My Dream Came True!!

This few days had been kind of sweet and sour for me. The sour or rather bitter part is that I've been under food poisoning and had not been able to eat much and got a little dehydrated. I'm feeling much better now after taking some medications from the DR.

And now, comes the very sweet part which is also my dream came true!! I bet most of you know Tim Holtz!! I love all his work and his products! I think you all would agree with me on this as most of my projects would consist of at least one product from his line!...lol! He is so talented! And here's the spill!...

I've been offered by Tim Holtz to design for him!! Isn't that cool!! and of course I say "YES"! I would never imagine that this would happened. But it did! Thanks Tim for this cool opportunity!! Together you and my fellow blog readers had made this dream came true for me!! Thank you!
