How lucky was I?!

As those of you who read my blog regularly may know, I have good friends in California who live very close to the location of the regular Carson stamp shows, where Tim Holtz's new stamp collections often first go on sale. I have been to the show a number of times myself, but if I can't make it my friends VERY kindly go and pick up any new stamps that I want (I did say they were GOOD friends, right?).

When Tim's most recent collections were launched a few weeks back, that's what happened - I picked out the sets I wanted and a friend went to the show on the Saturday morning to pick them up for me. It turns out that one of the sets was Tim's 100th Collection for Stampers Anonymous, and to celebrate, he signed (in gold) the first 100 sets to be sold. Imagine how surprised I was when I got my package from the US and opened it up to find that I GOT ONE OF THOSE SETS!! A certain chum of mine has already suggested that I should give them to her (I'm not saying who, but she's been newly added to Tim's blog roll!). Sorry to say, that ain't gonna happen! :)

Congratulations, and I felt lucky when I some time ago got a comment on my blog from Tim himself. XD Feels like a very small thing compared to this. :P
