Remember I said down here that Shelli Garnder inspires me and I admire what she has created. Want to know a little more about her story? Then be sure to spend a few minutes to watch this video to see how she created Stampin' Up.
Come along to the charity event for a great day out - Central Coast Craft, Quilt, Dolls & Bear Expo at Wyong Race Course on Sunday 24th May. Support the Cancer Care Services for Gosford and Wyong while enjoying the wonderful eye candy available for all us crafty ladies.
Guess what!? I'm going to be there. With papercraft displays, products to purchase and demonstrations it is worth the visit. Come and spend a Sunday supporting a worthwhile charity while having fun yourself, and make sure you drop by our stall to say hi (and maybe take home a card or two!!).
Happy Mothers Day to all my wonderful friends and customers. I hope you all have a fabulous day and that you get spoilt.
I have started the morning by doing my job.........yep, a sick little boy to look after. But on top of that I have been spoilt with lots of gifts from the school Mothers Day Stall, a Singstar (love a bit of closet karaoke) and been dished up a gorgeous breakfast of croissants and fresh fruit. My Mum is along side me enjoying it too.
Here is the card I made for Mum:
We made this in the Mothers Day class last week. The flower is called a Dahlia Fold Flower and is quite easy to create once you get the hang of the fold.
The flower pops out for you to write on the card.
I also made her a scrapbook page fold-out which I will try to photograph today before she takes it home.
4 More sleeps and it is the time to celebrate being a Mother. I love this job, not all the time but the majority of it I love. Nothing brings me more joy than my three boys.
Stamping.............now I love that too! Did I need to tell you that though?? Combining the two is just perfect. So if your other-half and kiddies need something that you will enjoy for a Mothers Day gift, why not a Gift Certificate. Give hubby my email address (email@example.com) and I can make him up something like this to give you on Sunday morning:
Inside is a Gift Certificate to the value of his choice. Then you can browse the catalogue while you eat your breakfast in bed and choose what you are going to spend it on.
Need a gift for YOUR Mum. Why not get her one too?
I know I have been really slack lately with blogging some pretty things to look at. Life has been very hectic and I am loving every minute of it.
This last weekend I travelled down to Canberra for the Stampin' Up Convention and had an absolute blast. Liz, Georgina and I shared a room at the Novotel and had the best time (including a reeeeeally long breakfast). The convention included Make & Takes and business talks, along with swaps and presentations. Including a few from Shelli Gardner, the CEO and Co-Founder for Stampin' Up. We are really lucky here in Australia because we are so new to Stampin' Up, the attendance at the convention was not too big. Therefore, Shelli gets to meet and greet the demonstrators and she is so gracious at having her photo taken with us. She made comment while doing so that in the US she can't do this because they have over 7000 attendees. I did the groupie thing and had my photo taken with her. Her story and gentle nature inspire me and I took great joy in meeting her.
I have been totally inspired and look forward to sharing so many more photos of my work with you. Thanks for stopping by.
