Finished Natalie's Card

Fussy cutting done! Card complete. That Natalie is a talented one, very happy.

The Adelaide Trip

I have already posted a picture of my altered art piece designed by Jane Tregenza. But let me tell you about the rest of the trip.
Myself and Barbara arrived in Adelaide at about 9 in the morning on the Friday. Jane very Kindly collected us from the Airport and after a discussion we were dropped into town to have a look around. We browsed the Rundle Mall and posed with the pigs! Then caught the bus up Goodwood Road to Jane's store Seriously Scrapbooking. Once there we caught up with Jane who was busy finishing off the kits for Saturday's all day scrap. We stayed in store for the rest of the day, Jane gave us a tour of behind the scenes and where the production of the Imaginarium Designs takes place. We stayed through till the evenings scrap/crop held by Natalie all of the staff at the store were fantastically kind and kept us topped up with coffee (Thanks Cathy)! By the evening Barbara and I were so tired, hysteria had started to brew and we were giggly and probably a little strange......We could almost see through time!!!
After a bit of a sleep at Jane's house we were collected by Nat (we were still in our jim jams when she arrived!) and taken to the all day scrap. The classes that followed were a Beautiful Easel card by Nat, a stunning and quite girly layout by Steph, another Layout by Heather, and then the altered art piece by Jane. These awesome classes were taught to 85 of us!! The largest class/crop craft event I have ever been too. The food served inbetween the classes was worth going for alone, morning tea was more deserving of the tiltle high tea as it involed many tarts, slices, slices, brand snaps and petit fours. Lunch was equally delish Jane's Pumpkin soup and sausage rolls were the highlight with sandwiches, samosa's and quiches also. Everybody got a gift and a door prize, I was really pleased with mine a K&Co mini album kit.... which may have to be completed at some stage!
After that full on day, we got back to Jane's house to be introduced to Josh's new carpet pythons! The female is 7 ft long and a bit grumpy but very pretty. The vivarium was outside the room Barbara was staying in so many jokes were made about them eating her in the night! The rest of the evening was spent chatting till we realised we had to be at the airport for 8am, so bed and packing called.
Next day we were taken to the airport by Jane's hubby (thanks Malcom). Surprisingly after all of our purchases our baggage was ok. We scrapped the whole way home on the plane, even though space was a little tight and Barbara managed to empty the contents of her bag into the footspace of the row behind! Alpha stickers everywhere! I think the lady was quite bemused by it.
Hopefully we will be invited back for next year, I would love to make it a yearly jolly!

All day scrap with the team from Seriously Scrapbooking

Mini case, photo diorama, off the page project...designed by Jane is totally awesome. I am so happy with it.

Radical.....Brave......Stupid.......all of these

I have decided that operation muffin top must begin again in earnest, starting Monday! "Why the wait?" I hear you say, well I have to get Operation Tregenza out of the way first. Barbara and I jet off to foreign climates (Adelaide) Friday morning very early......did you know there is 5o'clock in the morning now! SNORT what will they think of next!

Anyway I will try and post some pictures whilst I am away, and certainly once I get back.

Once I return I will be getting into the swing of things get some classes up and running, recommence operation muffin top, organizing my house (read craft room), putting lots of items up for sale on Etsy etc

So Look forward to hearing from me soon!

Goodies have arrived

All those ladies that attended my first Stampin Up party last Sunday prepare to get excited!!!!


I will deliver them to Barbara this evening and she will distribute accordingly. 
Thank you for your business, Hope you had fun, look forward to seeing you all again soon

First Stampin' Up party

My first Stampin' Up party was a huge success. Everyone who attended had fun (I think), I certainly did even though it felt a bit like chaos at times. Met some lovely ladies who I had not met before! 
Those who decided to order now have some lovely products on the way! 

Barbara will get a fantastic haul, a hostess set and over $100 of freebies!
It was an amazing start to my new business!

Too strange not to blog about!

So I went over to TS14+ at Paddington to buy some very needed clothes, it was nearing closing time and I had found a few things to buy. The sales lady was on her own in the shop and asked if we could pay with cash as her eftpos had died! Well I was not going to be able to, so was faced with the option of returning tomorrow morning to pay and collect my purchases. The other shopper in the store also needed to pay with eftpos. The sales lady then phoned every other manager she could think of and was trying to get it working, somehow I got involved during this whole strange debacle. At this point I was then on the phone to one of the other managers trying to establish how to disconnect the eftpos terminal. We decided to "power cycle" the whole system (turn it off and on again). Which was ok but then the NAB terminal wanted a sign on, so we phoned NAB and they talked me through how to get the terminal to sign on! So after I had fixed their computer issues I made my purchases and came home!

Busy weekend

Today I am off to a "Christmas in July" at my Local scrapbook store. I know we are gonna start making some Christmas cards but don't know what else is happening as it is a 5 hour class.
Tomorrow I am running my first Stampin'Up make and take/demo/party. I am prepared but a little nervous. The make and take features the baroque motifs stamp set, and uses the owl punch. I will post up some piccy's soon

First Item added to Etsy!!

Ok... it is a little bit of a cop out because it is a card kit that I made up that was already designed, die cut etc. All I had to do was put it all together and add glue! But I really didn't know what to do with it and it seemed like such a waste.
I have also added another widget to the sidebar to display mine and Barbara's items for sale in our Etsy Store. The Widget lives to the left of this post and down the page some. Go on have a look! Our Store is called BublTree and is a conglomeration of Funkibubl and Barbara's love of Tree Frogs.
Keep your eyes peeled cos there are lots of goodies to come............
