Scrapping Angels Rock!

blogged by me domestic goddess On 9/25/2006 09:50:00 PM
Yes we truly do, with an international cast to play with us on our first outing as well!!

The weekend was a huge success due to the massive talents of Emily Falconbridge and Annie Hafermann, and not forgetting my right hand angel, Sue Baru.

I have to also thank Spike Hafermann for his scrumptious hash brown i was fed Saturday morning and the big hugs little Dean smothered me with over the weekend, you guys are the greatest.

The classes were inspirational, the delegates fantastic company and all extremely generous with their pennies. We raised a whopping £100.00 for the MS Society I cannot thank you all enough and to all the wonderful sponsors on UKS for their generosity when donating prizes to the raffle.
Emily signed books and showered the girls with lots of scrummy prizes and Emma from UKS won the Cathy Z challenge and a signed copy of Clean and Simple, lucky girl! All the entries were of an exceptionally high standard, I am so pleased I didn't enter this one.
In true Anna style I ended up with Laryngitis for the weekend, and now barely have a voice to talk with, and I hear no one complaining!
Retreat #2 is already being planned and the dates for next year are April 28-29th 2007, at Wyboston Lakes. This event will be much bigger, loads more classes, lots more inspirational teachers. Booking will be available from mid October

Today has been a toughy on the personal front as I have continued with the funeral plans, starting the day with a visit from the Humanist who will be doing the ceremony on Friday. i also have been to the funeral directors to give them dads clothes, photos and pictures from the girls. tomorrow I will be visiting dad as well.

I haven't stopped crying today, I have got through the last few days only shedding a tear or two, but today I havn't been able to stop, crazy isn't it

For those who may not have received an email, I will be starting to go through orders that have been placed in the last week or so and they will begin to be posted this week

Thank you for all your emails and pms of condolences and thank you for the donations I have received for my fundraising page in aid of the MS Society . Please keep them coming. I will have a donation plate at the funeral as well, every penny counts as they say!
Off to bed for me now, hope to start uploading some layouts and projects from the weekend as well. For now I will leave you with some fab photos form the retreat courtesy of Annie, thanks hun xoxox

    Hi Anna, I lost my Mum to MS just over two years ago, and have recently (2 weeks ago) been diagnosed myself, so I do have some understanding of what you are going through. Please do cry, it helps, and two years down the line you may begin to feel better, and not burst into tears as spontaneously as you did before. Keep yourself busy, it does help, but don't avoid your feelings, it's all part of the grieving process. Hugs from me.

    I'm glad Scrapping Angels went so well, I would have loved to attend, but it just didn't happen for me at such an emotive time.

    Just wanted to let you know you are not on your own Anna. J XX
