I’ve had a lot of brain dead weekends lately. I know I should be a lot more productive than I am, but all I want to do is lie on the couch and watch something on Netflix. The puppies and kittens don’t seem to care much as they like the company, and honestly I don’t feel too guilty about it.
Until I go back to work and I remind myself of all the stuff I should have done, but didn’t.
Sundays are usually my most productive day. Tomorrow I work on some more hats. Things change and I’m trying to roll with it. Much easier than trying to fight it or control it.
I test drove another pair with smaller ear wires the other day:
Can you tell the difference? It may be hard to do in photos. The top photo has much larger ear wires that make the earrings more swingy
Yes, that is a word
The bottom photo has smaller ear wires. Not as swingy, these wires really hug the ear lobes. Neither ear wire is better than the other, in my view, just a personal preference.
I think I’ll use the smaller ear wires on larger earrings, and the large ear wires on the smaller earrings. Large earrings are already swingy, and I don’t want the ear wires to take away from the beauty of the earring. Small earrings can use extra swing, adding more character.
That my husband got me. They work just fabulously on the heavier gauge metal. It doesn’t take as many blows to flatten the metal. The smaller hammer does well with the smaller gauge metal and turns things flat in seconds. Most awesome.
I’m learning to be ambidextrous too. I favor my right, but that hand tends to get tired quickly using these heavy hammers. I’m getting better at it, but I can still see the difference in the markings from right to left hand. Kind of funny.
