New tools!

 I finally got the chance to take a soldering class! This was a birthday gift to me. I took a soldering class with the amazing Sally Jean! We made a music box and I called it "My Babe music box". 
Across from me was Margo Beatty a friend of a friend that I met twice and having her there made me really comfortable. Margo has invented a gadget that I LOVE! and I think all solderer should have. I purchased one from her in class and yesterday I used it. It makes your life so much easier. Holds bubbles in place or boxes charms. Way cool Margo! I am ordering a couple more for my next soldering class and you should too.
