like a 5 year old on...


Christmas eve...

That's how excited I am to be headed back to Ranger U tomorrow.

It's 3 full days of fun & inspiration...

3 full days of tim, Suze & Claudine...

3 full days of being with the Ranger family...

3 full days of visiting with our friend Mario...(the king of Twitter...)

I'm betting he'll post some photos...
click on his name to follow him on Twitter...

3 full days of seeing some friends & having the opportunity to meet some new ones too...

3 full days of being with people who "get this ink thing" (addiction)....

and speaking of ink...

that's one of my most favorite parts...the factory tour...

I've seen it before, but I can't wait to see it again...

It's awesome to see the process of the pads being handmade...

the huge volume of inks is so exciting...
if you LOVE inks, seeing a MILLION of them is really cool...

I think about that every time a box of inks magically appears on our doorstep...
hey...I've seen them make these guys!

then there's the
Stickles machine...

OMG!!

that is like the coolest machine...

I'm especially excited to FINALLY meet...
"the Linda Elbourne"...she's coming all the way from the UK...
We've corresponded for a long time...

thanks to Ranger, we get to meet in person...
YIPPEE!



So, that's where I'll be for the next few days...

getting inky & LOVING every minute of it.

I will post via the iPad, while I'm gone...
but my camera connection isn't arriving before I go, so I doubt there will be any photos...

It's now scheduled to arrive the day I come home...boohoo...

While I'm gone...
take care &...

remember to...

make art!

No doubt, by the excitement in your voice, you will have a "hellofagood" time! You deserve it, so, enjoy. But, next year, because I haven't yet learned how to share, I deserve to have you back at Stampfest Orlando! Be safe!
<3 U!!!

Lori said...

Don't forget to play the Pure Imagination song in your head whilst walking round the factory. Ask Tim to play it for you, just to get it in your head...lol. Sounds like fun, fun, fun. We'll be living it vicariously thru you...lol

helen said...

Linda has been doing countdown tags; she is, as Lin says above, fit to burst with excitement at meeting you, Tim, Suze and Claudine. Send her back in one piece, we need to see what she's going to have got up to!!!

I think Linda did mention once or twice or perhaps a few times that she was going over and who she would be meeting - she's been like a dog with 2 tails ;-) Ooh wish it was me
