But not just any kind-a ninja...a crystal ninja !!
and so....just a few days ago my "ninja kit" came in the mail...and it was a total surprise...because I didn't order it....it was a PRIZE...I'd won it.
thats right...you heard me correctly
I'D WON IT !!
I freakin won The Crystal Ninja Emmy Award Swag Gift Bag
Ever see a little 5 foot, old person, doing flips and yelling...
that was me and my glee !! Screaming and jumping joyfully !
Here's some back story:
Kellie DeFries, aka the Crystal Ninja
was Sponsored by Swarovski & Create Your Style at the 2013 Craft and Hobby Association's Gifting Suite for the 65th Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, CA. The Swag Bag was personally made with 1 Swarovski Crystal glued in the logo by Kellie and her amazing assistant Crystal. (Yes, she is amazing and YES her name IS Crystal!)
The Crystal Ninja Team sat with each attendee teaching them just how easy it is to use the Swarovski Brand Ceralun-2part epoxy clay, a Crystal Katana- Patent Pending Rhinestone and crystal pick up tool with hundreds of different sizes and shapes of Swarovski Elements.
The Crystal Katana can pick up and place not only flatback crystals with ease but also chatons-pointed pack crystals, metal findings, beads, pearls, findings and most other small shapes and sizes ranging from tiny pp1 all the way to ss48! The Crystal Katana proved to be a work horse for all of the guests of the Gifting suite.
and one of the 'gifts' in my box was this FAAAAAAABULOUS RING made with their new pink 2 part apoxie clay (which Ive played wth a lot over the last 2 years from other brands) and many many rhinestones that sparkled like the sun!
.how thoughtfully yummy!
and here, of course, my very own Ninja tool

There isn't even a question that if there is a space...so there belongs a rhinestone...or 50...!
