More Pictures and another TLFT

I have to tell you about an amazing person I met at CHA. This is Melissa Kennedy with KaiserCraft. She wanted this little black and white button from another booth, but couldn't get away to get one. They were all gone, so I had to barter one of my cards with Amy Teets to get her one. Sometimes it takes so little to please us. What a hoot! (Please excuse my hair, it was raining in Chicago and it definitely contributed to a bad hair day). The album pictured is one of their displays. Too cool, heh?
Of course, Melissa is as talented as she is warm and friendly. How she kept 8 people going in a Make and Take at one time was unbelievable. But the papers and pearls, the rhinestones and brads were just drop-dead gorgeous!!!! Truly a treat.
Their wooden books, flourishes, albums, clocks and all around projects are right up my alley! WOW! Something very new and unusual. Loved it all.
I will be using their flowers and rhinestones in one of my upcoming classes.

Thank you Melissa for a very fun-filled class from a really classy gal!

Forgot the TLFT~Tip Learned from Tim
OK, this will be a short one. When you mix the Perfect Pearls, water, and re-inker inks in your mini-mister you must shake it immediately. The binders in the PP will activate in the water, as they should, and will make a solid ball if not shaken up. Figures, right?
