What Is Marc Like? A Ranger Melting Pot Of My Own!

What is Marc like ?…… Look what I unwrapped on Christmas morning!
Ranger Melting PotA Melting Pot of my very own ……oooooooooooooooo, just seeing it bought back such happy memories of my last two visits to Marc when we tried faux soldering in the summer and Movember Moustaches in October, memories that I will treasure forever of Marc’s infectious enthusiasm, our laughter and the horrendous mess we created in his lounge ……..
Cosmic ShimmerBut Marc, being Marc didn’t just leave it at giving me the melting pot of my crafting dreams did he? ……Can you imagine how I felt when I found all these at the bottom of the box, hidden under the melting pot’s packaging …… Marc what are you like?  LOL ….. I know what you are like ….. and I love you soooooooooo much it hurts!!!
002Well, it would have looked extremely rude not to have had the teeniest, tiniest play on Christmas morning while the turkey was cooking wouldn’t it?……..
melting pot heartSo I quickly melted down a small quantity of Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Sapphire embossing crystals and poured it into a heart shaped cookie cutter, adding a few Beadazzles and making a hole very, very quickly before the heart set …. et voila!!  My Christmas heart tied with ribbon left over from The Wedding of the Year!
What a wonderful present, what can I say?  There is much watching of You Tube ahead for me to learn all the techniques, Googling for inspiration and much experimenting to be done, my mind is buzzing, and I am planning on using 27th December to go through and tidy as I go along my craft cupboards finding and putting aside all the bits I think I can "Melt Pot" with …… so expect a post almost every other day for the next year or so while I get to grips with my new “toy”.
Thank you sooooo much Marc

I've come across Marc on several craft forums and he always seems a nice guy. Well now you've confirmed he his and also an amazing friend to you. How appropriate that your first make in the Melt Pot was a heart. Marc continue being you - you're lovely!
