    Uhhh Wimmin Listening......Oh Ho Ho Ho..... fairy stories.

    Uhhh Wimmin Listening......Oh Ho Ho Ho..... fairy stories.

    It's taken 3 years of hard work to get mine to dance on the end of her leash when I wind the organ handle.

    But what the ****, she works for peanuts.




    Seriously tho.. I am "encouraging" mine to do a basic welding certificate at the local Industrial College. (TAFE - Technical and Further Education - in Australia).

    On one hand she is really clever and picks up ideas and techniques so fast... but on the other side she is FN NON ambitious and a supreme excuse maker...


    A few more years and a few more peanuts.....

    LOL

(Im not admitting how I learned this) Janet, we all hope to see more of your creations in the future. I, for one, appreciate creativeness as I have none but wish I did. I cant go from the abstract to reality very well. Id hope you had a lonesome sister or widowed/divorced mom or ??? also. Thanks for letting us see your work! Bill
    sadly i do have to admit to that at least for myself cause i dont want to listen i just want to make somethen!

    I showed her the post before I even read it. At first I was called a jerk, and other names..but anyways. She read all your post and was suprised at your comments.

    When I first met her she said she was artistic and I asked if she ever did it with metal, she said no, I can't. I said yeah you can watch! I am not artistic but I can fix and make just about anything. I just can't think about the art stuff.

    We were at the shop today and she was messing with bending ss wire in heart shapes and made something really cool. I hope I opened up the artistic side that has been bottled up for a while. I don't care about sharing my stuff! It's all a good way to get/justify more space!

    Someday I hope I can justify a plasma cam!

    Thanks again. She may be posting on this subject herself. She did get a kick about the sister question.

    Hey Janet,
    We all understand about thought and time As my first gate project took me much longer than I had anticipated, like all the guys said, it'll get faster as we do more...
    good job!

    Her creativity and carry thru are very good. She shows the signs of becoming a metal artist.

    She should get her own screen name so she can come and chat with us. Since she's new to welding maybe she should get one on the ask andy site too. That way she can get more welding related advice, that way she can get good enough at welding to do stuff out of exotic metals such as copper, aluminum or SS. Those could allow her to do some REALY neat things, especialy the copper.

    P.S. Great looking art, keep it coming!

    Mike,
    It's too cool that you are helping your girlfriend open up her artistic talents.
    Please remind her when she gets famous and rich, who helped her get there Maybe she'll buy you (or share with you) her new Dynasty 300dx
    Any shows that she can display her stuff at, like I mentioned to fun4now, will get her name out. They may not want to buy what she has right there, but when they or their boss gets ideas, they'll know who they can go to, to make it

    Hey! It's Mike's Girlfriend...

    First of all, I want to thank all you guys for being so very humble and gracious. And I really mean that!

    When ever I found out Mike posted my moon 'n stars, I could have killed him, but as I read all your comments, I thought, what a great forum, it doesn't matter how good the product is, it's the thought and time put into it that's appreciated. That's awesome!

    I read along with Mike every day and like the fact that every one here seems to help each other out and give each other ideas and what not. It's very inspiring to me. It's not that often that you find a great site like this one.

    Thanks again for the posative feed back, and also for a great place to come and read and feel at home! - Janet

    I showed my girlfriend your post and now all of a sudden she's in the shop looking thru the scrap bin wanting to make something. This is the first time in the three years she has walked into the shop let alone shown any real interest in what I do (other than collect the money). Tell your girlfriend thanks for showing her artistic side as it has gotten mine interested as well. Dave
    P.S. nice job on the project.

    Nice art work

    It always nice to see other artist on this site. I like your girl friend's work, I call my self an artist and would be proud if I had made that. I'm sure she will get even better if she keeps going. But your scrape pile may never be 'yours' again.

    Does she have a sister?
    Heck, "do you have a good relationship???"
    JUST KIDDING
    (Oh wait, I'm married... )
    Very cool, she should make a few more stuff like that and try to sell it at the craft show (mother's day is too soon), maybe Christmas???
    I polish my aluminum with a really cool swirl pattern using the flap disk or the scotch-brite pad that sticks to the rubber backing pad...
