Totally amazing!

I love Mr. Roboto! I would never have thought outside the box like this :)



Mamavamp Angie

I'm loving MR ROBOTO. Your intro blog sounds a lot like me. I would use my dad's old TV parts & TV tubes ('member those?) He was a TV repair man & I had a blast tinkering with the spare parts. Happy to be following your blog! I look forward to more fun stuff... ART!!! ~Angie

Kelly Heggem

The process of creativity never ceases to amaze or inspire me! Thanks for sharing :)


Jim... This is just too cool!!! Wow...


Such amazing work!!! Just love it!

Liz Thogersen



Way Cool...Welcome to the world of Blogs and sharing your work!

Rani Macias

Wow. And again, Wow. Thank you for sharing your wonderful art. Enjoyed reading your blog, too. I don't have much time to read blogs; intrigued by Tim Holtz's mention of your art in his blog, I'm glad I took the time to stop and peruse. Keep up the great work/play. :)

Lara Carson

this is just amazing! So creative!


So glad you found the blog world so you can share your creativity with the rest of us. Nice job on the robot, I love that his head opens to include an album! Fantastic, and share more, please.....

Jean D

Glad you decided to blog, and share your ideology man. I love the way you used all of the goodies, and esp. like the mini-album tucked into the head. It's an inspiration to those of us with a similar stash just waiting to evolve into a new creation.

I suppose when Tim Holtz says you need a blog, you need a blog! Congrats on getting such mad props!

Annette Green

Consider yourself bookmarked! This is an amazing project and I can tell that I will enjoy the reading material you will provide in the future. Welcome to the Blogosphere. I bow in your general direction.


Thanks for sharing Jim! Totally amazing!

Hels Sheridan

Hey Jim, I just hopped here from Tim's blog... how cool is Roboto... what a fab idea!!! Love your introduction, sounds like you and your Mum have a really special relationship.. nice to "see" you in Blogland... and hope to see more of your creations soon!


Jim - Tim is right - this is fabulous and original - love the creative use of Tim stuff! And now you have a link from Tim's site - that kinda makes you famous!!!

Yelowflower Mo

that is just awesome! good job

Janny F

What an awesome and creative project! Thanks for sharing, got to love the Tim Holtz !


So nice to meet you. Like your mom, everything my son has ever given me I still have. One of these days I'll create something with the six (yes six) large boxes of rocks I have that he thought were special enough to give to me. I can't wait to see what you create next.


Great start! Just keep up posts and projects like this, and you'll have quite a following. Seriously, we all like to see what others are doing. The more creative, the better!


Wow! Your creation is awesome! Thanks for sharing!

Danee Kaplan

First off- congrats…blogging is amazing. That first post is always the hardest because you don't' really know if anybody is going to read it. Sending a letter to the blogosphere addressed to no one is daunting. Second- lucky you. I've been building my blog for over a year and probably have never had the hits you will get today. Love the project, a little Tim and a little steampunk all wrapped up by you. I can't wait to see more…. and keep creating. You can open an Etsy shop and save your mom the space.


wow, at least your mum keeps your creations, my mum keeps them till I visit then hands them back to me, bless a mother's love x

Barbara T

Just saying Hello. Came to your blog via Tim. I will be back!

Dianne Blencoe

Tim sent me!!! That is so amazing!!

Diana Ramsey

So why do men think that crafting is only for women??? Your robot is lovely- if one can think of a robot of being lovely! WOuld love to see more of your work.

Mary B

So cool!!

Marjie Kemper

So creative! Love Mr Roboto. Congrats on your exposure on Tim's blog, and happy crafting!


Ants on your toes say you are loved for what you are... literally!
You know now that you've received the attention of Tim Holtz and that he blogged about you that you have been launched!
Best of luck in your art endeavors

Kelly Sands-Clark

Totally Awesome! As much as I love it, I also love your introductory post. Looking forward to seeing your other creations. Congrats on a great start with your blog.

Maureen Mathis

Can't wait to see more!

WOW!!! I am so excited for you. As I have said before...You did great on the robot. I am more excited that you made it to Tim's blog!!! I'm proud of you and so happy to be your friend!!! So glad I met you at Laura & Kathy's. Keep up the good work!!! Maybe you'll be the next Timmy. YAY!!!

Theresa Grdina

Wow! Tim Holtz sent me!! This is pretty amazing! I have subscribed to your blog in my Google Reader! Can't wait to see more of your creations!! no pressure. LOL!!!

Cindy Lietz, Polymer Clay Tutor

Welcome to the crafty blogosphere Jim! I too have had my 'hand in the craft bucket' since a kid and can totally relate to lavishing your Mother with your handy goodness. Luckily for my Mom (I think) I now make mostly jewelry, so the gifts are not as difficult to store. Maybe you could turn to miniature robots for your Mom? Enjoy this new creative expression. You'll be surprised how addicting blogging will be!


What a great imagination you have I absolutely love this!


thanks for the taking the plunge and sharing with us :)

Peggy Beck

I love your creation and am adding you to my favorite places list. I too have made things forever and completely relate to your story of making things for "Mom". Thanks for sharing and am looking forward to more.......

Barbara SP

Tamara Pendleton

Oh my, I will be sharing your piece of artwork with my primary school class tomorrow. We also have been exploring art in robots. Famous in sunny Queensland, Australia.


Amazing robot! You're very talented and a GREAT writer too! You've touched on two of my favorite things to do... create and write. I too am a Tim Holtz super-fan and have had my hand in the creative world since childhood. Your Mom sounds like a very special person. If you need somebody to share those creative whims with, feel free to send them my way! wink-wink. Thank you so much for sharing.


You know you have something when Tim Holtz post's about you on his blog and he wasn't wrong! G;lad to see you have joined the blog world and CAN'T wait to see what you post to share!!



Great blog and I LOVE the robot. In fact, I forwarded it to my y yr old grandson who thinks HE will be the next Tim Holtz. I guess he has to stand in line or possibly you will also go onto his hero list.

Robin Swederske

I'm so glad I stumbled across your blog thanks to Tim Holtz! Keep up the great work!


Cool project, Jim...and you do have a way with words...smoothe reading. Glad you decided to open a blog...looking forward to your future posts and creations. Have fun :)


Fantastic robot! Bet that took at while but was a lot of fun to make. Nice to be able to put a face to your name when I run across you on UStream classes. Don't stop making for your mom, mine did and I miss it.

Ashley Brown

Welcome to the world of Blogging, Jim! Mr. Roboto is just amazing and the story of your Mom and your homemade goodies really touched my heart. Looking forward to seeing more of your creations!!
Congratulations on being mentioned by Tim!


Fantastic robot! all the pieces you combined! I am a recycler and hope you consider using some of Tim's package elements. That hard plastic stuff is fun to dye cut, emboss and color with alchol ink. I can see secret windows into the inners of a guy like this!...just a thought!
Happy creating!...Jan
