Fabulous Idea-ology!

Good Evening Everybody!

Overwhelmed and totally amazed!  That's how I'm feeling tonight!  I cannot begin to tell you what a totally amazing day it has been!  I have never hugged so many people in my life and I LOVE IT!  Yahooo!  Thank you for coming up and saying hello!  That is truly the coolest thing ever!  Enough said!  Oh well, forgot to segue over to overwhelmed...I have so much to say...As always, but being totally bush whacked and my worse than country connection to the Internet will make this post short!

For some reason the mornings seem to be better with the connect in the hotel than the nights so I will try to catch you all up then.

I did want to share the video below.   Thanks Tons Barb for bringing it to my attention!  Tim was interviewed by Noell Hyman and Tim shows a couple of my projects!  I'm so proud to be mentioned!  How cool is that!  So not trying to sound pompous here....Just proud.

So here's the video...again thanks Barb!



Well, off to get some much needed rest....Thank you all so much for following along!  You guys ROCK!

  14. Wonderful Jim - I have been waiting and waiting to see your projects - brilliant!! Well done you!

  15. I'm so proud of you!! As proud as your Mama! You do magnificent work...but then of course you ARE a CREATIVE PROFESSIONAL...it says so on your badge! I'm happy that you got to see the video...it really showcases some of your work.

    The internet...think it might be bad at night because everyone is blogging and uploading their pictures and stuff from their day at CHA. Mornings are better because they are still waking up. How's that for a hypothesis?

    Can't wait to see what Day 2 brings.

  19. Yes Jim, you were the star but not only in this video, but others that Nowell did with Tim. I was just beaming with pride when he took time to show off your Eiffel tower made of suitcases as well as your clock. Incrediable pieces. Hope you took pictures of all of them and will share them with us as well. You rock Jimbug!!!!!!!

  20. Oh my word Jim! I ADORE your Eiffel Tower! I can't wait to hear how you made it. My room is done in a Paris theme, and maybe I can make a "mini" or something. Your work is just amazing and you deserve all the hugs and support. Your clock was awesome and that you put a mini in the back and made it work is amazing. Enjoy each moment of this event and thanks for sharing it with us.

  28. Grandma's Good Gravy, Jim.... the Eiffel Tower made out of little suitcases is the cutest thing I've every seen.

    It was fantastic. Are you an engineer in your other life??? I wish I lived next door to you. So far... you win the prize for the coolest sample of all

  29. OMG YOU Eiffel Tower is AWESOME..! The time you took to craft all those little boxes into suitcases is truly a labor of love. I wish I could be there to see all of your creations in person. Thanx so much for all of the inspiration and Congrats you truly deserve it!

  30. Absolutely beautiful! Love the clock and how you turned it into a real clock. Love the gears. Now the tower is fantastic and I so want to make it. You are a great addition to the Ranger Team. Have a great time and I can't wait to see you with Dy.

  31. I found this video last night before you posted it and I too was beaming with pride when Tim showed your wonderful Eiffel tower and super clock! I adore all those little suitcases made from configurations boxes and I think it's amazing that you hid a mini inside the clock and made it work as well. You sir are a genius! Enjoy the rest of the show and please let us know about it when you can.

  32. The way you made the outside of the clock is so cool. I really like that it's a real clock! It goes without saying that the Eiffel Tower is incredible. I could tell that Tim was amazed himself. :)Did you play with Legos as a little guy? I'm always so surprised by what unique ideas you have. Well, go forth and hug today. Can't get too much of that.

  34. I wish I were there to get one of those hugs! I posted to your facebook when I saw your amazing Eifel Tower, I REALLY REALLY think you should do a U-stream for us on it, just sayin... in your spare time. HA! The clock, fabulous, love the mini inside too.
    You'll have to catch us up on who all those lovely people were in the pictures when you get home.
    Enjoy the rest of your experience at CHA, thanks again for taking us along.
