Holiday ends

Hi everyone.  I'm now home from Melbourne and Canberra, and wow what a terrific time I had.

First 4 days were spent with my two sisters exploring the city, enjoying the footy at Etihad stadium - go Essendon!!! (for you Christine!), eating out at Lygon Street (the most amazing Italian spaghetti dinner), shopping, shopping and more shopping!!

Next, came Stampin'Up! Convention!!!! Oh my goodness, I was blown away by it all.
Stayed in a 30th storey 2 bedroom unit (I am terrified by heights and the whole unit had ceiling to floor windows! - couldn't sleep in the bed closest to the window - felt I may fall out!!!!!)  with my upline Jacqui and her great husband Dennis along with Therese (our Tamworth connection), a 'died in the wool' country and western music fan who was so much fun. Enjoy Nashville darlin'.
Met so many great demonstrators, especially Maggie and her friend Annette - hi girls!

Then, it was onto Canberra for a week of R and R with my big sister. It was so relaxing being with them. I was able to catch up with my nephew Todd and his lovely wife Nicole and their delightful children Amber and Connor - hi kids!!

I hope to catch up with lots of friends at my Stampin'Up! site at the  Beef Week craft fair on Friday and Saturday.

Will hopefully have some photos from Therese to share soon. My camera decided to pack it in 3 days into my holiday.

  1. Didn't we have the BEST time at convention? So blessed to share it with you and the delightful Miss T. The look on your face when we walked near those windows on the 30th floor is indelible in my min Sue. Thanks for being there and being a legend Bent-Inklination.
