Safe Heart

Some of the resin pieces I used were created a long time in the past, before the relocation, before the new studio. While I was rearranging the furniture in the studio to set up a resin workstation, I found a very small box in a drawer. When I opened it, it held all the resin pieces I had packed before the move. It was like finding an old friend - I remembered making them. The photo of the two children with the word "SAFE" - that piece was made and packed away, and just rediscovered. And it was lucky that I did find them that day, because the temperature was too cold to pour new resin. It would be almost a week before it warmed up enough to pour new pieces. It was like a little time capsule, a little gift to myself. Here, future self - you'll need these one day. You'll be glad you packed these and kept them, and you'll find them at just the right time. Keep them SAFE. You'll be happy to find them again.
       And I did. And I was. I am.

Your pieces are just beautiful! And eventhough I haven't had the time to comment, I've enjoyed the pieces you have been posting in the last few weeks.

Have a wonderful week!

Thanks so much Alice - I really need to hear that you like the new work. Just because I like them, doesn't mean anyone else will, you know what I mean? And I hover over the Etsy site and the blog, to see if anyone is looking at them, or commenting.

So I appreciate the positive feedback - maybe I can relax a bit now.

Anyone else liking these (besides ME, that is????), LOL!

Amazing how these little gifts turned up when you needed them most. I love the little heart. Reminds me that I do have a piece from you with a similar feel. Must go find it so that I can feel the thrill of its gift to me and then be inspired.
Enjoy the day.

Erin, the flip side of finding the little miracle gifts is that I also seem to HIDE things from myself. Right now I'm looking for a bag full of leather strips that I know I had, and now cannot find. But I'm still thankful for finding the resin pieces. Now, here, leather leather! If I can only find that bag!

Your resin pieces, as well as your pewter, are incredible!
You found them when you were ready to find them!
I love them!

Sharon, you are very sweet. Thanks for the lovely feedback. I doubt myself a lot, hearing that others do like the work helps relieve my anxieties!
