I just wanted to say a very BIG thankyou to my very cool friend and fellow demonstrator Diane Barnes. Di has helped me set up this blog and answered many questions I had as I was a bit clueless (still am a little but getting better). Thankyou for sharing your time and ideas with me. Di and I catch up regularly to bounce ideas off each other which is great. The day goes rather quickly and sometimes we get stuff done and other times I think we talk more than we create but at the end of the day we have FUN. If you haven't already done so you need to check out Di's blog
