tim holtz...that is! What an inspiration this man is to so many people. He is genuine and generous beyond measure.

I have been most fortunate to attend four classes taught by Tim. Let me share...

This is a book he taught in one of the classes in Dallas, Texas sponsored by Stamp Asylum. We learned so many distress ink tips and got to work with his awesome grunge board and Idealogy line of embellishments.

That same day in the afternoon we then made this "Creative Blocks" project. This is my version of the project. We learned to do wax encaustics and used some little miniature canvases to add even more dimension. We all got one of the little black hearts - handmade by Mario using Utee. We could then paint it and decorate it however we were inspired.

Tim and his awesome assistant, Mario, are always willing to stop and pose for a photo with the class participants. He is never ever too busy for us! :)

The second day of classes Tim taught us to make a Configurations Box. He had tons...I mean tons...of goodies for us to choose from to create our own special memory cabinet. He really is the most generous person I have ever met.

Here he is again...taking time for another photo op!

I tell you...these boys are the best! Luv 'em both!

In a previous post from yesterday I mentioned that I had the opportunity to attend Creative Escape in August 2009. Tim was one of the instructors at that event. He was the fav!

In the class at Creative Escape Tim taught us how to make this oh-so-cute travel journal complete with photo holders. It sits in this darling little bitty suitcase. His imagination is simply amazing...and never ending!

I am now a member of the Yahoo group All Things Tim. It is a wonderful copy of ladies...and a few men...who love tim and his talent. We have super swaps and exciting exchanges, we trade tips and share ideas. Won't you check us out at

Thanks for joining in my little tribute to T!m.

Blessings, denise :D
