My Time With Tim (aka Mr. Holtz!!!)

Hi, Everyone!!!

I've just returned from a most excellent adventure (San Dimas Shout Out!)! I feel relaxed, and more importantly, creatively rejuvinated. Inspired.

This weekend I was able to take a class taught by Tim Holtz in BEAUTIFUL Payson, Arizona! It was the last chance to take his Artful Curio class and his last teaching engagement for the year.

I went in with NO expectations-NO ideas of what I was going to come home with. I didn't even look at the picture of Tim's finished piece that graced the front of the kit!

This way, I was sure to create something that truly MEANT something to ME!!! A sort of scrapbook of found items.

It took no time at all to lose myself in all the pretty trinkets and baubles. I had the best time adding things to my curio!

So many times we find ourselves bogged down in what we SHOULD do. Gifts to create, scrapbooks to fill, deadlines to make. Sometimes it's necessary to just make something that makes us happy! Something that's created just to fill our need to create.

This one's for me...

Until next time!!!
