Pin Trivia 



A rolling pin is a simple tool used to flatten dough.

Over the centuries, rolling pins have been made of many different materials, including long cylinders of baked clay, smooth branches with the bark removed, and glass bottles. As the development of breads and pastries spread from Southern to Western and Northern Europe, wood from local forests was cut and finished for use as rolling pins. The French perfected the solid hardwood pin with tapered ends to roll pastry that is thick in the middle; its weight makes rolling easier. The French also use marble rolling pins for buttery dough worked on a marble slab.

Pin Trivia 


A belaying pin is a solid metal or wooden device used on traditionally rigged sailing vessels to secure lines of running rigging. Largely replaced on most modern vessels by cleats, they are still used, particularly on square rigged ships.

A belaying pin is composed of a round handle and cylindrical shaft. The shaft is inserted into a hole in various strategically located wooden pinrails (lining the inside of the bulwarks, surrounding the base of masts, or free-standing, called fife rails) up to the base of the handle. A line is then led under and behind the base of the pin then round the top in a Figure-8 pattern till at least four turns are complete.

Excess line is coiled and stored neatly by taking a bight from the upper part of the final strand, looping it over and round beneath the coil, then twisting it once or more before slipping the twisted end over the top of the belaying pin to secure the coil in place.

Pinbellish Pinning Party No. 39

Welcome to Pinbellish!

Pin Trivia 

Bridge Pins

Bridge pins are used on some musical instruments to locate the string precisely in the horizontal plane, and in the case of harpsichords to affect the sustain of the strings. They are usually made of steel in modern pianos, of brass in harpsichords, and bone or synthetics on acoustic guitars. Electric guitars do not usually have bridge pins as, in guitars, they are used to transfer the sound from the strings into the hollow body of the instrument as well as holding the strings in place.

In pianos the pins are set precisely in line with the edges of the notches of the bridge. The precise and firm setting of the pins is a critical element of the piano's quality. Loose or inaccurate pinning commonly produces false beats and tonal irregularities.

In harpsichords there tends to be a significant distance instead. This enables control of sustain and tone in harpsichord design.

Celebrating my 17th Wedding Anniversary-GCC Promo Code

Happy Tuesday!  Wow, what a busy month!  Is anyone else ready for all the banquets, recitals, contests, graduations, parties, etc, etc, to be over??  I sure am!

I am excited to say that I will get a little break this weekend because it is my 17th wedding Anniversary!  Yay!!  My purse orders will have to be on hold for just a few days...sorry customers!  I love you, but I am at my breaking point right now and I need a little me time.  Well, me and HUBBY time.  ;)  You might think this is lame, but the highlight of my weekend will be seeing the next Captain America movie!  We are just geeky like that.

Anyway, back to why I really wanted to write.  I have decided- (last minute b/c that is the way I roll) that I would like to offer my customers a Promo Code this weekend so you can celebrate with me!  The key to this promotion is that ONLY my CHEVRON purses are allowed to have the discount.  Do you love chevron purses?  Better yet, Chevron Concealed Carry Purses?  Well, then what are you waiting for?  Get on over to my Etsy shop, choose one of my stylish CC Purses and save 5 bucks this weekend!

(Promotion ends this Sunday at midnight.)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful, activity free weekend!

Blessings,

Quick Tip Saturday #7: How to Create Professional Fabric Labels at Spoonflower!

Today's Quick Tip:  How to create custom fabric labels at Spoonflower.com.

I spent a LONG time searching and trying out different ideas for creating my own fabric labels for my GCC-concealed carry purse line.  I tried...

1. Printing my own labels- time consuming, expensive, faded
2. Iron on labels- time consuming, , peeled

It took a while, but I have finally found a reliable source for beautiful fabric labels.  They are on great fabric, do not fade, do not peal, and are quick to make and order.  Got to love it!  My choice for labels is SPOONFLOWER!

 I am going to take your through the process step-by-step and you will see just how easy and inexpensive it is. 

STEP 1: Go to spoonflower.com and select "CREATE"
