I'll be at the Make It Show this weekend :)

Well, a last minute decision has left me run off my feet over the last few weeks and to add madness to the chaos, myself and some of my Stampin' Up! team have a stand at the Make It Show at Farnborough this weekend - why don't you come and join us?

We'll have free Make and Takes, Demonstrations and all sorts going on, so why not come and have some fun?

Here is the lowdown on the show.....

Make it 2010, the biggest exhibition for crafters in the South, is a ‘must attend’ event for keen crafters of all abilities. Taking place on 26, 27 and 28 February at FIVE, Farnborough Airport, the show will be literally brimming with the latest inspirational craft innovations and everything you need to spring into crafting action.

Make it regularly attracts the top names in the craft world and thousands of enthusiastic visitors and the 2010 show will be no exception. This event presents crafters with the perfect opportunity to see all their favourite brands and exhibitors (and lots of new ones) in one place, at one time. Experts will be on hand to demonstrate brand new techniques and offer specialist advice on how to get started. Total beginners and the most dedicated and experienced crafters will be astounded at the breathtaking array of craft materials and supplies on display and on sale. Thousands of papercraft, bead craft and hobby craft supplies, kits and materials, free exhibitor demos, make ‘n’ takes and a fabulous line up of cardmaking and beading workshops complete the all-action line up at Farnborough in February.

For more details and to order tickets online please visit or call the ticket hotline on 08444 771000 (a small booking fee applies).

Once the chaos of this week is over, I promise to return to the real world and catch up on all the gossip and those PRIZE DRAWS - I still haven't forgotten, I promise....

Do you love Stampin' Up! Products?

Best Deal of 2010
You must act fast - this offer only lasts until 28 February 2010

If you have been thinking of ways to save yourself some money or make yourself some money, why not become part of my Stampin' Stars group?

I love being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and there are all sorts of Demos making their Stampin' Up! businesses suit their lives, needs and wants.

Have a look below to find out what kind of Demonstrator you could be...

Here is my offer to you:

£350 of Stampin' Up! products
for JUST £139

The Starter Kit of your choice
ONE FREE Stamp Set of your choice from Stampin' Up!
ONE FREE Stamp Set of your choice from ME
TWO FREE Sale-a-Bration Sets of your choice from ME

(but only if you sign up before the end of February. This offer WLL NOT be repeated again in 2010 and there is NO CATCH, I promise).

What kind of Demonstrator will you be?

Whether you want to purchase your own stamping supplies at a discount, earn some extra money from your hobby, or to build a business, Stampin' Up! provides you with the opportunity to reach your goals.


You like the idea of buying stamps and supplies for your personal use at a 20% discount and occasionally selling to neighbours, relatives, friends etc.


You work hard for a short period of time or season to earn a specific amount of money or to achieve a specific goal, and then you maintain minimum orders and sales during the rest of the year.


You love doing workshops and earning extra money when it is convenient. You work alot some months and very little other months. You will do workshops if they are easy to book, and maybe have a regular group that meets together once a month. You enjoy the rewards that being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator brings, but you don't plan to make Stampin' Up! a career.


You view Stampin' Up! as a viable business with long-term career potential. You pursue a management role, and you want to continue moving up with your Stampin' Up! career. You love attending Stampin' Up! events and have close relationships with other demonstrators. You work at your business in a consistent and outgoing manner.

As you can see, this is a fun, flexible business you can build to suit your individual needs and goals.

Not feeling well :(

Well, I think it is all finally catching up with me.

Not feeling well :(  Feeling like I've drunk too much and about to be bleurgh - the joys of an ear problem says the Doc.  Gotta get better though, it's the Love You Much Class tomorrow night and a 5 cards for £5 workshop on Thursday night.

Off to bed in a mo, but just wanted you all to know that I haven't forgotten about you or my CHA giveaway :)

Back to normal duty soon.

Rush, rush, rush

I am sure that February is just going to go past in a whirlwind.  Life is sooooo hectic at the moment.

I do promise that I will be doing my CHA giveaway when I get 5 minutes to photograph it all for you.  There is definately some lusciousness there but you will have to wait for it unfortunately, but not too long!

Above is a photo of my first class with Stamp With Us New Year!  We are already having great fun over there and there are three lovely classes already up!  You can still join us though if you want to receive 10 classes for just £1.50 each, not including all the fun, chat, challenges, videos and othe fun that we are having!

I am also busy getting prepared for our Stamp With Us Retreat next month, Scrappers Paradise in April and not to mention that I've just taken a stand at the Make It Show in Farnborough at the end of this month - arrrghhh!

So many things, so little time and there is also other things going on too but I just can't share them just yet, but it's all FUN, FUN, FUN!!

Speak soon,

I am here - honest!

Well, what a whirlwind since I've been home!

Friday, I spent most of the day at the hospital getting my foot X-Rayed only to find out it's not fractured or anything that you can see :)  I feel such a fraud!  Doctor said sometimes hairline fractures don't show until four weeks after they happen, or they sometimes can't be viewed on an X-Ray or it's ligament / muscle damage - whatever it is, it still hurts - lots.  But Ibruprofen and a bit of rest and that's all I can do!

Saturday was spent with some of my Stampin' Stars team.  Once every couple of months, my team get together to have fun, inspire each other, learn a few business basics and have some fun stamping and playing :) !

Sunday - the Stamp With Us online classes went live for the New Year.  We are back again at for another two weeks of videos, classes, live chat, challenges and a whole lot of fun!  If you love Stampin' Up! products, you won't want to miss this and it's only £15.  Go to and click the Paypal link in the top right hand corner and you can come and join the fun!

Monday, it was back to work (boo!) which was hard after over a week off.  Damon also started his new job which he has said is just like "returning home!".  For those of you who don't know, Damon and I ran our own courier franchise for a long time and he is now back doing sales for another courier company.  I really hope this works out for him, he deserves some job stability in his life after the last few years.  Always nice to see your man in a posh suit every day too :)

Today is my day off and I've been catching up on "stuff" and preparing my online class which goes live tomorrow - I love it and will be back tomorrow with a little sneak peek of what it is.

Tomorrow it's back to work again, followed by the Trendy Trees Class tomorrow night.  A packed week this week and again next week.  Whenever I think things are going to calm down, they just keep on going....why is that?

Anyway, still got some stuff to do tonight, but I will definately be back with pictures tomorrow for you.
