I Wish it Could Be ...

Xmasscreen1a

... Christmas every day!

Actually it can be!

Look at my lovely ladies from the Christmas Screen Class last Wednesday in their Cracker hats. We had a great time in Olney ... even in the heat ... without any snow! And I even got a Christmas present from the lovely Jenny.Xmasscreenb

We had technical trouble with the Christmas music ... erm ... technically ... I forgot it :0) Having said that ... all was not lost ... we used CD's to draw around for the shape of the screen and luckily enough one of them had a rather bizarre Christmas selection on it ... better than nothing though and it all added to the Christmas spirit! And if you are wondering what else I have been up to ... well ... drum roll please ...

Jenny I have been planning a trip to Paris!!!

The lovely Celine ... you know Celine ... one of my Ranger U table buddies ... well she has invited me to go and teach at a Scrap retreat just outside Paris in November! The Paper & Co Show.

So Bon and ooh la la ... I shall be brushing up on my French ... actually ... I don't need to ... luckily PandCOshow they provide an interpreter ... or things could have been ... well ... erm ... interesting ... all I can remember from my French O Level days is in fact ... la regler est sur la table and l'oiseau est dans la jardin ... oh and I can place Marie-Claude pretty much anywhere around the house ... but something tells me that is not going to be a whole lot of use!

That is it from me for now ... I am just off to make stuff ... Have a fab Friday everyone ...

Laters!

Your work is really great and congratulations on being asked to teach in Paris. I would love to attend at least one of them and hope I will have the chance to get to the PACS in november... Don't speak french, but guess I don't need to ;-) Big Hug

Joy said...

Ditto to all what Hels said! Erm' except for the masters degree and I can't speak a word of French. You go girl xxx

Allyson said...

Linda, this is going to be really good. I can bask in your reflected glory now that you're going to be really, really famous, because I'll be able to say "I know her, I've been taught by her." Do you think Tim'll be there teaching too. That would really be the cherry on the cake wouldn't it? Some more French vocab for you... Moi aussi - I'm an Australian...okay, I know it means 'Me too', but how about... Moi, je suis une amie de Lord Tim.

Oh! and the class was brilliant too. See you on Thursday. xxx
