I have so much to share that I will have a lot to write about every day, rather than overwhelm with one huge blog to slog through. I wish I could have written about it as I experienced it, but Internet access aboard ship was sooooo expensive. I think Christi told me she paid $99 for 4 hours of access!!!

Lord Opuson and I found our way to our stateroom in the bowels of the ship (deck 1 inside cabin - the theory being that we are only in our rooms to sleep, we will save money this way for shore excursions).
|Small cabin but it had more closet space|
than at my house!
And we got our swag bags! WOW, I was totally blown away. The sponsors this year were excessively generous. That will be another blog all by itself. AND there were daily giveaways with everyone winning something - AND a final big door prize of a KILN. Jackie had brought it on board to fire our metal clay pieces from her class and rather than shipping it back, was giving it way to one lucky person.
I was planning to write about the trip in daily order, but I just can't now ... I am too excited to keep it in.
I WON THE KILN!!!!!!!!!!!! I am totally blown away about it. I don't have any pix yet as I am trying to figure out were it is going to go. My house is tiny and I want to be sure I set it up properly so I don't burn it down (proper distance from walls, heat precautions and all that). I am going to touch bases with my old glass instructor as to the hows and wheres for proper kiln placement. Then I will be off and running ...
