Bring the ocean right into your home with functional art!
**The shown photos are a sample of my work. This particular board shape is sold out. When you order, photos of board options will be sent for you to choose a style. If you do not reply to that email within 24 hours, a board design will be chosen for you. Returns are not accepted.
**Arrival by certain date if requested will be attempted, but cannot be guaranteed.
Put your board to use on your kitchen counter, use as a table centerpiece, a serving platter for snacks, or breakfast in bed.
In between uses, hang it on the wall as an eye catching piece of art.
This dimensional ocean is made with high quality table top resin. The pigments are also top quality and are designed specifically to mix with resin. Resin art is unique and one of a kind. Even when using the same technique, there will always be variations, so you can be assured you will have a unique, one of a kind piece!
Photos on this listing are a sample of my work. Purchasing this listing means you will open discussion for a commissioned piece in a beach style. I am accepting custom commissions if you have a different color or design you desire. Please contact me for more information.
The wood is sealed with a food grade oil and wax. Please continue to nourish the wood by reapplying oil and wax periodically.
The resin area is safe for incidental food contact. Please use the wood area for food. If you'd like to preserve the front wood area, to use for cutting, simply place a thick towel on your counter, turn the board over and cut on the back.
***does not include other items, listing is for the ocean board only.

Meet the Maker
We are a family business and you are an extension of this family. We appreciate you and look forward to sharing some JOY with you!
When I'm not in my studio making pretty things for your home, I'm being a wife (30 years whoop whoop!) and a mom to five grown kids who still manage to keep me busy, and I love it! Our 22 year old was born with part of her brain missing, and I am also her full time caregiver.
In 2018 my husband beat cancer. That's the year I realized I needed an outlet. My kids were slowly leaving home to be independent, and as a caregiver, I rarely took time to enjoy something just for me. At the same time, cancer isn't cheap! Our savings shrunk and I wanted to help recoup some of that. As a result, Joy in the Making was born!
As retirement years grow closer, we are gearing up for traveling and taking our products on the road to shows around the country. We both love doing events and combining that with traveling sounds amazing to us!
Have a blessed day and feel free to message me if you have any questions about our products, or us.
Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the Caring Community!
My products are handmade and/or upcycled. I have a studio detached from my home where I do most of my work. See my shop description for more about me.
Please know I recycle as much as I can, including boxes, so you may see tale tale signs of that. Rest assured, I am quite skilled at rebuilding secure boxes to fit your item.
I will send you a tracking number.
I cannot control the delivery company once they have your package. If there is an issue with your package once it is shipped, please contact me and we will work to resolve the issue.
If you are unhappy with your item, please reach out to me and we can discuss how to make it right.
Returns: I do not typically accept returns. If there is something you’re not happy with, please message me to discuss.
For custom orders, I send photos of items prior to shipping for final approval and to be sure it is what you’re expecting. I do not do this for listed items, as photos are included in the listing. If you have questions, please contact me prior to purchase.
Please remember there are color differences on screens, and I am not responsible for those differences.
If you are ordering a custom item, I ask a lot of questions in order to be sure I match your idea the best I can. Therefore, it is very important that you keep tabs on your email or conversations through Goimagine so you can answer my questions in a timely manner. I will wait 24 hours, then make a decision based on what information I do have.
Regarding mugs: I do not use vinyl on my mugs. They are dishwasher safe, but handwashing is recommended. If you use a water softener such as vinegar, your design might fade a bit, so handwashing is strongly encouraged.
Regarding RESIN work:
Resin work is incredibly fluid and no two pieces will look identical. For custom orders, if I send proofs during the process, or when an item is complete, and you approve it, there will be no revisions or return.
I have a professional studio, including a sealed curing cabinet and air extraction system. Sometimes a rogue piece of dust will settle into your resin. Please see this as a reminder that you supported a handmade business.If you're concerned about this, please contact me and for more detailed photos.
Please note, if you have asked me to replicate a previously made piece of mine, I will do the best I can, but it is impossible to have an exact replica. I mix colors for each project, so even those will vary.
I support other makers and will not copy their work. If you see a style you like, please submit three or four variations and we can use them as inspiration to design your own unique piece.
I look forward to working with you on a project you’ll enjoy for years to come!
