New Idea-ology

While shopping at JoAnn for stuff for my August promotions I noticed Tim Holtz has some new Idea-ology products out on the market:

Starting clockwise from the pack with keys in the upper right corner, here's what they are:

Collage Keys -- four skeleton keys with blank recesses that you customize with ten included picture and epoxy stickers. These would be fun to design with your own images, too. ($9.99)

Compass Coins -- four metal disks in two sizes stamped with compass designs; great as game spinners, journal cover embellishments or whatever you want to make into a compass.  I'm going to try one of the larger coins in Tim's fillable pocket watch case, which you can see to the left of the coins. ($4.99 for the compass pack, and $7.99 for the pocket watch case.)

Custom Fasteners -- 24 large and small pronged, blank-faced fasteners that you customize with 43 included picture and epozy stickers; like the collage keys you could design these with your own images.  ($5.99)

Wishbones -- a fanciful little corked glass vial that contains 15 faux wishbones. As you can see in the close-up pic to the right here, you can remove the cork and the wishbones. I think they'd be great for assemblage art or just a spirit-boost gift for yourself or a friend.  Besides, who doesn't need a few more wishes?  ($5.99)

    1. I love Tim Holtz's prodicts, Trisha, and I'm determined to figure out something fun to do with these wishbones. Maybe use them for some Thanksgiving-themed BookLoops, lol.

  2. I love his stuff, but since the JoAnn close to me closed its doors, the only other one that doesn't take me hours to drive to doesn't really carry much in his line. :(

    1. If you go to his official site, Theo, he has his products link-connected to an online store. I'm using that to order some of the things my JoAnn doesn't carry.
