I know, kinda corny but it works! Haha. Yesterday was a pretty, amazing day. Let me explain a little. For the past few months, during this whole “shelter in place” , I have been following Tim Holtz on his FaceBook lives. Every Saturday, since April, he has been doing a live demo of his Distress products. It has basically challenged me to get back in my craft room and use all those yummy products that he designs. Since the beginning of that time, I have been posting more on FB and Instagram and have since given into the peer pressure from my husband and son to create a YouTube channel as well. If you haven’t yet, you should check it out. (Shameless plug there) Anyway, Tim Holtz has been encouraging people to post on Instagram and use the #timholtzdemo when you post, just as a confirmation to him that his demos are inspiring people to get in their craft rooms and MAKE! Well, for those of you that follow J Cooper Creates on Facebook, and @jcoopercreates on instagram, you know I have been making up a storm. Haha! Once a week, Tim picks three people from the instagram posts as winners and sends them a package of goodies and something that he made during the demos. I was so excited yesterday, when I received the notification from Instagram! I must admit there was a little fan geeking! Haha.
Then, as if that wasn’t enough, I received what I like to refer to as “Happy Mail”. That’s anytime I receive crafting supplies in the mail. Haha. I received the new Distress Color I ordered from Simon Says Stamp. The name of the new color is “Speckled Egg”, and YES! I needed one of every medium. Needless to say I couldn’t wait to see what I could do with it. So, Simon Says Stamp does a Wednesday challenge, as well as the Monday one and today they were showcasing whimsy stamps and “anything goes”.
Above is a pic of my entry. I am loving this new color. I didn’t quite get the whole “whimsy stamps” thing. I am hoping paper dolls count as whimsy. It’s definitely any thing goes. Haha. Unfortunately, I did not take any process photos, but I do have the products used in the picture. I hope that helps. Please, feel free to ask any questions. I will be happy to answer.
Talk to you soon,
