Artsycrafts special event with Tim Holtz

I'm still floating on cloud nine after attending the most amazing workshop with Tim Holtz.
Tim is such a wonderful, witty tutor the 4 hours of his workshop whizzed by so quickly but I achieved completing this box, apart from attaching the feet in that time.
Tim walked around the room explaining, giving tips and answering questions whilst also obligingly signing various item and having photos taken, all done in a totally unflappable style.
Mario king of kits was at hand with replacement bits and pieces for when things might go wrong.
Alain aka Mr Ranger supplied us with a great kit bag to use for the class which we got to keep afterwards.
I'm so pleased that I took my copy of Tim's book "A Compendium of Curiosities" which he personalised and signed for me.
I'm so grateful to Lin and Leandra for organising this tremendous event, of course it wouldn't have been an ArtsyCrafts event without one of their fabulous classes along with all their wonderful helpers, which I'll tell you about tomorrow.

Inchie for a special person

Stamped onto an acrylic inch with stazon then coloured in using promakers on the reverse, then sealed with seafoam embossing powder. Edged with gold pentouch. If you're wondering who the special person is, clue is in the stamp ;-)

Ball Chain Charm Bracelet

I've made a quick Ball chain charm bracelet to wear for a very special Tim Holtz Artsy Crafts event happening this Thursday. I got the idea from the super talented Lin Brown when I saw these on her blog

This was really a quick make, the beads are covered in the most delicious colbalt blue gloop (Viva decor Inka Gold) and so were my fingers for awhile ;-)

Sorry I'm a terrible blogger. What ever happened to January!!
Hope you've all had a great start to the new year.
This is my first attempt at playing with Paverpol I started this mermaid back in the summer but she hasn't seen the light of day since then.
I took her into the garden whilst the dogs were out for a walk (the pup has totally destroyed the garden and not to be trusted) and took a couple
of photos to get an idea on how I want her to develop. I like her slightly alien look so I'm not sure whether I'll give her any hair yet or not.
