... and WE DID IT!

-85 Porcelain doll kits (no breakage <G> WHEW!) for 85 students
-A month of traveling on trains, planes and car rides
-and an incredible collection of friendship memories to treasure

I also want to give a special SHOUT OUT of thankx - for the kindness and friendship of my hostesses - MARIANNE A (Netherlands), NATHALIE G (France), PAT C (Petersborough) and JEAN P (England).

(A BIG BIG HUG to Marianne who provided countless trips to and from the various airports (and TRAIN STATION) in Netherlands, as I used her for a *home* base. THANK YOU THANK YOU from your American *Daughter* <G> for finding me when I was soo lost on that train trip!)

NETHERLANDS


DAY 1 - DUCHESS Students - wow! The ladies did amazing - such a fun and easy group - even with the large size.


DAY 2 - Vespertine Class #1 - Such a wonderful day in this Netherlands cabin owned by Bianca. The inside was more of a museum with an incredible array of miniatures created by the owners!


Day 3 - Vespertine Class #2 - Fun and lots of laughter with this group. See the video when we are all doing the *Stress go away* Dance Video.

STUDENT COMMENTS ....

"It was such a pleasure to meet you!! And what a great workshop it was! I have enjoyed every minute of it and I still do, because Iam still working on my Vespertina. Iam going slow, but ohhh I so love to do it, to see how she is getting ready bit by bit. 

Dana you are not coming next year and that is a mistake! Instead of not coming, you should come like 3 or 4 times a year to learn me more! And ofcourse to meet you in person!" ......... Warm regards, Anita (Netherlands)
