Alternative to dome/round resin mold

I bought this paint tray (I don't know if thats the proper name for it) at Michaels for around a dollar.

So I gave it a try with some resin happy faces I wanted to make and  it works!! The only down side is you can't see small air bubbles, so it has to be poured slowly and only a little at a time so the bubbles come up or you can blow them out.

Also it's not so easy to pop out so put it in the freezer for a minute or so and they will come right out! Ice cube trays work too.
So if you don't want to buy a mold this will do the trick 

                                               Happy resin making, love and kisses......2 of them

Thank you cards

I wanted to send  thank you notes to my costumers with their orders, I think it's a nice touch and very personal after all I am making handmade jewelry.
I purchased the thank you cards from Michaels, I love the damask pattern, it matches the banner on my Etsy shop. The pack has 40 cards, 40 envelops and 40 little thank you oval like parts that you can put if you like.

I had a stamp made with my logo and I purchased black, purple and pink ink to match the logo colors. The good thing about the stamp is that I can use it for anything I have put it on bags, boxes and have even made tags with it too.

It's a little bit of work because I have to go slowly and be careful with the colors on the stamp but I think it's worth it.

The card opens up and inside I hand write my thank you note.

Business cards

I don't know why but every time I would start looking for business cards I would get frustrated with the price or the designs I was finding. Finally I got around to it! and found 123Print they let you upload your own logo and customize it to your liking.

So for $8.95 I got 100 beautiful cards. I'm  very happy with the way the came out and the quality. Shipping was free and I got to make my own card design, being the picky person that I am that was perfect for me.

Hello this is to introduce myself

I will start of by saying that I don't want this blog to be only about my shop, I also want to share about my family, other hobbies and whatever is going on.

So a little about me, my name is Issa and I live in Connecticut with my two daughters and husband. Ambar is the oldest and Mya is the baby and I can't forget my husband Gabe. I'm currently working on finishing my business degree that has taken me forever to finish but I'm almost done. Okay so this may seem random but I LOVE Hello Kitty =^.^=   a lot I even have a tattoo of her. My favorite color is black and most of the time thats the only color I wear.

I will try my hardest to post on a weekly bases unless I'm completely swamped with resin making. I hope everyone enjoys my post and have a wonderful day.

                                                                     Love, hugs and kisses two of them ;)
