Unconvention 2009

Filed under: Stampin' Up! — maggie mathern @ 12:35 pm

I made the decision earlier in the year to not go to our annual Stampin’ Up! Convention.  I can’t believe how time has flown by and those that are going will be making their way to Canberra this coming Thursday.  I know that they will be in for a brilliant time of fun and fellowship.  They will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Stampin’ Up!  I can’t wait to hear all about it and girls/guys (yes, we have male demos) I wanna see pics!!!

One of the online groups I belong to have organised an event called “Unconvention” for those of us that will not be going to the main event.  We will also be having “Make n Take” projects, business tips, swaps etc and we get to do it staying at a luxury hotel aka “home” and will share our accommodation “virtually” with another demonstrator.  This is a fun way to get to know someone else.  I look forward to getting to know Caroline.  I’ll put a link to her blog when I find out the addy later.

Speaking of swaps, I better get my butt into gear.  Finally worked out what I am going to do.  Nothing like putting last minute pressure on myself LOL.  I will come back in the next few days to share some crafty stuff with you.  I better get cracking on making the swaps…all 20 of them!!!

A Bitterly Cold Day

Boy it is FREEZING here today.  Currently it is 8 C here in Geelong and very windy.  The best news is that I took 13 mm or rain out of the gauge yesterday, 6 mm this morning and it is raining again now.  We desperately need the rain, not only for our farms and gardens, but to put some water back into the catchments.  Fingers crossed this happens.

U Stamp

I am so excited to be joining Dawn Rapsas  (US Demo) and Heather Summer  (Canadian Demo) for another round of U Stamp.  I have met many other lovely demonstrators from around the world and gained lots of new ideas, information and learnt new techniques.  If you would like to participate too, please click on the blinkie on the right hand side of my blog for information on how you can join in the fun.
