Making Strides

I don’t think I have said before that I am a moderator on a yahoo group for Ranger products. My friend Neith had told me that they were looking for new moderators for the group and that she thought I would be a great addition I was totally flattered and made my interest known to Donna who is the list owner and also Ranger U certified (Neith also put in a good word for me).

The group has been around for a while now but they were looking to put a more formal aspect to it in terms of having a more structured schedule for posting techniques – know as Inklings. So I am now a Ranger Inkling Moderator. So once a month (there are 4 Inkling Moderators) I have to post a how-to (including pictures of finished products) using Ranger products of course.

So Wednesday was my first post and it was a great success. I was a bit nervous as I was the first to post but it all turned out awesome in the end. The other moderators gave me high praise so I am happy, happy, happy. You can check out the group here http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rangerinklink/ but I think you have to join the group to be able to read posts etc.

The great thing about this is that some of the moderators had a weekend retreat in June and they got to play with a lot of the Ranger products. I was not able to go but Neith attended and she brought me back a bunch of stuff that was donated by Ranger and Ranger Signature Artist as well as by some of the other moderators. So I now have some awesome stuff to play with that I had not used before. Not a bad trade for doing a monthly technique and answering questions on the forum.

So I am slowly building my artistic resume.
