Pics of the Week 27 January 2014

I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend, here in Auckland we celebrate Anniversary day this Monday so we still have an extra day to enjoy.

This week I received a pre-order from "Stampin Up" which included Watercolor Wonder designer cards, I normally don't go for card kits, however these base cards are absolutely beautiful, (the card stock is fabulous quality), giving you the option to add embellishments, stamps or whatever else you might choose to add. There are 20 cards and envelopes in a pack for $27.95, making it very cost effective and could be a great way to introduce new stampers to card making.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy the last week of the school holidays, if you have children or grandchildren.

Sunday 19 January - Pics of the week delayed


We have been in Melbourne since Monday this week experiencing the extreme temperatures of up to 44 degrees, thank goodness for air conditioning! My husband, Brian has spent three days at the Australian Open as he has done for at least the last six years and luckily enjoys the hot weather.

I placed my pre-order before we left for Australia, so I can't wait to start trying out the new products, I have already seen some of the wonderful projects fellow demo's have created, it's always so exciting to get a new range of products.
Unfortunately the computer I'm using in Melbourne doesn't have a program to enable me to showcase the "Pics of the week" so I will post them on Tuesday 21st Jan my apologies for the delay.

Have a good week and hopefully find some time for crafting.

Pics of the week

Thanks to everyone who has found the time to blog this week, many are still on holiday or in holiday mode and haven't had the opportunity to craft. 

How many have placed pre-orders yet? I've had my 4 grandsons for the last week so no time to place an order or indeed do any crafting, but I'm hoping to place an order tonight.

Brian and I are off to Melbourne tomorrow until the 21st Jan, Brian loves going to the Australian Open while I visit with my sister (who is a hobby demo), she and I will manage to do some crafting while I'm there.

Don't forget to use the Pic of the week logo if your project is chosen, it is featured on the left hand side of this blog.

1st Blog for 2014

Happy 2014 one and all.

I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful and safe Christmas and New Year with family and friends.

We have had a lot family staying with us since before Christmas, my Mother-In-Law and her partner will be the last to leave on Monday, so it has been a very busy household with much laughter and fun over the last couple of weeks. 

This is my first post as the NZSU administrator and because I am not as skilled in this area as Callena, I hope you will be patient with me as I become more acquainted with the role.

My husband gave me a combined birthday and Christmas present; a beautiful custom made unit and desk for my craft room, each time I walk into the room it puts a smile on my face, I still have a little work to finish setting it up but I will post a photo of it as it is now.

Please flick me an email if there is anything you would like to see added to the NZSU Blog or if I have ommited to do something that should have been included.

Now onto the first pics for 2014. As there haven't been many posts over the last week I have chosen 6 this week.
