CC2C Badge

I am totally thrilled to share that I'll be part of the Curiosity Crew the lovely Linda Ledbetter has assembled for her new challenge blog, which will be focused on techniques from Tim Holtz's latest book… the Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 3.  The challenges will start one week from today (Saturday, April 26) and will last for two weeks.  You can find all the info on Linda's CC3C site.


Linda's asked us for fun photos – the quirkier the better – so I pulled out these old optometrist glasses to add to my Curiosity Crew shot.  Wait till you see everyone else!  Linda and I got to know each other via BlogLand when she started hosting these challenges years ago (this is Volume 3, after all!), and we met in person for the first time this past January at the Craft & Hobby Association show. I wish we'd had many more hours/days to talk while there in person… it was like meeting an old friend, and the time flew. Here's a post from 2011 when I was one of her guest designers for her Grungy Monday series.

I am so honored to be part of this team (Linda has links to all the team members on her blog today) and I am really looking forward to playing along twice a month with these Tim-themed challenges.  Hope you will join us!

If we're not already connected, please sign up for my newsletter or follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, or Twitter.

Thanks so much for the visit!

    I love your photo, you look fab-u-lous! I’m sure everyone will have a wonderful time taking part in the CC3 challenge. After my spending at the craft show in London last week, I have to save up to buy my copy of Tim’s book.
