Yes...I know....I got a little carried away but I figured that if I went ahead and did alot then they would be ready for my next project. You have to do two coats of Modge Podge on each side so that when the resin is poured over it, it doesn't soak in. I have accomplished two coats on one side and one coat on the back side. I'm now waiting on those to dry for the last coat. I should have that done sometime tonight. Meanwhile, I am going to go ahead and pour the first coat of resin in the molds. I'll take a pic of that when I get them completed today.

Along with the project for my nephew, I'm going to do one for my niece too. She needs some items for teachers so I will be adding that in. I think it will be quicker and more productive.
The weather here is beautiful again today so I will hopefully be doing most of my work outside for ventilation. I've been told the resin is toxic if not well ventilated so I'm going to make sure and follow all recommendations to be safe.
Till later on my progress....

I'm so excited! I've received my supplies to start work on my resin jewelry. My first project is going to be a gift for my nephew. I have a teeny lock of hair that my sister snatched when they weren't looking.....no abuse was not involved..hee hee. Check out the adorable little fella....
I'm going to make a resin charm with his lock of hair and then take a pic and do picture transfer on metal for another charm with his birthdate on it. I'll show you my results.....well...if they turn out ha ha. That or I'll be telling you what I did wrong.....
It will take me two days to complete so I'll post each day to show you my progress.
I have to stain the deck this morning..ugghhh...so I won't start on it till this afternoon.
I must go to work on the deck now so I'll post later..have a great day! It's beautiful and sunny here.

I would love to hear from some of you out there that have had a blog for awhile. Connect to me...talk to me or just tell me how dumb I am for trying this. Ha ha.
My problem with this blog is that I have never kept up with a journal, etc. so this will really take some discipline to keep doing. I'll do my best.
To come......I'm experimenting with photo transfer AND resin combined with my stamping and metal work. Check back soon to see my new "treasures"!

Since blogging is new for me, it will take a while for me to get my page the way I want it. I'm still learning the settings, layouts, etc. so if anyone would like to throw me some tips or tricks, I'm always open for constructive criticism. Ha ha.
Going to bed now. I have finally researched enough on my next topic to write a book. Stay tuned.....I have some fun things to add.
