June 2nd...I love summer. Being an art teacher has definite bonuses. Look for a significant growth spurt in my shop, and feel free to ask for better descriptions and additional photographs.

May 15th...Look at me! Look at me! I've been featured in TrendHunter.com , and I'm totally psyched! I am now a single technical difficulty away from posting my first presentable levitation apparatus using the magic of Bismuth. Expect it within a week.

As of April 27 - It turns out that putting solid bismuth with a littler water on it into a bath of molten bismuth is like dropping a frozen turkey into hot grease. It blows up in your face. Hahahaha. Hey, how do you know you've lived hard enough if you've never gotten 3rd degree burns or awaken in a body cast?
This cost me 5 minutes worth of bandages, a little cussing, and I'm back on track…
