To Paradise and back via Birmingham

I can't believe the last time I posted I was knee deep in pumpkin - November has been a whirlwind month. The NEC hobby crafts show was busy - hello to all you lovely crafters I met while working on the Clarity stand. Barbara is back on screen this Sunday I believe.
Today there will be ladies all over the country recovering from the Graphicus Paradise Weekend Retreat... stitching, inking, stamping, talking, laughing, learning, painting, cutting, punching, and CRAFTING. You will notice there was no mention of sleeping. It was lovely to meet you all and a special thank you to my table of 'professionals' who were absolutly delightful to work with - here's to the next one.

A big thank you Annette for helping us out when we needed it and making sure we were all OK.

You (and all the other members of the Graphicus team) were absolute stars!!!!

The Retreat was a fantastic experience due to the hard work of all the Graphicus team. But so much thanks must go to yourself, Lesley and Kath for your inexhaustible support , encouragement and enthusiasm (and not forgetting David's water pot replenishing and brush washing!!).
You were right about the contents of the "Golden box" - Lou has been ooohing and aaahing over it and has plans for trying the jars out! and I think the pot of glass bead paste will be disappearing! Is there any chance of a piccie of the canvas that you bought in please as my descriptive powers can't do it justice and Lou would like to see it!
I've sent you an e-mail via Lesley as I had another senile moment and couldn't find my link to your blog earlier on!!
Many thanks again Annette -
I do hope I get the chance to come up on one of your workshops
Best wishes from Caz
(one of your "professionals!)
