Are you free……

This coming Saturday I’m having a casual drop in day and if you ‘are free’ then why not drop by. Have a cuppa, some nibbles, browse my creations or just have a chat.

Hopefully you are all aware that the Summer Mini Catalogue ends on 31st March, along with Sale-A-Bration, and have placed any order for items you wanted. If not this will be your opportunity to see some more creations of mine using some products from the Summer Mini and to place those orders so you don’t miss out.

I will also have some ‘sneak peeks’ from the upcoming Autumn/Winter mini released on April 1st on display and you will be able to take home a copy of the catalogue for yourself. Seeing that Easter falls at the same time as the Mini’s release I’m holding off on my Launch till Saturday 24th April and will post more details on that over the next week.

There won’t be any Make & Takes for you to do on Saturday but I will be creating throughout the day and will be demoing the Big Shot for those that wish to see it in action.

I will also have a list of the Product Shares I will be running for the Autumn/Winter Mini, class dates & signups, and some other offers too.


When: Saturday 27th March

Where: 134 Frederick Street, Lalor Park NSW

Time: 10am – 3pm


So come along and say hello and of course you are welcome to bring a friend.

Now if you can’t make it and would like a copy of the Autumn/Winter Mini posted out to you just email me with your address and I’ll pop one in the post.

Bored Children???

I don’t know about you but I don’t often recall as a child saying I was bored. The few toys I had would keep me occupied and as I got older I would keep myself busy by reading, listening to music, playing with friends, having fun outside roller skating or playing at the park, knitting or some other craft.

Why is it that our children have so much more than we did but they can still come out with the “I’m bored” comment? Is it just me or do your children do this too?

Well I heard this comment from a few of my girls ( I have 4 of them) last Sunday so I gave them something to do.

Scrap punchies

Jayne Mercer posted a message on her blog on the 8th September about how she and some of her team have started volunteering at Play Therapists at Westmead Children’s Hospital. On her last visit one of the staff was punching out shapes for the children to use in their art activities. Jayne asked if they could use some punched shapes which of course the answer was YES so now Jayne has put the word out to readers of her blog and fellow demonstrators to see if they can also help with this.

So as you can see by the picture above my ‘BORED’ girls went to work with my scrap cardstock and some punches (both SU and some old Carl punches) and we ended up with this bag full of different shapes to donate. I did help too but most of them stayed at it and I think for the next 1 1/2 – 2 hours there were no bored comments.

If you can assist with this also it would be much appreciated I’m sure. You can either send your donation of punched shaped directly to Jayne (her address is in her post mentioned above) or you can forward them to myself and I will hand deliver them to Jayne on November 21st when I catch up with her at Stampin’ Up Regionals. If you would like to send them through to me my address is 134 Frederick Street, Lalor Park NSW 2147. If you are local then feel free to drop them off.

P.S. I will be selling off my Carl and non-SU punches at the next Giant Craft Sale on 24th October so if you are after some punch bargains be there early.


Happy Punching,
