Pre-convention - day 1 in Sydney

Hi all I'm back in NZ & have internet! Shock horror to arrive home last night to find I had no connection (hmm in the craziness of my life lately I hadn't paid the bill - lucky I didn't buy more than 2 pairs of shoes in Sydney & could sort it out pretty quickly today but saying that I have no e-mail service as it's Vodafone's turn to have problems).

Donna, Judy & myself flew in a few days early to acclimatise & relax before the meeting which is full on once it starts. And I just had to share these fabulous pictures of Darling Harbour at night!

Even our budget hotel doesn't look too shabby in the dark.

Now the biggest shock of the meeting was the fact that I was placed 7th in Demonstrator of the Year for 2010 especially when you saw the line up of the rest of the top 10 - what an honour!

So to celebrate this I'll be announcing a special offer in my June newsletter so if  you haven't signed up for my monthly newsletter do so ASAP as there's lots of exciting tidbits & specials coming up from Stampin' Up! too & I'd hate you to miss out.
