NZSU Pics of the Week 28 Dec 2014

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.
