Oh. My. Gosh.....

I have decided to jump out of my comfort zone and just registered for this workshop.

I read an argument once about the term "self taught".  This particular author didn't like the term.  Her point of view was that nobody is really self taught.  We learn from books, the internet, watching videos, other people who work in our field etc...

I guess technically she is correct.

So I will use the term self chosen curriculum.  Ha!!  Self taught sounds much better doesn't it?  :-)

Anyway, since I have always chosen what it was I wanted to learn, all I really know is what I've decided to learn.

I bought a set of gravers about 6 months ago.  I knew I was in trouble when I wasn't even sure how to attach them to the handles!  

Luckily a metalsmith friend told me how.  (but I still don't really know what to do with them!)

I know I'll be fine once I'm in the class, but I must admit I'm anxious to step out of my comfort zone.

But I badly want to learn engraving, and I just don't have the strength to figure it out on my own. 

I am soooo excited!  :-)


  1. Wow...does that sound like fun. I love taking classes...I just wish there were more offered in my little corner of the world. When does it start? Have a great time!

  2. I can't wait to see what you make once you get the hang of it!
