So loving this gallery!  I'm sure that everything will be loved!  Really love the whimsical animals, the fun butterflies, and the cool hangings!

Onyx I peeked on your blog to read more about your resin butterflies.  Smiley  Lana took some classes using uv resin when we were in Hawaii and she got a ton of supplies to play with.  I should probably post some of the things she made.

Thank you!  I appreciate the love!  Smiley

dulcet, I would try just using a diamond crusted drill bit and do it by hand or if you are using an electric drill you should try drilling it under water to dissipate the heat and it keeps the dust down which is nice for your lungs.

nodsu, I'm happy you think it will be loved out in CA.  Smiley

Just got back from a wonderful visit back home.  While Lana spent lots of time on the beach body surfing and swimming, John and I roamed about picking up shells, coral, and beach plastic.  I decided to use some of what I collected there to make a few items for the Abandoned Art Swap https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452836.0 as well as for the upcoming Shop the Swap.  Tongue

I made the necklace using nylon cord and a puka shelll (puka means hole in Hawaiian).  I used the same technique here that is to make ti leaf leis.  John helped me not only by drilling the coral, but he also taught me me how to make a whip finish.  Smiley

the batch

I had lots of fun making these.  I have some more projects planned to use the beach plastic as well as some koa sheets that I got for free on my last visit home.

Yay!  Thank you AM and L2E!  We are all reved up!

I made a few extras of the items that I made for the Art Abandonment Swap that I'll list in my shop.

I know I'm gonna want so many things from all the shops so I need to get my crafting butt in gear.
