Tim at the Barn.
Well...yesterday I had the most enjoyable time.
I drove to my online friend's house (our first time in meeting in real life) Is and on to The Craft Barn 15 minutes further. Isabelle demos there so it was really handy that she knew where it was, where to park etc . The afternoon's agenda for me was buying a few crafty items....watching a free two hour demo given by Tim Holtz...a bit more craft shopping(well a lot more actually) - to stretch my legs you understand mid way through the demo lol- welllllll while I was walking round the shop I thought I may aswell buy a few more bits rofl.
The demo itself was very interesting. Its the first demo I've ever been to. I'm more a 'try it and see' type artist but yesterday was just my cuppa!! I picked up a few tips and really enjoyed watching someone else work through examples at such a pace. Tim Holtz was very 'easy listening'...maybe its because its such a female dominated area(stamping and mixed media) that its a real pleasure to see a guys point of view and approach, and was happy to answer any questions.
So, now I have a few new bits and pieces to play with (my hubby handed me some money as I left the house to treat myself) so keep an eye out for new creations!
