SWAG = Loot.

The ICE crew do up these give-a-way bags with cards from vendors, samples, and other fun stuff. I didn't participate in this the last show, so I didn't want to miss out this year.

These little lumps of clay have consumed my life for the majority of this week. First, I sculpted the positive from clay. (I have a new found respect for the person in charge of sculpting for the US mint.) Then, I made a negative for stamping into clay out of sculpy. Next, rolling out clay, stamping, cutting out ovals, smoothing and pokeing the holes. 500 didn't sound like that big a number when I started, but after all that and making little envelopes to enclose the pendant and a buisness card my fingers are tired. I have decided to make a few and doll them up to sell as well. I am going to take a break and do something else for a while.

Hi Kristie,
The effort you put into your SWAG really shows. Your little pendant is my favorite swag-bag item from ICE. The little "secret" envelope is really creative and memorable. I hope you made a bunch of sales at ICE.
