I'm home again from the annual Stampin' Up Australia NZ Convention: Inspire. Create. Share 2014.
What a fabulous 4 days - jam packed with inspiration, ideas, new products, creative time and lashings of fun.
Want to share a bit of that? Here's instalment one of a wrap up of the event.
We kicked off on the Wednesday for the Leadership Day. Stampin' Up leaders were able to attend an afternoon of great training, then we jumped on the buses to head towards Myers. Yes Myers.
Here's how it got its' name - the room is filled with these murals of women throughout history.
What a great venue. One of the largest art deco style ball rooms in _______ (hmm Melbourne or Victoria or Australia, didn't catch the end of that sentence. Cool art deco room anyway!) Check out this stunning staircase.
If you're at a Stampin' Up event you are bound to be surrounded by beautiful flowers.
We each got a present, beautifully wrapped of course.
Inside was a lovely lace scarf and a lovely lovely lace background stamp from the upcoming new catalogue. (Officially realeased in July, get in touch now if you'd like a copy when my boxes arrive in June.)
We had a delicious meal and time to chat with our fellow demonstrators from all over Australia and New Zealand. Plus a great band and a dance.
Here's the wonderful group of managers and above from the team I belong to. What a great group - lovely to have so many of us here this year.
A stellar way to get energised ready for the official convention Day One.
Check back here tomorrow for some more Stampin' Up Convention 2014 snippets.
PS We had dessert too but I was too busy eating it to snap a pic. Mmm, mmmm. :-)
