 breaking news.

Online ordering is here for the convenience of our wonderful customers. You will now be able to order when you want 24/7. How is that for convenience to our stamping, papercrafting ladies.

A great way for you to order products, You will still be able to get your hostess benefits etc just like before as if you had a party at home. Online ordering doesn't mean that I won't be available to you for advise, or being your demonstrator for parties at home, workshops etc.  Nothing in that dept has changed this is just giving you another avenue for your convenience. Have a peep at it and let me know your thoughts. cheers Joy.

Thank you to our Paper Crafting friends who attended our launch of this years STAMPIN' UP  catalogues on the 9th of Sept at Plants on Sturt.
We had about 40 lovely ladies spend the afternoon with us. It was a great Venue and thanks to our host Sonja beautiful coffee and yummy cakes were available for us.
I worked very hard to make lots of items for our guests to view . Sharen and I demonstrated techniques that could be used in both scrapbooking and card making.

On Entry our guest were given a Rose brooch that I had made out of card stock. A little folded gift pocket, a lucky door entry form and a Number for the 'Piece of Cake' prizes. The lucky ladies who received these pieces of cake (Hubby joking tells people 'They tasted like Cardboard") won the prize that was inside the little boxes shaped like the sections of cake. They also were able to take the 'cake ' home too!!

Looking at the projects and sale of retired stamps.

Yummy Coffee and Cakes Sonja had for us.
My version of  an Advent Calender,  Made out of the little Milk Carton Dies, and put in a 3D photo frame.
