I'm still here! And Some Updates!

Hey guys! I'm still alive! I'm sorry I haven't been posting for a while. Life got a little busy with school, work, and crafting. However, I'm happy to say I passed one of the hardest classes for my school which is physics! Yay!

Anyway, besides school and work, I've been consumed with my battle with resin in which I have been defeated many times! Oh my gosh, it's very irritating! If resin was a person, I would be strangling it! I have a pile of failed resin pieces here. It makes me sad and frustrated that I have more failed pieces than the successful pieces!

RIP

I'm trying to make casted resin charms using variety of molds. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but my pieces are not curing properly. All the charms in my RIP box are not completely hard. I'm trying to rule out all the possibilities from inaccurate measurements, temperature, and resin expiration. So far, I have no luck since I'm keep getting inconsistent results. I bought a new batch of resin so I'm hoping for a miracle with those.

I've been also working on my Charlie Harper needlepoint and I'm almost done, so I don't want to post any photos yet! I will once it's complete, so please stay tuned!

I hope everyone is having a productive week! Thanks for reading! I also want to welcome my new followers!

Happy crafting!
