I'm finally back to my room and I actually have both feet up on the coffee table sipping a latte while blogging! I'm in heaven! My creative craftiness has cracked from creating continual cool creations! Got that? Let me define...I'm pooped! But, BOY what a fun day today!! I Love Love Love to learn new things and folks...I did!
Here's how the day played out...The morning started out with a tour of the Ranger Factory. I have no idea why this was one of the many highlights for me, but it was! I don't know whether just being around all the product gave me itchy hives of happiness or if it was the fascination with the amazing equipment that bottles, straps, labels, and packs! Too cool! Just too cool! Can I say that twice?
Then it was time to roll up our sleeves and get the love on...It was Perfect Pearls, Stickles, Liquid Pearls, Ultra Thick Embossing Powder or enamel (more on this awesome product later), Super Fine Detail Powder...Y'all RANGER HEAVEN...Trust Me Heaven! So many cool techniques and amazing ways to use these incredible products!...Can't wait to get home and try them all over again.
Next up, Vintaj... with the ever so cool and amazing Patinas and Glazes! I actually made jewelry and wore it proudly throughout the day...Yes, I really did except for the earrings! However, I did wrap them around my shirt buttons! Why not!
Lunch came and it was awesome! No, not the infamous square pizza's just yet...I hear that comes tomorrow! Yahoooo! But a wonderful lunch with great people! Can't beat that!
Then it was back to work! We finished up with Vintaj jewelry which my take on this would be some really cool and amazing embellishments for books and paper crafts! Thanks Vintaj for all the goodies!
Next, we were back with Tim doing probably my very favorite thing of the day...The Melting Pot. Y'all I had a total knock out blast with this! The techniques and the things you can do with this amazing little machine are endless. I always loved UTEE...Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel and knew you could do amazing things with it, but dude! This just Rocks! Molding embellies, mosaics, amazing agates (swirled with the cool colorants!), and something I completely missed in my shopping excursions...Texture Treads! I'm in love with these! So cool! I'm going after these when I get home too! I may order them tonight even! Probably my favorite part to the day! To neat!
Last but not least, an amazing barbecue dinner once again with some amazing new friends! Thanks Tim, Mario, Dyan, and Ranger for such an amazing day! Can't wait for day two!
Here's some snaps of today....Note...Tons Of Pictures Here!
