Hi Everyone! We had such a wonderful time this Emmy weekend in L.A.! Spellbinders had the amazing opportunity to share our craft with the stars at the Emmy Awards Connected Gift Lounge. We set up our booth with a make and take table... where we did some embossing on leather bracelets with the Grand Calibur machine. We also had a table featuring some brand new... never before seen product! We were giving the celebrities who passed through... a gift box with a handcrafted Spellbinders bracelet, designed by A Gilded Life. Below you'll find some fun photos of our time at the event... starting with a photo of our Founder and President, Stacey Caron, with Shea and Debbie from A Gilded Life. On the bottom right... you'll spot Richard Karn, from Home Improvement, trying out our tools!
Next... we captured some memories with some real superstars! Going clockwise from the top left... Stacey had a chat with Lou Diamond Phillips! (I even got to dance with him spontaneously when an old school dance track came on the loud speaker! What a great guy he was.) Next... Stacey shares a Spellbinders demo with AJ Buckley, of CSI: NY. He was really interested in the product for his upcoming wedding! On the bottom right... Mekhi Phifer, of ER fame and his lovely wife took some time for a demo... while Emmy Award Nominee and (WINNER) Tony Hale from the hit show Veep, does a make and take with Senior Education Manager, Richard Garay.
In this set... clockwise from the top left: Vanessa Marcil, best known from General Hospital, 90210, and Las Vegas... The adorable and rambunctious Pauly Shore... Stacey with singing legend, Carol Connors of The Teddy Bears... Neil Flynn of Scrubs and currently The Middle.
And finally... we talked soap operas with long time soap actor, Drake Hogestyn. Richard got super crafty with actor, Wesley Jonathan from Soul Man. Stacey got a rare photo with legendary actress, Penny Marshall. Penny only takes photos with brands that she really enjoyed. Spellbinders is thrilled to be included in that group! And we shared embossing tips with football great, Jim McMahon.
A great time was had by all! Thank you so much for your love and support as we jumped into this adventure! Stay tuned this week for some amazing fall themed tutorials!
