Yesterday, I spent the day with 330 other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators at Telford, for our 2013 Regional Training event.
As always, a Stampin' Up! event is always the time to re-charge the battteries to get back in the swing again.  Sadly, dear little blog is always the last area to get some attention :-(
Friday, I collected two of my team, Laura and Elaina, and we took a relaxing trip, stopping off at a craft goody supplier on the way, of course.  Once there, we met with up with another teamie Alison and some other fellow demonstrators from another team who travelled with her from north of the county.
I made 100 swaps which were the design I created for the Suffolk Papercraft Show in Bury St Edmunds last week.

Part punched but still more to go .....


Half of these were in Pink Pirouette which will sadly retire at the end of June.  The other half were in Blushing Bride, a previous In-Colour that will be returning from 1st July.
 ..... and finally all completed .....

As numbers of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators has grown considerably, we are now often asked to be creative and make our own name badges.  Elaina kindly offered to make mine while I was at work Thursday, which saved me having a late night making after class.  HUGE thank you, E :-)
At training, we were privvy to updates on lots of new and exciting things coming from Stampin' Up! soon but all remain under very tight wraps until they release full details to us shortly.
If you want to be among the first to find out about these changes then why not join my team ?  With Stampin' Up! celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year, we once again have a special offer for all recruits until 30th May 2013, receiving an extra £25 in their starter kit for FREE.  (See seperate tab at top of my blog for details).
Be sure to pop back and visit me again soon.

Well, here I am, back blogging again. 
As always, my life has been moving at a fast pace with work and other life's events. Dad has been staying with us now since the end of June last year and has just moved into his new bungalow last week. I have had two periods of sickness from work recently, having a bad attack of Tonsilitis at Easter, which left me with a really deep, hacking cough.  Being thoroughly tired and washed out, not sleeping well, a 3rd lot of anti-biotics finally got me back to feeling human again.
Some of you may have noticed that I have been playing around with my blog over the last few weeks, as I've tried to create a clearer and more user friendly layout. It's still a 'work in progress' project but at least the ball is rolling again.
At the same time, I have gradually been moving more towards social media with Facebook and have now added a Facebook Business page which can be found at
Please come over and have a look and 'like' my page.  Pop back soon for an update on Stampin' Up! training event I attend in Telford this weekend.
