I had a wonderful time at the local Stampin' Up! Onstage 2017 event. There were sneak peaks of some amazing new products that will be available in the new Occasions Catalogue. There was business training, demonstrator acknowledgements, make and takes, lots of free products, technique and card making demonstrations, sharing with a very friendly group of people, lunch and more. There are two conferences next year. If you would like to attend one, contact me. You'll find a contact form on http://phillips.stampinup.net
I was one of four display stampers, which was a great honour. Here I am standing beside the cards I created with some of the products which will be available in the upcoming catalogue.
In January I joined up as a Stampin' Up! independent demonstrator and since then, I've been so busy with this new handcraft interest (see facebook.com/cardsRfun), that I haven't posted here as much as I was going to. I've put links to my other blogs above.
I'm now holding two workshops a month and attending a variety of related events. I've held stalls at a carnival and garage sale and sold some of my work online.
I've met a lot of lovely ladies and am enjoying the journey. If you need any crafting materials, or want to go to any events, check out my events or online store: phillips.stampinup.net
I felt like writing again two weeks ago, so began finishing off an illustrated teen novel I started in 2006. It only took me one week to write it and add some more illustrations. Editing is taking longer as I make a few changes and add a few chapters. I have now finished and printed off the first draft. I think it will be part of a series and I have already started writing and thinking about the second book. This is one of the illustrations for the first book. I think it gives an overview of the story.
