September means spring, school holidays, footy finals and of course - our new Stampin' Up catalogues. And to kick them off in style a lovely group of ladies joined me over the last week for New Catalogue Launches.
My helpers (thanks sis and Miss 9) and I were busy, busy, busy for the last week or so getting everything ready.
Lots of paper chopping, goodie bag packing, project making and lollie bag filling to be done.
Inside the door there were catalogues and goodie bags to collect.
Including a yummy addition this year!
Lots of displays to browse before we gathered in the lounge room for a bit of a demonstration of a few new tools and other products.
A quick game of 'Heads Or Tails' delivered our first bunch of winners who chose an envelope or ribbon pack from the prize basket.
Then it was off to make a bookmark, complete our two make and take projects (I'll share those another day) and zip along the stations at the bench to try a few more stamps and a builder wheel.
And in between times we could have a cuppa, browse our catalogues, rearrange our wish lists and chat. We drew names from the cup over the evening for some lucky winners who chose a prize from the basket.
The ladies who placed an order at the launch all went in the draw for my Hostess Rewards Prize Draw. There were LOTS of winners so let's have a little drum roll and get listing ........

A big thank you to everyone who came along to one of the launches and helped create a lovely, friendly atmosphere. Hope you had fun trying out some new bits and pieces and checking out our new range of products.
If you missed it this year, keep an eye out next time we have a new catalogue and book your spot for launch night.
