Apologies for not posting much in the past 2 months, no excuses except having so much on & even though I'm still keeping busy, I'm getting back into the swing of all things related to my stamping. Classes resume this Wednesday & I have scheduled & started prepping for a day of stamping in Sydney on the 13th February, more on that below but first I want to thank my family & friends for their concern about our well being, thankfully we were not directly affected by the floods that have devastated so many in Queensland, we have never been so scared or imagined it would be as catastrophic or even thought about what the aftermath would bring to Queensland & other states in Australia. Time will heal as they say & life must go on, this seems impossible for some, those that have lost everything, particularly loved ones. As I watch (I can't anymore) the TV reporting/interviewing & even seeing some the devastation with my own eyes has made my heartache & my thoughts & prayers constantly go out to all affected. Many of us are helping, physically, financially, mentally, whatever the way, every little bit helps & this will help speed up the recovery & clean up the unbelievable mess.
Today I proudly read that Stampin' Up! are donating $2 from the sale of any Stamp Set (over $30 value) to Queenslands State Emergency Services, this will run until the 15th February. These dates coincide with SAB so we can expect this effort to raise funds much more substantial as Stampin' Up! give away free stamp sets for $100 spends.
I have with much thought decided to go ahead with a full day of stamping on the 13th February in Sydney, details are posted on my demonstrator website in calendar of events, I do hope you can join me on this day as I raise as much funds as possible, I really want this to be successful so I will be donating all the profits made on the day & 10% of my sales from now until then. If you can't afford to attend just yet, email me & I would be happy to arrange a payment plan for you, I will be raffling off lots of Stampin' Up! products, all my surplus products & products that Stampin' Up! have kindly donated. All your make-n-takes for the day will be prepared along with meals & lucky door prize entry's.
If you RSVP before the 5th February you will receive an extra lucky door prize entry.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Stampin' Up! have a sweet little treat on at the moment & apart from Valentines day wishes, this set can be used for sending a note of thoughts & prayers & heartfelt thanks;
Purchase the Sweetheart Stamp set (woodmount or clear mount) or the the Full Heart Punch and receive a pack of 12 Treat Heart Cups and when you buy the Sweetheart Stamp Set and the matching punch you receive two packs of the Treat Heart Cups!
