Biting More Than I Can Chew
September has been a busy month for me.
I started a new job, and I decided to go for a big exam at the end of the month. Both the new job and the exam require lots and lots of studying, and I find myself wishing I was young again. Oh how much we could learn when we were teenagers!
Having been an "executive personal assistant" to my hubby for many years, getting back to work while studying for a test has proven to be more time-consuming than I originally thought. I miss taking my time to whip up a nice batch of soap, or testing out a new recipe from the latest magazine issue.
What I did not anticipate was how heat also expanded those tiny air pockets on the silicon surface. Those tiny air bubbles gave these discs a sponge-looking texture, and I was so disappointed! I had to take one and run it under the tab to rub off that sponge-looking layer. Now, that looks better.
I wonder if there's anyone out there who has also experienced the same "bubbling effect" when doing CPOP with silicon molds.. or is it just my mold?
Oh by the way... Courtney, I still remember my promise to you! I've postponed my stamp making date till sometime next month ( really need to catch up on all the reading I've managed to procrastinate). Hopefully when things slowly settle down, I'll be able to sit down and make more stamps!
