Anyway, my latest project are making these pendants. I've seen a few of them on etsy and I looooove them. I just couldn't resist. A few weeks ago I found some washi paper at the thrift store for 80 cents. They're small pieces of paper, but they are perfect for making these pendants.
Yesterday after dropping my mom off at the airport, I asked John to stop at Michael's. I wanted to see if they had one of these wood clutch thingys there. I found this one at the thrift store for 95 cents.
I've never seen anything like it. I'm totally in love with it and I'm trying to figure out exactly how I want to use it. Of course, Michael's didn't have it, but I did manage to spend more than I was thinking I would (isn't that how it always is?) So I walked out with some Amy Butler paper, resin, a new Martha exacto knife, and some Martha tags.
This is the first time I've really gotten to inspect all Martha's new things and I must say I do love them, although they are a bit pricey. I love the exacto knife, but 12.99 isn't cheap. I think I paid more for the packaging!
Soo, yeah, back to the whole pendant making business. This is my first time working with resin and I think I'm in love. I just want to resin everything right now!! Now the pendants are drying. I can't wait to see them finished, but I just read a review and some people said it took almost 5 days to dry!!! oooh the pain. I'm trying to resist making anymore right now before these puppies dry. Now, back to sewing, or maybe cleaning up downstairs, or maybe just finishing my cup of coffee outside in the nice warm weather!
