Ranger University & Give-Away Winner!

Guess who's going back to school? 

Well, not exactly. 
More like a weekend of unbelievably creative inspiration, hands-on instruction and FUN! 

Yep, I got a wonderful e-mail of acceptance from non-other than Tim Holtz himself yesterday afternoon saying I had been accepted. 

So what is Ranger University? 

Held at Ranger Industries in New Jersey, it's a weekend program designed to educate designers, shop owners, bloggers and instructors on the extensive Ranger product lines so we may pass along our knowledge and promote these products with confidence to YOU.

Tim Holtz, Ranger's Creative Director, will teach hands-on techniques with Perfect pearls, Melt Art, Inks, and Paints and Embossing Powders.

Claudine Hellmuth, mixed-media collage artist and licensed designer, will provide creative insight and teach the versatility of her signature Studio line.

Dyan Reaveley, Ranger Senior Educator, will introduce her signature Dylusions line of products with a spin on art journaling.

and Mackie Mullane, Designer and Educator for Vintaj Natural Brass Company, will show how to achieve a variety of beautiful effects on metal using Vintaj Patinas, Glaze, Embossing Powders and UTEE.

Needless to say, I'm extremely excited and honored to be attending this year. The event is scheduled for April 26 - 28. My hotel reservations are set and I'm booking my flight today!

While I'm on this high, I thought it a good time to do a big GIVE-AWAY, as I mentioned in this post last week. Thank you all for such lovely, encouraging comments for my Graphic 45 audition. Stay tuned for those results on April 4th. For now, the blog comment that was selected randomly was...

I do wish you loads of luck! Glorious work... my goodness, your creativity, imagination and amazing technique and skill are here in such abundance... the Patchwork Canvas, the Creativity Wall Hanging, the Tropical Travelogue Dressform and the ABC Primer lunchbox - just a few of my personal highlights...

Will keep my fingers firmly crossed for you, Annette!
