As it's nearly at the end of the year and in celebration of all things Tim, I've got a bit of a surprise for you guys. I have a blog givaway!!!!!! It has been quite an amazing year this year where Tim is concerned, so if you are new to my blog let's do a little recap of events. The beginning of the year Tim launched tons of fabulous new products with Ranger Industries, who of course are masters of all things inky. The guys at Sizzix produced Tim's wonderful dies and embossing folders which have just turned out to be the hottest products on the market....we can't keep those babies in stock!!!! Oh, and I mustn't forget the Vagabond, Tim's electronic die cutting machine......this will be available here in the UK in February. Then of course Advantus produced Tim's Ideaology range and I have to say these embellishments have to be my favourites, I love to be able to add lots of detail to my work and these gorgeous goodies help me to do that with ease. Tonic are the manufacturers of Tim's brilliant scissors and last but not least Stampers Anonymous manufacture Tim's range of stamps.
During the summer I got an email from Tim inviting me to be part of his design team. I could not believe my eyes when I read the email, I must have read it three of four times before I convinced myself that it was from him and not one of my friends playing a game on me. I enjoyed every moment of the challenge, it made me push myself just that little bit further with my creative projects as I now had a standard to live up to. Sadly, due to Tim's overwhelming commitments, it wasn't something that realistically he could continue with. If he can't give something his all, then it is better to not do it and I admire him for admitting that he is only human like the rest of us and it was not to be, but I thank him for the opportunity and I will always continue to use his products as I just love them.
Next came the breaking news that Tim was able to accept an invitation that Leandra and I offered to be guest tutor at one of our Artsycrafts events next February......how lucky are we???? Leandra and I are also teaching at this event but how excited are we to be able to offer a class here in the UK taught by Tim himself. It is a unique opportunity and I have no idea why Leandra and I were so worried about selling the tickets as we managed to sell them all in under forty minutes!!!!! We would have been happy if we sold them all be the end of the year....I think we were a tad naive don't you???
Tim is more than generous when it comes to sharing his ideas, techniques and creativity and just like the last few years, he didn't disappoint us, this year he came up with another "12 tags of Christmas" to inspire everyone. If you havn't seen Tim's step by step instructions for these tags click here and all will be revealed, you really need to check this out.
So as the year comes to an end and we eagerly await CHA to find out what Tim has in store for us next year, all you have to do to have a chance of becoming the proud owner of the bundle of Tim's goodies is to leave a comment here on my blog, mention the giveaway on your blog with a link back here....simples!!! It's a scrummy bundle of stash......good luck......I hope you win. The winner will be announced on New Years Day.
