Here I am again!

Hi everyone, I can't believe I am back home again! 4 1/2 weeks is really long to be a way, but I really had a good time!

I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for making the trip such a success, the three ladies who invited me out did themselves to make me feel at home, thank you Iris, Cornelia and Claudia!
Thank you to all the ladies and gents who partook in the workshops, I have great memories and really treasure them:)

Here are a few snapshots of the workshops and a few images of the wonderful countries I had the pleasure of being in......

Ah, finally!!! I've been waiting and waiting. I didn't want to rush your time in Europe but I've really missed you.
I'm so glad you had a wonderful experience in your travels.
Seeing all those "Astrid-style" beads was . . . I can't find the right words. It was a bit weird in a way because your style is so distinctive but great also because now so many people have a piece of you.
Welcome home.

Hallo Astrid,
schön dass du und deine Familie wieder wohlbehalten zu Hause angekommen bist.
Dein Kurs war super, ich habe viel gelernt und übe jetzt Wig Wag's, Murrini etc. und deren Anwendung.

Wow Astrid it looks like you had a fantastic time. There are not a lot of people in this world who can make a living doing something they love, travel the world with it and have fun. Now you have to plan your next lamp working adventure :)

I am really pleased that you all enjoyed the workshops :)

I haven't made any new beads yet, but today I will definitely get behind the torch!

Lots of hugs

You're such a admirable and likeable personality, a great artist & professional teacher - I enjoyed the days being with you in Ratingen and Vienna. Hope, to see you again, anytime....
