Visiting with a Friend

Today I had the extreme pleasure of meeting with my long-time friend for a visit while our girls were in school (hers is in full day like my son, but my daughter is in for 2 1/2 hrs 4 days per week). I have known her so long, we spend most of our senior year of college together!! I graduated in December of '93 (and she Spring of '94 I believe!), so we have known each other a good, long time and she is a person I know I will be friends with for the rest of my life!! It was so great to see her and catch up in person, tho' we e-mail frequently.

She also has a shop on etsy:
The thing about her is that she could always spot a trend before it became trendy! She is one to watch!! :-)

Very exciting to me--she brought me a new mold to use with my resin! SNOWFLAKES!! I went glassy-eyed with ideas as soon as I saw it, and she had some great ideas, too!! My girlie got some Caillou DVDs from the library--I think we may have to pop them in this afternoon and she can watch them from her couch-cushion fort. Then I can get the first layer of resin down and curing for these snowflakes! Keep an eye to my shop for the finished product! Can't wait!!!!
Isn't that a cool mold?!

Here is girlie in her fort, soon to be watching Caillou!


Hello there! My name is June said...

Wow! Nice snowflake mold! Makes me think of 2 words...'mold release' LOL! I bet they would look great using some opaque white tinted resin with glitter!

The thing is I DID use mold release... :-P Maybe not enough. We'll see, the one I did pop out was still flexible, so maybe they just need a little more time in there... I agree, I find that molds with more detail look better with tinted resin--alas, not this group. I have no white dye at the moment! ;-)
Next year!
