Tim Holtz Curiosities... woohooo....



OMG.... I'm so excited as I have my very own copy of the new Tim Holtz "A Compendium Of Curiosities" book.... even though I don't have the picture card that would have came with the package from QVC had I ordered it there but I can live without that...
There is quite a funny story to this as I placed an order last week for my book and received a dispatch note on the Wednesday afternoon... well yesterday I still didn't have my order so I contacted the company. They advised it should have been delivered last Thursday and recommended that I check with my local sorting office... Now to cut a long story short... I was demonstrating in Dundee last Thursday so I presumed that had a parcel arrived it would have been left with a neighbour and a note put through my door... not the case I'm afraid... the postman had infact left the package in my garage but not put a note through my door !!!! Can you believe that my little bundle of yummy goodness lay undetected in my garage for the best part of a week.... shocking I know and pardon the pun... rather distressing as well... lol.

Here is everything that I received in my delicious package all ready to be utilised.



This is just one of the techniques in the book which uses grungepaper to make die cut shapes and boy don't these just look amazing once they have been shaped... I've never personally used grungepaper but Mamma Kath swears by it so I know it's gonna be a good investment. Now all I need is the time to play...

I also decided to purchase some of these gorgeous sequin flowers by Prima... they are lovely and will make a gorgeous embellishment to use on a card or scrap page but at £2.50 a pack... I'm not sure I'll make any further purchases as they are pretty small so unless it's a very special card you wouldn't want to use too many at the one time as they work out at 25p a flower.

Well now that I have shared my new yummy goodies with you all I had best get on with this damn essay I have to do... today is my final day for completion so it's pressure time here in my house.... good thing being that I can take time to reward myself for completing it by having a play with all my new stash.. what more could a girl ask for... lol.

All of my new goodies were purchased from Craft Obsessions who are selling the Tim Holtz book for £19.95.

Hope you all have a fabulous day ahead full of heaps of happy crafting...

See you all again soon.

Hi Lorraine, looking forward to seeing what you do with your new goodies. Ordered my book as a TSV from QVC and got it really quickly and it's still sitting waiting for me to do something with it. Still never had time.
