Fantastic News!

Shut the door! Are you seriously telling me that my grandmother made the ICE Resin Creative Team??

Oh Man! This is going to blow Gigi’s mind!

I am thrilled to become part of the 2102 – 2013 ICE Resin Creative team!!!

I first experimented with  ICE Resin in Dec 2010 and was immediately hooked! I find myself looking at objects in a different way – “Can I pour ICE on this?”

So Yes, I am excited!

Check out the other new creative team members – their work is amazing!
