ISC update

It's overdue I know but I only got home yesterday afternoon. What an awesome weekend, where do I start?
We got there Friday late morning and had a briefing and lunch together. It was great to break the ice between the people that hadn't met before. I shared a room with
  • Zina
  • , what can I say, she is just so sweet. Hej Zina, thanks for not jumping into my bed. Zina doesn't like sleeping alone:) Then there were
  • Ngaire
  • and
  • Lisa
  • , so inspirational and with so much more teaching experience. But they just made me feel welcome from the start. There was a great bond and atmosphere between all the tutors. I hope we get to work together again girls! Kerrin did a fantastic job of organizing the event and made sure everything ran just smooth.
    Friday night was the Inspiration Crop sponsored by Sally from Delish Designs, beautiful products. If you haven't seen them before go and have a look at the website. Julia did a great job at runnung the crop and people generally had a good time having a drink and getting to know each other. I met Tamar and Suz from
  • Tarisota Collections.
  • Very friendly girls, loved meeting them. If you don't know about Tarisota Collections now is the time to check it out. They bring out a beautiful kit of coordinated products every month, and did I say the kits are beautiful?? I also caught up with Cheryl from
  • Aussie Scrapsource
  • , loved meeting her again.
    There were also some girls from
  • Blue Bazaar
  • that I hadn't met before, Loretta, Juanita and of course Debbie was there. Loved meeting all of you girls!
    Saturday we had classes all day and then Deborah generously invited the sponsors, tutors, class helpers and Pride staff for dinner. We had a ball.
    Sunday classes again and in the afternoon presentations and thank you's to the sponsors, class helpers and tutors.
    It was an exhausting weeking but so much fun at the same time. The friendships that we take away from these conventions are priceless. I hope I get to do another one some day. Then Sunday afternoon Steve and the kids arrived and we spent the next two days at Seaworld. It was such an adventure for the kids. On Tuesday on our way to Seaworld we ran into Jodie from Scraptacular in Melbourne. Jodie's kids and my kids had made friends the night before in Kids Club. So we ended up spending most of the day together at Seaworld and having dinner together back at the resort. It was great to meet you Jodie and we loved your and your mum's company. I will definitely come visit next time I'm in Melbourne.
    So that is the wrap up. There is so much more to tell but my head is still a bit fuzzy from it all :)
    I will share one of the classes I was teaching. It was the Scrapworks class. Hope to see all of you next time!
