My first post!

Welcome fellow crafters!  I’m very excited to have finally created my blog!  I hope you enjoy your time while you’re here, and feel a bit more inspired when you leave. 


I decided that with the start of Linda Ledbetter’s Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge, now would be a good time to enter blogdom.  You can catch all of the details at StudioL3.  This challenge involves making a foam stamp, a technique you can find on page 66 of Tim Holtz's new book, Compendium of Curiosities Volume II.  You can check out his new website at TimHoltz.com, and order an autographed copy from him!  If you'd like to subscribe to his blog (and really, who wouldn't?) there's a link at the bottom of his site, in the middle column. 
Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring this week’s challenge!  Please give them a visit, they are wonderful!
I love gears and hardware, so I thought my first tag should embrace all that is metal (and Tim of course!).


Hope you like it!
