This is what 90 charms look like in the "during the mess" process. I finished Monday, and they're all pretty and polished and ready to go. Good thing, because our colds are getting worse and now we all have it. I'll take a photos of them when I'm feeling better. I had a little friend many years ago, and he used to say to me: "Bummersh, Dude!" Which is what I feel like saying now.

You can tell that the process is VERY messy, but I thought the mess and the grime would show up better. It is much worse and grimier in person. The flux is oily and it gets everything smeary and dirty and the process makes your hands black (and cuts burn). Good thing I got over my prissy thing, because this is nothing for the neat freak to tackle.

And I thought I'd be so embarrassed to show you the photos, but they really don't do the mess justice, so no embarrassment here. (Yikes maybe they're scarier when you click on them). Oh well.

Ok, I'm going to lay down again and try to get better. Bummersh, Dude!

    Hi Sheila!

    I've been checking out your blog ever since you sent me the link.

    Hey, I know those hearts! They look very familiar! :)

    Let me know when you list some of the heart charms on Etsy. I want to buy at least one for myself.
