    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.

    Default 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

    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

    Talking

    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!

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

    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!

    Default Janet welds!!

    If pressed, I think most guys here will agree that most women with the same experience, are better welders than most guys. Reason being, is that they listen to what instructions they are being told and are more willing to ask questions on how, why, how do I do this. Most guys dont want to admit any sort of ignorance and wont adapt easily to new ideas or instruction. (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

    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.
