More gift ideas

Hi Everyone,

These were some of the desktop sticky note pads I took to Craft Thyme at the start of the month. Whilst these didn't have their pens attached for their photos - naughty naughty! They did sell like hotcakes on the day! I was selling them as fast as I could attach the pens and I wish I'd taken more!! Still you just can't predict what will and won't sell...

The Glades Nov & December & Craft Thyme

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm sharing some pics from the Glades Markets from November and December and also a couple of pics from Craft Thyme.

The Glades in November

2 tubs of notepads made a great weight to stop the seabreeze blowing my stand over!

The "Other" Side of my stall - it was a bit different having 2 frontages!
Craft Thyme - Some of Andrea's goodies

Some of my goodies and a box of retired stamps of Andrea's

Andrea manning the stall - wish I'd come back to see everything gone lol :)
Craft Thyme is great as it's indoors!! We loved being inside the main hall, last time (June) we were located in the large foyer area which was a bit chilly but it did mean people walked past our stall on their way in and out. This time, the excitement for the day was providing by an evacuation of the South Perth Community Centre - the smoke alarms had been set off!! eek! Luckily we were all allowed back in about 20mins later to continue our day.

The Glades in December - almost forgot to take these pics!

And the rest of my goodies inc the plane my FIL made (which still needs a home)

And a few new Owls Magnets 

Thanks to all those involved arranging each event, esp Tammy and Mandi!!! I hope to continue having a stall at each of these events in 2012!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!!!

Notepads I've decorated

Hi Everyone,

The stationery fanatic in me loves decorating notepads as you may be able to tell from previous posts....

Here's a few I've done this year that I don't think I've shared...

These ones are A5 sized

Great for stocking stuffers! I've got a couple stashed aside for my girls stockings from Santa.

It's very bright under the big top today!

Hi Everyone,

Last week I made these cards from the Under the Big Top Stamp Set and co-ordinating Big Top Birthday Designer Series Paper.

Nice and bright aren't they! The colours are Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight (although I've used some So Saffron cardstock instead), Old Olive, and Whisper White.

I should be back with more updates this week and not be quite so quiet on the blogfront - well that's the plan anyway ;)

2012 Diaries

Hi Everyone,

Not long until Christmas and not long until 2012 begins! I still can't work out how the year takes soooooo long to pass when you are kid waiting for your birthday, school hols, or Christmas and yet as an adult, the most common thing you hear is related to how quickly the year is passing!

Anyway to help get us all organised, I thought I'd share some of the diaries I've been decorating:

1 week / view 

Great "handbag sized" diaries and if you would like one, they are $10 inc postage within Australia. Please email me to order.

In the Summer time....

Hi Everyone,

In the Summer time when the weather is fine, you can sit right down and do the blog hop!! In the Summertime, you've got stamping, you've got stamping on your mind....

The all new and very speccy Summer Mini Catalogue is released today and to celebrate 25 Stampin' Up! demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand have set up this blog hop for you via our little group called ESAD.

So, welcome to my part of the ESAD Blog hop, you may be starting here or you may have come from Jane Norrish's page...

The "official" blurb:
What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin Up demonstrators.

We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors, but we share our love for what we do with each other as demonstrators. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know-how, and cyberstamps, and we are always there to help and support each other when it is needed.

So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

Alright, here's my work:

Using the stocking punch I've made these 2 cards:

And using the new "Give a Gift" stamp set, I made this cute little gift set:

All wrapped up and ready for a new home via Santa
