    Well as long as he's improving, that's what's important. I hope the future news is nothing but good news ^_^

    Announcing ~ 50 New Items

    Yay! More stainless doughnuts! I've taken quite a liking to those. They may be simple but they can add such a nice touch to so many things.

    new to the forum, thought i would show my work.

    OK, the cat claw protectors for the sofa was pretty clever, looks pretty cool too, just imagine that on a nice black leather sofa! Welcome to the forums, you'll soon come to learn that we're a bunch of loose rings sometimes.

    Horst the Hippopotamus

    You have managed to create a hybridization of leather working, quilting, chain maille and bondage by the looks of this. For some reason it highly amuses me at 5 in the morning.

    Help with getting into events

    I make a lot of use of this site to find fairs and expos in my area. . .then there's also the invites I get for shows (Which I wasn't expecting but I'm not about to complain) http://www.fairsandfestivals.net/ Just put in your zip code and what you're looking for and it gives you a list complete with the website for the fair if available. Highly, HIGHLY valuable little search tool in my opinion.

    One night of insomnia + effective pain meds so I can keep working = this.

    I'll add a third to that motion. My younger parrot, Lucia, my little sun conure, has allergies to some foods. Most people don't realize that birds can indeed have allergies but they do. With Lucia it's mostly corn products, she can have a little but not much at all. It use to be a lot worse when she was really little but she's grown a little more tolerant, likely due to the fact she keeps stealing corn products from me when I try to eat them. Another thing a lot don't think about is environmental allergies. Again, I have this issue with Lucia (then again the poor girl is a special needs birdy) when it comes to dust and dander. If there's too much of either in the house she will start sneezing her little head off and her nose will start running, a very, VERY bad thing for a parrot due to the angle of their nostrils. Due to that we need air purifiers in the house, non-ionic types since those ionic purifiers aren't healthy for birds to begin with. Be it diet, allergies or even quirks, if you want to give your feathered, furred or scaled family member a good life you have got to pay attention to such things. You brought them into your home, they are totally dependent on you, if they are given and exposed to things that is not healthy for them then the blame falls on you so learn these things and adapt to them, not the other way around. Tupperware Party: I hope your cat's health improves, at least you realized it before it was too late and when there may still be time to reverse some of the damage.

    For those of you who like to maille in bed...

    See, I only maille while sitting on the bed, and even then I've managed to pass out while mailling >_> Those may be a good idea for me to invest in though, more light on the rings never hurts when you can hardly see to begin with.

    Byz and solid SS ring necklace

    It was just a simple idea but I love how it actually came out! AA with SS solid rings and clasp w/adjustable clasping chain (What else do you call that?)

  10. So, I just got an invite to a large expo at a reduced booth fee because of my chain maille. It's on Oct. 5th. . .injured arm or not I cannot pass this up. I'm going to be hurting like hell while working but it should all be worth it in the end.

  11. So, even with a messed up hand (entrapped ulnar nerve) my crazy self is still mailling. . .it's hurting like hell to do but I'm doing it. Gotta keep the muscles from atrophying somehow. . .

    Securing your product at fairs

  13. Girlfriend just had surgery today. Fell sick this morning, she went to the ER and only about 4 hours later they had her in surgery for her appendix. Visited her earlier, she seems OK but gonna ave to be careful when she comes home. First few days is critical for proper recovery.

    Digital credit card processing

    Ah yea, know what ya mean there. Sounds like a stolen card, likely what you suspected as well. Certainly a good reason to be thorough about checking said cards.

    Securing your product at fairs

    Don't have gold and silver yet here but yea, those are most certainly going to be put in a case and that case will be secured to something big and heavy. Thankfully it seemed people were still able to try on items without them being detached from the displays (they were bracelets) so that worked out. Gonna have to figure out a good method for the necklaces I'm gonna have next round but I'm sure I can figure something out.
