Walkin' in a {Tim Holtz induced...} Wonderland!

Bloggy WONDERLAND, that is.... Rancho Durenberger STYLE!

{Hold on to your ear drums - I'm going AUDIO!}






Update:
In case you were unable to access this {oh, HEAVENS! :o)} - the link has been updated! I'm a You TUBE "newbie!" Doh!
Thanks for your patience!

Accccckkkkkk!

If THAT was "TMI" about life at Rancho Durenberger, you may just want to hit the mute button and read the words, for yourself:

Over the house, lies a mantle of laundry
My empty pantry is QUITE a quandary,
But here in the blogland, we’re clickin’
And CRAFTIN’… TOGETHER!...

Bam, bum, ba-bum, bum…


Splarkly fluff, is a-glistnin, shiny wire needs some twistin’
It’s a beautiful sight, Tim’s Tags done up right,
Craftin’ in our Bloggy Wonderland!


In the studio Tim can make some Ta-ags…

He’ll festoon with bits of vintage charm.
Dies and grungeboard crunching though the Vagabond,
And now we have to have one of our own!

Later on, we’ll be a-stalkin’, bleary-eyed

Checkin’ the clock, and, it’s a beautiful sight

When we get it right, waitin’ for Tim’s Tags

to come on line!

In the background is a glimpse of Mario!

He’s a smilin’, swillin’ Starbuck’s, too….
Without him, Tim would be much less AMAZING!
Wish I could have a friend like Mario, too….

Splarkly fluff, is a-glistnin, shiny wire needs some twistin’
It’s a beautiful sight, Tim’s Tags done up right,

Craftin’ in our Bloggy Wonderland!



That's right, friends! We're FLYING though the Twelve Tags of Tim and I am HAVING a good time! So good, in fact.... {aw, shucks - I'm SO flippin' giddy!} I'm going to get a little shameless, once again... I won TIM HOLTZ blog candy today! YEEEEEEEEEE HAAAAWWWWWW! Oh..... myyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy....... goooooooodnessss! I'm so freakin' happy I had to write that lil' ditty, in an effort to channel my excitement and rekindle my "tradition" I started last year with my "Ode To Tim"! Yipeeeeeeeeeeeeee! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to the lovely and talented Mr. Holtz and the ever so funny and delightful, MARIO! You two ARE Christmas!

Meanwhile, hope you can forgive my lack of papercraft - I'm preparing some art for a little, local showing at my FAVORITE coffee haunt.. Here's a mini-preview:





{THAT'S "Auntie Cow! She's Mamacow's B-A-B-Y! All THIRTY SOMETHING years of her!}

Anywhooo, dear ones! I hope I didn't scare you: I do, soooooo, get silly around this time of year! Thanks {!} for visiting! I hope you're having a blast getting your "Tim" on!

And I am SOO excited that you won!!! (Would you believe today was the first time I didn't stay up late or get up even earlier to go look?! *That* is probably why I caught the kidlets' bug.....which is why I didn't see that you won, until now....'cause I would SOO recognize your comment! :>) Have a blast with your Tim goodies!!!!
