NZSU Pics of the Week 4th October 2015

Well it's great to be home again in our wonderful country, how blessed we are to live here. Our gardens have grown so much in the last month, thanks to the spring weather. What a shame it hasn't been so fine over the weekend, hopefully it will fine up for the 2nd week of the school holidays. For those of you who held special events for World card making day yesterday, I hope they were a resounding success for you and your guests.
Have an awesome week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 27 Sept 2015

Well this is the last post I will posting from the USA, we are now in Washington DC, which I love and will be back in NZ early on the 30th September. It means I haven't done any crafting for a month, that must be the longest time I have been away from stamping for about 4 years! I definitely struggled with New York, so many people and it was very hot while we were there which didn't help. I look forward to some peaceful creating when we get settled into our home again.

Big apologies to Kathryn Tyrrell for crediting her creation last week to Sally Robertson and many thanks to Sally for emailing me so I could correct my mistake.
Have an awesome week.

What amazing projects have been posted this week, it's really inspiring to see so many fabulous designs. 
We are still in the USA this morning we left the cruise ship and flew from New York City to Charlotte, North Carolina so we could go to the drag racing here tomorrow.
Have a fantastic week everyone.

NZSU Pics of the Week 13 September 2015

Thankfully I am able to write this post in a very moderate temperature, after 4 extremely hot days in New York City, we are aboard the ship "Liberty of the Sea" presently cruising from Portland, Maine towards Bar Harbour, Canada. The ship is beautiful and we are having a wonderful time, we are travelling with 2 other couples enjoying lots of laughs.

I'm sure many of you thoroughly enjoyed your Team Training with Jacque Williams this weekend and came away re-energised and armed with some useful tips.

Have a Great week everyone.

NZSU Pics of the Week 6 September 2015

Happy Fathers Day to all NZ Dads. Here are some lovely Cards the Palmer Children made for their Dad.The Palmers

Pics of the Week
I'm writing this blog post from the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco, we arrived here on Thursday afternoon, a little weary after a 12 hour flight. The weather has been magnificent , it is still Saturday here and tomorrow is Sunday and we will leave for New York in the morning. Next Sunday's post may be a problem as we will be part way through a 9 day cruise and previous experience cruising suggests that internet connection is not at all reliable, so please "bear with". 
Have a fabulous week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 30 August 2015

Hi Dee Ho Stampers, well it's started those Christmas cards are beginning to be posted! Where has this year gone? What an exciting Stampin Up year it's been so far and now we're all looking forward to the opportunity of attending the first "On Stage" event. If you haven't registered yet you should do, if the Stampin Up conventions are anything to go by, "On Stage" is going to be amazing, so awesome to be among so many like minded people and such fun.
As per my post last week, we will be away from this Thursday for 4 weeks, I will endeavor to post on time over this period but bear with me if my timing is a little out.
Have a great week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 23 August 2015

Is Spring nearly here? It's going to be a great weekend weather wise for most of New Zealand. I'm heading to Christchurch this weekend to visit our youngest Grandson and his Dad as well as my dear sister in-law. 
Brian and I are travelling overseas on the 3rd September returning to NZ on the 30th September, we are visiting the USA and Canada, so the NZSU Blog posts may be a little late sometimes. Most of the hotels we are staying at have Wifi, however we are on a 9 night cruise into Canada which may prove a little challenging, last year we experienced only limited internet connection while on a cruise. So apologies in advance, I will keep in touch as best I can over this time.
Have a fantastic week.

What a beautiful day we've had here in Auckland, the sun has been shining all day, a great relief after a lot of rain this week.
Congratulations go to Mary Reeve and Jacque Williams,  as well I'm sure a lot of help from Robert Williams, for hosting an amazing "Extravaganza" in Napier this weekend.
Have a fantastic week everyone.

NZSU Pics of the Week 9th August 2015

Hi, I'm guessing many of you are waiting with baited breath for your SU "brown boxes" to arrive and some may have already received their pre-orders. The Holiday Catalogue is filled with such great products that like many others I found it difficult to choose what to order first. I really enjoy Christmas, so I'm very excited about the Christmas products that I've ordered, which should be arriving in the next couple of days.
Marilyn Meadows one of our fellow demonstrators has been travelling in the USA and has been posting some of her experiences on her Blog, this week she posted a photo of herself at the Stampin' Up Convention in Salt Lake City, how awesome is that?
Have a fantastic week everyone.
