Oh my goodness I had the best day EVER! I happen to think that Tim Holtz is a genius... just a creative miracle. And I had the absolute pleasure today to spend the day watching him create, learning amazing techniques to use with his incredible products. It was truly a day to remember!!
Tim came today to do a FREE demonstration at Stamper's Corner...the local scrapbook store in my neighborhood. I was a little worried that it would be impossible to get in - after all, this is TIM HOLTZ that we are talking about, so I got to the store at 6:30 this morning...I was the first one in line. Yep, it was worth it.
First in line meant I got the first photo with Tim, and I got the best seat in the house for the demo. I was so impressed, not with just his creative ability - (although I was impressed with this of course - I wish just a LITTLE of his brilliance would rub off on me! Hopefully after a day of being 2 feet away some of the magic dust will have been absorbed! I am sure he "flicked" some my way!) -but also with how personable, fun and down to earth he was. I learned a few new words and phrases that will stay with me for a while. He is a funny man... seriously adorable.
I was able to participate in 2 separate demonstrations (morning and afternoon) - one on grungeboard, and one on ATC's and ink techniques... I learned so much!! We got to make a grungeboard bracelet (cute) and I had him autograph a Grungeboard "T" for my layout of these photos!
Of course, the demo was free, but this man is a born salesman and, well ... I am weak and easily convinced - so I bought a lot of goodies, and have a new LONG list of things I "NEED" (like I needed help in this area).
Anyway, I am so thankful to stamper's corner for hosting this wonderful day, and to Tim for sharing his brilliance with us here in Elk Grove. And I am certain to become a serious Tim stalker now so I will be saving for my scrap cruise - someday!
Hope you had a great day too - although I am certain it did not come CLOSE to as great as mine! Thanks Tim!
