g’day australia…

well bloggers our 3 week journey has come to an end as we finished our final stop in melbourne.  when we landed for our final stop in melbourne my first priority was to see this wonderful city and visit as many shops as we could.  of course we wouldn’t let the rain stop our mission for vintage treasures as we made our way through alleyways, arcades, and shop after shop.  i found a few cool things i couldn’t live without including a vintage suitcase to conveniently carry them all in as we made our way around the city.  then of course there was the food – one word…delicious!  everything from baked treats, pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, gelato, chocolates, you name it we ate it.  we experienced the sights of the city, walked along the waterfront, and even took the opportunity to have a few drinks in an ice bar!

so as we make our final flight back to the USA, i want to again thank everyone in oz for their genuine kindness in truly sharing the journey.  what an amazing adventure this has been in australia!  thanks once again to all of the 650 students i had the opportunity to meet, teach, and share some creative time with, to all of the show attendees for sharing the excitement of 40 hours of demos, to karen, peter, and the kaszazz team for their hospitality, and of course to mario, alain, chad, di, nicole, and the team at stamp-it for taking care of us here in australia and making this trip possible.  looking forward to returning to this land down under…t!m

    You were a very welcome visitor; I experienced your friendly sharing of knowledge and skills even during the tiring demos. People are still talking about happenings and ideas from your workshops. Mario’s input into the classes and demos was noted.
    Still many Australian experiences, places and people to share your days. Please return; visit some of the country areas for a very different perspective. Again I offer my tour guide skills.

  10. Joanne Hughes says:

    So glad you enjoyed your trip downunder Tim, we certainly loved having you here and can’t wait for your return, your class was so much fun!

  11. So glad you enjoyed your Aussie trip, Tim. As an Aussie, I was very disappointed not to get into any of your classes. They sold out in record time!
    Hopefully you’ll come visit us again, and maybe have more classes next time.

  12. Looks like you all had a deliciously fun time! Ice Bar? Incredible!

    You have the best job on the planet! How amazing is it to spend 3 weeks in Aussie?! LUCKY!! I could only sit and dream to go for 1 day, much less that long. I think its funny that we are sitting in 100 degree temps (gotta love GA summers) and its freezing over there. Crazy! Have a safe trip home! 🙂

    Thank you so much for teaching us so many great techniques. you are an amazing and very patient teacher. We are all still smiling here in OZ and feel very lucky to have been drawn to attend the workshops. I managed to get one of your beautiful cases for my inks and some of your other products so i can keep creating with what i learnt, along with one of your beautiful books. I hope you are coming back again so we can learn more.

    Thank you Tim for such an amazing experience. The workshop is in my top 5 list of best experiences so thank you to you, your team and the Kaszazz team for everything. I was privileged enough to attend your final workshop with Kaszazz in Melbourne. I had the time of my life. I learnt so many new techniques. You have certainly inspired me and I can’t wait to share what I have learnt with others. Thank you again to everyone that made your trip downunder possible. Emma

  48. Debbie says:

    Looks like another amazing trip! As you make your way back the mainland, you could always stop here in Hawaii and take few days to bask in the sun! Hint-Hint. I’m sure we could put a few demos together and keep you busy, if that would better suit you! In any case, safe travels.
