Some days the postman only brings me bills. Today brought some very different mail - wondrous stuff. The first package I was expecting and I knew from it's feel exactly what it was - Tim Holtz's latest book - "A Compendium of Curiosities". My first impression... it's rather small; second impression on opening...who cares about size! I'm going to have some fun with this.
The second package was what transformed the day into Great.
I'm a member of the yahoo group All Things Tim that discusses the work of Tim Holtz. A group of fellow Australians were bemoaning our lack of access to his products and the cost of them here. A member of the group, the lovely Linda Hoffman from California, took pity on me and sent me this wondrous package of goodies that she created from his products: there are full size sheets coloured with alcohol inks, die cuts galore, a huge variety of embossed card pieces, sheets of grungeboard and grungepaper.
This was an incredibly generous act that made my day. I couldn't stop smiling as I kept sorting through it all. I will certainly enjoy using all these goodies. Thank you so much Linda.
