Well, I had the privilege to be a part of the first and only design team for Tim Holtz!
With Tim’s hectic schedule and travels, I don’t know how he gets anything done, so adding a design team and what goes along with that became too much and he felt it was only fair to us to discontinue it!

I just wanted to thank all his friends and fans who visited our website to see the projects I posted for Tim. It was such an honor and privilege to be asked, let alone be named among all the other amazing artists. I completely felt out of their league, but I so enjoyed the challenge!
Since starting my business, I haven’t had the time to be creative. My goal this year was to get back to being the creative person I’m capable of being. I claimed the BIG room in my house as “mine” and created a work area I LOVE being in! Next, when my friend Diane, (Graphic 45) asked me to help her with her steampunk line, I was sooooo nervous because she is AMAZING! I did their hats, the dress form, and some projects for her booth. It was the first time anyone in the business saw me as a “creative type” instead of just an “organizing type”. Two weeks later, I got an e-mail from Tim asking me to be on his Design Team! See…setting goals really help make things happen!
Thank you Tim for this amazing opportunity to push myself, re-create my crazy life, and return to what I love and need to do to feel like I’m being true to who I am!
It was an AMAZING ride while it lasted and I appreciate being on the best Design Team you ever had – and the only one!!! :>)
Loved the journey!
