Mixture of a blog, Brussels, stamps etc

Hi,

Well this is just a mixture of a blog today because I have got so many exciting things to tell you! Yes, I went to Brussels to Stampin’Up! Onstage Live!  It was extra special for me because it was the first time I had earned CentreStage, which is for those Leaders of Teams who had promoted to Silver 2 or Silver Elite and above!  It was a great time meeting up with fellow Demonstrators from Europe, as well as other Countries, Australia, America, Canada etc.  We had a very sad moment when we all heard the news about Paris because we had Demonstrators from France, who obviously were very upset.  These lovely ladies are our ‘sisters’ and we all united and comforted each other and decided to carry on the convention if a little subdued.

I will be posting pictures of the event along with my swap and other swaps I received plus all the freebies in the next couple of days, but I also wanted to tell you about the latest offer on stamps!

I Went to Telford with some of my Team!

Last Friday and Saturday I went to a Stampin’Up! Regional Training event in Telford. Some of my amazing Team came with me and it was great fun, full of inspirational fellow Stampin’Up! Demonstrators, inspirational ideas and of course the Sneak Peak of the ‘All-New’ Stampin’Up! Catalogue, which comes out 2 June 2015!

On the Friday I met my Upliner, Michelle Last and other Team Leaders at Telford for Afternoon Tea and to talk about our Businesses, where we want to be in twelve months time, and lots of other inspirational chatter. Mind there was also alot of eating, cream cakes, the odd sandwich and lots of tea and coffee!

Here’s a Photo of us all!

Some Amazing and Inspirational Leaders!

We then went out for a lovely meal, which was a fitting end to a year filled with hard work, developing our Teams, giving support and having a great time crafting with our customers and Teams. Thanks to Michelle Last for organising this and as you can see from the Photo I had a gorgeous piece of Fillet Steak! The puddings were so huge we had one between the 7 of us! lol

Fillet Steak, Chips, Salad, oh and on top a huge slice of onion and half a tomato!

The following day (Saturday) was the Regional Training Day, and some of my Team travelled up together to spend the day with me and hopefully go away filling inspired! There were about 350 fellow Stampin’Up! Demonstrators there and you can imagine the buzz around the room as everyone swapped their swaps – this is a project that we all make lots of and swap with other Demonstrators, so we go home with lots of ideas for our classes or just for ourselves to make cards etc.

Here is my Swap:

We all had a fantastic time at Telford, watching demonstrations, listening to inspirationals talks about Stampin’Up! and their vision for their future as well as ours. You may be thinking ‘ooh a lot of business talk, not my cup of tea’, but you would be wrong! There was also alot of examples of cards and other projects that were made with some of the Brand New products. We also of course had ‘Prize Patrol’! This is such a fun time, where were all got a prize and others got more! Go check out my Gallery page for lots of photos of some of the projects we got to see.

You too could join me next year, or even come with me to Brussels in November for our Brand New looking Convention – OnStage Live! For more information please contact me and I can tell you all about what I do, what Stampin’Up! is and you could be browsing through the Brand New Catalogue that is out 2 June 2015!

Thanks for dropping by and look forward to hearing from you.
