Hello everyone, this post has been a long time coming but now I’m finally back from Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event and also half term break for the children and I’m ready to start blogging regularly again. I’ve been extremely busy with events both online and offline and so the blogging had to take a back seat for three weeks.
I’m extremely excited to share with you what I’ve been up to during these three weeks and will try and will reveal everything over the next couple of blog posts. Tom and I travelled up to attended Stampin’ Up! 6 monthly gathering called OnStage which was held in a large conference centre in Telford, UK. The venue is no stranger to 350 – 400 demonstrators ascending onto it, it’s definitely a wonderful place to hold a creative celebration.
On the Friday, the day before OnStage I had organised a craft afternoon that was for my team members and fellow demonstrators. The afternoon was all based around that fundamental thing that brings us into the Stampin’ Up! world, which is crafting. We just sat and chatted, laughed, crafted, ate and drank (tea & coffee that is!). It was so nice to have a few hours to ourselves, mix within teams and just have fun. Here are a few photos of what we got up to, aren’t we a happy bunch?
I’d hired the largest room in the building and everyone was wonderful pitching in with helping to organise the tables and chairs so we all had enough elbow room to craft. The food arrived shortly after we arrived and it was delicious, there was certainly enough to feed quite a few more of us!
After the crafting and eating we played a game of Bingo, which didn’t quite go to plan on my behalf but it was fun none the less and there were prizes too! I’d asked everyone to bring along some recent makes if they could and here are a few photos which I’d snapped a quick photo of.
What I love about this the most is every single one of us has a different style and yet I’m inspired and attracted to lots of the samples on display. It makes you eager to get home again and craft! That’s it from me today, I’ll be back tomorrow with more about OnStage with the Leadership gathering and also my Annual awards and achievements. (Wow… oh wow!)
