So much to share I don’t know where to start! After 2 days here in Sydney exploring, eating, retail therapy, eating, meeting up with other demos, eating – you get the picture – eating was a big part of it – we finally came to the exciting part – first day of convention. Arrived at the Sydney Convention centre along with approx 480 other demos at the (for me) ungodly hour of 7:00 am to register. Received our convention badges plus a large bag (you can see a couple in the pictures below) with 2 new stamp sets, a cap, IB&C and mini catalogues, orientation leaflets etc. etc.
Then the mad rush into Memento Hall for some more retail therapy. I was very good – only bought the card tree, a gorgeous cardigan, a few packs of pens, and a shopping bag.
After this it was swap time – here are the two swaps I made for convention:
I have brought back with me some gorgeous projects which I still need to sort and photograph so that I can show them to you. So keep checking back for this.
After lunch we broke up into our groups and attended classes – gee the SU staff are fantastic. Think I spent the whole day in a dream, not believing that I was actually at a SU Convention!!
This is the team I belong to – the WOW Paperkrafters. It’s slightly confusing because I am also with the Creative Inkers. This is how it works – Karen (2nd on left) is my upline, and her upline is Jacque Pedersen whose team is the Creative Inkers – this means that by way of progression I belong to both teams. Anyway let me introduce them to you. From left to right: Donna, Karen, Debbie, Sally and little ole me (the granny of the group!) Note our matching Creative Inkers shirts.
Well that fills you in on our first day though to be honest I can’t relay to you the buzz and excitement – you will all just have to become demonstrators and go to the next convention which is being held in Melbourne next May and experience that for yourselves!
