**Warning** Long and Fabulous Blog Post!!!



So much to tell you ......


Jane and I had an absolute ball in Brisbane last week!

As most of you know, one of our main suppliers here in Australia is Printblocks.
Over the last few days in Brisbane, they have held free classes and information sessions showcasing thier latest and greatest products. We spent a lot of time shopping in the warehouse which was rather fun and did quite a few classes! Jane and I flew into Brissy on Wednesday night and spent Thursday and Friday partaking in all sorts of classes. We met and mingled with about 12 international teachers, guests, designers from all of our favourite brands. Jane did classes with Lynette Carroll and Fancy Pants and I did classes with EK Success using some amazing K&Company products, Core'Dinations cardstock, Bo Bunny using the new Mama-Razzi line and Making Memories Slice using the AWESOME new magnetic Hands Free Kit.There were17 Make and Take Booths set up in the warehouse were we both learnt new and fabulous techniques and got to play with some new products.
Undoubtedly our favourite booth was the Graphic 45 one where Jane's work was up on display. Diane and Aimee from G45 spent their whole 2 days showing off Jane's beautiful work and creating the most delicious brooches with all the attendees! Jane became quite the celebrity with her final design team project being on display. (made me a little proud to be there with her!)
