Day Full of Crafties, lots of new stash and teenage giggles...

No words will ever explain what a fantastic day it was yesterday!

It started with a fabulous workshop with Lin and Leandra from PaperArtsy. Look at this gorgeous project we made!

And I was also extremely lucky to win a bag of ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS crafty goodies! I still can't believe my luck, ideally I would love to have the next week off to craft and craft and craft....! ;)

I was sitting next to Kim Costello. I am a big fan of hers, she regularly designs for the Craft Stamper and you can see her amazing work here. We met originally during one of the workshops with Sarah Anderson at the Stamp Attic ;).

Then this long awaited moment finally arrived!!!! ..... Drum roll, please....

Ta dah...!!!

Blimey...honestly...wooow.... ha ha.....blushing...phew! Now, that was the most embarassing moment in my entire life! Well, I've never before met a celebrity, who I really liked ;) I've been in a close proximity of some famous politicians but let's be honest, that's not really something to get excited about, is it??? lol ;)

I must have made a complete fool of myself... When I asked for a piccie and an autograph (yes, I did that, too!) I tried to act normally and perhaps throw in a funny, light-hearted comment... You know, to show that meeting a "celeb" is my daily bread! In the end it must have just looked like teenage giggles... Gosh, what an embarassment! ha ha ha!

We were altering a configuration box...

Here's the completed project...

All those fantastic embellishments for the box were part of the generous workshop kit! How great is that?????

I even managed to incorporate the workshop badges, one with my name and the other with my lunch option lol ;)

And can you see this coolest ever candle light behind the vintage photo?

At the end of the workshop Tim was presented with a fab album/book of inchies created by all these humble crafters that took part in the PaperArtsy event. I didn't know about the inchies (that will teach me to read all relevant messages in the future!). So I contributed to the book with a little altered card, which I just happened to have on me that day! lol ;)

I actually made this for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #33 (metal altered with alcohol inks) so it was only right to attach it to the keep sake album for Tim ;))) 

Well, I'd better be going... time to do some crafting!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

I tell you - that Tim Holtz gets around! I feel like I just saw him on someone else's post just the other day... Don't be embarassed; he's probably used to crafty ladies getting all giggly on him by now. :D

Your card and projects look fabulous!

Hi Joanna - wasn't it just fab! I felt like a groupie at the end of it all - but he was just amazing - I found it really fun, and the banter just kept it going. But I really liked that he kept coming round and checking that everybody was OK and offering help where needed.

Wouldn't it be fab if could be done again!


Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Oh wow wow wow.... I am so jealous now, I want to be there!!!!
Look at all those beautiful work done at the workshop, I so want to be there!!!!
Hey, do you know another blogger Deb Hickman, I happened to learn from her blog that she attended the same event, maybe you already know each other, what a chance!

Shirl said...

Oooooo Joanna you must have been in 7th heaven and what beautiful work you have created. Your metal tag is to die for truly scrumptious and delicious looking. Lucky you, we have nothing like these workshops in Ireland.
Hugs Shirley x x

Suzanne Brookfield said...

WOW ...Joanna...have you come down from the ceiling yet lol? I would still be swinging from the chandeliers. It looks as though a Fab time was had and all your work looks stunning...surprised you could concentrate though! Luve from a jealous Suz x

Your Configuration is spectacular-- just overflowing with wonderful things. The candlelight looks amazing! And, your CCC piece is gorgeous. What a treat-- that altered metal is absolutely perfect!
