So Tim Holtz is over in the UK. We all watched him on QVC demoing and eagerly waiting for him to travel to Newport Pagnell to teach us in a workshop.
My friend and neighbour Gabby and I planned to travel up on Wednesday, stop over night to be fresh as daisies for the class on Thursday.
I was all packed and raring to go... we were told to bring scissors and pokey tool... so not much to pack. We left later than planned as Gabby was checking her list to ensure we had everything so we set off about 12.10.
On to the motorway when I happened to say to Gabby that I hoped Tim would be able to sign our Cabinet of Curiosities book.....Oh dear, calamity! Gabby forgot her book and a few pieces for a Thank you message we made for Tim. About turn at the next Junction - back home to get the book.
Then we hit the road again and did not encounter any traffic at all...There is a God.
We were staying in Olney (click to read more).
Our 1st stop was LB CRAFTS the shop of Linda Brown who along with Leandra Franich from
PAPER ARTSY had organised our workshop with Tim.
After the browsing around the shops we had a look around this quaint little town.
We stopped at this Delicatessen and had a Coffee - beautiful coffee I might add....but just check out the colours in the shop.
WOW! it was so pretty...don't believe me, come take a look...
The bed was so comfortable and I was thinking I could quite happily live there.
Gabby was staying in the main house... come check it out.
I am sure you are looking at these pictures and wishing you were there, right?
anyway would HIGHLY recommend staying here.
Then we headed of to the hotel where the Workshops were being held and me up with some girls who I was meeting for the 1st time, but had interacted with on Facebook.
Anyway the crowd of girls increased in the bar and we sat chatting and laughing till it was time to head back to the Guest house so we could be up bright and early...
So as not to bore you I will blog about the workshop tomorrow
Hope you come back
