    I made 80 starfish ornaments lol. I got an order at the end of January to make 80 of these starfish ornaments for a wedding

    I didn't think I'd ever finish them lol. it felt like it took forEVER but it really only took me a couple of weeks to get them done which isn't bad considering I did it all by myself.

    I was excited when I got the order... it's a nice commission but Oy VEY once I started I was wondering what I was thinking taking on 80 by myself lol.

    but lots of burns (hot glue gun), blisters and just plain old fatigue in my hands later and I'm finally done.

    I can't believe it. I did a little happy dance when I finished the last one last night. I'm pretty proud of myself and I worked my butt off on these to make sure each one was done to the best of my ability.

    If I ever take on another order like this again please shake me silly lol.

    80? Wow. I know by about the 20th one I'd have a really hard time maintaining quality :p Congratulations on finishing and on doing each one well! They're quite pretty I can see why someone would want them for a wedding.

    yeah it was really a struggle at times to keep on keeping on lol

    I emailed her with a "group photo" of all 80 of them to get her final approval. when she responded I opened my email and silently prayed "PLEEEEEEEEASE be happy with them or I'll cry... or have to be committed because I'll go crazy" :rofl1:

    Thank you :)
