Who is that cutie pie?
Her name is Tori and if you have a sec, I'd like to share a sweet story with you.
Tori's mom is Tiffany. Tiffany is our customer service Director at Simon Says Stamp. We love Tiff, and Tiff shares in our passions for all things paper art. In fact, at home Thursday night, Tiff was watching some of the Tim Holtz' "how to" demo videos with little Tori. ( The vids are really awesome - Tim is charismatic, easy to follow and has really fun and cool techniques.) Inspiring! So inspiring that Tori fell in love and NEEDED to do these things too! The videos made things come to life for little Tori and she is HOOKED! Tiffany came into work Friday and told me Tori totally wants to do some Tim Holtz projects at her 9th birthday party coming up. AWESOME! I was so excited to hear another artist coming out of her shell! She wanted to start with the alcohol ink /splatter spray can technique from the demo below.
We loaded Tiff up with supplies for Tori JUST YESTERDAY.
Tiffany texted me this morning to see if she could stop by the office. I was on my way... perfect. She had Tori with her and Tori wanted to show what she made with the Tim Holtz goodies from JUST YESTERDAY! The whole family (even in-laws) were at Tori's house last night practicing and perfecting the Splatter technique. Tiffany said it was a blast. I could tell by the look on shy little Tori's face and her excited little voice that she was bursting with excitement.
Above is a picture of Tori just outside our Simon office showing the beautiful piece of art she made and gave to me. My heart is warmed.
This is what it is all about folks! Not just making art, but sharing and creating. It's food for the soul and what a beautiful thing that Tim Holtz is inspiring our children to make art with us! Thank you Tori! Thank you Tiff! Thank you Tim!
Have a delightful weekend,
