NZSU Pics of the Week 11 January 2015

An exciting week for Stampin' Up demonstrators and customers, it's always a fabulous way to start the stamping year; Sale-A-Bration and the new "Occasions" Catalogue. Both these promotions have surpassed themselves again this year, I don't know how Stampin' Up keep doing it! 

I'm in Melbourne for the next three weeks, it is my sister's 60th Birthday today and although she is in hospital having just has a hip replacement we are heading up to the hospital shortly to give her a little party; her husband my nieces and nephews and great niece as well as her dear friend who also traveled over from NZ, will all be dancing attendance around her bedside this afternoon. 

Have a fantastic inky week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 4th Jan 2015

I hope you are all enjoying the holidays and the great weather. We have had a busy time with the last of our visitors leaving this Tuesday. We've had a wonderful time with family, especially as our youngest grandson and his dad were here from Christchurch for a week. 
Hopefully now I will have time this week to place an order and get some of the new exciting products.
Enjoy your week, Happy Stamping.

Happy Hogmanay to all. I hope 2014 had more high points than low points for you. 2015 promises to be another exciting year with Stampin' Up, it's wonderful to be a part of such a great community of paper crafters. 

A huge thanks to everyone who has linked their blogs to the NZSU blog and generously contributed posts throughout the year, sharing their projects and ideas.

Enjoy the holidays with family and friends and keep safe.

NZSU Pics of the Week 21 Dec 2014

I am writing this from Miranda park, which is about an hour south of Auckland.  Three of my Grandsons and I are spending 3 nights here before Christmas day, it gives their parents a break and hopefully gives the boys something else to focus on besides Christmas day and the thought of what presents they may be getting. So far today I have been beaten in trivial pursuit, connect four and dominoes.
I hope you are all nearly finished with your Christmas planning and ready to enjoy the Christmas and New Year holidays with family and friends.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all who have contributed to our NZSU Stampin' Up blog this year, it's a fabulous resource for many crafters.
I wish each of you and yours a great Christmas and a wonderful 2015.

NZSU Pics of the Week 14 Dec 2014

Oh oh!! only 11 Days to go I hope you're on the way to ticking off everything on your list. Last Night I was lucky enough to have the time to wrap most of my Christmas presents. I need to be organised, as will many of you as well, with the school holidays about to begin. I have 3 grandsons in Auckland that I care for after school and during the holidays and next Sunday I'm taking them away for 3 days before Christmas, it helps to keep them busy before the "Big Day"
In this weeks post I have included the work of a guest artist; "Miss 4 Year old Wong", check out her project in the centre of the 2nd Row.
Have a super week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 7 Dec 2014

Hi, this week I have managed to write out all of my Christmas cards, make three notebooks and chocolate boxes for my grandsons teachers. I've also done quite a bit of Christmas shopping as well as shop for my husband and youngest son's birthday's which they both celebrate on the 9th December, all in all a busy, but very enjoyable week. I hope you are all enjoying the build up to Christmas without too much stress. 
Have an awesome week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 30 Nov 2014

Only 25 days to go!! How did that happen? I've got the decorations out and will start putting the tree up and decorating tomorrow after I've picked my grandsons up from school, they love dressing the tree. I've made up the wee advent boxes for them, but I might have to buy some more chocolates to put in them tomorrow, it's just possible I may have eaten a few over the weekend, "oops!"

It is time to start asking if anyone would like to take on the administration of our NZSU blog next year, flick me an email if you're keen.

Have a fabulous week everyone.
