Let's begin with the explanation of the Tim Holtz fiasco...
As already mentioned, one of the much anticipated new releases was the Tim Holtz dies so while in the Ranger booth, I attempted to video Tim giving us a brief overview of his new line (which I actually LOVE especially the ones shown below!), but as many of you guessed... I pushed the "stop" button when I thought I was pushing the "record" button and MISSED TAPING THE WHOLE THING!!! I didn't realize it until later when I tried to play it back... talk about frustration!! But yet kinda funny as this sort of thing seems to be part of the story of my life :)
I did manage to snag a two second video of him the next day saying "Hi Canada" and later that night Christy and I were in bed blogging. It was REALLY late at night, everyone else was asleep and Christy and I already had the giggles. I wanted to find a photo of Tim's dies to use on the post and so I googled "Tim Holtz dies". What pops up?
Did you mean: tim holtz died
"Tim Holtz died!" I read outloud.
"What???" exclaimed Christy. "Tim Holtz died"? Needless to say, once we both grasped the misunderstanding, we were laughing so hard and so long we could hardly breath!!! So with one last product shot from Tim, let's move on!!!
Some of my other favourite things I saw... so many companies venturing into the "Jewelry" lines like Making Memories... very intriguing!!
One other paper line that caught my eye especially for tween/teen guys was the Little Yellow Bicycle line called "Generation Z"...
Maybe it's because my guy just turned 13 AND he loves soccer, skating, biking, etc. AND it's hard to find really good guy papers. He's not into Guitar Band, but I know a LOT of kids his age are!!
In the HOME DECOR arena, this 7Gypsies Printer Tray caught my eye!! Here's a "before" and "after" shot (see our Canadian Vicki Boutin in there?)
And even though we are home safe and sound, we are still continuing our BLOG GIVEAWAY to receive a $100+ value bundle of CHA goodness!! Winner will be announced on Feb. 1 so continue to enter 3 times a day (once on each blog)... mine, Christy's blog and send comments to Scrapbook Pantry!!
Question of the Day:
What do you keep your basic scrapbooking / crafting tools in at home for easy use and access (ie. scissors, adhesives, pens, trimmer, etc.)? Do you care more about function or cuteness factor?
