The Money or The Bag?

I am laughing so hard have you read Nic Howards Blog about her visit to Timaru she reminded me of Selwyn Togood's Money or the Bag show - what a crack up i guess that is also showing our age!

But seriously I reckon Nic honestly enjoyed Timaru and the lovely ladies that came to take her class's on Saturday.

I was just so relieved when my daughter (who probably talked Nic's ear off on the journey from Christchurch all the way to Timaru - sorry about that lol) txt to say they had our precious cargo on board because then I knew the day would be a good one, no fog the plane could land (whew) although the earth did move when it knew Nic was coming as Timaru felt an earthquake at 5.46am!  

We started the day with the layout class and boy did those sewing machines take a hammering and the lovely ladies again didn't stress or get annoyed by the wait, they all got to know each other in the queue - a joke or two even being told!  Here are a couple of pic's showing you that old and new photo's worked just brilliantly with this layout:

Then in between the class's the fantastic cook/scrapbooker/photographer/mother/friend etc Beck made these delicious cup cakes for us to much on (she was actually trying to make the rest of us weigh in HEAVY on Monday) thanks Beck they were SO yummy check out Beck's blog for the recipe!

Then the Card Buffet class started and there was a delicious variety of flowers, bling, glitter, lace etc to play with along with some YUMMY fudge that Nic made and brought with her if you ask her nicely I am sure she will part with the recipe ;-)

Here is a picture of someone's card that they made, seriously all the cards were so individual and even though they came off the same instructions they were all different check out here to see more!

I want to take this opportunity also to thank my friends, Bronwyn, Christine, Beck, Jo & Sean for helping me set up and to Diane, Beck, Jayne, Bronwyn & Anne for loaning me the extra tables and to everyone who stayed behind to help pack up again, without this help it wouldn't be possible for me to run these days and it is all the behind the scene work like that, that makes it all possible.  *big hugs* to you all.

Thanks to all the ladies that travelled all the way from Invercargill, Dunedin, Gore and Chirstchurch etc you girls rock!

Also a big thanks to Nic Howard who gave up her time with her family to come to Timaru and take these class's, we appreciate it so very much!  

Next up is the Crop on the 25th of April and also taking bookings now for Raincliff Winter Retreat all details on our web site!

Have a great week everyone - happy crafting!
