snaps and a big hole in the ground

margene is forever posting pictures of her beautiful utah. so i thought i'd give you all a little peek at what lies 20 minutes outside my front door.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park

look - humph! my G crystallite snapped right in half snapped
because it broke on the flat grippy part, not all is lost...it is pink- my most favorite color and a hook- my most favorite obsession... so i am going to have hubby file the broken edge nice and smooth and then use something to melt a hole in the flat part --- he he he, custom keychain :)

i'll keep ya posted on what comes of it.

Nice scenery! Bummer about the hook. :(

I'm thinking that maybe heating a nail the size of the hole you wish then using that to make the hole?
Let me know how you end up doing it! What a novel idea and great recycling!!!!!
Love the view!

That is one beautiful place! It reminds me of the canyons of So. Utah. Thanks for letting me see where YOU live!

Those photos are amazing! There's pretty scenery around here, but trees and hills are just not as spectacular as that :p

I've heard that the smaller Crystallites hooks are prone to snapping--that's a bummer. I've only got the bigger ones, L through P (or something) and I haven't had problems with those ones, though. That's a neat idea to make a keychain out of it!
