Nashville was turned orange for a day!!!!







Saturday was a day to be remembered always. Fiskars and Rebecca hosted the Nashville Fiskafrienzy. WOW!!!!! That sums it up. The day started out with Suzzanne signing in Fiskateers who came early (would I do that?) because we were so anxious. As the door opened Patty passed out the first of many gifts to each person. Rebecca got the party started and believe me we were so eager to meet people who we only knew from the online message board and chats. So many, I knew from their creative works that I have admired on the gallery. We got to do a make and take from Lil' Davis. In the morning we were treated to danish and muffins. We cropped until it was time to get on the party bus. What is a party bus, you may ask! It is a school bus that has a DJ, black lights and bright colored lights in the floor and ceiling. People danced up and down the aisles. The bus was rockin' all the way to the recording studio where we recorded a Fiskateer parody of Boot Scootin' Boogie- written by our own Cherrie. She did a terrific job, but with our singing Brooks and Dunn have no worries.



When everyone returned door prizes were given out- left and right. Wow!!!!!! We cropped for a little while before it was the time to head out to the Nashville Palace where we learned to line dance to out own song. Meghan was named Fiskateer of the Year- and so deserving!!!!! She and her husband were so sweet.



We had a great dinner there and returned to the crop room at the hotel. We really did more talking, making friends and laughing that scrapbooking. I had so much fun talking with people . We truly were treated to Southern hospitality at its best.



I still have a sore throat from laughing so much. In the evening brownies and blondies came. We had water, soft drinks ( and Dr Pepper) and Red Bull.



This day was truly worth the 7 hour drive each way. I feel so blessed to have been able to make this trip.

Sounds like you had a blast. I would have loved to have attended one of the Fiska events but unfortunately it wasn't possible. Who knows, maybe next year.
