Still Living the Dream!

100_3616(1)

Ok people … Don’t expect much in the way of witty repartee tonight … it has been a very very long day! But in a really good way :0)

My day started with Scrambled eggs for breakfast with Anneliese … oh yeah and THE Wendy Vecchi … again … that’s like two days running and we are getting on sooooo well I am thinking of moving to the U.S so I can be her neighbour and we can have coffee mornings and crafty play dates … I have n’t actually mentioned this to Wendy yet … so if you could keep it to yourself for now … well that would be cool :0) 100_3622(1)

At 9am it is straight out the hotel door and straight into the inky paradise that is Ranger U. I did n’t get chance to introduce you to Heidi yesterday … Heidi one of the nicest and funniest people ever! She was so kind about 100_3621(1)my 10 sleeps tags and even feigned real drool when looking at them … I sure got lucky with my table buddies! See I have even started to talk American … I am soooo gonna fit in here :0)

This morning was all Claudine and her Ranger product line … boy is that lady fun and such a great teacher … her knowledge is amazing and I discovered Sticky Backed Canvas comes in 12 X 12 … that is like … just the best news ever … even though every100_3618(1)body in the entire class knew this apart from me!!!!

This afternoon was all about Distress … with Lord Tim of Holtz … you know Tim … the  man that can make dreams come true while rescuing fluffy kittens from certain death with just a manilla tag  and a pokey tool! Talking of which … did you know that the  different notches on the side of Tim’s pokey to100_3619(1)ol gives different sized hole … depending on what you want the hole for??? … I did n’t … and yes … I have spent most of the day up the corner with a big ‘D’ on my hat!

This evening the wonderful Celine transported us all to the mall for shopping and Strawberry Margaritas in Chillis … and I have to show you this other picture of Heidi … that girl sure can make art with Gesso!!!

Ok … well it is nearly midnight here and I really need to turn in … I hope you all have a fab Sunday … I will be back with another update tomorrow … rumour has it we are making 30 tags!!! Cool!!!

you could just make your own oompa loompa outfit so you'll fit right in at Ranger and maybe they won't notice you haven't actually left at all.

Dallying Debz said...

Sounds like a dream come true so much so that I can't even come up with any witty comments about stalking (although slightly concerned for poor Wendy - at least Tim is safe for the rest of us!!)
