Glitter & Epoxy Wooooo!

Last night’s phase 2:

#glitter + #epoxy = #whee!!! #diy #craft

A video posted by Miriella (@miriella915) on

So much fun! I checked this morning and the epoxy has dried wonderfully and it looks just amazing. I didn’t put in a whole lot of glitter as I had an image behind the epoxy that I wanted you to *kind* of be able to see. I learned a few things on the way too, like, I have to seal ALL the paper I want first before I pour epoxy all over it…stuff like that. But I’ll get into that when I have pictures I can actually show you. I’m on the fence about adding one more layer, but I think I’ll skip it, as I don’t want the final product to be TOO heavy, and I rather like the 3D effect it is giving off right now.

I’m so excited this has turned out well, and I’m looking forward to sparkling up a few little tables as my next experiment! It won’t happen until I come back from vacation, so that will be a few weeks.

Fun with Crafts

I got hit with a craft bug a few months ago – and it’s quite a severe case! So I keep going down these rabbit holes of crafts…I’m sewing lights, making headbands, spray painting random things, and playing with glitter and resin all at once. I experimented with a project using epoxy last night and so far it’s turned out great:

 

Tonight I’ll be working on phase 2. Can’t show all the deets yet because I’m hoping it will turn out to be a great gift for someone. But when it’s received, I’ll post the final product!

On an upside, Springroll got her little sand crawler pet from the fishing treasures bag today. Yay! Now if Miriella would just get it, we’d be in better shape.

Fishing: The One That WILL Not Get Away

Alright, here I am, working on the achievement for The One That Didn’t Get Away – apart from winning the Fishing Tournament, is just about the most elusive fishing achievement to get.

I’ve been trying for it on and off, but now I’m on a serious chase for it, so here goes the numbers for yesterday and today’s fishing sessions so far:

Azshara, Bay of Storms:

  • 7 Pound Lobster
  • 9 Pound Lobster
  • 12 Pound Lobster
  • 1 Black Pearl
  • 1 Golden Pearl
  • 174 Darkclaw Lobster
  • 1 Iridescent Pearl
  • 23 Large Raw Mightfish
  • 5 Raw Spotted Yellowtail
  • 89 Raw Summer Bass
  • 4 Reinforced Locked Chest
  • 2 Small Lustrous Pearl
  • 1 Solid Blasting Powder (from 1 Venture Company Supplies Crate)
  • 29 Stonescale Eel
  • 32 Zesty Clam Meat

This brings it to a total of 360 catches (minus the pearls). My goal is to fish to 1000 fish here in Azshara, and after, if I still haven’t caught one of the rares, I’ll head to Howling Fjord or Grizzly Hills for the Dark Herring. Who wouldn’t want to get stabbed in the face with a fish?

Wish me luck. It’s apparent I’ll need it, though I did catch Old Ironjaw in under 2 hours of work two nights ago:)

  • 15 Pound Lobster (they’re getting bigger!)
  • 92 Pound Mightfish😦
  • 81 Darkclaw Lobster
