Oh what a night..!

Morning all!

Yesterday was the Manchester training provided by Stampin' Up! and 5 of us from Liverpool set off on our road trip with Keren kindly driving.

This is partly the reason why I haven't been updating my blog as much as I'd have liked to - myself and Keren were asked to prepare a project and demonstrate it in front of the other 40 or so demonstrators... eeek!

Here is Keren doing a brilliant job, her card was just gorgeous !


I've been preparing and practising for weeks and as it's been getting closer I was getting more and more nervous... but it's good to move out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself and in the end I really enjoyed it (once my part was over with haha!)

As a demonstrator, I never pass up the opportunity to do swaps (which are basically samples made by other demo's which you 'swap' to exchange ideas and techniques) and yesterday was no exception. The swaps I received were absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to show you them.

Linda (from my team) was sooo funny, every time someone arrived she would get giddy and shout 'swaps!' at them hehe, you made my night Linda :) !


I'd just like to give a shout out to the newest member of my team - Vicki!
Sorry you weren't there last night but there will be plenty of time for more events.

Last night got me really excited for convention, I need to get cracking on my swaps now... think there are 185-ish from the UK alone !

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.

Hi Nicci, glad it all went well. As you say nerve-wracking to begin with. Look forward to seeing the swaps
