How the economy has hit me
I am sitting here watching CSI Miami while trying to type one of my papers for my reading cohort. I am taking a break during the show so I know what is going on. I cannot believe the state of our country. Most of you know that I am a technique junkie. I like to try new things. I may like it and keep doing it or I might not. I sometimes like something but only enough to do it a couple of times. Recently, I had gotten an email about a local place having some metalsmithing and PMC classes. I have been wanting to try a beginner PMC class to see if I like doing it. It would go well with my love for assembling stuff to make art jewelry. I thought about it until I saw the price of the workshop. I thought beyond the workshop. I thought about the price of the silver clay. I thought about maybe needing a kiln even though a torch would probably work. It ended up being too expensive for me to consider right now. Daughter's birthday around the corner, son's birthday in a couple of months, and Xmas around the corner. Hate it when I am not selfish. Cannot treat myself when things are tight all over. I know that workshops and stamper/art stores must be feeling the pinch right now. The CSI Miami episode tonight is really good!
