I had a time with my Mac not posting yesterday evening!....Here's yesterday's post....
I'm pooped! Thought I would take a moment and blog before the evening begins!
Today was FANTASTIC! I took the time to watch demos and slow the pace down a bit! First off was another round through Ranger! You can't help but want to keep going back as you don't want to miss anything! Before the show opened, we had the opportunity to talk to Tim a bit more! Because you guys, when The floor is open, Tim is swamped with fans! LOL!
Next, it was over to Sizzix to see all the dies! Loving the snowflake die! Here's a picture of a wreath made with it...
So many cool new dies! You gotta have 'em! Love ALL the Christmas and Halloween Dies! Oh My Gosh! I didn't catch the exact names of the dies but the domed dish die, is fantastic! So may uses! Oh and the Halloween Silhouettes! Oh My Gosh again! And then there is the on the border die with the people! HEAVEN! LOL!
Then it was over to the Piccolo/GlobeCraft Memories! You guys! I could have spent hours in here watching the demos on these INCREDIBLY AMAZING embossing powders! I think this product out of the whole show would be worth the fare of coming here! I'm in LOVE! That's saying a lot huh? They make these jewelry blanks from very tough pressed chipboard! things like pendants, earrings, and necklaces to name a few! you cover them with an embossing fluid dabber and then toss on a few layers of the powder! AMAZING! I know your like so, embossing powder...No, the most amazing colors all mixed into one powder! I wish I could explain! You could make the coolest embellishments for any project or if you were a jewelry maker the most awesome jewelry from these powders and pieces! Some of my favorite colors were, Mossy Glen, Mermaid Tears, Temple Stone andMardi Gras! Totally cool...Check them out when you get a chance! I know I'm going to invest in the company! HAHAHA
Here's a totally bad picture of the demo! Why didn't I get close ups of the goods! Who knows! At least you can see the shapes of the pendants...
Next over to USArt Quest. Joe Rotella turned me on to these mica watercolors a few months back and I love them. I went over to see all the colors... These really are fantastic. Just like a sparklin' watercolor! Just grab some water and apply to your project and mix if you want! Too Cool!
Gotta run for now but more later!
