Ever since I was a young girl, I can remember getting ready for church with Grandma and how she just loved this brooch of the Blessed Mary.

Living in Arkansas now, I rarely get to the coast. I grew up inland from San Francisco and my grandmother lived in the city so we would go visit her on a very regular basis. She would take us down to Fisherman’s Wharf for sourdough and clam chowder. We would have fish 'n' chips and watch the seals on the lower piers.

Hello! Hello! We have a BRAND NEW challenge for all of you Relics & Artifacts® fanatics out there! Your next mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to stretch your creative muscles, broaden those artistic horizons, and get down and dirty with resin!
Since we now carry Susan Lenart-Kazmer's renowned Ice Resin®, what better way to welcome this brand new product into our creative folds than showing us what magic you can work.

Prize? Wait what?! Yes! There are prizes for first and second place and these prizes are way more than just bragging rights, though those are equally awesome too. This round of prizes will include product from both RELICS & ARTIFACTS® and Ranger! Totally awesome, I know.
One more little thing to keep in mind. Please be mindful of copyright etiquette. Replications of any part of Relics & Artifacts® line or packaging are not only unallowable, it's also extremely uncool. Please be careful to observe and adhere to copyright standards and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask any of the Ambassadors or Relics & Artifacts® Powers That Be.
Good luck and don't forget that hashtag, #RAExplorethePossibilities, when uploading your project!
