the lovely Julie Hickey
and my Sizzix hero and workshop next door neighbour...the lovely Pete Hughesand the folks who managed to dodge the camera...the gorgeous Hels Sheridan...Marion Emberson and the crew from WOW...my fiskars Buddy Lynne...Kim Costello...Chris and the lovely gals at Practical Publishing and Jenny and the gang at Pebeo. It's great to know you're not alone when it comes to the aches and pains...we're all in the same boat and the topic of conversation first thing every morning was which part of our anatomy was hurting the most. Big thanks to all my lovely blogging buddies who popped by to say hello and it was fabulous to meet up with my fellow Tim Holtz stalker Jenny again and to finally meet the lovely Julie Brooks and Neil Burley and a big thank you to Lynne and Jenny for the beautiful birthday cards.
Of course a trip to Birmingham wouldn't be complete without our twice a year carvery treat with our lovely buddy Rach and a meet-up with my bestest crafting buddy...my adorable friend Enfys who joined Hina and I for my birthday dinner...great company...fabulous fun and delicious food...
so delicious in fact that Hina and I returned for second helpings on Saturday night.
And last but not least...a huge thank you to the 240 lovely folks who joined me for the Fiskars workshops...we had great fun...they were superstar crafters each and every one...
and without them...I would have been twiddling my thumbs and talking to myself for 4 days. An extra special huge thank you to Beverley from Trimcraft and the amazing girls from Colemans Craft Warehouse for all their help and support.
Can you believe that I haven't got round to unpacking the crafty purchases yet and can't for the life of me remember what goodies persuaded me to raid the stash purse this time round so when I share them tomorrow...it's probably going to be as big a surprise to me as it is to you.
