If you are reading this blog post on Sunday, July 21, the car wheels are spinning.
Jen Cushman, ICE Resin’s VP of Marketing, and ICE Resin Sales Director Cindy Moss are motoring down the highway, no doubt talking business, listening to tunes and, as the asphault heats up deciding which Route 66 landmark to stop at for a snack on their way to the Summer Craft and Hobby Association Show in Las Vegas!
Monday, July 22 from 2 to 4 p.m., Sponsored by Petersen-Arne: Jen is teaching ICE Resin’s innovative new Cold Enameling program at CHA for the first time. Join the ladies of ICE Resin to create a whimsical and colorful cold enameled charm bracelet with Iced Enamels that will entice and engage your customers.
Their Iced Enamels™ program is a unique, custom formulated, proprietary system of enameling powders, enameling medium and ICE Resin® that works symbiotically to create a permanent, jeweler’s grade bond of color on all types of metals, from precious metals to base metals. It can also be used for mixed-media projects from paper crafting to jewelry making.
There are still a few seat available and you can sign up for Workshop W0404.
Tuesday, July 23, 3:30 p.m.: Watch Jen Cushman Take the Designer Mystery Box Challenge with Charity Wings!

We are pleased to announce that Cindi Bisson has agreed to continue on our 2012-13 Special projects Team!
Cindi is a delightful person and a talented mixed media and jewelry artist. But that is far from all…
Home decor? Yes. Upcycle? Of course! Paper crafts? You bet. Rubber stamps? Her own line premiered through Stampington in ’06. Teacher? Yes. You may have enjoyed her classes online, When Creativity Knocks, at CHA, Maker Fairs, Scrapper’s Dream Vacations and many others. Writer? Check her out in Bella Crafts Quarterly, Scrap n Art, and The Polymer Arts Magazine.
Cindi’s blog is Behind These Eyes. She was our Superstar Saturday guest when this blog was not quite new, she also hopped with Industrial Chic earlier in 2012, you can find technique videos and beautiful projects she made by searching this blog.
Jen hand cut an acrylic house, added vintage sheet music paper coated with ICE Resin and colored the paper with alcohol inks. The saying is magnetic poetry and vintage rhinestone chain in ICE Resin®. The heart is hand formed from paper clay and painted. The wings were forged and formed from copper wire. A little silk sari and bead dangle and a cute brass crown finished the piece. She created the hanger with forged copper and drew a bead on the ends to hold the ornament in place with a proper cold connection.
Just before Christmas (because you’re as good as you can be) Jen has a new book coming out!
A whirlwind of stylish energy entered our booth at CHA and her name was Traci Bautista. In point of fact, her name still is Traci Bautista. She is our Super Star this Saturday, here to tell you about herself and her new book, “Doodles Unleashed”.
If you want to know more about how Traci dreams big, check out her web site.
We adore our ladies extraordinaire who weave art into the fabriqué of our lives.
One is dressed for a masquerade while her friend wears a red hat and a chocker of black velvet ribbon adorned with a pearl. A butterfly dared to land in her sister’s hair…perhaps the winged creature thought her fan was a flower and wanted to get a closer look. A penchant young miss with a rose in her hair writes in her diary (…Perhaps of a certain young man and the new fashions with their masculine lines which her parents would never approve and why does she need approval anyway? She is has her own dreams!)
Just who are these continental travelers, these women magnifiqué dressed in the glamour of a world a century and more gone by?
Is it their beauty we are drawn to? The wistful expressions captured on canvas and early photographs that give a mere hint of a smile because a) you had to stay still for a photograph, or b) you had to strike the same pose for the artist with his brush day after day, or c) that corset didn’t allow for laughter that swelled from your belly?
Where might you find them to converse with over chocolat truffles and high tea?
France, my friends.
Carol, Susan’s social media gal here. The nice thing about being on the other side of the camera is getting to see and hear everyone’s reaction.
In this case, the waiter, the waitress, the other restaurant patrons, the people in buca di beppo who were there for a business meeting and NEVER expected the ICE Queen and her retinue.
“What is that?”
“It’s a moustache.”
(They got it when she ripped the moustache off.)
I know you don’t recognize our mysterious women in disguise. That’s (l to r, back row) Creative Team member Patina Marie, the ICE Queen, our friend Kelly, (front l to r) Jen our Director of Education, CT member JoAnnA and CT Coordiantor Kristin.
Way too much fun after an awesomely productive day at the Craft and Hobby Association’s Winter Show.
And we were celebrating Creative Team member JoAnnA’s birthday, so of course there was more than one toast, followed a bit later by singing wait staff.
We’re back in the room now and I have to stop writing soon and join the slumber party.keep looking »
