Vintage Kitchen Swap and Tim Holtz

I received my swap goodies from Tina. Just take a look at everything she sent me. First the vintage apron. The hand carved bird stamp. The magnets are from pictures out of vintage cookbooks. The milk glass. The cobalt blue pitcher. I love cobalt blue. Thanks Tina for all the goodies. Your are a great swap partner and hostess.
Last Saturday I took 2 classes from Tim Holtz. at Mystic Paper. The above picture are from the first class. Industrial Grunge. The background is using his new line of Grunge Board. This stuff is fantastic. The kits were so full I still have enough left to make a couple more. If you ever have a chance to take a class with Tim. Run don't walk to sign up. He is awesome. He is just so darn cute and funny. His classes are incredible. I can't say enough about him. Of course I once again forgot my camera. So no pictures of everyone having a great time.

The second class, Vintage Trinkets. This class was also wonderful. I love the bird necklace. The bracelet are buttons we made from clear acrylic buttons. It is then wired onto the rubber tube. Very cleaver way of doing this and I not sure I can even explain how to do it. I'm kicking myself that I did not sign up for the third class. Elements, go to his blog and check it out. I came away so inspired. I can hardly wait to get started on some fun projects using Grunge Board
