I was out of the office yesterday. For once (rare this summer), I am not away at a show. But when I turned on my computer this morning, many of the messages that I read asked the same question – “Why aren’t the new Tim Holtz Crayons on your site yet?”
Thankfully, I have an absence excuse . . .
I spent the morning and afternoon at Kings Island (massive amusement park just north of Cincinnati) with Ryan and Emily. While there, I learned a very important lesson – I am getting too old for thrill rides. I have always been susceptible to motion sickness, but could avoid it at amusement parks as long as I didn’t eat anything. No more – my head and stomach were not happy. But we still had fun . . .
And the best image of my day came from behind. I got home in time to let my system settle before the evening activities . . .
Announcing the final scrimmage before the high school football season begins next Friday night. Living in a small town, this is the best view of life in the fall – and this is where I will find almost everyone I know. I put this picture on my Facebo0k page last night, and a high school friend from New Zealand (he was an exchange student and played football at our school in 1975) mentioned that he would like to come back to see a game and hear me announce. I told him that I only plan on doing this through the 2049 season – anything over 70 seasons just seems greedy.
But enough about my day – I started catching up on the work stuff this morning . . .
There are new Distress goodies from Tim Holtz on the horizon – and the first shipment should arrive on Monday! Two new sets of Distress Crayons, a Distress Ink Kit, a Distress Crayon Watercolor Kit, and more. There are also new Dylusions Stencils and some other items I’m still finding. So click on this link to see what’s new – and check back in a day or two to see what else I have found . . .
