I'm in Heaven!

Some of you may know that I cut cabochons, (well not lately ..) I have been saving for a new Diamond Pacific Genie...in catalogs they are 1900 to 2200 dollars...Well I found one on eBay,YES eBay...

So I investigated, checked feedback...waited for a few days a VIOLA' I got a coupon from eBay for 10% off my next purchase..up to $100!

I thought a hundred bucks! WOWSER a hundred bucks!!!!!!! I investigated a little more and purchased my Genie from ronsrocks .. let me tell you ... the coupon paid for my shipping plus a little more!
Ronsrocks got it shipped to me the SAME day! It was on it's way..WHHOOOO HOOOO!!!

I was distracted today! (YA THINK???)

When Genie arrived just before 4 o'clock I set it right up...proceeded to shape and cut cabs...It was so nice to have a functional machine..I do have a really old Lortone arbor .. I'll turn it into a polisher!

I took a break and fed hubby and the dog, (they were grateful!) dinner. Hubby thought that perhaps he would have to finish cooking!
After dinner it was back to my studio! I cut and polished away the evening!
Cleaned up my machine ... time to rest for tomorrow..

I'm wrapping cabs tomorrow for Ladies Night out on the20th, for some truly handcrafted wire pendants!

WHOO HOO!!!!
