During the summer I went along to a craft fair to source some new fabric dies and to finally put a face to the name of the lovely person who has for some time now supplied me with dies and all things sizzix through her wonderful on line store http://createwithkate.com/
what I unexpectedly found at the craft fair was the incredible world of paper craft and mixed media crafts, it may seem a bit odd that having used sizzix dies regularly I never made the connection to the paper craft world but I guess when you work with a medium like fabric you tend to associate everything to that particular medium.
Kate however soon put an end to my ignorance and introduced me to all things paper and more importantly to all things Tim Holtz, with all the excitement of a child on Christmas morning I went home with a bag of goodies, papers, inks, stains even little ornate feet, all things I had no idea how to use but a new love affair was begun and I was totally smitten.
Over the last few weeks I've been working on a project to use all these wonderful products and I think it's finally finished, predictably enough it took on a very definite sewing theme and now has pride of place in my workshop,
To love what we do
and share what we love
as we help others enjoy creativity
and worthwhile accomplishments
in this we make a difference
if you are in the vicinity make sure to pay her a visit, a new love affair (even if it is with paper) is guaranteed and what a way to spend these dark winter evenings
