PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
I finally got a new rotary tool! The one DH got me for xmas kinda . . . pooped . . . out about 2 months ago, so I have been looking for a new one. Wanted the dremel stylus, but could never save the $$ (something ALWAYS came up!). I was looking at a Black & Decker (at work, they have a points program . . . ), but I was 180 point short . . . (I'm not the type to kiss butt to get extra points!) . . .
But . . . last week a new rotary tool was added to the points catalog . . . and I had the points for it! It's a Chicago Tools rotary. I've read the reviews, and checked with my father - it's is supposed to be a decent one . . . so I ordered it, and it got here today!
Now, I'm off to play with settings, so I can finish the project that's been sitting on a shelf for months!!! I can't wait to show you guys!!!
nicole, show us photos when you get a chance.. I'm anxious to work some on mine, haven't had the time lately for anything.. but hopefully will this coming month.. I'd love to see what you all are working on.
I took pictures of it the other night . . . to show where it was at prior to the walmart one conking out . . . I tried working on it last night, but my heart just wasn't in it . . .
I'm glad the Chicago brand is good . . . my father says the same thing, brigidlily. It's a little bigger than the one I had, so it is going to take some getting used to. On the lowest setting, it was faster than the old one! I'm trying to figure out a way to hold it, while I work on my project . . . hopefully, any gashes I put into it can be covered!!! ^_^
Can't wait to see your project finished. I'm a newbie to this forum, and to growing and decorating gourds, but I'm assuming you're doing some gourd art?? I've just started trying my hand at painting on gourds. LOL, I even have to use a pattern, but then my instincts take over and the finished product hardly resembles the pattern! Here's one I've recently done. My pattern was a silhouette in black! See what I mean?
PS...Now I see the lovely work you do on gourds! I love the leaves, too!!
