Cape we come

Ladies (and Gentlemen) !!

So, my little family now has 14 days until our car is pointed in a very Northerly direction....making great haste towards the pointiest tip of Queensland!  Yep...we're off to Cape York in exactly 14 days.

Now, that is obviously going to mean no crafting days for me for a month, and because I am going to be suffering severe withdrawls...I am opening up my home one last time before we go.

Come along for the day - have fun, chat, make, create, nothing if you wish...just as long as you are there, enjoying the time!!

RSVP?  All you have to do is drop me a line!!

Have fun all!

Happy New Year!

Yes, that's right....HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

No, you aren't imagining things...I am celebrating New Year's on 1st September!

Oh don't sit there and ask "what the???" - you should know well enough by now that September 1st is the New Year for Stampin' Up!, and we celebrate the launch of our new Idea Book and Catalogue; our new In Colours Range; new products; new stamps......everything wonderfully, excitingly NEW!

What are YOU doing on September 1st?  Well if you are anywhere near my home, you are welcome to walk through the open door, and join me in launching the New Year with FUN, FLAIR, and a whole lot of "Fantastic-Ness"!

There's no charge to come; you don't even have to bring anything with you...other than two free hands, and a smile!  Okay...two free hands - I'll do the rest and give you something to smile about when you get here.

I so want to share with you all the goodies, and yummies, and fun things.....but you will just have to come along and find out for yourselves!

Yes, you are right...I am really darn excited this New Year, and I can assure you that you will be too, when you see what's in store!

Who might just win one of the lucky door prizes, just for coming along!

 See you "at mine" for New Years Day!!!

2012 - New Year, New ideas, New everything!


So after my move to QLD on 31st December 2010, I've had a fairly eventful year!

Not only getting used to a new suburb, region, STATE....but trying to find a job that I can really enjoy.  And whilst I have done that, I still find myself enjoying the "me" time that my Stampin' Up!  moments give me.

I have set up a dedicated room in the house as  "My Craft Zone", and the dining room is so bright and airy that it has become a fantastic class area too!

During all this, I met a really lovely lady (Lisa) who was interested in the Stampin' Up! products - I mean who wouldn't be? - and when she dropped over to see them, she made a single purchase..... the Starter Kit!  Yes, her  "purchase" was her own Stampin' Up! business!  This was soon followed by her own Downline, Anne.  Anne sadly returned to NZ, and had to resign, but these two ladies are such amazing friends who I would have never known if I didn't do what I love doing.....Stamping, Scrapbooking.....and having an amazing product range to do it with!

Now that it's 2012 and I am starting to set down some "roots" (so to speak), I'm also starting to look at what I do, why I do it, and why it's something that I want to share with EVERYONE!

The Demonstrations don't cost anything (there's no attendance fee!); everyone gets to join in with a "make-n-take" (that's just what it sounds like too - you get to make something, and take it with you), and you aren't  "guilted" into hosting your own demonstration.  We don't work that way.

All I can say is that once you have played with these stamps, papers, inks, ribbons, brads, embossing tools, embellishments (I'll stop now!); you will become as happily addicted to creating hand-made works of joy. 

I have said it so many times, and I stand by it..."Let Your Creativity Fly" !!

New Arrival !

So, January I arrived at my new home, and I have to say that I truly wish I had done this years ago.  Even with all the flooding, rain, cyclone ravages - Brisbane is gorgeous.

With all the chaos of moving, and getting Rhiannon organised into school; unpacking all the boxes, and discovering we just don't have enough storage space; sending out application after application for jobs (and even getting some temp work!).....I have only just gotten around to updating the blog....sorry!

Saturday evening just gone, I did my first Brisbane class, and I am happy to say that it did go very well!  So here's to my new enterprise.  Who knows...Springfield Lakes today....tomorrow....THE WORLD!!  Okay, might be a bit over the top there, but at least South West Brisbane?  LOL
