ZNE Convenzione Day Three! Post 4
By day three I was starting to get a bit tired, but everyone's laughter and joy kept me going and re-newed my energy. Today was going to be a big day, breakfast in the morning, workshop all day, event dinner right after, so no time to change into new clothes for dinner, so If I looked scary, lol, that was it! LOL!

AnnDenise, Mica, Ruth and Me scurried down to the lobby to get our shuttle driver and head to Carrow's to meet Lana for breakfast. I'd say for all of us East Coasters, Breakfast before class!Carrow's is equivilant to The International Pancake House or Perkin's. At Breakfast Lana presented me with the most beautiful gifts, one was an artcard she made with Dresden Trims and the next was a necklace she bought me at Tangerine, a piece made by the amazing Gina Gabriell, Here is a photo of the box it came in, I was wearing at this point, LOL!Breakfast before class w/Lana!After breakfast the real fun began, the shuttle forgot all of us at Carrows, Lana had left and went to the workshops, while we had to wait for the shuttle to come get us, since they had our supplies too. Oh I'd say an hour later it showed up, taking us to the fairgrounds to our event, let's say we were late, LOL! It made for some story telling and more laughter.

Today would bring alot of surprise for me, after getting the students supplied and ready to start the: Fairytale Follies Boat Box Class, I needed to un-wind for a second and re-group after a hectic morning. So I walked over to Iva's Class to say hi, here are some pictures of Iva Wilcox, Ann-Denise Anderson, Debrina Pratt and Yours Truly, LOL:iva lisa anndenise debrinaMe, Ann Denise and Debrina!Me, Ann Denise and Debrina! 2lisa and debrina2
