Warning: This doesn't really have anything to do with QuicKutz. Sorry.
A new talent has emerged within our company over the last month and I feel it deserves some recognition. You see, a couple months ago we were doing a deep clean of our warehouse when Andrea stumbled upon a huge box full of Elmer's poster tack. At first we thought we'd just throw it away but a couple people in the company saw its potential and decided to use globs of this blue stuff for stress relief. It wasn't long before people started sculpting with it (the consistency is similar to that of silly putty but better). Soon enough that poster tack became a precious office commodity, so much in fact that a box full of it was the most sought after white elephant gift at our Christmas party. Guess who got it :).
How it works:
First you clump it together and stretch it out like taffy (this is where the stress relief comes in)
Pretty soon you've got a soft and warm ball to work with.
Anyway I've been very impressed with the demonstation of such creativity in our company (particulary among our sales reps, who knew?), so here is a sample of the artwork. I wish I could put them all up (you see many sculptures only last a few days before they are mushed and then formed into something new), but I think it's a good representation.

To make this a little more interesting, I've decided that you guys should help us decide which is the most impressive. So once again, the power is yours to choose a winner. Just post a comment and let us know which is your favorite blue sculpture!
I apologize if this post did not satisfy the QK fanatics hoping for a buzz of what's to come this month. The birthday shapes have been a hit but there is even more in store this month so stay tuned the week of CHA to hear about everything new from QuicKutz!
