Stampin' Up! Third Anniversary 19th January

Hello, just a quick post from me today as I am still on a mission to tidy up my craft room at the moment.  After a quick look back at my 2nd Anniversary post, nothing has changed, my craft room is still a work in progress!

I can't believe how quickly the last three years have flown by since I decided to join Stampin' Up!

Some of you may know that I initially signed up for the discounts  but then I quickly realised that I wanted to share my passion for crafting with others.

I still chat regularly to a lovely lady called Michelle who is a SU Demonstrator in Germany.  We chat fairly regularly online to share tips etc and it was lovely to finally meet last year.

I held my popular catalogue launch party and BOGOF sale in June - (lots of you took advantage of the special offers available) and a Christmas Project Day in November which was great fun.

I was lucky enough to be able to attend On Stage 2017 in Birmingham and I was amazed to discover that I was to be recognised for my achievements during the last SU year.

One of the highlights of 2017 was being asked to do weekly craft sessions at a local care home.  The sessions are so rewarding and it has been lovely seeing the ladies who craft with me each week grow in confidence and take such pleasure from their creations.

This is Zena - each week she waits in Reception (with a coffee) after breakfast until I arrive.  She is becoming quite an accomplished crafter!

There have been a few changes this year to the format of my Coffee & Card sessions which seem to have been well received.  I have had lots of lovely new crafters join me recently too!

I have a small but growing team of seven lovely ladies (Bev, Annie, Sue, Wendy, Rosie, Karen and Lesley) who have decided to join Stampin' Up! with me - together they are called the ducklings!  Karen and Lesley joined us this month joining during Sale-a-Bration; it is truly the best time of the year to join.  For just £99 you can choose items to the value of £130 (with free delivery) and during SAB you can also choose any two additional stamp sets for free too! If you are interested in joining us do please get in touch.  Alternatively, you can find further details here.

As a way of saying thank you - everyone who places an order with me or attends a workshop in January will receive a raffle ticket with their thank you cards.  I will draw a winner at the beginning of February - the lucky winner will win this lovely stamp set - Fruit Basket.

This versatile stamp set could well be making an appearance at a C & C session soon!

Once again, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attends my classes, those who purchase Stampin' Up! goodies from me, visits my Blog and supports me with my Stampin' Up! business - it is much appreciated.

I have lots of exciting things planned for 2018, and am looking forward to lots of crafty fun!
