Simple Formed Pendant Tutorial With Steel Forming Block

Simple Formed Pendant Tutorial With Steel Forming block

On March 21st I announced Free Steel Forming Block - The Create A Tutorial Exchange Program With Evie's Tool Emporium Winners Are Bleubeard & Elizabeth and Studio Dax. Today I am thrilled to share with you the tutorial that Randi from StudioDax created. Randi is a very talented artist that we are thrilled to partner with. Her tutorial can be seen on her StudioDax Blog. Thank you Randi for sharing your talent with us.

I would also like to thank Dotty from dottyral who came up with the idea of The Create A Tutorial Exchange Program. Randi's tutorial will also be posted on Totally Tutorials along with many other tutorials from The Create A Tutorial Exchange Program.

I enjoyed Randi's tutorial and hope you will too! Randi utilized our steel forming block to create this wonderful simple formed pendant. In addition to the steel forming block we also carry the following items at Evie's Tool Emporium that Randi used in her tutorial: automatic center punch, rawhide mallet, and a copper disc. To stamp "Diva" on the fourth simple formed pendant we carry a 1.5 mm metal stamping set. Enjoy the tutorial!

Safflower Power Yogurt

In my attempt to eat a more healthy diet I have been on a mission to introduce new foods to my diet. I recently tried Safflower Power Yogurt from Old Home and it was delicious!

Safflower Power yogurt is the the first yogurt in the United States made with CLA, derived from natural safflower oil and clinically shown to help increase muscle tone and reduce body fat. This delicious yogurt is naturally sweetened, glutten free and contains no high-fructose corn syrup.

I tried the red raspberry which I found had the perfect blend of raspberry. In addition the flavors include: banana-mango, strawberry, black cherry, blueberry, pomegranate-blueberry, marionberry and peach.

If you are looking for a new yogurt I would highly recommend Safflower Power!
