To the Stampin' Up ladies in my lovely wife's team and to her customers. This blog post is for you. Many of you wished me well before I left for WBC in Dallas, so I feel it only right to give you a brief rundown of the events of the past 10 days.
On our first day, the Aussie team had to decorate the hotel foyer, and we came up with this masterpiece. Paint swirling down to a colour wheel and a feature wall painted by our new man, Mr Q !
Some delegates got involved in competitions and there were some awesome creations. This design won the large sculpture competition - just remember this is 100% balloons.
Yes the whole idea of WBC is to learn, and not just party. Here I am promoting the "learning" part of the convention in my class.
...and it would be remiss of me not to also promote the "partying" part of the convention. The theme was Circus so I came as the Aussie Human Cannonball!
The flying suit is authentic, as you will note by the strategic placement of the "easy access" zipper!!!
There were a large number of 'accented Aussies' at the convention, almost 30 of us, making us one of the largest represented of the 47 nations present. Here is the pick of the bunch - so to speak - with our large sculpture entry in the background!
It was great to catch up with some aquaintences and also to meet new friends.
...and you will agree with me that this is a fine example of American cuisine - also known as a "small pizza!"
That is about it from me. I just made it back yesterday. I hope to see you all at Marelle's launch on this Sunday. Just to clarify the human cannonball will not be able to attend, however his alter ego will be there to serve the food and drinks (with a smile) as usual!
