Good Morning My Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!  I guess it's time to pick up the wrapping paper from the floor and think about the New Year and 2017!  Can you believe it?  It honestly seems like yesterday that I was standing in my Georgetown house on December 31, 1999 watching the TV in the kitchen.  We were all wondering whether the computers would change to 2000.  Remember the big shenanigans that date change caused?  Well, it's almost here, not 2000 but..2017.

To clean out the studio and ready myself for the new year, I am having an After Christmas Sale in my shop....


Please come on by for some deals on tutorials and some Graphic 45 Paper Pads!  I've also added some requested kits and a new January Project!  Sale Ends December 31, 2016!

  1. Jim, Would love some type of cabinet with a bunch of drawers. Kind of like the left side of the vintage trunk desk clock. Glad that you had a great Christmas. Looking forward to 2017, hoping the midwest is still part of your travel plans.

  19. Wow! You are amazing Jim. I would love to see some sort of storage unto I could place on my crop table that wouldn't take up a large footprint. I always have tools all over the desk while I'm working on projects. I don't have a huge work surface so space is minimal. Oh... and it has to be Steampunk! Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  20. How about a jeep or similar vehicle featuring G45 Safari Adventure? I love the vehicle that you have thus far created.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Would love more buildings for both the putz village and some bigger to go with the candu shoppe and toy shoppe. I'm thinking a floral shoppe, general store, gas station, diner..... Have a great new year!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Your putz house are amazing so how about a series- The North Pole with Mr and Mrs Claus, a toy workshop, a barn for the reindeer, and a sleigh. I would be ok with just a sleigh.

  23. Jim, this is an answer to my prayers! I have been wanting a heavy duty storage unit! The rest of the ones I had found over the Internet or too flimsy or didn't make sense in terms of storage or at store two little. I am so excited for this giveaway! what I would like to see is a similar project to something you did on your old blog which consisted of a cabinet and on top of the earth and some other elements hung suspended from wire on top. It had so much potential as a gift for him to use along with a wonderful element that wasn't as a gift or to use along with an unusual element that wasn't prohibitive or in the way. So a magic theme with maybe secret compartments etc up with that element on top would be amazing!

  28. Now that I have read the whole post: I would love a storage container for my Coptic books that have pages made from half sheets of letter-size paper (that is, 4.25x5.5 inches). It would have a shelf for the finished ones (the spines are about three-quarters of an inch wide), a drawer for those in progress, and one for needles and thread.

Even monuments from the good ole USA like Statue of Liberty or the White House. So looking forward to what you're creating in 2017, I know it will be fabulous as all your projects are AMAZING! Happy New Year to you and Cesar!
