I was busy this weekend! I had a customer request a tiny squirrel and a tiny cupcake, so I etched some other new drawings while I was at it. I got Sherri Haab's electronic etching kit before the end of the year and was hoping to make the switch to using that instead of Ferric Chloride, but it's requiring more experimentation than I have time for right now. I broke down and bought another gallon of Ferric Chloride, which lasts me about a year. I do hope to get the electronic etching sorted out (as well as the light sensitive resist film, that was a complete disaster!) but for now I need to get things done, so I've gone back to the tried and true method. Everything pictured here is currently available at my Etsy shop.

My Grandma Paulina saw everyone's birthday wishes and is very touched! She would like to say thank you to everyone, it really meant a lot to her to have so many people from all around the world wish her a happy birthday. The Chicago weather cooperated and she had a great day (the photo is from her celebration yesterday). I think I can safely say that we all hope to look as good as she does when we are 99!

My amazing grandma Paulina is 99 today! She still lives by herself and cooks great food and makes yummy Christmas cookies. She was born in the small town of Triebswetter, in what was then Austria-Hungary and is now Romania. She came to the USA with my Grandpa in the 30's, and was very fortunate to have got out before the communists took over. She has 2 daughters, 5 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and 1 great, great grandchild! Happy birthday grandma - we love you!
