Designing for Tim Holtz???

Can you believe it???  Yes, you read that right.  Still not even comprehending the magnitude of such an opportunity, I will give you a little history on how all this even came about...

I am sure most of you already follow the blog, One Lucky Day.  Last fall, I was searching the internet for some vintage inspiration, and stumbled across One Lucky Day.  It was love at first sight for me, I seriously spent hours looking through years worth of posts! 

In November, One Lucky Day created and sold the most fabulous "Oh Christmas Tree" kit.  Let me tell you, it has to be the most amazing kit/project I have ever laid eyes on.  As soon as I saw it, I knew my mother and I just had to have it.  After e-mail communication with the ever amazing Paula Cheney, the rest is history.

Paula Cheney is the Creative Coordinator for Tim Holtz.  She found my blog simply from our e-mails back and forth in regards to the kit.   A few weeks later, I received an e-mail from Paula asking me if I would be interested in designing some samples for the upcoming CHA convention, and specifically for Tim Holtz!!!  Hello, that was a no brainer for me, who wouldn't jump at the chance! 

Getting to play with amazing new product and dies, I created 4 samples that made it all the way out to California.  I hope my creations have done Tim & Paula proud.  I can't wait to see the booth displays as they are unveiled tomorrow.  From all this, I have found that opportunities arise when you least expect it.  You never know what amazing experiences await you around the next corner. 

I want to give a special thank you to Paula.  For if it weren't for you, none of this would have been possible for me.  Thank you for appreciating my design style, and for choosing me to be one of Tim's designers.  It has truly been an honor.  :)

To all my readers out there, stay tuned as I start unveiling all my projects using tons of Tim's new products!  Happy Friday everyone!
