Hi there stampers!

Just popping in here today to tell you a bit about the wonderful opportunities that Stampin' Up! offers its demonstrators.

* Oooops!, I have just reread this post and it has turned into a long one! Grab a cuppa and make yourself comfy!*

Every year, SU puts on a Regional Event in each state, this year in Perth it is being held at the Burswood Entertainment Complex. A Regional Event is an amazing day full of stamping, learning new techniques and getting together with other local demonstrators. Most of these lovely ladies spend weeks making "swaps" which is a card, or 3D item etc to swap with other demos, so that we all go home with new ideas and new examples for our customers. If you have been to a craft event where a bunch of ladies are swapping with other ladies, then you might have some idea of the level of excitement. The very first Regional I ever went to was at the Perth Convention Centre, and you could hear the laughter and excited chatter as soon…

Tom Cruise and a Doctor's Bag!!

Hi there stampers!

I just spent an interesting morning at my local cinema where I saw "Rock of Ages" starring Tom Cruise - that man blew me away in this role!! He has come across a bit odd in recent years, but anyone who can make a fool out of themselves in such a great way, certainly has a fantastic sense of humour in my book! Don't go thinking this is a 'serious' musical, it is as much a spoof as it could be - and I loved every minute of it! Thank goodness there were only a few people in the cinema with me, because I sang along with all the songs!! (mind you, so did they lol!).

I got home to find hubby had hung out the washing on what has turned out to be a gorgeous day weather-wise, and a parcel for me from Stampin' Up! which turned out to be the Doctor's Bag for my bigshot!! It is much bigger than I imagined and inside it is the most gorgeous shade of pink!! (and if you know me, you know how much I like pink!!) - I can't wait to take this to my ne…
