Just wanted to share something awesome with everyone. Last spring, I needed a new prescription for my glasses so I found SwapEyewear and they are totally awesome. The sliders, on the arms of the frames, are changeable. Not only are there tons of designs to choose from but you can make your own. I've been in contact with them and they are very customer satisfaction oriented. I lost a nose piece and they are sending me a set free of charge. I took the time to photograph all the new sliders I got this week. So far, the reactions are very positive. I also wanted to mention that the frames are metal free. They have different ones but I got the"all plastic" ones. Z sometimes grabs them and gives them a good chuck. The only time I had a problem with them was when Z accidentally sat on them and I misplaced the nose piece.
Lulu came by the shop (that's where I work) and while I was prep-ing made a spreader from some maple. It came out really well. From start to finish I think it took about 20 minutes to make. She needed to use a rasp and files and sandpaper. The belt sander helped and the buffer finished it off really nice. We are thinking that it might be something we should look into selling. It looks and feels really nice.
Here is a question to all the readers: If you were interested in wooden spreaders for butter or other shmears; how much would you spend on this spreader (6 1/2 inches)?
lulu & mika craft and make many beautiful items. Always creating and working together.
