Wow, you guys posted some GREAT summer vacation memories. Thanks to all that did. I too am a beach gal, living in South Florida (or as we are calling it these days, THE SURFACE OF THE SUN). I find it very interesting how much water plays a role in our lives and how much we humans crave, desire and REQUIRE it. Nearly everyone posted about how much they love being near the shore, or near a large body of water. As a conservation biologist I also hope that each of us will do our best to ensure that our world's precious water sources remain protected, clean and HEALTHY. I encourage all of you to educate yourself about your cities water supply, and water management policies. Water will be the world's next fought over commodity and we must protect our oceans, rivers, lakes and streams. Remember, as Star Trek taught us, humans are "Ugly bags of mostly water" and water is what keeps us ALIVE.
There, PSA over!
Now, on to the good stuff....I put all your names in a random name generator and clicked the magic button. The winner of the alcohol ink on aluminum cuff bracelet is....
Which is kind of interesting when you think about it. So many posts about loving water and spending time in and around water....then Erin FISH is the name the program chose. Huh. COOL!
So, congrats Erin, get in touch with me as soon as you can and I will get your cuff out to you. Thanks again to everyone who posted and took a trip down vacation memory lane. I really enjoyed reading each one!
I also just posted a video tutorial on working with alcohol inks on metals and stone--take a look if you are interested in giving this technique a try.
Stay cool everybody, and enjoy the rest of your summer. May your pool noodles stay afloat and your drinks stay frosty.
Now, GO MAKE SOMETHING AMAZING!!
