NZSU Pics of the Week 16 April 2017

Hello Stampers, Firstly apologies that there was no post last Sunday, we have moved house and our internet hasn't been connected yet, so this week I have visited our eldest son's home to use their internet connection for this post.

A very exciting and inspirational week for those who attended "On Stage" and now the rest of us who can view the new Catty now. How long is your wish list?

Take a look at the "Onstage Display Stamper Artisan Blog hop" HERE beginning with our own Paula Dobson. 

Have a Fantastic week.

The end of "Sale-A-Bration has arrived, I hope that you have had a great time creating and sharing the free products, which are fabulous.
By now many of you will be looking forward to attending "On Stage", maybe finishing off swaps that you will be taking along to share with fellow demos. One thing is sure you will have a fantastic time, seeing great demonstrations, meeting up with old friends and meeting new ones.
Have a fantastic week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 26 March 2017

Wow! only 5 days left of Sale-a-Bration, how quickly we are getting through the year.

As many of you will have read, our NZSU Blog has been getting less and less views as people to turn to Facebook and other social Media sites for inspiration. To enable us to keep up with the times and reach more stampers, we are going to move to a Facebook group, around May this year. Delys Cram is going to set up and maintain the Facebook group and in her words "I can't remember who started the original blog, but I took a turn managing it early on, so it's a little bit exciting taking it back over and morphing it to Facebook!"
Thanks so much Delys you're a star.

Have a fantastic week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 12 March 2017

Calling out to all NZ Demos, I'd love to hear from anyone who would like to take over the administration of this blog and move it to a Facebook page instead. We are generating very few views on the blog in comparison to previous years and I believe it is time to move to another platform to be advantageous to all NZ demos. The FB page needs to be viewed by the general population but only allow NZ Stampin' Up demos to post to the page. The ability to add a link to your creation will help drive stampers to your individual sites. You can contact me by email at
Have a fantastic week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 19 Feb 2017

It's been a ruggard week here in Christchurch with the fires on the Port Hills, a big shout out to all the firefighters and pilots who worked so hard throughout the week and many who are still fighting to control the hot spots. Our deepest sympathy to Steve Askin's family who lost his life while fighting the fires. Without all of these people the outcome would have been much worse.

On a much happier note let me direct you to the Artisan Blog Hop HERE starting with our very own Paula Dobson, such fabulous work from all the Artisan's as always.

Hi, this weekend we are in Auckland for our Grand-daughter's first birthday, we have 3 sons, 5 grandsons and one grand-daughter and Bella is the only grand-child that lives in Auckland, so the rest of the family are always trying to convince her parents that they need to move to Christchurch as well. So far no luck but we'll keep trying.

This week I want to point you to the Artisan's Blog Hop starting HERE this blog hop is really special so take the time to view these great creations.

Have a fantastic week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 22 Jan 2017

Hi De Ho Stampers, posting this week from Melbourne again, I'd like to take this opportunity to send our thoughts and prayers to everyone in Melbourne affected by the shocking Massacre in the city.

Today it's 35 degrees so we're inside with the air-con giving us relief. Unfortunately I have managed to pick up a nasty cold that has turned into a chest infection, but I've started antibiotics today so should be on the up and up from now on.

Have a look at the Caseing the Catty blog hop HERE always so inspiring!

Have a fantastic week.
