my 1st



microscope slide! I have been wanting to do these for years and even told my DH to get me a soldering iron to do them. That's where I stopped because I couldn't figure out the rest. I went over to my friend Kristy's today and bless her heart she taught me how to do it and how to cut my own glass if I have to. Now I'm hooked. This is so fun but I'm going to have to wait a bit to do more as I need the flux and some more solder. The little amount they include with a new soldering iron won't last very long and I can see this becoming an addiction! LOL

Thank you for putting up with my excitement in such a simple thing! LOL
