Convention Swaps

Hi all,

yep back again. Just a little late in getting my post convention post up!!

Wow well what an experience, I have got to say my first impression was of being overwhelmed - so many excited women talking and swapping. I recognised some and got to meet some special people - waving hi to Linda (you won't have realised but you got my first swap ever - and yours was my first swap!!) , Sarah Jane and Kirsty. It blew me away that a few people recognised me!!(Hi Natasha - thanks for saying hi :) Overwhelming as I said but really nice.

Before I go any further I want to say hello to some lovely ladies I got to meet and spend time with at Convention. First my sideline Krysta - it was really fun to share this experience with you.

Then some friends of a dear friend who gladly adopted Krysta and I - waving a big hi to Di, Leanne, Kelly, Cathy and Anamaria. Here's a picture of us with Shelli. Yep I'm in a picture with Shelli - it just spins me out saying that - its so surreal.

Finally I also want to send out a hello to Sharnee and Carli these two were real fun to share a table with for the make and take session - even sleep deprived (- I'm sure you've read the two time fire alarm story on lots of blogs).

Thanks to the above ladies (to me the most important thing about convention is the people - I loved all the creative ideas, general sessions, memento hall, the dinner and awards (the Fijian dance troupe was amazing!!) I had a wonderful first convention experience and am looking forward to going to Melbourne in 2011 to catch up with "old" friends and meet some of the other talented people I only glimpsed this time.

Now, finally, if you have managed to hang on through all of the above here are my swaps.
