A BIG Surprise Today!

Anyone who is a serious stamper, and is invested in this craft, and follows new stuff  knows who Tim Holtz is.  His blog is one I faithfully follow and read.  In January Tim posted about a visit to a wonderful antique shop called Sweet Salvage in Phoenix, Arizona. It is only opened one weekend a month! Since I had already planned a trip to Arizona  I googled the name for more information.  I discovered that the one weekend a month they are open to the public was during the time I would be in Mesa!  So I asked my friends if they would be interested in going shopping with me there --and they were.  I mainly wanted to see what there was available.

I saw some very neat things but not enough room in  my suitcase!






Aren't those neat looking things!

And then I glanced up and who did I see? Tim Holtz and Mario!

Both he and Mario were very gracious!  Mario took the picture.  I found out they were on their way to London, but their flight was delayed so they decided at the spur of the moment to stop by Sweet Salvage!  It was a special moment for me!

I told him about Technique Junkie Stamps and he said he would check them out and wrote down the name!

Have you had a cool surprise? Get inky!
