Thanks Susan and All for thinking of me. You can be sure I missed all of you too and was thinking of you at NAEA. Sounds like everyone had a great time but those of us who weren't able to attend are still waiting for more, more, more! Feels funny to be on the other side this year. Woody's pictures are great and it brought fond memories to me. I loved seeing everyone having a good time at the traditional breakfast. It always amazes me at the talent we have on this list and what they contribute at NAEA and in other arenas. I wish I could have attended the various presentations as well. Thanks for sharing all of your input. It is received greedily. Best regards to all. Nana Judy...AKA...

It was great to see my ARTSEDNET friends. I attended some very good workshops: Ann Ayer (a former Disney Teacher Honoree winner) was fabulous in her multiple presentations. Kay Broadwater on this list is a friendly and sweet woman whose presentation I could kick myself for missing, but heard it was fantastic. Got to attend our very talented Ken Schwab's hands-on workshop (and spend a little time with his adorable wife), and I'm still working on his embossing lesson. Thanks to Woody and Harold, who reached out to me, I was able to show my powerpoint (kinda-without the "We Are the World" music). Kept seeing Bunki and Carolyn in the first row for the presentations- those two don't miss a trick! Enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and dinners with so many of you, wonderful Sharon, Woody, Maggie ..even coffee with the delightful Linda Woods. Always great to see Marty from Square 1- she always reminds me that I have squares that SHE wants! Of course, I missed Judy Nagel, my good friend, with whom I usually trade Nana stories. If I missed mentioning anyone- sorry- it's all that comes to mind at the moment... more later...
I think the best part about being an active person is the perk of virtually seeing so many with whom I've shared experiences. I bumped into teachers from my Fulbright trip to Japan- my friend Linda from Alaska and John from the South. I just loved seeing Debi West from Georgia, y'all, and was part of her Kaliedescope presentation, where, my napkin design lesson was a hit, I'm told. Bumped into Katherine from my Robert Rauschenberg Power of Art weekend in Washington (and this list)....it was like Old Home Week! Come to Boston's Conference next year, you won't be sorry!
More on the workshops when I have time...
