Crafting Helper

So this is a bit delayed, but a couple of weeks ago my Mom came to visit for the weekend and we went to work! She wanted to help me make some jewelry so I have enough stuff for my first craft/art show (Nov 14!!). One of my favorite pieces to make are the resin pendants. So I dug out my stamps and mica powders and we had a great time making the clay bases to these pendants. By the time she headed home there were over 50! Which is awesome. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been putting the resin on top and adhering the bails to the backs.

Check out some of the stuff we did below! This is only a sample of what we got done. But it was a blast hanging out with my Mom and making jewelry together!

Anywho, once she explained what exactly a diaper cake was I was on board! The theme of the party was Owl, with two colors of purple and two teal’s, so I was to make an owl about 3″ in diameter out of these colors. Thus the project began!
