To all of those lucky, talented artists that are attending RANGER U ... congratulations! Welcome to the Ranger family!

It was this time last year, that I was part of one of THE MOST amazing opportunities and experiences of my life.  Not only did I get to go to Ranger Industries, see their amazing facilities and meet the people behind all of the wonderful products we enjoy.  I met wonderful artists literally from around the world! We shared three glorious days of learning, experimenting, laughing, EATING (thanks Mario) and making enduring, treasured friendships.  Receiving the really deep instruction from Tim Holtz and Claudine Hellmuth was a dream come true!  Such talented, creative and REAL people! LOVE THEM!

Hels, Cheryl, Yvonne (me) and Linda ... I so love you guys!

Here are just a few of my very very special lifetime friends I made at Ranger U.  We affectionately call ourselves "The Airport Girls". 

So, to all of you who are at Ranger U right now, soak in every second of it!  It will be over before you know it!  You are in for an AMAZING once in a lifetime experience!  I wish you a weekend of such joy!  

And...once again, welcome to the Ranger U alumni!
