You are my inspiration!

I look at your blog everyday, sometimes it makes me smile, sometimes laugh out loud and sometimes bawl my eyes out, but I always feel better after I have visited!

Love all your 'stuff'! Someday I will have it all!!!!

Congratulations Lulabelle you get Beetle Crusher Tim.....

Now that all the tickets are out in the big bad world, I thought we might have a bit of fun with Tim. So I am launching a "Where in the world is Tim".?

I want you to take photos of yourselves in unusual places clutching your Tim tickets. The wierder the better. Send them in to me, and the most unusual and the funniest will win something special. C'mon get your imaginations going and get snapping.

Wanted to say thankyou to the lovely Ali who treated me to this little beauty..

For those who don't know, I collect old books, especially children's books and especially Enid Blyton's childrenn's books..!!!

Did you spot my much coveted copy of The Three Golliwogs..???? Be still my beating heart....

Heres a few more of my favourite "grown up" books...

And my collection is mahoosive now, lol.

I'm going to leave you with this video, filmed at CHA. It contains the one an only Tim Holtz, with everything you ever wanted to know about the new Distress Stains from Ranger. Pay attention now..!!!!

I wish I lived close by to come on Kates workshop. Enid Blyton was my favourite author as a child. Her books didnt do me any harm. I shall be coming back o watch the video link later tonight, as off to a meeting now.

Love the old books - I'm trying to find an old Ladybird alphabet book - the new one is nowhere near as lovely!

And thank you for the video link - or do I mean that? I now want ALL of the distress stains!!! I knew I would once I'd seen a demo - I should have been strong and not watched it, but it's too late now, the damage is done, and now I know I NEED them!
