Webcam natter

I had a really nice time yesterday afternoon. Not only did I have a visit from my good friend Deb- but I also had the pleasure of chatting away for 2 hours with lovely ladies from blogland with her via Skype.
We got ourselves ready, put some lippy on and did our hair (a girl has to look her best)- then I put the kettle on and before we knew it Deb from USA was bleeping us to say Hi. Then as if by magic other lovely ladies popped up on the screen.

I've  met Ruth before at a weekend retreat we both went to where we sat opposite each other,and the lovely Karen is one of the organisers of the monthly crop we go to.
 I hadn't met Rhona before but I have already visited her blog and feel I know her already.Carrie  was alongside her mum Deb in USA  and It was amazing to think we were all talking from a room in our house thousands of miles apart as if we had met loads of times. Mel - well I feel as the though we have known each other for ages- we chatted after we both went to Tim Holtz's class and have tweeted each other on various occasions.The time seemed to fly past as we all took turns to show and tell and generally catch up.
Ha- We look like we're posing for a brochure or something here !!
So - Shimelle's class Blogging for Scrapbookers is re-running again from today and It was very apt that we all got together for a chat near to a Shimelle class as that is how a lot of us met in Blogland.I bet Shimelle would be very pleased at the friendships we have made..

That 2nd photo was a great idea ~ much more perspective. And I had the same thought about Shimelle. I need a catchy title for the LO I'm planning about our chat ~ any ideas??!

LOVE this post and the photos of you girls enjoying our chat! It was SO much fun. I tried explaining it to my co-workers this morning and they don't really get it. Personally, I thought it was pretty amazing! :o) xo
