Oh well, firmly back to reality now. First day back at work, the joys of traveling on the London underground. At least I have next years Tim Holtz Cruise to look forward to - and my projects and photos provide great memories too. I can fully recommend Tim's cruises organised by Scrapmap, everything is taken care of, Tim is an amazing teacher and his gang of helpers take care of all the workshop needs. A fully stocked studio was available for us to work in at any time and it was so fantastic to meet so many creative people from all around the world who share your passion(obsession).
This was my first ever visit to the USA and my first Tim Cruise. Met my roomie Carolyn on the flight over to Newark which was a good start. Once we arrived at our hotel in New York we decided to wander around until our room was ready.
Our hotel was in the garment district and the fabric and trimming shops were just amazing. We had a look around Grand Central Station - what amazing place! Tried to make it to Empire States Building but we had to make our way back to the hotel to freshen up for our trip to the Tinsel Trading Co. and dinner at Tony Di Napoli's.
