Exciting Days Ahead......

Hi Crafty Friends,

I hope everyone is off to a great start to the week.  On Saturday I held my catalogue launch party.  There was an amazing turnout of friends, some of whom I hadn't seen for quite some time. It was wonderful to catch up and share with everyone some of the amazing new products.  Everyone got their own goodie bag which was jam packed with freebies and essential items needed for the new catalogue.
I always love the start of a new catalogue. The excitement of all these new items is just like how I used to feel just before Christmas.  If you haven't seen it yet and don't have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to send you a catalogue.  I know I say it every year, but this is the best one yet.  It really is jam packed with awesome new products, as well as some old favourites.  My absolute must get for the new catalogue is the amazing Eastern Palace bundle.  The papers are truely luxurious and the dies are probably the most versatile die set I have ever seen.

Next up in my life is my beautiful Cavies.  Coco is an amazing Mumma.  Her babies are all gaining well and some have even started to walk. Today they are 3 weeks old.  All have opened their eyes and ears.  I love being a surrogate fur momma. I often think about how lucky I am to be able to fill my life with Stampin' Up! and have my family, friends and Cavies by my side. This truly is the best job in the world.  If you are interested in how you can make new friends, get great products at a discounted price all while crafting your heart out, please call me and we can talk about this awesome opportunity.

Finally, Tomorrow is D Day!
Tomorrow Im going to be a guest artist with Split Coast Stampers.  Can you believe it??? Me!
The amazingly talented Dina Kowal has been collaborating with me to bring you the Magic Reveal Spinner Card.
Please take the time to check out all the other fabulous tutorials that are on offer there.  Make sure you make yourself a huge cuppa and have a comfy spot as you're going to be there a while.  Just as addictive as Pinterest.

Until next time,
Stay Crafty,
