Tim Holtz Configurations

I did not get that far with my Tim Holtz Configurations box because I had some unexpected company (I am not a fan of visitors who show up at my doorstep without calling me first). Despite the interruption, I was able to complete the cover (somewhat). Perhaps the most irritating part is that I will not be able to get back to it until next weekend.  C'est la vie!

Made in the USA - my mission!

I am on a mission to find craft products made in the USA.  Today I purchased Martha Stewart craft paint at Michaels and I was incredibly relieved and excited to see "Made in the USA" on the label.

Who doesn't know the name Tim Holtz?

I love to shop at Hobby Lobby because it often carries those hard to find craft products that many of the other large craft retailers do not carry.  It is where I pick up Graphic 45 paper pads and Tim Holtz, Ranger Industries and Sizzix products.  So you can only imagine how surprised I was to hear that Hobby Lobby employees did not know who Tim Holtz was.  My jaw nearly dropped to the ground.  I firmly believe that all crafters have a keen knowledge of Tim Holtz, and I was perplexed that retailers who carried his product would not.

Welcome 2012!

I must say good riddens to 2011 because it was not so kind to me.  I have decided that 2012 will be different, and in the words of Tim Holtz: I will live the life I have always imagined.
