Hi Everyone

For a long time now I have admired Tim Holtz and never mentioned it to anybody before.  I find his techniques WOW and when I see what other crafters do with his products it completely inspires me to want to try but because it is out of my comfort zone I have always been nervous to try something different as usual !!!

Yesterday on QVC (although I was at work) I recorded all of the shows.  After dropping Lucy at school doing a little shopping I rushed back home and was sat in front of the tv with my coffee and that was me for hours and hours.  Now I have been trawling the internet trying to get the best prices for the products that I want.  I was so surprised to find that some of the companies I buy from here in the UK actually sell some of the items I want WOOO HOOOOO

Two weeks ago I attended a Tim Holtz class at my local craft shop.  It was two whole hours of bliss for me I was totally inspired, and then after watching Mr H today on QVC I am was in craft heaven !!!!

Below is the project we were shown to make at the class.  I could not believe that I could actually make something like that.

Although you cannot actually see it, there is actually accetate on the inside of the bird cage.  Such a cool idea !!! (not mine)

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog.

I truly appreciate it !!!
