Things have been crazy busy (what's new) and I am currently so blessed to be traveling and teaching in Europe. I spent the better part of last week in Oslo and Tonsberg in Norway, it was an amazing experience!
First I went to Oslo to teach at the largest scrapbook store I have ever seen called HobbyKunst! I did four workshops, the ladies were all amazing and I hope they all had a fabulous time. We had a lot of laughs! A huge thank you to HobbyKunst for hosting me and to Connie Baever (and Finn) for taking me into her home as a guest... she did have me try the famous Norwegian brown cheese but I just couldn't get the taste for it LOL .
Here is Connie and one very tired me! We look a bit crazed in this photo.
Here are some photos from the HobbyKunst Classes:
Next I was off to Tonsberg to visit with the lovely ladies Monica and Hege from Gode Minner store. I took a ferry across the Oslo Fjorden which took about half an hour but it was a very smooth ride and they had WIFI lol!
Special thanks again to Monica who opened her lovely home to me and her wonderful family. Special hugs to Benjamin and Benedicte xxx
Monica, Me and Hege
I spend the whole day Sunday teaching at Gode Minner again with an amazing group of ladies :)
Thanks again to all the ladies who came to the workshops, I hope you had as much fun learning as I did teaching. xxx
When I was in Tonsberg I was so very lucky to meet one of the very talented girls from the Prima Design Team - Lene Bjornerud. Lene thank you for driving one hour to come and meet me, it was wonderful to see you xxx
And now for Oslo:
Connie and her lovely friend Annika took me out for the day. We went to this amazing park in Oslo called Vige Land Parken, it has amazing statues everywhere including the apparently famous 'Angry Boy'.
This is me and the lovely Annika :)
After my workshops in Tonsberg on Sunday, I spent Monday with Monica from Gode Minner. She took me to this lovely old castle on top of a small but steep hill (yes I walked up!) It overlooks Tonsberg and the view was stunning!
That evening Monica, Hege and I went for a walk along the pier at Tonsberg.
On Tuesday we went to see original Viking Ships at the VikingHus, these ships are total amazing...the vikings weathered all kinds of conditions at sea!
On my last night in Oslo we all went out for dinner. Thanks Connie, Monica and Hege, I had a fantastic time with you all xxx
