WOW - this time last week I was on the my 2nd flight for the day - going from Adelaide to Port Lincoln - to get picked up at the airport by 2 people I'd never met!!LOL. I had absolutely nothing to be nervous about though (turns out they aren't axe murderers). Amanda and Meredith made me feel completely at home from the very start. They were exactly as I thought they'd be - so it felt like I'd known them for years. (which I guess in a way I have.)
Had a beautiful dinner out with them both, Sue, Michelle Dyson and her (very helpful) husband Andrew.
The venue these girls have chosen is just perfect - a nice roomy shed with great facilities attached and the hostel bunk beds were SO comfy I slept like a log every night - even better than I do at home. And having 5 shops available to purchase from was just downright dangerous! Thank god I had to keep in mind my bag weight for the flight home. Oh - and the way the shed was decorated was SO gorgeous!
[I would upload some photos but very clever me left my camera in Amanda's car so the poor girl has to post it back to me - whoops!!]
I went to bed at a very reasonable hour of about 1 - 1.30am on Friday night (sat morn) thinking I would 'save' myself for Sat night - but turns out Friday was the big night and everyone was buggered by Sat night!LOL. At least I wasn't tired for my class I was teaching on Saturday morning.
I think the class went ok - a daunting prospect teaching a lot of talented scrappers something they don't already know how to do!lol. Michelle and Lou also did a workshop each, which were wonderful and Tatum taught a great double LO class.
I've realised this is quite hard to right in 'order' so I'm just going to randonly thrown things in.
I got to FINALLY meet Lou Nelson!! We've known each other over the internet for YEARS - can't even remember how long, but a very long time and this was the first time we'd met in person which was wondeful! And she was exactly as I thought she'd be. Absolutely gorgeous - and highly talented!
It was wonderful to meet a few other familiar names - Kathryn, Val, Kerryn, Nic, Toni, Tess, Karen, Lauren, Ali, Jane, Brigette - my gosh the list goes on and on so I won't bore you.
Thanks to my table buddies for keeping me inspired - Sue, Tanya, Kathryn, Meredith & Amanda - I think I managed 10 or maybe even 11 Lo's for the weekend which is an absolute record for a procrastinator like me.
Anyhoo - will stop waffling on - no doubt I will add bits to other blog posts as I remember them.
Here's one of my Lo's from the weekend - Kadji Lake - a salt lake near our town which is not full very often, so we made the most of it while the water level is still up.
