and so...a fabulous weekend at ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING has concluded. I was just too damned tired last night to blog.
and this is an example of what they learned to make on day 2...a bazillion UTEE techniques plus more beeswax.
This is Kate. She's introducing me.....I felt like I was getting an EMMY or something..it was cool...everyone was rapt with attention...at least I think that's what they were.
Students came in their best attire.....
for crying out loud..I wanna shirt with MY name on it !!!...
Just kidding.....when I'm done teaching you'll KNOW you Schmoozed with Suze
first up....Instant Art Transferz
anything goes in my class...even the 'I'll have my lobster with butter please' look
I brought hundreds of items for them to mold...hid them in 3 big tubs under the table till the moment of the big reveal
but we did have one or two over achievers...ahem....
they loved the Cloisonne technique using Ranger Perfect Pearls & the Mosaic Stones stamp from Starving Artist Stamps
and "Faux Soldering"
and using UTEE to put a stamped image into a Ranger Memory Frame
we sure as heck melted a lot of UTEE and got some wonderful unexpected effects...like this secret number "25" that's hidden in there...see it?
and in keeping with my kitchen philosophy...I found the perfect use for a frig... cooling UTEE donut necklaces
But, lets talk about the store itself.....everywhere you go you'll find amazing items to either buy or admire
even the bathroom has art in it...pee and see
I went nuts over all the wire birdhouses. It was like a real estate sale ! Frankly, if I had more room in my already "over crowded with art stuff" house I'd have bought them ALL !!!
aren't these little black torsos way cool....you can buy them to display your jewelry.
and the store sells tons of gorgeous ribbons
and trinkets...some of which I'd never seen before
from there it was on to Kates amazing home
and I got to have all the sushi I could eat and I was a mega happy camper !!!!
I took these with my IPhone...AT NIGHT... and look how cool they are...you just need to hold your hand steady
OKAY NOW.....almost The End
so...for those who are wondering where they can buy my products - or ANY product - and don't have a local source. ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING is doing mail order and they have absolutely everything...call them at 978-887-6397.
Ask for Kate...she's the cute one on the right
Next day we had a family gathering...Now you can see why I'm a tad pooped
My first cousins live in the town next to Kates store....HELLO FAMILY !!!
I love my cousins...we went to my cousin Anitas house. Her father and my mother were brother & sister
Salads, Gefilte Fish, Lox
and everyone had IPhones so we exchanged APPs and laughed a lot
Now...it's time to unwind, unpack and RE-Pack for the next event
CAN'T WAIT !!!
