yup. i jinxed myself. for three nights this week, the mini has been getting up several times a night. the first night she did it, i thought it was because she was cold. so we moved the space heater into her room and the next night she slept like a champ. the night after, i thought she was doing it because she was too hot - i had her in a thicker sleeper and her room was like a mini-sauna. sigh. okay - try again. last night, the room was not too hot and not too cold, and her sleeper was warm and comfy.

nope. woke up 4 times to eat. and not just snacking, but EATING. growth spurt? maybe. hungry? probably. but remind me not to say anything next time. (especially you, TIA!)

at least i was able to squeeze a little bit of fire out of my torch yesterday to get some orders finished. i never realized how much making jewelry helps me think clearly! oh new torch, where are you??????????


the death of the torch

>> Wednesday, October 7, 2009

after two and a half years, i've come to depend on my trusty little red butane torch. last friday, i soldered a bezel onto a band and then went to make a set of rings.

i pressed the ignition button - click. nothing. click again. nothing. click fifty more times, nothing. i got sweaty. refilled the tiny tank. tried again - nothing.


tried a couple of suppliers to see if they had it in stock - nope. i don't trust myself with a plumber's torch so that was out too. thank god for romazone, one of my favorite online suppliers. she sent out a torch right away, and was so reassuring. thank you roma, for being so amazing!!!!!!
