Wonderful Weekend - and I am Copic certified!

hi there, what a weekend!
met up with Jennie Harper on Saturday - shoppped til we dropped LOL - then went to lunch and enjoyed "catch up"...so much to talk about and so little time... her "little" LSS is absolutely incredible!!! I did a good amount of "damage" heeeeee heeee heeeee here is a pic of a "few" things I got...and I am working on a wish for July when I go down again! Love that bag - has four separate zipper compartments...now when I travel, I travel with digis so no longer have to wheel my huge tote on wheels that weighs a ton.....

Olga and Carla, how far are you from Greensboro?  here is the store info - this lady has everything!!! She and her husband are so nice!!!
Jennie took a pic of us but it turned out too grainy - oh well, in July we'll get a group pic!!!

That evening was spent with my oldest daughter who drove a few hours and met me in Charlotte - we had such a good time. I dont remember when we've had time alone like that in years!!! Sunday morning we had breakfast together and then I was off to the Copic Certification and she was off to visit a friend that lives outside of Charlotte.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Copic Certification. The leader/teach was /Sally Lynn MacDonald. What an incredible talent and teacher and just full of inspiration! As the days go by, I'll post the tips she gave us....check out this package that was waiting for each of us..

We went through this entire Student Manual - she was really an incredible teacher (quite the enabler too!!! I ended up stopping back at Betty's store on the way home and spending the last of my money!)
but the best part of certification was meeting my cyber blogging buddy Micki Switzer! She and I are both members of the SCS blogging groups - the Divas and the Glitterbees!. Micki had already attended some classes that were available prior to certification....so whenever I was having trouble with a technique (which happened often throughout the day) ...all I had to do was lean over and watch Micki - she had them nailed!!!

She is so sweet! (I think I was about 8 people bigger than her LOL) Good memory!!!!
and finally, here is a pic of Sally...sorry it's so grainy...

It was a seven hour drive home (that took me 8 because I stopped like I said and shopped some more!)
but was just so enjoyable!!!!
Just thanked the Lord all the while for making it possible!!

hope I can put to use what I learned!!
have a great day!

I guess I am not suppose to say I am jealous, but I am! Horray for such a good time! You deserve every minute of it. You were trapped so many times this winter, that you must enjoy these good months. How wonderful that you got to spend time with Jennie and that you are now certified!
