Hello there, how are you? enjoying the weekend I hope. For the first time in weeks and I mean weeks I had a lie in (bliss!) and now I am blogging and then I will tackle the DISAAASTER (if you watch Strictly you will have read that with Craig’s R H’s accent, LOL) that is my stamping room. It needs a good going over I expect I will be in there the whole day.
Now of course before each Convention lots of crafting takes place in the form of swap making. I am sooo grateful to have the most amazing bunch of talented crafty friends who helped me stamp and assemble 265 of those pretties here in about 5 hours, we did stop for lunch that lovely hubs prepared and served, he really is such a great help to me and my business. So a huge thank you to Jane, Alison, Joanne and Carol you are the best ladies hugs xxx
here’s the card I swapped this Convention
I really liked this card best out of all I designed(will show you the ones that didn’t make the short list later) and while on the surface it looks quite a simple card is not when you talk abot making 265 of them. All the punching took is toll on the ladies and they were all very tired at the end of it. Chocolate Chip, Ridinghood Red and Old Olive was the colours used and I just love this red is warm and muted and very suited to Choc Chip.. The bird is from my fave hostess set this year Punch Pot Pourri, you can get this set for FREE by hosting a workshop with me or by Joining my next Virtual hostess club, we need just 2 more members for one starting at the end of November, click here for more details.
I also took part in a Card Candy swap and this was just pure delight. I adore the samples I got back and here they all are for you to see, what talent this ladies have. THANK YOU for swapping with me!!
I have received so many gifts and lovely treats from my team, my demo friends, my wonderful roomie and I have not taken pictures of them all before hand and because I have let’s say consumed so many of them already I cannot show you pictures of the rest of the gifts for the fear of missing someone out and upsetting them. I do want to say though that I am thankful and grateful for each and every one of you, thank you so much for thinking of me, I will use/wear them with pride.
I have also received some very special awards for my hard work this last year along with a £500 cash bonus that will go towards a new lens for my camera and some truly exquisite wallpaper for my hallway after I paid the tax man of course.
Coming third was a total surprise as I expected to be first again !!!!! LOL. I am kidding of course as a demo you have not idea how the other hard working demos are doing and all I can do is share what I love and continue to better my last year efforts, I was secretly hoping to be in the top 5 so top 3 was just FABULOUS.
Here’s all my certificates THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN if you are a customer of mine or a valued team member.
Certificates along with a fabulous Michael Kors Chronograph watch, is really pretty and it has just the right amount of bling and the mother of pearl face is so pretty.
Cannot wait for Summer now so that I can wear it ( is funny as I wear this Michael Kors watch now and this one is rather blingy too) THANK YOU Stampin’Up!! smile.
I hope you enjoyed reading a bit more about the fabulous Convention in London and remember next year we are going to DISNEYLAND Paris, want to come? send me an email and I will tell you how you can telemech01@aoldotcom.
