The Leading Edge with syndee holt
September 17, 2003

SYNDEEHOLT:

I have more fun with PX and PInata and clay..

AquaLuna13:

I have to just play and experiment more. I tend to be to project-oriented

SYNDEEHOLT:

I always feel that if I dont' come up with something new each week I've lost "it"

AquaLuna13:

that's a lot of pressure on yourself

SYNDEEHOLT:

Well, I didn't make anything earthshattering last weekwend that's for sure!

SYNDEEHOLT:

Oh, but here's news - I got accepted to the National Association of Photoshop Professionals NAPP for short - how fitting

AquaLuna13:

YAY!

StarGazer:

Wahooo!!!!

AuroraJ:

congrats Syn!

sunnisan:

yaHOO syn! that's faboo news!!

Jenn:

very cool news indeed...

SYNDEEHOLT:

Now I'll begin my mission to get digital images accepted by editors that don't know what they are talking about

AquaLuna13:

You go, girl!

Jenn:

lol... now *there's* a challenge

SYNDEEHOLT:

Course all my editors use my digitals, but there are some out there that need educating. I'm even going to go back and join the Pro Photo societies firs of the year

sunnisan:

FINally. there's some drop dead great digital photography the dinosaurs are missing out on!

Jenn:

gee... does any one publisher come immediately to mind?

AquaLuna13:

like those who call polymer clay "just" plastic

SYNDEEHOLT:

OH OH yeah!

sunnisan:

just plastic. hmf *eyeroll*

AquaLuna13:

makes me want to spit!

SYNDEEHOLT:

RAine I was at an art gathering saturday where they rolled their eyes at my plastic jewelry then showed my their rubber band art and their plaster casts made from latex molds and REALLY BAD photos and paintings

AquaLuna13:

figures! small-minded snobs!

sunnisan:

rubber band ART? now it's OUR turn to eyeroll.

StarGazer:

personally i think rubber bands aren't that hot without the newspaper ink... they're just soooo bland....

SYNDEEHOLT:

not small minded - self-concious is more like it insecure

AquaLuna13:

I don't understand how people differentiate on what is art

sunnisan:

bingo raine...

AquaLuna13:

maddening

SYNDEEHOLT:

yes, how can paintings in a gallery be called art and tole painting is a craft? it's all the same damn paint

AquaLuna13:

absolutely!

sunnisan:

and all require quite a bit of skill and TALENT.

SYNDEEHOLT:

is functional not art?

AquaLuna13:

I've seen tole stuff that blows my socks off!

sunnisan:

i can't do it. i just can't put that stuff together.

AquaLuna13:

right now there's a huge debate about illustrators vs 'true' artists

SYNDEEHOLT:

Same thing is going on with computer designers and art. OH OH OH - have you all glanced through the BHG Halloween issue?

Jenn:

no, it's here, but I haven't opened yet...

sunnisan:

no - i missed it. pray tell, syn!

StarGazer:

nope, what's in it??

SYNDEEHOLT:

JENn - go get it and check out the eyeball table setting!! It's the best!!

sunnisan:

hahahahahahahaha. i shoulda known. eyeballs!

SYNDEEHOLT:

It's the BEST - even the ice in the punchbowl is a giant eyeball. 3 of us collaborated on it. the plates are the BEST

AquaLuna13:

I made Chale a glow in thhe dark eyeball in a glowing orange hand...for his bedside table! I'll have to run out for a copy tomorrow!

sunnisan:

the ICE? oh! now i wanna run the 25mi into town to grab one outta the store!

SYNDEEHOLT:

WEll, this is one of those stories where I verbally contracted to do a punch ladle and a glass and they called me Thursday afternoon and said we want a 6 place setting forks, knives, spoons and glasses and we need it Tues AM

Chryse:

ouch

AuroraJ:

really! ouch!

AquaLuna13:

no pressure!

sunnisan:

ha! THAT's the one you were talking about!!! now i HAFTA go into town.

SYNDEEHOLT:

Yes Sunni - but I have to say - it really worked out. I'm a Halloween nut anyway - my decs went up last weekend

AquaLuna13:

you seem to work well under pressure...

sunnisan:

you do manage to produce well under pressure.

SYNDEEHOLT:

Hey, if they give me a weekend, I'm okay. I don't do production though and this smacked of production, but it was fun to do, so I didn't mind. Of course, now the kids all want me to make them silverware

AquaLuna13:

Halloween is my favorite holiday...the only one I really decorate for. It's the only time of year I can get stuff with black cats and witchy stuff

sunnisan:

hahahahahaha! new year's is my fave holiday, too.

AuroraJ:

hehe he Sunni!

sunnisan:

by the way, why wouldja hafta make all 6 settings the same, just so long as they're in the same theme? *evil grin*

SYNDEEHOLT:

Oh they weren't quite the same. I forgot, I brought the new PXs up to my class in San Jose too - before we knew which ones were picked

sunnisan:

and?

SYNDEEHOLT:

Oh we had a blast with em - someone there had a mold of a dragon that looked fabulous with the Mink on it

AquaLuna13:

there were MORE colors being tested?

SYNDEEHOLT:

Yeah, I had about what 14 colors Sunni?

sunnisan:

if i recall - it was a dozen or more. all of them were delicious.

SYNDEEHOLT:

I"ll have to count my fishies

AquaLuna13:

lol

SYNDEEHOLT:

one fish, two fish, red fish blue fish

sunnisan:

*chuckle*

SYNDEEHOLT:

Next I want tools for PX and orange lumiere, Lime green lumiere, Lime green Premo!

AquaLuna13:

ooooOOOOoooooo lime!

Jenn:

oh man, I have a friend who would just flip for lime px & premo...

sunnisan:

tools? like teensy weensy spoons? and itty bitty badminton rackets with real fine screens for sifting over something?

SYNDEEHOLT:

yeah, that kind of stuff, rubber chisels to apply fine line

AquaLuna13:

dragon scale tool...

SYNDEEHOLT:

OHHHHHH, little round random textures on a stick - interchangeable. see that fingerprint? It's a texture now! and round round, with no edges for idiots like me that can't stamp

AquaLuna13:

There goes that brain again! I'm in awe!

sunnisan:

*grin* i use my fingerprints a LOT for texturing!!

SYNDEEHOLT:

I use my fingernails to antique and stress clay

sunnisan:

yeah! like marie's tool! only textures!

AquaLuna13:

marie's tool?

sunnisan:

ask marie about her multiple tool when you see her at sandy camp, raine. she sells them.

SYNDEEHOLT:

Order one now and they'll bring it with the rest of your order

AquaLuna13:

that's a good idea.

AquaLuna13:

Gotta bring cash...gotta bring cash..

SYNDEEHOLT:

I've got the PX and stuff - you won't need any of that Friday-Sunday

AquaLuna13:

I'm gonna be there from Thursday til Monday

sunnisan:

amend that raine. gotta bring LOTS of cash. and empty suitcase to pack stuff back in.

Jenn:

wishes she was on the other coast so she could come & play...

SYNDEEHOLT:

We need to organize a Clay CAmp on the other coast

AuroraJ:

yes! you do!

SYNDEEHOLT:

nothing fancy or expensive, just a lot of clayers

Jenn:

yesyesyesyesyesyesyesyes

sunnisan:

yes ma'am that does need to happen!!

Jenn:

nods vigorously

AquaLuna13:

I've never been off of the east coast before!

SYNDEEHOLT:

oh my GOD!  we might have to drive down to my house then on Sat and pick up boys or something

sunnisan:

oh raine, you will LOVE sandy camp. the weather is gorgeous. the air is SO different from the east coast!! take sunglasses.

Jenn:

Raine - where are you?

AquaLuna13:

eastern Massachusetts!!!!!

SYNDEEHOLT:

and a bathing suit for the hot springs

AquaLuna13:

bathing suit is first on my packing list!

Jenn:

whimpers

sunnisan:

*grin*

SYNDEEHOLT:

Where can we have a SAndy Camp EAst? Chicago?

sunnisan:

midway location somewhere. prolly in tennesee or carolinas? or one of the virginias?

Jenn:

Jersey shore?  ok, Jersey mountains... closer to home anyhow. :)

sunnisan:

ooh. jersey would be nice. have a sandy camp east in the late spring to balance west in the fall!

SYNDEEHOLT:

My cousin lives in a renovated Mill in Jersey and she just wrote us of their storm prep plans then said   "BTW - are either of you running for governor?"

sunnisan:

hahahahahahahahahaha and you said both!

Jenn:

lol!!

SYNDEEHOLT:

Okay, Jersey - now we have to research a place, I'll get on it -0 you are all on my committee now Actually, I'm relieving myself of duties

AquaLuna13:

I'd drive down to Jersey!

Jenn:

hey, there are witnesses to this...

sunnisan:

heeheeheehee!!! let's enlist Leigh and Stephen!! think they'd be able to find a spot?

SYNDEEHOLT:

EXCELLENT idea Sunni!!! October is voting time for our guild and I'm quitting after 10 years of being their only pres

sunnisan:

good for you!! it's about time someone else stepped up to the plate!!

sunnisan:

say syn, anything new coming out from polyform in the next couple months?

SYNDEEHOLT:

you bet - HIA is right around the corner..

MSSERA:

yeah! Like bottles of black PX. I've used all my capsules (thankyou very much Syn for organising that!)

SYNDEEHOLT:

there is some mighty fine stuff brewing in their vats, I've heard the rumors

sunnisan:

can you spill any hints?

Jenn:

ohhh... HIA... there are days I miss working for a craft chain...

MSSERA:

wot is HIA?

Jenn:

Hobby Industry of America - major tradeshow...

MSSERA:

Oh wow...sounds like extreme fun

Jenn:

I used to get our buyers to bring me the project packs.. and as many samples as possible.

SYNDEEHOLT:

All I have is hints, but I'd hate to get everyone's hopes up

sunnisan:

ah. *pout* ok. i'll wait and hit ya next week!

SYNDEEHOLT:

Of course, they STILL haven't made my fuzzy clay yet..

MSSERA:

fuzzy clay? ewwwwwwwwww! Sounds like my cat hair inclusions

sunnisan:

don't need to make you fuzzy clay. just get another cat.... *giggle* in fact i'm getting 2 more cats in oct... if i don't stop i'll have as many as kim redcat!!

AquaLuna13:

ALL of my clay is fuzzy clay!

MSSERA:

lol sunni...great minds think alike

SYNDEEHOLT:

Sunni - are you coming to Sandy Camp too?

sunnisan:

i wish. but not this year, syn.

SYNDEEHOLT:

What would we want from Polyform if we could wish for anything?

sunnisan:

anything?

AquaLuna13:

more texture plates ones that run thru the pasta machine

SYNDEEHOLT:

yeah - if I can wish for fuzzy clay - that's anything

SYNDEEHOLT:

random texs or images

sunnisan:

transPARENT liquid sculpey. not translucent.

MSSERA:

a set of mini sculpting tools like those dockyard ones..that aren't so expensive!

SYNDEEHOLT:

I don't think the polymer fibers would allow for transparency, but I'll ask Jorge

AquaLuna13:

pre-made silk screens?

SYNDEEHOLT:

that's a good one too

SYNDEEHOLT:

I like my little texture ball tool

MSSERA:

would they make tools, do you think Syn?

SYNDEEHOLT:

beats me - what else can we use

AquaLuna13:

"syn in a bottle" heehee

MSSERA:

lol Aqualuna..I like that idea

AquaLuna13:

I want a rock like yours......

SYNDEEHOLT:

It's call redbull

Jenn:

more shapelets & stamp combos...

sunnisan:

i'd like to see the plastic tools they have out mirrored in firm rubber.

SYNDEEHOLT:

Oh sunni - that's A GREAT idea!! I love those tools

MSSERA:

Has anyone here got those mini dockyard lino carving type tools?

AquaLuna13:

I have a set but haven't used them yet

SYNDEEHOLT:

I do

MSSERA:

Are they easy to manipulate?

SYNDEEHOLT:

Speedball is the master of carving and they gave me a bunch

MSSERA:

I find baked clay hard to carve with anything else Ive tried but 40 bucks is a lot of money

SYNDEEHOLT:

Only bake the clay half the time carve and then finish baking

MSSERA:

aaah...wot a brilliant idea!

SYNDEEHOLT:

Know what else I wanted? Colored TLS in a pen tool

AquaLuna13:

OOoooooooo

Jenn:

the tls idea is super brilliant.

MSSERA:

Syn the mistress of fabby ideas!!!

SYNDEEHOLT:

You could draw your edges, sign your name.. sort of like an extruder?

Jenn:

like a paint pen or such?

SYNDEEHOLT:

yes

AquaLuna13:

I love that idea!

Jenn:

the tulip fabric paints, I mean...

SYNDEEHOLT:

Yeppers

sunnisan:

that sounds cool. i've been doing something similar with a syringe... a little hard working the plunger. how would we get the plunger to push the tls out i wonder....

AquaLuna13:

little tubes/bottles are too clumsy

SYNDEEHOLT:

too hard for us to squeeze

AquaLuna13:

a pen style would be great

Jenn:

ya, that's why I said the tulip tubes - they're narrow & manageable...

sunnisan:

yeah. squeeze instead.

SYNDEEHOLT:

I like the tulips

Jenn:

i like the paint, too... that helps.

MSSERA:

tulip tube?

sunnisan:

sera, think fabric paints...

SYNDEEHOLT:

know what else i want? the eraser clay colors in Premo

sunnisan:

YEAH. and more colors in the GITD

AquaLuna13:

Yeah...I just started playing with adding fluorescents to my clay

AuroraJ:

and! and! *spaces and falls off chair*

Chryse:

hehe aurora

MSSERA:

ROFL @ Rora

AquaLuna13:

aurora...hysterical!

AuroraJ:

I'm ok!

sunnisan:

and at LEAST fuchsia, cadmium yellow, and cobalt blue in the new superflex.

SYNDEEHOLT:

Their blue is just about cobalt, but fushica would be great

MSSERA:

and really transparent TLS. If fimo can do it with their fimogel, surely polyform can :)

AquaLuna13:

YEAH!

SYNDEEHOLT:

yeah, but sculpey sticks to polymer clay - the other stuff is taking a hard left from the polymer clays

MSSERA:

you mean the fimogel isn't polymer clay?

SYNDEEHOLT:

it;s not called polymer clay is it?

AquaLuna13:

hmmmmmm

MSSERA:

well no... but neither is TLS or Kato Liquid Medium

SYNDEEHOLT:

TLS is called liquid polymer clay

MSSERA:

not in their actual name

Jenn:

Fimogel is billed as a translucent polymer medium on the bottle

SYNDEEHOLT:

so are some glues, but that doesn't make em polymer clay

MSSERA:

I think the difference is a little academic

Jenn:

the word clay is nowhere in the description. it is a b*tch to sand....

MSSERA:

LOL aint they all (liquid clays)

Jenn:

this one is the worst

MSSERA:

Em says its really rubbery

SYNDEEHOLT:

I've done all the safety testing on polymer clay, so I'm sticking with that.  TLS is harder when baked than regular clay I think.

AquaLuna13:

I need to experiment with it more......

Jenn:

me too... waiting to try some of the new colored LS'

sunnisan:

in my experience, tls is more easily sandable when baked at 300*F

SYNDEEHOLT:

How about surface treatments? Like antiqueing stuff to make rust?

AquaLuna13:

copper verdigris patina?

sunnisan:

oooOOooo that would be purty!

MSSERA:

Do you get time to play with all the stuff you get sent Syn? Or after a while do you just think...I'll get round to that one day...

SYNDEEHOLT:

NO, I pretty much play with the stuff that interests me and don't or accept anything that doesn't. I like to fully explore one thing before moving on to another, but that doesn't mean I don't look at the others and let them perk in my mind. Sometimes I just grab all the new stuff and test it all and see what happens while I'm waiting for something else to bake or somthing

MSSERA:

I'd love to own something like Polymerclayexpress.com imagine all the fun you'd have :)

AquaLuna13:

It's overwhelming sometimes I need to organize myself better...I sometimes don't even know where to start... I think I'm trying to do everything at once

sunnisan:

it's when something can be combined with what you're working with now that the fun starts...

SYNDEEHOLT:

That's why I never move any of the junk in my garage, I want it right where I can find it when the need arises

Jenn:

I just get stuck playing with one concept, and don't do anything else for a while.

sunnisan:

i can't do that jenn, i'm like syn. a scattergun

Jenn:

ever since R'dale, I've been obsessing over mg with createx paints... it's all Marie's fault.

sunnisan:

createx paints. those and lumiers are my next acquisition....

AquaLuna13:

what are the createx paints?

Jenn:

airbrush paints... come in some awesome colors

AquaLuna13:

and they can be used with polymer clay?

Jenn:

yep, they sure can.

kadewey:

*JOIN* Entered room.

AuroraJ:

Hi Kat!

sunnisan:

hi kathy!

Chryse:

Hi Kat!

SYNDEEHOLT:

kathy - howdy!!

kadewey:

Evening. Can't stay too long.

SYNDEEHOLT:

whats new in Deweyville?

kadewey:

Not much.

sunnisan:

same ol' stuff different day?

kadewey:

Yes, same stuff, different day.

SYNDEEHOLT:

I sent a budding sculptor to your webpage the other day and got a response the next day which I thought was a thank you, but all it said was "Oh MY GOD"

sunnisan:

hahahahahahahahaha!!!

kadewey:

Thanks, Syndee.

sunnisan:

i love that reaction !!!

SYNDEEHOLT:

I hate those annoying thank you responses, but that was exceptional

sunnisan:

kathy - syn was tapping our brains. if you could wish for ANYthing from polyform, what would you ask for?

sunnisan:

u2 anita. what would you want?

SYNDEEHOLT:

we had some great ideas - premade silk screens more texture sheets and round textures rubber tools eraser clay colors in Premo

kadewey:

A clay that wouldn't scorch.

sunnisan:

oooo. higher temps!

kadewey:

And a clay that wouldn't crack on re-baking if stressed.

SYNDEEHOLT:

Oh, Kathy - PX is coming out with a new color you will love - it's like a duo Antique Copper/green, called Mink

kadewey:

When are they coming out with primary jewel tones? A deep magenta and an ultramarine would be nice.

SYNDEEHOLT:

I've mixed magenta before, but that's a great idea. these are pretty close - carbon black, pumpkin, salmon, reflex violet, mink, sky blue, grey lavender and pink gold

Jenn:

is drooling again

AquaLuna13:

me, too

AuroraJ:

  is drooling too

SYNDEEHOLT:

sigh - now I want to go play clay

kadewey:

  doesn't drool

sunnisan:

  hands out absorbant towels

AuroraJ:

ty sunni! my keyboard loves ya!

Jenn:

thanks Sunni...

AquaLuna13:

Oh, sure, just when I had my budget figured out....... lol grabs a towel from sunni

SYNDEEHOLT:

kathy - no but you have a cigarette afterwards

kadewey:

nope, not any more.

AuroraJ:

she quit

AquaLuna13:

yay to kathy!

SYNDEEHOLT:

Oh MY - that's great news!!

Jenn:

woohoo!!!!! Good for you!!!!

sunnisan:

oh!! congrats kathy!! that's a hard habit to give up!!

kadewey:

All it took was a day in ICU and a coupla days in cardiac care.

AuroraJ:

oh no!

SYNDEEHOLT:

what are you doing with all the money you save?

kadewey:

Pay the doctors.

AuroraJ:

you ok Kat?

sunnisan:

yup. that'll get your attention!!!

SYNDEEHOLT:

for a long time too..

kadewey:

I'm fine now, but take a lot of pills.

sunnisan:

well good. lotsa pills or not, it's good to know we're gonna keep you around awhile!!

SYNDEEHOLT:

when was this Kathy?

AuroraJ:

was that before or after RD, Kat?

kadewey:

Right after.

sunnisan:

woof. i'm glad you pulled thru.

AquaLuna13:

better living through chemistry! whatever keeps ya ticking

AuroraJ:

well, I'm sure glad you are ok!

kadewey:

yes, ticking, that's as good a word as any.

SYNDEEHOLT:

Sun looks a little brighter each day now, huh?

kadewey:

Everythings better now.

sunnisan:

*grin* i hear ya there, kathy!!!

kadewey:

I have to go.

sunnisan:

thanx for dropping in!! good to see ya again!

Beanie:

good to see ya Kathy

kadewey:

Tell Pearlex to come up with those gem tone colors, Syndee.

AuroraJ:

good to see ya, Kat!

SYNDEEHOLT:

night Kathy thanks for stopping by and for staying on earth with us mere mortals for a little longer..

KCRedcat:

bye Kathy

kadewey:

Night, all.

kadewey:

*PART* Left room.

Beanie:

I know what I would like from Polyform.. after long hard thinking..

sunnisan:

what would that be, beanie?

Beanie:

i woudl like to see a super glue that would hold polymer to metal....

KCRedcat:

ahhhhh

sunnisan:

oh, good one. and one that LASTS

Beanie:

yes one that lasts and one that isn't temp sensitive

SYNDEEHOLT:

Have you tried API's "Ultimate" glue? That seems to hold to everything and bake as well but it takes a long time to dry here at the beach..

AquaLuna13:

It'll dry in a heartbeat up here does Marie carry it?

SYNDEEHOLT:

I think so - just about everywhere does I get it at michaels

Beanie:

how does it hold pin backs Syndee?

SYNDEEHOLT:

I use a bandaid of clay over the pin backs with that inbetween and they are pretty darn tough

Beanie:

I would like to see a glue that you don't have to use the bandaid

KCRedcat:

tls here with the clay strip I'd rather cover up the pin back though...ugleeee

sunnisan:

really? i use a bandaid with tls... that holds really well, too.

SYNDEEHOLT:

I like th bandaid look course here the pin backs will rust, so cover them

sunnisan:

ditto. i actually hide the pinback under a sheet and then texture the entire back so it's almost as pretty as the front.

KCRedcat:

yep, the texture and then I 'sign' and date mine that area too....

SYNDEEHOLT:

  That's what I do also cat, but I forget the date. My grandmas joolry used to have just a wire that was elegantly bent for the pin back and the back part was embedded into the piece

KCRedcat:

I try not to! LOL on my barrettes and pins I'm good at putting them on...it's 'other things'....that I forget

Beanie:

bet that was beautiful syn

sunnisan:

i remember seeing that style

AquaLuna13:

stuff was made so much better theen

Beanie:

yes it was

SYNDEEHOLT:

Could we do it with the Artistic wire? We'd have to sharpen the pin end.

sunnisan:

probably, syn - it would need a bit of hardening before shaping, tho' -- it's a pretty soft wire.

SYNDEEHOLT:

yeah, much easier to have them made..

AquaLuna13:

I finally made a stamp of my logo. It reminds me to sign my stuff...most of the time My mom wants it on her stuff! She's so cute!!! I haven't sold anything yet.. I'm too attached to it

SYNDEEHOLT:

I don't sell my stuff, so I don't worry bout it too much.

KCRedcat:

that reminds me...I need to check out my wire 'stock' and prolly get some at Munro's on Thursday....

sunnisan:

i finally made a name cane with my "new" signature. and keep it on my work surface.

KCRedcat:

I have a cane of my logo

sunnisan:

your logo's cool, kim

SYNDEEHOLT:

I should make another one.

KCRedcat:

thanks I 'signed' my BF's tin front with the cane

SYNDEEHOLT:

When I taught in Mexico City, they all wanted to make their name

sunnisan:

really?

SYNDEEHOLT:

yep, so we had to work small, because they wanted it done in 10 minutes and use none of their precious clay stock

sunnisan:

name canes are fun. and hard if you're a picasso kinda gal like me!

SYNDEEHOLT:

They all came out and they were happy

KCRedcat:

10 mins! shesh!

sunnisan:

wow!

SYNDEEHOLT:

okay, now we are gonna make every letter in the alphabet..

KCRedcat:

lol

AquaLuna13:

heehee

SYNDEEHOLT:

where is that bottle of tequila?

sunnisan:

hahahahahaha!! i can see it now...

KCRedcat:

LOLOLOL

SYNDEEHOLT:

Actually, the store owner is lobbying for me to go to Brazil now.

AuroraJ:

:cool:

KCRedcat:

WOW!

sunnisan:

brazil!!!!!!!!!! what a coupe!

KCRedcat:

in two months I will be in CA!!!

sunnisan:

yahoo kim!

SYNDEEHOLT:

I''m goin to Costa Rica first - as a photographer and writer for my son's school band,

AquaLuna13:

wow! We have a huge Brazilian population in my city

AquaLuna13:

awesome

SYNDEEHOLT:

they have been invited down to perform and I'm writing the articles for the American press

sunnisan:

costa rica! ooooohhhhhhhhhhh. i'm SO jealous!!

KCRedcat:

cool

AquaLuna13:

That's so great! I can't wait to meet the boys, I might have signed up for too many classes......

SYNDEEHOLT:

But other than Sandy CAmp and a quick trip to tape DIY, that's it until January for travel

sunnisan:

you mean you're actually gonna take a travel breather? good for you!

SYNDEEHOLT:

maybe - until the phone rings..

KCRedcat:

LOL

SYNDEEHOLT:

can you come?...

sunnisan:

*smile* and you say, "Do you breathe air?"

KCRedcat:

LOL

sunnisan:

well syn, b4 ya go, anything new at expressions? are they looking for anything in particular?

SYNDEEHOLT:

no, not any sort of editorial calendar, send stuff to Jen when you have it

KCRedcat:

oh, just picked up one a week or two ago....latest one? way cool!!!

SYNDEEHOLT:

Next big one from Marie and I will be Jan

KCRedcat:

cool, will look for it!

sunnisan:

i'll look forward to seeing it!!

SYNDEEHOLT:

My column is each time though and I'm 3 ahead I think.

KCRedcat:

thats good

AquaLuna13:

Keep those ideas acomin!

SYNDEEHOLT:

If I teach photography at National, the editor and maybe the photographer will stop by and chat. the photographer and I went to the same school of photography, so he owes me

KCRedcat:

ahhhh lol

sunnisan:
