I made a resin tutorial that comes in 4 parts. Anyone who is interested in it definitely should try. You don't have to make jewelry charms per se. I've seen people use it in miniatures as well, since it resembles water. I go through step by step on how you mix the resin and how to cure it. It's quite addicting once you get a hang of it. Enjoy!
Hello everyone! I know I haven't been on here for a while, but I hope you are all doing well! I just wanted to share with you guys what I have been working on in terms of crafting. I recently finished making this mermaid jewelry box for a craft contest.
It was quite a process to make this. First I made a master of the box using casting resin and made a mold out of it using silicone. Then, I hand casted the box with epoxy resin which I also incased the mermaid image along with bunch of glitter, real sand, and sea shells. I stained the lace with tea to make it look vintage and glued it around the box. Lastly, I added swarovski rhinestones for extra bling :) It was my first time making a resin box, so I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. But, overall, I'm happy with the final product. I just love this vintage image of a mermaid holding a shoe.
My very first polymer clay miniature figurine of this Japanese bear named "Rilakkuma". This took me around 1 hour to make, and it was quite challenging because of the tiny size! Especially when It came to painting all the details! My hands would not stop shaking and I felt like I was holding my breath the whole time. I still had a lot of fun making this and I'm very proud of it!
Hi everyone! First of all I want to wish everyone happy new year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your family and friends. I just want to say I'm looking forward to another year full of crafting. I know I have not been very active here on my blog, since my Youtube channel is keeping me busy.

This year is going to be an exciting year for me!. 2013 will the year where my career will take off, so I'm very anxious. I will be doing my full time clinical as a student Physical therapy assistant and I will also be graduating in June. Also, I will be taking my national board exam in October to get my license, so there is going to be a lot of stuff happening in 2013 for me. I'm very nervous and excited at the same time!
I hope you guys are having an amazing year so far! What are you looking forward to in 2013?
