NZSU Pics of the Week 31 Jan 2016

Unbelievable, here we are at the end of the first month of 2016 already. For those of you with school age children you will be busy getting everything ready for the new school year, new shoes, uniforms, stationary and haircuts etc

I'm guessing many of you will have started creating Valentine cards for family and friends to give to their loved ones the new "Bloomin Love" bundle is awesome for these cards and I'm looking forward to seeing your posts.

Have a great week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 24 Jan 2016

I'm loving that so many creations are being posted at the moment, there has certainly been an increase of posts since the new Occasions Catty and Sale-A-Bration have been released. In previous years January has traditionally been a quiet month in terms of posts however January 2016 has been busy. I believe this is a direct result of the fabulous new products which have inspired so many of us.
Have an awesome week.

Hi de Ho Stampers, what an exciting week for us all, with the beginning of Sale-A-Bration and the new Occasions Catalogue, I think that I'll be spending quite a lot this quarter, I love everything that is on offer. What about those new "Wink of Stella" brushes, how did I ever craft without one? It's always so exciting to see all the creations when new product is released, just love it. Keep up the good work! 
Have a fantastic week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 27 Dec 2015

I hope you all had a great Christmas day with family and friends, our house was mayhem with 29 for Christmas dinner. Fortunately for me, my husband and daughter in-law love to cook, so there was no room for me in the kitchen until clean up time.
For the next week I am holidaying at Waihi beach with some of our family, which we are all looking forward to, lets hope the weather stays fine.
The 2016 Stampin' Up year is off to a great start with the new occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration.
My very best wishes for a Happy New Year to you and Yours.

NZSU Pics of the Week 13 Dec 2015

Hi De Ho Stampers, many of you will have been busy this week with end of year school and work functions, with still more to come no doubt. I've been busy creating teachers gifts for my grandsons whom seem to have more than one teacher each these days, however the teachers are always appreciative knowing that time and thought have gone into the gifts they receive.
This week I was thinking it was time I checked out how to make the NZSU Blog mobile friendly, I found it was very easy as "Blogger" had an option within their program to sort it out. I hope that you find it a little easier to access on your phones now.
Have a great week and be careful out there in the busy pre Christmas whirl.

NZSU Pics of the Week 6 Dec 2015

Oh my goodness 19 days to go!! Every year seems to go faster than the last or is that just me getting older? It's obvious that everyone is getting busy, as this past week saw a lot fewer posts than usual. 
One of our delightful grandsons assembled our Christmas tree and dressed it, insisting he could do it by himself this year, he's eight. It was a big effort for both of us, for him because it's quite a big tree and for me to keep my hands and advice to myself. However we both did remarkably well!
Enjoy your week and stay sane.
