An Absolutely Wonderful Weekend!

The weekend finished with two more great classes with Tim Holtz.  I am absolutely exhausted but I had a great time and I learned a lot.  I'll try to pass along some tips and show you some of the step by step on the projects we made over the next few weeks.

Absolutely Everything really does have just about everything, including this cool license plate sign.  Kate and all of the staff were absolutely delightful and did everything they could to make sure that absolutely everyone had a wonderful time!

The shop had lots of eye candy - wherever you looked there was something interesting to see.  Here are a few photos of one of the many creative displays in the shop.  This set of tags shows the colors of the Distress Stains in an absolutely charming way!

Here is a peek at my final project of the weekend.  This was called "Charmed Possessions" and we spent several hours making beads and working with charms to create this incredible assembly of interesting objects.  Can you guess how we made the beads that separate the charms?

If you ever get a chance to take a class with Tim (with the incredible assistance of Mario who keeps everything running smoothly) don't miss the opportunity.  They supply everything you need - you just show up and make incredible things!

Have a great Monday - I'll be regrouping and helping out son finalize the lease on his new apartment.

  2. Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend. I'd guess the beads are rolled paper.

  3. Did you
    use paper and glue.? Ive seen beads made out of magazine pages....

  4. You are so lucky to take a Tim Holtz class. Looks like rolled paper beads. Looks so much better with Tim Holtz Paper.
