One of my favorite gifts this year came from my husband. Which I guess makes sense, but I was super excited about it.
When I first started making jewelry, I got a really cheap set of tools, just because I didn't know whether it was something I'd stick with. The idea was to upgrade as soon as it was clear that I'd be doing this for awhile, since my old tools were not exactly ergonomically designed.
I couldn't tell you why, but I just never bothered getting new tools. But I apparently complained about my old ones enough that my husband went out and bought me new ones! (He also bought me a copy of our good friend Eric's very first novel, Textual Healing - you should go order a copy!!)
I haven't had a chance to use them yet, but just holding them I can feel that they'll be a lot easier to work with.
I'm planning on giving them a go tonight, but first I'll be eating some leftover Christmas dinner.
I'll share some more photos from Christmas, as well a some of the other amazing gifts I received from the wonderful people in my life, later this week.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!
