!!!!!!!!!!!! My flabber is ghasted!!! I am a right giddy kipper today!!! !!! !!! !!! I have been keeping a lid on this exciting news for months now... and today is the day that I am allowed to tell you all about the next step on my journey through Art. Oh yesh indeedily!!!! !!!! !!!!! !!!!!! *a few more exclamations cos I am all of an exclamations today!!!* (and pinching meself... is this really real???) Well, yes it is! So, what is this news? I am very honoured to be able to announce that I will be teaching on a ScrapMap cruise that is sailing from Southampton on May 25th - 31st 2014. Taking in Paris, France, Bilbao & Gijon, Spain, this is the *Ultimate* in crafting cruises. And, I won't be on my own either... because these fabulous gals are also joining me on the cruise; Kaz Hall, Ranger Educator and uber talented Distress officiando. Mel Heaton, Create & Craft regular and all round amazing papercraft artist. And Jodie Johnson, Tonic's own genius Jodie who is also a regular on Create & Craft. See, I told you it was the *Ultimate* !!! *click on the gals' names to see their blogs too :O))* And.. there will also be a shop on board, provided by my friend Carolyn from Pickwell Farm... told ya, the *Ultimate* :O)) All the details about the cruise are HERE
I have never been on a cruise you know... and when Jim from ScrapMap first asked me to do this, he said to me "Have you ever been on a cruise?" My reply? "Erm, no, but I have been on a boat on the Broads" I mean really, like there is any comparison!!!! But, I am used to moving about quickly - being a Train Driver soon gets rid of any motion sickness lol Here's the "boat" we will be sailing on... Just a little one then!!!
As well as classes with us four teachers, you will also be using the very best crafting supplies, you will learn a plethora of techniques, get hints and tips from us on how to make your crafting really special... there will be a commemorative tote bag stuffed full of goodies worth over £100, special evening activities and... a private cocktail party... wow, I have never been to a cocktail party (diet starts tomorrow right?)
I cannot even begin to describe just how excited I am... but I will try!!! !!! Imagine it is Christmas, your birthday, the eve of your Wedding, the day you get a new puppy or kitten and the day Postie is bringing your new stashly pressies... well, like that... but multiplied by a millionzilliontrillion!!! And on that note, I am away to lay down in a darkened room, I so needs to calm down!!! Thanks for looking, have a very goodly day!!! TTFN
PS... I think this post qualifies for the "most amount of exclamation marks used in one post" lol
