Update and an observation ....

What to say, what to say .....

Had no idea what to title this post with but felt the need to say SOMETHING!

The last 3 days have been a total whirlwind with the Stampin' Up! Convention which has left me feeling so appreciated in the blogging world. Those people that came up to me and introduced themselves and talked about Josh and also how much you loved (and missed) my blog and seeing my creations, was so appreciated and special. Thankyou!

I do still miss blogging and I will definitely be starting some posts again soon. I just miss creating and sharing and participating in some challenges. I am feeling inspired and motivated and have a thousand ideas running around in my head, but need to unpack and spend some time with the boys and come down to earth!

I was incredibly proud to have my achievements recognised at Convention last night.To be awarded the Number 1 Australian Demonstrator of the Year just blew my mind. It was very exciting to see friends and people I have got to know so well (and some lovely new faces) being awarded as well. Sometimes the clapping and wooping is as much fun as the walking because you know how much we all love what we do.

The Art with Heart girls had a fabulous night with Sue Madex named number 15 in Demonstrator of the Year and Miriam Thomas to win the Rising Star award for best new demonstrator. We also had lots of girls recognised for sales and recruiting. I also was named number 2 for recruiting and number 1 in the Leadership category, thank to my fab team. I was given beautiful Burberry bag and also a Burberry necklace - both just stunning and something I would never buy myself. I feel like I have a little bit of Shelli in my wardrobe now!

Something very special to many of us that have been on the receiving end of her unconditional love and support, is to have been there to watch Jayne Mercer receive the Heart of Stampin' Up! award. So richly deserved by a truly wonderful person. 

I learnt some great new stuff and received some beautiful swaps at Comvention. I'll be back at some stage soon to give you more news and photos - but just wanted to say how proud and thrilled I was :) I've been contacted by so many people today, and it meant so much to me to hear / read your lovely messages. Thankyou so much :) Thanks also to Shelli, Aaron, Emma and all the fab staff in Australia and the US for an amazing and inspiring few days.
