Make time, book your flight! More information will be coming soon.
I attended this year as a guest--and I had an absolute blast. I am planning to do all I can to get back next year. I have never in my life met a doll group so enthusiastic and welcoming!
Not only did I sell out of my books, I was surprised and delighted to have Tricia, one of the event coordinators, meet me at the airport (at 11 PM at night) to take me to my hotel (even when there was a free shuttle). She also arranged for a ride to the meeting site the next day--which I didn't even need, since I was able to get a lift with other very friendly attendees also staying at the hotel.
The hotel was nice and quiet. The meeting facilities were huge. The food was great. The people--oh my goodness! They were all wonderful. Even the staff whose parents volunteered them for the day were enthusiastic. (I even got a free movie review!)
I felt welcomed and at home, and my classes were well attended, and I hope the attendees felt like they learned something new. I was able to meet lots of people I'd only ever "spoken" to online. It was really fun. There was a great raffle and even better auction, too.
So make time on your schedule--and save your money! There was tons of great goodies in the sales room. You'll want to be there next year! (And if someone from there invites you as a guest--don't hesitate! Say yes!!)
