retreat!!!!! going the distance

little felt bucket $3.99!!! I just had to have four!

hand made bunny buddy by Leisa Barwell (owner of Scrapsidaisy)

my bags packed to head to the retreat...five hours of driving!...well worth the trip!

Linelle Bird, me, Kim Solomon...online and now offline friends

me being me...silly...so what!

The last few weeks have been crazy busy...and it's just the way I like it, maybe not so much the crazy part but busy is good. My trip to Perth was great and my 40th birthday was the best birthday I ever remember...apart from one or two little things but bah! what ever!
Classes went well over there and I'll be back in August to work a show and quite possibly a retreat...love retreats!
Speaking of retreats that is where I was this weekend, I packed my scoobymobile and set off on a long drive to teach scrapbookers how to "wing it" and experiment with products.
I made a pit stop to speak to WOW about some new product designs...I am really excited about them...and nope it's not chipboard or even MDF...you will love it!
Anyhoo, I had a lovely visit with Suzanne and got her to "change" one of the current designs I had...I should have asked for her to cut dozens because when I showed it at the retreat...the ladies went crazy!
My final destination was a lovely little Aussie town called Wingham 
I taught two classes over two days and met lots of wonderful ladies who made me feel very welcome.
All of the art that they created in my classes was beautiful and they seemed to have great fun playing with WOW chipboard flowers designed by me and my fave glitzy mica products from Lindy's Stamp Gang
I look forward to getting back there again.

Thank you Leisa, Linelle, Kim, Julie and everybody else for letting me "Wing It in Wingham"

It was an absolute pleasure to have you Linda. I just said to my hubby last night - I really could not have chosen a more talented, approachable, lovable scrapper (woops) I mean MIXED MEDIA ARTIST to teach at our retreat. We all LOVE YOU Linda - come back soon!
