NZSU Pics of the Week 1 May 2016

Well here we are in May, the 5th month of the year, how swiftly the time has flown this year. or is it I'm just getting older? My apologies once more for the delay in publishing this post, I am still travelling between two cities and sometimes my lap top is not in the same place as I am.
An exciting week for new creations on a lot of "Blog Hops' so find a quiet moment and get a coffee and have a look.
Have a fantastic week.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; 

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. 
At the going down of the sun and in the morning 
We will remember them."

NZSU Pics of the Week 27 March 2016

I hope you have enjoyed Easter Weekend with Family and friends. I've been in Christchurch for the past couple of weeks helping out with our newest grandchild and took a couple of days out to accompany two of our other grandsons up to Auckland for a couple of days over the weekend, so it's been a busy family time for me. 

Wonderful news this week to learn that Sara has been appointed as the permanent CEO of Stampin' Up, I know that many of you have enjoyed the past year with Sara heading Stampin' Up as have I and it's wonderful to have Shelli back with us again, what a great team!

The excitement is building as we get closer to "On Stage" there is always something to look forward to with Stampin' Up.

Have a fabulous week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 20 March 2016

Firstly apologies for not posting this blog on Sunday night, I was flying back from Melbourne and forgot to schedule the post for Sunday night. It's been a very busy time for me, spending a week in Melbourne with my sister who is chronically ill and housebound and returning to Christchurch to spend time helping out with our newest Grandson who is only 8 days old today. 
I'm guessing you have all been very busy with the end of Sale-A-Bration coming to an end and what a wonderful array of products we've had to choose from this year, "Stampin' Up" just keeps coming up trumps.
Have a wonderful week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 13 March 2016

Hello everyone, have you had a good week? While I was typing the date for this post, it occurred to me that this year is indeed "marching" along very quickly. The old adage "the older you get the faster it goes" comes to mind eek I hope it doesn't get any faster for me.

Our family welcomed our fifth grandson into the world early this morning, we are truly blessed to now have six grandchildren to love.

I've had some fun this week playing with the Easter Lamb stamp set, this stamp is so versatile and very cute, loving it, hoping to see some posted from all of you.

Have a terrific week.
