Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry 101 Done and Dusted!

I have had the busiest but BEST ever 2 weeks of my life so far this year.  I have been participating in the CC101 online class with Tim Holtz and he has been so generous with his information, product knowledge and I can't begin to imagine how much time and effort he has put into it.  If you did not do it but still want to, you can register and participate at any time in the future.  Just click on the participant button on my side bar and you will be taken straight there.

The tags above are the culmination of all the "homework" we have been given to practice the knowledge and skills he has imparted from each days class.  I have participated in the last few years of 12 tags of Christmas and Grungy Mondays challenges as well as read and tried all the techniques in his Compendium of Curiosities book 1 but nothing has come close to learning directly from the "professor" one on one in my home studio!

Now I need to get my inky paws on his Compendium of Curiosities book 2 which I might just order on line from him directly where I can get an autographed copy...

and before you say it...I will...yes I am a Tim Holtz product junkie or addict, call me what you want in that line and you would be quite right!

There should be an AA group for people like me, but at least I know I am not alone...

"Hello, my name is Belinda Basson (aka Bella) and I am a Tim Holtz Product Addict!"

  8. Hi my name is Sara and I have zero impluse control when it comes to all things Tim. Ahh, so much better than just about anything other addiction. This one makes me smile, calms the stress, and I get to play with color. What could be better? I am way behind on homework; we haven't received the markers yet so I didn't even open that day but I actually used the knowledge this morning to come up with the right products and the right delivery method. I felt so smart...tee hee. Thanks Tim. I'm happy to be a devotee'
