  1. If you prepare the blow mold well and go lightly with the paint you can effectively use other spray paints besides those formulated for strictly for plastic. Rustoleum Painters Touch works well, I have used it when I was stuck for a color not offered in the plastic line by Krylon or Rustoleum. A close match for the pink is gloss Candy Pink. I suggest that once you paint with a non plastic paint that you seal the mold with a clear coat. It will help with adhesion over time. I hope this helps you.
  2. I had a Sylvania Yulescapes Snowman and a motorized Elf. I bought them in 2006. The Snowman, sadly, deteriorated badly (the foam) and I had to toss it. The Elf is still in working condition. At that time, I was tempted to buy the gingerbread house but didn't do so. They were widely distributed here in the Chicago area. I do recall them being more or less on clearance at FIM (a store here that would buy overstocks) in 2007 and 2008.
  3. That is one of the best deals I've seen in a long long time. Good for you, Elaine!
  4. There will be molds available at the Swap Meet at the American Christmas Decorator's Conference, coming up on June 20 - 23 in Carmel, Indiana. The American Christmas Decorators Conference IS replacing ICE, LUO, and C3... The concept to form one larger event to make things easier, as well as more valuable for everyone is one that has been in the works for a while. We will have ALL of the things that made each of the seperate events a success, so no matter if your interest is Blow Molds, DIY, LOR, pixels, or something in between, this is your event! The central Indiana location was sele
  5. There are so many people that helped with C3 this year, that I run the risk of forgetting someone if I attempted naming everyone. The weather fooled us, typical for Chicago. Who would have ever thought the remnants of a Hurricane would affect us here, and as we all saw.. it didn’t. But without the assistance of everyone who so willingly pitched in this year, supplied muscle, support, vehicles, patience, brains and tireless assistance, C3 could have been a disaster..thank you all from the bottom of my heart..Christmas decorators are, without doubt, the most generous, giving and helpful people I
  6. Apologies for not seeing these posts earlier..please forgive me. If you wish to come to C3, you still may do so. You will not receive a t-shirt, but I do need to know in advance. Payment of $40 at the door (sorry there is no reduction in price). Please contact me (Carrie Sansing) at [email protected] Four vendors will be here, Christmas-Leds.com (product and ordering); Winkelbottoms Wireframes (some product and ordering); TwoDogLights (no products, but ordering); LightKeeper/LedKeeper (no products); GordonLights (ordering)
  7. In the event of bad weather, we will move C3 to the host hotel, The Courtyard by Marriott 1801 Milwaukee Ave, Glenview, IL 60025. A conference room and the entire lobby is ours for the event.. No worries!
  8. In case you were wondering, there will be a rather huge swap meet at C3. Bring what you have to sell or swap, your junk may be someone else's treasure!
  9. I have a customer for this, asked for a new look. Thought I would share it here. The paint is finished but there will be another modification to change it. The plan is to add a string of LED C7s from the interior so that the tree will truly look like a Christmas tree. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, software keeps giving me an error message that I have exceeded my allotted disk space for an attachment..sorry about that, carry on, nothing to see here..yet.
  10. There's lots to do here..plan on coming in a day or two earlier..you won't be disappointed! Register NOW! http://chicago2012.constantlychristmas.com/sponsors.php
  11. The White Elephant gift exchange was so much fun in 2010, we're doing it again this year at C3: What do you do to participate? Remember, this is voluntary..its not a must, but if you don't bring a gift, you don't get one. 1. Check through your stash of Christmas "stuff". Things that are in good shape or new, that you don't want, never used, or won't use. Your discard might just be perfect for someone else..then again, maybe not! 2. There is no minimum or maximum as to value..so if you want to, wrap up that spare controller you don't need.. or those boxes of c7 replacement bulbs..
