After all the glitz and glamor I have enjoyed over the last week, reality has hit with a bang. I had a call this morning asking for a Sympathy Card to be made for a friend.
These are the hardest kinds of cards to do. I got my thinking cap on and came up with this card. Even though it is for a sad occasion, I am really pleased with it. I think it strikes the right cord, but still looks amazing. Can't get one of these in your ordinary card shop!
On a happier note, I see the Convention returning Demos are posting a host of pictures on the net for you all to oogle! I am going to keep it short and sweet. Here are a couple of highlights for me:
Bonnie Thurber is the Director of Demonstrator Training. She is incredibly talented and hugely funny! The poor women had to do a presentation to the entire gallery of Demo's with laryngitis! She pretty much had to whisper her whole presentation. Poor woman!
We had a lot of training both as lectures and demonstrations. Here is Jacque Pedersen (Auckland) running through her presentation. I don't know how she kept so calm, not only in front of a few hundred Demo's but also with the cameraman hanging over her shoulder! All the presenters were fantastic!
Jacque is also my Up-line. I live in Wellington and Jacque in Auckland, so it was fantastic to finally spend some fun and crafty time together! Jacque was also the 2010 Top New Zealand Demonstrator of the Year. Congratulations Jacque - we were all very proud of you!!
I also got to meet many of my team members, who I know well Cyberly, but had never met in person! It was great meeting you all and I can't wait til June to catch up in Auckland with you all again! We were so lucky and received so many goodies at Convention. Karen Rogers and Sally Williams are grinning from ear to ear over the stamp sets they won!!
