Ok..NZ post overload but I want to get all of these photos and memories down before too much time goes past and then I forget details...
We were up early and ready to go with the workshops on Saturday morning. Nic and I taught two workshops each and all classes ran for 2hours. I didn't have to start until 11am so we had time for a leisurely breakfast in the restaurant.
And then off I headed for my first class. Now this was my Fast, Furious and Fabulous class which was causing me some stress as I had decided that perhaps I was a tad too ambitious with the projects and the expectation that we could achieve creating THREE layouts in only two hours.
Here's the classroom after Nic had finished teaching and just before my class started...
It was a great classroom space actually and we even had another row of tables at the front of the room that you can't see in this shot. Lots of space.
And then everyone started arriving...
And we were off and racing..
Everyone worked SO hard and kept up.
And here's the only photo of me teaching...well this one and a hideous photo Nic took of me with my eyes closed and a stupid look on my face..
I had such lovely students in both classes. And they kept up and almost everyone completed all three layouts. I was shocked but also thrilled because I had been so worried that we wouldn't get finished.
I then had a break of several hours before my next workshop. It ran from 4.30-6.30pm. It was a more relaxed class and not as fast paced which was perfect because I think there were some very tired ladies after a full on day! And I was feeling weary too!!!
Nic taught her second class after lunch and before me . I must make special mention of it as I loved the idea and I thought it was a truly excellently designed class concept.
Nic's class was called her Card Buffet class which she has taught at other retreats and conventions with great success. She set out a magnificent buffet of product!!! It looked excellent all lined up on the table at the front of the classroom.
She had jewels, buttons, flowers and ribbons.
And she guided the girls through the process of creating five different cards using a class kit and then she let the girls loose to create as many cards as they wanted to. The record was 15 cards made!!!!
After the classes wrapped up it was off to the scraproom for more festivities and frivolity and a 2am finish!!
