Airbrush review!

Howdy all! It’s a beautiful Friday here for me in Eugene (Oregon).  Sun is shining, blue sky from all directions and a high expected of 73.  

I only had about a 20 minute window today to play around with the new airbrush from Wilton though. I have tons of stuff to do and am also expecting company (hubby’s mom) shortly but I know some of you have been waiting to see if I’d buy the airbrush system… duh, yes I was! Just had to get groceries purchased, and make sure I had enough to survive on until next payday before I did. 

I took some VERY raw footage from me walking through it (set up and basic use) and am attaching it in the post for you.  Sorry but I just have nothing baked to spray nor the time to do anything extensive to show it off more.  In the coming week I’ll see what I can do for you though. You can find the video on my Facebook page because my server says the video files are to large for my server. 

My over all thought is that it’s great for those just getting into airbrushing and worth every penny of the purchase.  

Another thing, this is a Michaels exclusive products.  We are the only store in the area that will carry it.  We also only carry usually 2 at a time, 1 now since I bought one last night.  You can order it online through Michaels, try to be the first to get the one left, or see if my store can get a store transfer in for you from another store quicker than waiting for the system to calculate it’s replenishment needs and then send it via the truck. 

The next answer is no, Michaels and Wilton will not be offering any type of project class for this.  The answer after that is, yes I will be offering personal classes.  I need time to make friends with this brush and figure out all the in’s and out’s of it before I dedicate myself to a class.   In the mean time if you do want to get together for basic stuff I will be available at a discounted rate to help you. 

I hope you have a great weekend! 

Confectionately yours, 

Carolyn

New Page: Used Items For Sale

Good morning everyone.  

Any true decorator knows that with time we collect more things than we know what to do with.  Try being the instructor!  I have an overflow of items that I need to purchase to help cross sell during classes and at times I love it so much I purchase more than 1.  

When an item is discontinued and has sold out as clearance, I am not longer able to take that item into class to cross sell since it can no longer be purchased.  This gets me having tons and I mean TONS of stuff that just sits and collects dust.  

I have decided to pass that bargain on to you and sell my items that are “gently” used at a discount price.  

So instead of selling to a stranger off of Craig’s List and/or Ebay I would like to give you first pick at what I have available. 

If you live locally you can pick up what you would like to purchase and avoid shipping costs.  We can arrange for you to pick up items before or after a class I teach, or I can deliver them. 

For those that live out of the area, I apologize but I need to charge a $5 flat rate for shipping it per item. I can not afford to absorb the cost of shipping.  If you are purchasing more than one item we can work out a cheaper shipping rate.  For multiple items please contact me directly.
