Hi lovely ones. Thought you might like to see some pics from the #OnStage2016 local event in Sydney? Myself and 30+ of my team made the trip to Sydney which was fabulous (we love having fun at our events together). To me, Stampin' Up! events are a perfect opportunity to get away for some 'me' time, have fun with my demonstrator friends and of course I wouldn't miss the opportunity to see/get the new catalogues first and be there to support my team members.
I traveled up a day early this time. I've been super busy at work and home the last few months and decided a day's relax was on order. I grabbed myself a great new book at the airport, and settled in for a (short but lovely) relax in the beautiful sunshine above the clouds.
My relax day turned into a shopping day when I got to Sydney and realised I had left my whole makeup bag on the bathroom counter at home - OMG! So Friday I hit the shops, which was pretty easy to do from the event venue at the Hilton Sydney, as we had QVB building with Mecca on one side one side, and Pitt St with Sephora, David Jones and Myer on the other side! Of course I started the day with a very hearty breakfast (my fave away breaky, smoked salmon eggs benedict) and loved all the fresh juice places around to get my fave beetroot, carrot and celery juice. I loved the vibrancy and pace of being in the centre of Sydney.
After all that shopping and eating, it was back to my room to finish off wrapping my team gifts for tomorrow. I had premade the tags and packed everything, and despite a few hiccups with the broken stapler and no tape, I managed to secure them well with twine and Snail adhesive!
Friday night was CentreStage, which is the function for Silver Elite and above demonstrators. We were treated to a one hour leadership presentation by the lovely Brandi Barnard from the US office, and our while Sydney event was hosted by Rich Judkins, the company President who also flew in from the US. After the training, we were treated to a beautiful 3 course dinner. Stampin' Up! always make the table look so special.
We also received this cute denim daypack as a gift.
I loved chatting to my fellow demonstrators, staff and team friends at Centre Stage. It was a fabulous event and the food was amazing too! I felt very appreciated.
Then it was back to my room to get a good nights sleep before the big day ahead. I'll cover that in part 2, later today.
