I was in the presence of crafting royalty yesterday!! WOOP WOOP WOOP!

I was in Akron at Adventures In Stamping and Tim Holtz was there demoing and sharing of himself. I sat to rest my hurting hip and watch him demo…so not like me at rubber stamping conventions…I’m usually all about the shopping (pardon me if I have ever been distracted). Any who I sat to watch and T!M was just finishing a technique and asked the crowd what we wanted to see next. No one spoke up so I said loudly “JUST PEARL”!


T!M said “just Pearl”?”

QP: “Yep Just Pearl!”

T!M: “Are you sure, just Pearl.”

QP: “Yeeessss Just Pearl. I’m not going to change my mind.”

T!M: “Alright you picked a good product!” And proceeded to show us at least 3 things we could do with the Pearl paint dabber by Ranger.


He was demoing on his signature shipping tags and I thought he was finished so I asked him could I have the tag. T!M said don’t you want me to bling it up! And if you know me there must be bling. And he opened this lovely tool box (which he will be selling in his line soon) and BLINGED IT UP BABY.

Of course T!M wasn’t all I did (JUST PEARL); there was the shopping. First we went to Hollo’s Paper and I picked up some much needed 12 x 12 paper to use in my Cricket. I also got some letter size paper and envelopes. At convention here are the toys that came home to play with me!

Finally after looking at Darcie’s shrink plastic CDS for 10 years I bought some; the new designs pushed me over the edge! Just For Fun is back doing its postage templates and I bought some of T!M’s paper as well as SEI 6X6 paper.


My favorite thing was getting to be with my friends who are like minded!

Happy Stamping!


Please remember my friend and fellow stamper Judy Sanderson along with the missionaries from my church who are in Haiti rebuilding a school.

Hey, Girlfriend, I forgot about Loralie Designs. Glad you got some.
Love your tag! Found some awesome paper at Hollo's for copics.

Holla! You got Tim Holtz to make a special tag for you! You could probably sell it on ebay. LOL. I like the new rubbernecker stamps. I think I'll have to go on line.

Too funny, I got sucked into the shrink plastic stuff at the last stamp show. I got excited by the new digital patterns too. I picked up allof the new colors of the distress inks.

Looks like you had a great time at the stamp convention. Glad you had a good time.

Oh this is absolutely beautiful--the tag is amazing! I have heard great tales about Hollo's. I have a friend who lives in OH, and she travels there to buy pounds of paper! I dream of Hollos--but since I live in FL--no dice...yet. Still planning a trip to OH! lol

All the best--from my hands to yours,
