Yes, I’m still here (sorry, I know I say that a lot after long blog “holidays”!). Since we went to Convention at the end of May I’ve been frantically busy preparing for the launch of the new catalogue and the SENZ show which is on this weekend at the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau! This is my home turf which is just as well as I couldn’t fit all the tables and displays into the car in one load, so was glad I didn’t have to drive far to get everything else!
Here’s a peek at our stand which Karen, Rosie and I set up today. They are in the third photo looking very happy as we’d just finally finished setting it up the way we wanted it and we were pretty pleased with ourselves! As you may know, I love MDS and hence that has become a feature of our stand! But I did a lot of hand-created stuff too – if you can spot the “clock” on our stand wall, I die cut the backgrounds for the numbers out of our Subtles colour range plus a couple of fabulous new in-colors too. It was fun although by the end I was getting a bit tired of poking all the bits out of my doily die-cuts!
The show is open Friday to Sunday, it opens for pre-paid ticket holders from 9:30am or you can buy tickets at the door from 10am. It closes at 5pm on Friday and Saturday and 4pm on Sunday. You do need to come and visit us to see everything up close – it looks far better in real life than in these quick snapshots! I will be presenting “what’s new” from Stampin’ Up! each day at 11am in the Demonstrator Theatre area – which just happens to be right next to our stand.
We have some fabulous offers on our stand this year and there’s a big range of retired products from our collective craft rooms that you’ll love having a look through – come and get them while you can!
