Its sooo wonderful to be back home in Blighty.
After spending the last 10 days on the road, teaching for Prima, I'm more than glad to be home with my guys....I missed them all so much and will admit to sharing a few tears when I finally got to give them all a big cuddle late last night.
My trip began on 5th Sept in Amsterdam where I met up with Sharon Laakkonen and Jen Starr at Schiphol airport. After a quick catch up, Jen waved us goodbye as Sharon and I were heading over to Ochten to go teach Prima Make and Takes at Kars Krazy Days event, and Jen was off to play at Scrapbookmate for the weekend.
We arrived at the hotel, dropped off our bags and headed out for a walk around Wageningen - which was such a pretty little town.
Sunday and Monday were spent at the show where I got to meet up with UK retailers as well as some of my scrapping pals, including the lovely Rebbecca from Sassafras.
Tuesday morning saw me waving goodbye to my room mate, Sharon, as well as the rest of the guys whom I had meet over the weekend - Layle, Suzie, Lindsey, Donald, Norla Lee etc - *sniff sniff*- I was left all on my lonesome at the hotel but not for long as Jen arrived shortly afterwards and we were whisked away to Venlo to go teach at Manita's store,"Special Memories".
Jen and I had a fantastic time at the store and enjoyed meeting new faces. We had such a giggle trying on hats which were all creative masterpieces.
From Venlo we headed across the border to Belgium and spent 24 hours in the company of Vicky and her adorable father, Mark, who own Tiny's craft store - it certainly isnt tiny tho and is stacked full to bursting with the most amazing crafting finds.
As Thursday was our day off Vicky and Mark took us on a quick tour around Brugge, which is such a beautiful city. After seeing the sights it was time for lunch - so we sat in the square, eating Belgian Waffles and watched the world go by - bliss.
Jen and I arrived back in The Netherlands around teatime on Thursday and were treated to a wonderful evening barbecue at the home of our next class host.
I'll update more tomorrow....I need to catch up on emails and spend some much needed time with the guys.
Thanks for popping by.
