Scottie Convention 2009 -- Scottie in the Arts

I just returned from the Scottie Convention in Cincinnati. Had a great time visiting with my friends and family.

The Convention began on Wednesday with Room Hoping. Thursday brought the Scottie parade around the hotel led by a bagpiper.

After the parade, we had "Show & Tell" followed by lunch and a educational seminar led by artist Constance Coleman. After her informative talk about Scottie in the Arts, she signed autographs and Campbell's Scottish Terriers took pictures.

In the evening, the auction began. There are "no friends at auction"; however, it was a lot of FUN!

Margie Jones won this large plush Scottie bag.
On Friday, there was more shopping at the Sale-a-thon. In the afternoon we learned about ceramic Scotties.
Saturday is the Old Displays. Lori used the theme of the conference to create a Scottie museum diaroma. Wow!

On Saturday afternoon, I lead a Scottie Scrapbooking class. If you'd like to see photos of the scrapbook pages, click here.

Kylie did a great job on her page.
Saturday evening was the formal dinner followed by the Scottie fashion show.

Can't wait for the Scottie Convention 2010!
A very special thanks to the Cincinnati Scotty Friends for organizing all of the convention.
