Totally in the pink - TIM HOLTZ pix!


Tim with the Blade Rubber Design Team - Sue on the far left, then me, Tim, Chris and Liz. Did you notice Tim had his hand on my shoulder! My little claim to fame - be still my beating heart etc, lol lol lol
In fact I'm so overcome I have my head on his shoulder. And he's STILL smiling. That man has the patience of a saint, seriously.
Me with Mario - who also has unfailing patience (and remembered me from last week at Birmingham, and said he liked my hair). A thousand blessings upon him. I so admire a man with taste, lol.  (Shame I don't look nicer - I wasn't ready for the shot. And in case you were asking, it's a Mickey Mouse Tshirt.)

Camera envy! O how I love this one!

Another shot of my wonderful new camera: metallic pink, and a rather nice muted raspberry at that. I already posted one pic of it, but I'm so pleased with my new toy that one is not enough! I can actually operate and was able to use the zoom lens (which is more than I can say for that last disaster).

1st shot of my Configuration Box - this is the one I started at the Tim Holtz gig last week, but didn't have time to completely finish
Closeup detail (yes, I actually managed to operate a zoom lens)
A 2nd zoom closeup shot, just to prove it wasn't a fluke
And a 3rd closeup (yes, now I'm just showing off)
And my box in all its glory again (different shot, just to prove I COULD, lol)

I finished my Configuration Box today, and these were the very first pictures I took with the new camera - lovely and sharp, no wobble. I amazed myself!


  1. Oh Susie, I can tell you had a wonderful time at your class. I love what you made, lots of interesting things going on in the fab box. I could sit and look at it for a long time and see something new.
    I will have to look into a camera like yours, it looks like it would be so easy to carry around.
    Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  2. FANTASTIC configuration box, you clever girl you! Love all the photos, esp those of Tim. I can photoshop you out and put me in. Almost as good as being there myself!

    Thanks for your Vagabond advice - I managed to track one down at my local crafting shop (The Craft Barn in Lingfield) at £149, which was the cheapest I could find as well.

    Pink and Canon! Who would have ever thought they'd go together. Sweet camera! Happy PS!

    Yaay, you got one! Isn't it brilliant - such a time saver, and wear & tear on the joints too (all that hand cranking cannot be good) as well as being a spiffy piece of kit.

    I've even repurposed the box - perfect for 12 x 12 papers (I've outgrown my storage again) so this is currently sitting on top of the wardrobe. That handle is a great help. I'm so glad you got it at such a good price - I've seen it going for £175!

    In a post (2 posts down I think) where it shows the canvases, the 'skirt' of the dress model is the bird cage die,with a section cut out on either side. Fiendishly clever, no?

    And thanks so much for the compliment on the box. I had a whale of a time doing it. Yes, go ahead and photoshop yourself into the photos - but you'll still have my feet, lol lol lol

    HOW COOL! I have a bit older model of the easy to use Canon Powershot digital camera and LOVE IT! It really is ultra easy to use but has plenty of extras if you want to do more than point and click. AND it also has the image stabilization feature that makes up for any shaky hands I may have. I know you're going to LOVE yours for years as well. :) Happy Pink Saturday!

  7. Susie, your post made me smile. He is a cute fellow isn't he? You look like you were having a blast. Your project is really cool. That must have taken some serious thought and planning! It is really special. I love the little bird cage. Have a great weekend.

    I love the box with all the goodies! It is deMengish as well as Holtzish. And glad that the camera is easy to use! (love my little Canon, though it is not pink...)
    A fun time was had by all, yes??? ;-)


  15. Oh my gosh! Your configuration box is awesome! I love it! And I'm jealous that you actually got to meet Tim Holz - how cool is that! And your right - Mario has excellent taste! : ) I just got a new camera too - Ruby Red - my hubby gave to me for Valentine's Day. Just used it for the first time last night. Happy Pink Sat.

    Sounds like a fun class. Love the shadow box.

  17. Fun With This and That5 March 2011 at 20:45

    Wow What fun that would be to take a claass like you did.The box is so fun and nice. Laura

  18. Your configuration box is creative. I know you are pleased with it. Love the pink Canon, too. I have owned Canons for years and years but never a pink one. My son had one, but sadly it bit the dust. I love ponk sewing machines and pink cameras. HPS.

  19. Wow, I love the box! I also love the pink camera...I have one too, although not a cannon...i am a new follower...Happy pink Saturday! Pinkim!TrulySimplyPink

  20. What a whirlwind fantastic dream time you've had and with that new hairdo you've come out looking a million dollars! Love it!
