I FINALLY got to meet Genevieve of Another Creative Outlet in person. We met up at the RSC earlier today and hung out *probably for hours???* at Tim's table. So nice meeting you Genevieve!
happy photo of me and Genevieve after we just met
The Cookie Story: Genevieve had blogged yesterday that she was going to bake some cookies to share with her friends at the convention, so I asked her to save me a little bag. Well, she gave me the cutest bag all tied with a pretty ribbon that I IMMEDIATELY opened and commenced to eating every single cookie in the bag! I bet that didn't look too lady-like - YIKES!
The Tim Tag Story: This is my story and I'm stickin' to it! LOL
I asked Tim if the tag he was creating at the time had been spoken for. It had - by my friend Mary Valleau. No worries. Tim told me that the NEXT tag would be mine.
After he had created the background for MY TAG, he let me pick any set of stamps from the rack that I wanted him to use on MY TAG. Now how cool was THAT?! Ooooh, if you know me, then you know I had fun with rubbing THAT one in *hee hee*. And can you see the letter "S" that Tim included on my tag?
photo of Genevieve coveting my tag and her friend Renee trying to steal it! she doesn't look all that happy NOW does she?
Ok, I'll cut to the chase. Genevieve was coveting my tag (see photo above) and asked Tim if he would make HER one. Well, being the nice guy Tim IS, he obliged. I guess he just didn't want to hurt her feelings. *like I said, this is my story and I'm stickin' to it!*
When Tim started to stamp Genevieve's tag, he asked her what stamps she wanted him to use. She told him that anything he did with a bird was just fine with her and that she was open to ANYTHING! Yeah yeah yeah . . . make me look like I'm the whining DIVA!! Well, if you want to read all about her tag . . . or should I say her BRAGGING about her tag . . . you can read about it HERE on her blog.
Ok, ok . . . you're going to see it on her blog anyway, so I guess I'll go ahead and tell you, I coveted HER Tim Tag as WELL. But wait my friends!! . . . look at THIS!
I need to get over this, so let me just move on to the rest of the convention *sigh*
Cruise Buddies: It was like old home week at the convention! I got to see quite a few ladies that were on the recent Tim Holtz cruise *big smiles* Here are a few photos . . .

SandraTim at the Table: It's funny, my friend Linda Bucci (we went to the RSC together today) told me after the convention, that she was surprised I was at Tim's table so long *most of the entire day!* after being on the cruise just last month for 8 days. She said she would have thought I would have learned everything.
I told her that EVERY time I watch Tim I learn something new. I guess he just always has something up his sleeve to teach us. And yes, I've watched all of his videos, I follow his blog and we're Facebook friends. Ooooooh, I wonder if I'm a Tim Holtz "groupie" or something? Do I need to seek medical help?
Update: Tim using Copic Markers the Alcohol Ink Refillable Pens.

I remembered to take my cruise tote with me this morning so I could have Tim sign it.
another one of the tags that Tim made at the table. cool background!
I guess I need to do some shopping at Trader Joe's. Look at the tote bag above that one of my friend's friend was carrying at the convention today! I love the colors, the graphics, the size, the shape . . . yep, I've got to have one of these.
Saw my friend Linda Forrest from Stampmaiden's Artventures at the show. Look at the package of goodies she brought me. Thanks again Linda *smiles* - nice seeing you today!
At 2pm I headed over to the artist trading card contest. I added some more Platinum Stickles to one of the cruise atc's and submitted it. Nope, didn't win anything. I thought with the watercolored & laced stenciled background technique . . . oops, do you think the Scotch thing offended anyone? *hee hee*
These were the winners . . .
It's back home now to the laundry, dusting, and vacuuming. Need to finish this housework stuff up so I can "play" tomorrow!
I hope you had as much fun as I did today! And for anyone that is visiting my blog for the first time and doesn't know my sense of humor, I really DO like Genevieve! *smiles*
