WOYWW #434- The After Tim Holtz edition!

So, back in the land of reality, after a fabulous workshop at Art From The Heart, Harrowgate, with Tim Holtz & Mario Rossi.

A wonderful time was had by all, and 4 hours just flew by.
 At the end, we got goodies to rake away with us- the two stencils we used were made especially for the workshop, so won't ever be available to buy.

 Top left is an Apron, and bottom left is a bag for 'putting your thoughts and ideas into'. Those things we jot down on a bit of paper, then promptly forget what we did with them.

All those came in this bag with the Creative Chemistry Live UK Edition on, and our lanyards.

Next came a folder, with refill inserts, to store all our tags from the lessons in. Plus the specially printed badge for the front.

The folder itself, & inserts are available to buy, and a great way of storing tag samples.

  A notebook, to write thoughts and ideas in.

Again, this is available to buy as part of the regular Idea-ology range.

Final gift was a piece of 'Good Luck' jewellery from the Assemblage line.

Finally, I took my Compendium of Curiosities, and Distressables books with me, just in case I could get them signed. And sign them he did, quite happily.

Everything was so well organised, and both Tim & Mario took time with people, making them feel they were an important part of the day, it was a wonderful atmosphere.

I'll do another post later in the week on all the tags, and I'll bring them to the crop with me.

Even taking time for a silly photo!

I'm feeling much better this week than I did last, by Saturday, the worst of the side effects were easing off, which I was pleased about. Didn't expect them to shift quite so fast.I am still tired, but I think Sunday was such a long day, so accounts for some of that, and I have a really painful butt, as I sipped over in the bathroom on Saturday afternoon, and landed firmly on my rear, so it feels bruised.

Anyhow, I'm done, bed is calling. I'll be round during the day today. Hugs to everyone.

Oh you've made me reminisce meeting Timmy back in 2013. You do get loads of stuff to take away but those stencils are AMAZING. Yes he signs anything so I got him to sign the apron they gave us and Mario too. What an amazing adventure. BJ#3

Love that final photo! My you did get a lot of goodies - and a good time too. I have one of those tag books as I did a workshop at CHA long ago with Marje Kemper (for Ranger) and it is good to know I can buy the slip covers - been wanting some for a long time. Must get to know where from from you.
See you Saturday, sorry about the bruised bum.

Brilliant Shaz - hanging out with celebrities! What an adventure! I've looked into AFTH workshops but they're so far away!

It looks like it was great fun with TH I love everything the man does... such a creative mind... and the bonus was you felt well enough on the day to enjoy it... I'm so glad about that... sorry about your butt but hopefully the pain would have gone before the crop.... Have a happy week ahead... May #19

Elizabeth said...

Glad to hear you are feeling better this week, Shaz. Meeting up with the lovely Tim Holtz must have cheered you immensely - the man seems to be a natural charmer, as does Mario, and the workshop looks like fun too. Love all the goodies you were given whilst there. The bag for putting your thoughts and ideas in should prove to be very useful. Looking forward to meeting you at the weekend. Hugs, Elizabeth x #21
