products I get and where I get them... so I can order more of the items I like. :-)
I continue to pray for GOD's mercies on my finances, so I can move my dreams along a bit faster, feel more secure, and get the space I need to function... and all the equipment that is required. PRAY for me.
That's about all for now.
Until next time,
May the GOD of all send just a little bit of the universe my way. Thanks. Amen. :-)
PS - I guessed on some of the links above (OPB and BROTHER)... :-)
