Paperweight Build and Auction

PW-06

Maybe I just had some bad fish last night. Maybe my blurry eyesight made me grab the wrong pills this morning or maybe I was abducted by aliens last night and they did experiments to enhance my emotions. Either way, I got on BilletSPIN this morning, read a bunch of messages and scrolled down the group. Then I gots this feeling welling up deep from within. I cant keep in inside anymore, I got to let you know

I luvs you all. What a group of amazing people. I want you all to know this is so much more than just a business. I am there for you if you ever need to chat, if you have a issue with a top or are going through a hard time and just need to vent.

The hardest part right now for me is the busyness of it all. This change we made has created a ton of work temporarily for me. Once I get the new system in place it will free up some time. I hate that I can’t get back to people right away but I will get that resolved in the next few months.

Thanks for riding along with me on this amazing journey. I am heading in this morning to make some more tops. Have an amazing weekend and thanks again for your friendship and support 😀

I thought about it a lot but the way the facets come together look really cool in person. I did not want to remove that

I have to clean the coolant residue off or it wont etch uniformly. We have solvent tanks for that and it seemed to work pretty good
