We held our A Muse Instructor Training this past weekend in Seattle. We had more than 35 A Muse Instructors and Designers in town for this event! I had a wonderful time getting to know some of the newer members of our team and meeting some of our "veterans" for the first time!
We started the weekend with a Cupcake Social where we invited our local customers to meet our creative team, feast on some yummy treats and do a fun make & take. It was a lot of fun and at times it was wall-to-wall people! Thank you to all of our customers for welcoming our team to Seattle! It was nice to see you all again.
One of my longtime A Muse email buddies from Georgia emailed me shortly after we announced our plans for the Cupcake Social. She was wondering if it was a crazy idea to fly to Seattle for the event to meet everyone. Of course, I said yes but that she should most definitely do it anyways! LOL! Ingrid should win an award for travelling the longest distance for any A Muse event ever! We had LOTS of fun together!! Thank you Ingrid for joining us and for all your help!
Of course, it was not all fun and games! Our days were long and as you can see from the expression on Novell's face, we had a lot of interesting things to discuss. <smile>
A little Java helped keep things lively...
And, when Julie's around... it's always a good time!
I have seen lots of fun photos of our weekend together on some of the A Muse Crew's blogs so be sure to click on their links over on the left.
After everyone left, Julie and I spent the next seven hours cutting paper for our upcoming classes in MA and NH. Holy tomato - we cut a LOT of paper! We leave on a redeye flight later tonight! I better run as I have laundry and packing to do. Yikes!
I've convinced Julie to bring her flip camera so we can take some video footage of our travels & classes. If we can figure out how to upload them, we'll be sure to share upon our return!
Have a beautiful day!
