Sharon just had to take a picture of me working on orders and eating chocolate cake last night.
I don't really have any pictures from today to post, it was all work. Tomorrow we are renting a car and tootling around and then on Thursday it's homeward bound. It will be nice to be home but I am definitely not looking forward to the snow and heavy coats especially since it is getting nicer here.

Well it's off to put my sore swollen feet up, eat chocolate cake and watch Mama Mia.

My last workshop of the day was called The Queen Bee, it was with Suze Weinberg again and was alot of fun. We worked with bees wax and a Hot Wax Art Stylus. I was a little uncertain after I had put the coloured wax on the cover of my book, but a little bit of gold powder and it was good to go. Here's a picture, I actually like it alot though it's not quite done.

Well Sharon and I made it here safe and sound. It's 5pm here and were already in our pj's. I know what your thinking but we have been up since 3:15am home time, and it really is 8pm at home. So tomorrow is the start of the workshops and then the trade show starts on Sunday 750 plus vendors, lots of walking and do make and takes. I will try and take pictures daily and post every night. So I will sign off for now and just let you know that the sale at the store is going to continue till the end of the month so pop in and see Odette.

So here is the 'Did You Know'. Denise was just telling us about her brother-in-law who was supposed to go to the Bahamas and they wouldn't let him fly because his passport was going to expire a month after he was flying. Apparently Transport Canada has this rule that if your passport is going to expire within 6 months from the date of your flight, you can't fly. I guess the airlines can be fined $5000 if they let someone fly, so you might want to double check this if you are heading somewhere warm.
