I survived my very first workshop as a StampinUp Demonstrator and it went really well. The ladies were so nice to me and being tupperware demonstrators themselves, knew about the nerves of a newbie, and treated me with kid gloves. Thanks so much for an awesome evening - I learnt heaps (ie. pack calculator!) and have loads of great ideas for the 4 workshops they booked with me! StampinUp have a sale on this month - buy $100 worth and receive a free stamp set - great month to start my workshops in!

Thanks to Katie, my upline, for getting me over the line (ie. lend apron!) - so very appreciated.

These are the cards I made for the workshop, very basic, but made a little splash so I'm happy.

And would you look at this butterfly - John and Jack had a moment together (while I was out) and they had a visit from this beautiful butterfly. It made me smile because I believe Charlie's spirit is a butterfly. And the orange and the blue were the same colours as the wrap Charlie was buried in.


PS. I wondered if writing about Charlie would make people feel too sad to visit again, but that is what happened to us and being open about it helps me to grieve and move on. I'm having trouble moving on but thanks to a great counsellor and a really great boss I will get better.

Congratulations on making the step to be a demonstrator. I'm sure you will be great. I'll have to book a workshop with you!
