On Stage Local - Telford
Hello! Something a little different for you today; I've been away this weekend in Telford for Stampin' Up!'s On Stage Local event, and I thought you might like to see some photos. Here we are, getting ready for things to start:
We always get the chance to see (and play with) upcoming new products, and as you might imagine, we all get just a leetle bit excited. Here is Jane, reacting to one particularly gorgeous new release:
Haha! Sorry for the annoying smiley face, cunningly placed over the forthcoming Spring / Summer catalogue, but I'm not allowed to show you any of the new stuff yet. I can promise you though, you'll be as chuffed with it as Jane was!
One of the great fun parts of the On Stage events is Prize Patrol, where brand new goodies are given away. Carol won a stamp set in the very first Prize Patrol of this event. My amazing camera skills make her look a bit nonplussed, don't you think? Oh my goodness, I WISH I could show you the stamp set she won - it's just bee-yoo-ti-ful...
And here's Jane, with another Prize Patrol prize. Again, apologies for the very frustrating smiley faces!
At the end of day, we were all absolutely shattered, but very excited and with heads buzzing with everything that we'd seen, learned and crafted. I can't wait to be able to show you more of what was shared at the event, but you're going to have to wait for a while for that, I'm afraid. It'll be worth it. Trust me. (*smiles knowingly*)
FInally, here I am, with some of my lovely team members, right at the end of the events yesterday (sadly minus the lovely Anne, who had to run hell-for-leather for her taxi as we'd overrun). I wanted to bring the big balloon back with me, but I didn't think I'd get away with it. We need to buy a bigger car...
The next On Stage event is in April, and we'll all be travelling over to Amsterdam for an even bigger event - On Stage Live. I can't wait! Events like these are one of the amazing things I get to share in as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, meeting with loads of lovely friends from all across the world. If you fancy the idea of seeing all the latest crafting products before they're available to the general public, and being part of an amazing group of people at the same time, then I'd love to hear from you. Drop me an email and we'll chat, if you like. It may be one of the best things you ever do.
Thanks for dropping by, and I'll be back soon! Have a great week. xx
