Yeeee, I LOVE those coasters, very creative!!! When I made my partner a set, I started panicking when the resin started changing the look of the paper, so I know how Susie feels lol. But when I calmed down (because there's nothing you can do once you pour that resin uggg) I started liking the changes. It makes it all better when our partners do too!
Ah good, so I am not the only one. I've used resin before and it bled into my paper, but this time with the coasters I used Mod Podge to seal it first (and I even used a second coat). I thought for sure I wouldn't have the same issue. Except it did, yet like you said, you get used to it and even start liking it in parts.
WELL FOLKS, I have a lovely package to present to you. I received from Ramona Q a functional and adorable set of things:
Here's everything all together! I told her I like functional things and that I also have a printer's tray that I like to put trinkets in.
So, she embroidered this marvelous hoop of Steve Zissou to go on top of my printer's tray! The details are incredible and the back says, "Let me tell you about my boat". Too frickin' cool.
Then as a functional craft, she made me a Life Aquatic tote bag. I am still debating the lucky contents that are going to get to hang out in this bag. Maybe my books? Maybe some on-the-go crafting supplies? I love how it has the name of the boat on it:
Deep Search. Perfect.
And then as if that wasn't enough, she also gave me a Moonrise Kingdom zippered pouch! I just bought myself some new Micron pens and now they have a home! The pouch has the troop number, the raccoon patch, it has "Khaki Scout" embroidered into the top, AND the zipper has beads that spells out Suzy- what an adorable touch.
Ramona Q, you really spoiled me. Everything was great. Thank you so much.
