I am thinking that for our first year.... I will give away a book..... I will not just give away ANY BOOK! I will give away a nice out of print book. The book is used and it will be TOTALLY FREE! (Even the shipping) =) Because I am AWESOME! However..... This book will ONLY be given to those who are subscribed to my blog. I will send an email to the subscribers a week before July the 6th (first post ever) and let you know how this will work. If you already have this book then let those who do not have it have a chance to win it =)
Here is a review I did a few months on this book. If interested.... the subscribe and stay tuned!
GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!

This is one of my favourite pieces. It was done by one of my good friends and one of the best engravers in the world. Mr. Zoltan Viczan. I love this piece because it is simple and delicate and the hands are beautifully engraved. It is simply breath taking.

Here is a photo, for those of you who like to engrave roses. I found this photo on line, flipped it ( I normally engrave intaglio so my photos have to be the opposite way when I trace them on to the glass) and then sketched it on my iPhone with an app called "sketch me" (which we have talked about before. Here is the info about this app on the blog:
Well here is the photo! I hope you like it =)
Also want to say "thank you" to the visitors from France, Germany, Malta, Spain, Russia and so many other countries! I really appreciate it =) Thank you all
