Cku hey bloggers!  just checking in with a quick recap of CKU-Nashville, what an amazing time!!!  with this being my 5th year of teaching at CKU's, i have to say that i look forward to each event…  i taught my workshops using ranger's new memory capsules along with our memory glass and frames and we made 4….yes 4 finished projects in our hour and a half!  crazy but fun!  of course it's always cool to get together with my friends in the industry: the sweet debby schuh, and here i am with teresa collins and the one and only margie!.  the hotel for CKU-Nashville is one of my favorites, the Gaylord Opryland – we definitely took some time to hang out, eat some great food, and drink a few bottles of bug juice – a nashville tradition-thank you emily adams! (only some of us partake in the bug juice though…)  the vibe at CKU is such fun, filled with anticipation of learning new things, meeting new friends, and creating new memories – it's just a great time.

anyways, i wanted to fill you in on a little rumor i heard (and trust me when i say that i am not much of a rumor person) but i thought this one was important to share… there is only going to be one more CKU…that's it…one more and then it's over…from what i hear…for good… so if you're thinking about going to one, haven't ever been to one, or just want that last chance to go to another one, CKU-Provo in August is your last chance.  i'm telling you, you won't be disappointed!  go out with a bang i say…so i'm planning on doing a few exciting things there myself.  okay, enough said – you've been told…

so from CKU, i headed straight to new jersey for a week at ranger and then Ranger U this weekend.  can't wait!  we're busy with the final planning stages of our new products for CHA-Summer release, and already working on the ideas and products for CHA-2010… it just keeps going and going the fun never stops!  so i'll be checking in throughout the week and keeping you posted about my ranger adventures.  more to come….t!m

    I love everything Ranger! It will be fun seeing what they unleash at summer CHA. I just wish I lived in area where I could have more ‘hands on’ experience with the products and the wonderful teachers that Ranger U produces.

    Awww so sorry to hear about the end od CKU, it seems so many things in our scrappy world are heading down that same road, it’s very sad.
    Glad to hear you enjoyed CKU Nashville.

  5. Margaret Wilburn says:

    SO jealous of seeing everyone in throes of creativity. I think right now my favorite Ranger product would be alcohol inks…well, maybe the mini mister, or maybe the Distress Inks. It’s so hard to decide! Hope you have a fabulous time tomorrow.

    How do I love Ranger? Let me count the ways.
    So addicting to work with. the more I do, the more I want to do.
    All those Ranger products on the table look like sitting in Ranger heaven.

  7. Susan Kesselman says:

    Favorite Ranger product? Wow – that’s a toughie. Guess the Distress Inks would get top billing for me – love the versatility of them. Would love to have every product with the full color range. You’d never have to buy a competitor’s product again!

  9. You are a busy person, you must like to travel!
    Our local store is a big let down, we have Michael’s, Joann’s and Craft Warehouse, they don’t have much!

    My favorite Ranger product right now are the alcohol inks because they are so versatile.
    I love all their products because of their quality and commitment to customer service.

  13. Robyn W says:

    well i suppose that means i wont get to tick it off my list before i kick it… you know when the last one is T!M

  14. Tima says:

    Tim, Thx for the great projects at CKU. My son enjoyed seeing his eyes peeking out the keyhole. I have to say not only were the projects great but you taught in a way that took all the stress out of a fast moving class. The pace worked only due the way in which you taught it. thanks again for the most enjoyable time. I am so glad I made it to your class via CKU before CKU is history.
    And for the ladies who asked, agreed that Tim never takes a bad picture and looks even better in person. 🙂

  15. Traci Severson says:

    only one more CKU ever – oh what is happening in the world? looks like you had a super time! sweet!

  16. pat says:

    Sounds like you’re having a good time. I wonder what new things are cooking up for this summer from Ranger U………….

  17. Sandi says:

    What great fun you all were having. How sad though that CKU will be coming to an end. I’ll never have the chance to attend one.

  18. Patty 2832 says:

    How much fun you are having!!

  19. Tona says:

    Glad to hear you had such a good time in Nashville. Can’t wait to see what you & Ranger have in store for us.

  20. Mahala says:

    Looks like you’re having a great time.

  21. Diane Roulston says:

    I did CKU San Jose in 2003 and it was great. I’d love to do one in Provo (heard it’s the best) but this year it’s kind of out. Sorry to hear they are going away. Hopefully there will be something else coming in to replace it! I look forward to seeing what’s coming up! Thanks for the update, TH!!! Have fun at Ranger U.

  22. Lynn Barwald says:

    Hi Tim! I’ve been looking up everyone’s blog and they are cooler than kewl!!! There aren’t enough hours in the day to keep up with everyone’s unbelievable creativity! Wow!!! Lynn B

  23. colleen says:

    well thats sad no more CKU but something will transpire new, how about tim, mario university in AZ. sounds like a great school
    take care and have lots of fun

  24. Melissa Cook says:

    Wow! looks like you had a lot of fun and were really busy!
    Too bad I missed out on possibly the last CKU 🙁 maybe when the economy gets better it will come back?

  25. What a bummer but it seems like when one door closes … another opens to other opportunities and adventures! Looking forward to some pics of your projects!!! -Melinda

  26. Diana B says:

    I am sure the economy has had a lot to do with CKU ending – – it is a lot of money to spend when it is not local – and not many have that type of disposable income.
