Wow...wow...wow

Hi folks...I'm still on Cloud 9...running on a great big Tim Holtz adrenalin high...would have no idea of what day it is if it wasn't for the calendar on the wall...suffering a little bit from that after the event deflated feeling...you know the one when you look forward to something for so long and it passes in a whizz but the memories will stay with me forever of a fabulous fun day meeting up with old friends and making lots of new. And it's another thricely word excited post today...I'm in "wow wow wow" mode at the very very generous goodie bag from Ranger and Tim and amazed that I managed to squeeze all this stuff into my teeny weeny hand luggage bag for the journey home but excellent packing skills or lots of where's there's a will there's a way crafty determination won the day...
I'll treasure this gorgeous Idea-ology bag forever...personalised by Tim with a very special "just for you Kath...it's our little secret" extra addition...he's so sweet.
Personalised Compendium of Curiosities II and Idea-ology Class apron
 and lots and lots of other goodies...far too many to mention individually...
and here's what we made...a "love it...love it...love it" Journeys Of The Past" Tag book

the reason for me ending up with the muckiest fingers ever on my Tim Holtz journey but nothing that the all important removal tool...the fabulous scrubbie kindly provided in the goodie bag couldn't handle...thank goodness for that...no way could I have appeared for dinner with my mega mucky paws...although after said cleaning operation the sink in the hotel room didn't look quite so pristine...think hippo wallowing in a soapy muddy hollow...one toilet roll later...a bit of elbow grease scrubbing and voila the housekeeping staff will never know one mucky crafter had been in residence.
it's still a work in progress...

 loving Tim's new stencils...another addition to the ever growing must-have list...
I need to look out some personal photos and stuff to put my own spin on it and it's going to take every inch of willpower to clear the decks today...set aside all the lovely new goodies and get back to the work stuff....goodness knows what the cubbyhole crew were up to in my absence...not tackling the crafty list...that's for sure.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

  14. What a lovely gift to receive. He truly is an amazing guy. You must have had kittens trying to get all those liquids on the plane though!
    Enjoy the rest of the day and look forward to seeing your take on his ideas.
