A Timmietastic Workshop

Morning folks.....let me tell you that 4 hours of playing with Tim Holtz is a real tonic for the crafty soul....a definite must have experience for every Timmie fan...hard to put into words.....even more fabulous than fabulous.....he's a great teacher....so laid back and has a great sense of humour and although it was fast paced he made us all feel so relaxed....it's all about having fun and boy oh boy did we have loads of fun with Tim and the lovely girls on our table....
but none of it would have been possible without the Dream Team Holtz Machine
Tim...Mario and Alain from Ranger.....the amount of prep that goes into a workshop for 288 crafty addicts doesn't bear thinking about...4 weeks of cutting scoring die cutting and collating all the bits and pieces for each kit and thanks to Mario and his sneaky peek Twitter pics of kitting in progress we were all whipped up into a crafty anticipation frenzy.... 
Each and every square of paper for our configuration box had been pre-cut...scored and fitted perfectly...
and what's in that jam packed goodie charm bag.....how naughty of you Tim making us wait until after tea break for the big reveal....
the almost finished Configurations Box...just needs a few more embellishments....a bit of tweaking and the feet fitted before it takes pride of place in the cubbyhole....


 and thanks to Tim and Ranger's generosity....I still have lots of goodies to play with
but as you know all good things come to an end and too soon our time with Tim was over.....wonderful memories to take home and wooo...hooooo Tim kindly personalized my Timmie Apron...how cool....
After a break for lunch and a crafty shop we were all set for another fun class with the lovely Lin and Leandra making something entirely different but equally as gorgeous which I will share tomorrow.

I am turning a very strong shade of green - I live 'downunder' so there is probably no chance I will ever do one of his classes

Well, we all knew it wouldn't disappoint, but I guess as experiences go in the crafty world, it's fairly unbeatable, huh!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

wow, what a fantastic project. sounds like you really had an awesome time!

KateB said...

I agree, meeting tim was one of the highlights I had in 2009...his staff truly works extremely hard to make each moment magical; the behind the scenes stuff is truly amazing...I think when he goes to Disneyland,he grabs some of their pixie dust and uses it for us! Great projects and love all your creations :)
