An Update and a Gift For Me

I managed to successfully fill my handmade bezels with resin.... although it was not as straight forward as that (is it ever?)


When I filled them with resin, I put them under a light to aid in the bubbles rising to the surface, where they either could pop, or I could pop them. But because the lamp was a little too warm, the bubbles rose to the surface, but did not pop, and when I came back to check on them, the surface was already too set, and there were bubbles all over the top of many of them. I calmly experimented by cutting off the hardened part containing the bubbles, mixed up another batch of resin, and carefully added it too the top. It worked, and I smiled!



I also smiled a couple of days ago, when I received these wonderful things.... and they weren't delivered by the mail, but by hand from the husband of a blogging friend. I was fortunate to be gifted this from Kim, and even more fortunate to meet her wonderful husband. As you can see there is a beautiful card made by Stacy Kathryn Holst, as well as a lovely decoration and a beautiful box decorated by Kim. And inside the box.....



were 3 of Kim's beautiful handmade paper clips! I love them! And all just in time to celebrate my 50th birthday (which is today!) Thank you Kim!

  8. Hi Kim, Happy belated birthday. I saw this post but I guess I forgot to comment on it. Thanks for sharing and the shout out. It's always a nice surprise to see one's own work on another blog. David is just a day away now and I'm looking forward to getting down to Bisbee and making stuff again.
    xoxo Kim
