The super heavy suitcase sailed through check-in no probs and no excess baggage to pay but before the fun can begin....the set up team have to get to work....in this case MOI.....unpacking tables...chairs and tools
decorating the stand to make it into my little home from home for 4 days
and after what happened to my samples at the SECC....these boys were super glued to the wall
Back at the hotel by 6pm....didn't even have the energy to take myself down to the restaurant so it was room service...jammies on...into bed and asleep by 9.30pm. And after 7 (50) minute workshops each day with only a short break to grab a drink...something to eat and a dash to the loo....I arrived back home last night slightly cream crackered but with wonderful memories of the 280 lovely crafters who joined in the Fiskars Fun.....including 3 gentlemen....sending big hugs to you all.
But it's not all work....had lots of fun catching up with crafty friends....sending big hugs to Jill at Hobby House...Leandra at Paperartsy....David at Samuel Taylor and Keith at Fantastic Ribbons. Big thank yous to Penny and the team at Art of Craft and of course the Fiskars Dream Team...the lovely Severine (the boss) my hooligan demonstrator chums...the lovely Hina and Rach who tried at every opportunity to lead me astray and even managed to get me tipsy on one occasion......loves you all.
But the icing on the cake was meeting up with some very special crafty buddies and the very special fella who came to a workshop but will tell you all about that tomorrow....have some magazine commissions for Fiskars to get done before Wednesday so it's back to the cubbyhole and get the crafty hat on.....and oh yes I did manage to buy one or two crafty things so look out for a little give-away coming your way soon.
