Hello again!  I bet you didn't expect me to post again so soon.  Well, I decided to tell you a few things now instead of later because some of this is kind of interesting and I'm not sure when I'll blog again.

That is IF I blog again.

Since I downloaded Window 10, I have had a bad time with Blogger and Pinterest.
Anyone else having problems ??  Some of my links are broken and I don't seem to be able to add new ones. So it looks like people may have to copy and paste for a while.

Has Pinterest changed their format?? Definitely don't like it. My name is gone and I tried to add my profile picture and that did't work either.  Oh well.

This first note may be important to new polymer clay people. About 3 weeks ago, I made some cupcakes but had no room on my baking tile so set them on a piece of styrofoam to wait for the next round of baking.  Went to find them and they were gone. And here is what happened:

There must have been some chemical reaction because they had sunk down about 1/2 " into the styrofoam.  Here's the underside of the styrofoam.
Good thing I keep my ceiling fan on all the time.

Now on to nicer stuff.

I made an easel to show of a really nice painting I'll be putting in my Mariner Shop.  I was pleased with how it turned out and it does actually fold.

I also got a new toy.

I know I'll use the magnifying glass a lot ( when I start needlepoint again) and maybe the clamps.  The clamps are very tight so I need to be careful on how I use them.  I have seen this for sale in a catalog for $17 but this one cost only $5 at a store called Harbor Freight Tools and they are nationwide.

Every now and then, I come across a blog that I like to let people know about because they make such neat stuff.  I follow all 4 of these because I like what I see.

The next two are by the same blogger.

And finally:

Well, I'm off again.  This time to watch the Olympics. My apologies that this is such an uninteresting post, but it will be better next time.

Enjoy the rest of the summer!
