I'm so sad, as are many of you, to learn that the LuminArte company is closing. Little did I know that they are based out of Fresno! It's one thing when a California company goes out of business, but more importantly, it is privately-owned by the woman who "invented" this product.
You are probably more familiar with their product line, especially the twinkling H2Os. I've been a painter for a long time, including some watercolor. These are in pots and infused with mica. These are super fun, especially for cards, tags, journaling and scrapbooking, of course.
Once word got out of their impending closure, they were inundated with orders. Rather than just say, "Sorry!" they have been working night and day to fulfill the orders. It's especially difficult because most of the staff was gone by then and they were just working to close the warehouse.
Anyhoo, I placed a large order and they've just sent notice that they will stop taking orders soon. They announced the closure in February (I think) and were planning to be closed by March. So here it is almost May!
I hope they manage a comeback, but in the meantime, place your orders. You may not see this product again. Here's the link.
