Journaling on my experience as a mixed media artist. I love trying new techniques. You might find anything from altered art like books, tip ins, ATC's, fat books, watercolors, scrapbooking, stamping, cards, antiques, potpourri. I hope to add items you enjoy for sale. I have been dabbling in art since I received my first box of crayons. I especially love the heritage or vintage look. judy

On the new Yahoo group All Things Tim the moderator , Gloria asked who had not met Tim Holtz in person. ME I answered. Gloria had surprises from Tim for 4 lucky people to be given in a random draw from those who answered. What can I say -Tim is my idol. I love his style, creativity, products, tutorials, enthusiasm, and the list goes on. He made my Christmas last year when he did the 12 Holiday tags tutorial on his blog. Friday one of the surprise packages was received. , I was disappointed. No packages in the mail Saturday either. Today I received 2 packages. I was hoping to receive Tim's new Holiday stamps I ordered last week. I did receive my order from . I LOVE the word keys!!!The other package was marked Surprise from Gloria. Instant tears came to my eyes. I WON!!! I won a 342 pc mixed minis plain Idea-ology grungeboard set AND a tag made for me and signed by Tim Holtz, my idol. THANK YOU TIM!!!!! Thanks to Gloria for mailing. too . I have a piece of treasure. Gratefully, Judy

You lucky girl! And after some of the recent trials you've had -- I can't think of a more deserving person for a great surprise!
P.S. thanks for the supporting comments on today's HannahGrey political discussion -- I wish everyone shared your approach!

Well how cool is that! I am thinking you really deserve this. Now I can't wait to see what you make with the grungeboard.

Congratulations Judy, how very exciting! THoltz is an all around talented and neat guy isn't he!
Brigthest of Blessings to you and your family. Your journal cover art is really beautiful and I do think there would be a market out there for something as special and useful as that!

Thanks for leaving such a kind comment on my blog regarding my Piano Hinge book. I really appreciate it.

You are SO lucky to have this opportunity with Tim. He is such a wonderful teacher on TV and through his DVDs, I'm sure he's even more awesome in person. Congratulations on your timely surprise.
