A month ago today I embarked on an amazing adventure. I won something.
There are giveaways on nearly every blog out there and of course I've never won anything... UNTIL NOW!
And, not even just that I won, I won TIM HOLTZ product on TIM HOLTZ'S BLOG. AMONG 3200 OTHER COMMENTERS.
THAT IS A LOT OF CAPITAL LETTERS.
I was so excited when I read Tim's post on the winners that I interrupted Adam when he was talking to me, started screaming and jumped out of my chair.
What can I say, I get excited easily!
I won the seasonal distress ink pads that he announced here.
My comment that won:
Brilliant! You weren't kidding - this is an awesome announcement! I'll be using these on more than just seasonal projects... ;)Adam asked me if they chose the winners randomly or not. I don't know, but I like to think that Tim himself read my comment and was like "this Tessa needs to win. She sounds like the coolest person ever."
The response:Tim, you are my idol. I'm not even joking - I rave about you and your products to my husband all the time and he makes fun of me for it :)I'm the one that posted a comment to win those AWESOME season distress ink pads and YOU PICKED ME!
Mario is Tim Holtz's assistant.Hey there Tessa,You are very welcome!!!Congrats on your winning post.I am working on getting your prize right out.Hope you keep on enjoying Tim’s blog…….Thanks, Mario
On September 22nd I got a package in the mail...
Adam hadn't come home from work yet, so Coco enjoyed opening the package with me.
Ok, so not only did I win THREE ink pads of AWESOME colors that are LIMITED EDITION, but Tim Holtz SIGNED it, and I got free BINGO thingys from his line! And a little postcard that has a little biography.
I love the inks. The brown is nice - a very deep, rich brown. The orange is awesome since I don't have anything like it at all, and the purple is a DEEP, beautiful purple that I like so, so much better than Dusty Concord.
I'm so lucky.
