You would have noticed that things have been pretty quiet around here lately! But over the past 2 months lots of things have been happening and I have been one very busy lady!
You'll notice that all the Stampin'Up! images and promo's have been removed from my blog! Well, that is because I have resigned from Stampin' Up! as a Independent Demonstrator. This was a very hard decision for me to have to make as I love everything about Stampin’ Up!, especially the products and I have loved being a Demonstrator plus without Stampin’ Up! I would not have met all the wonderful customers I have and the friends I have made because of it!
So, what was the reason why I resigned from Stampin' Up!??
Well, a opportunity has come along that I am able to open my very own Craft Shop, here on the Sunshine Coast, "Creations In Paper" This was not planned at all, my sister was visiting from Darwin and we went up to Montville one afternoon for a bit of a look a round and we stumbled across a shop for lease!
It has been a dream of mine for about 6 years, to open my own Papercraft Shop, but due of other commitments and things happening in our lives, this never seemed to be a possibility! This was the main reason I joined Stampin’ Up!
I will be selling mostly products for Card Making, like stamps, papers, embellishments, tools, etc. I also have a class room, so once I get settled and a bit more organised, I will also be running regular daytime and weekend classes.
I would to say “Thank You” to you all for your support that you gave me as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and I look forward to catching up soon if you’re in Montville, on the Sunshine Coast.
It is not a huge shop, but it has character and it’s a starting point! I have attached a few “Before” and “After” photos, which are fun to see how different it now looks!! The layout has changed again since I took these photos a few days ago, and will probably change again before I am happy with it!
I have been waiting for my signs to get done and on Saturday morning when I arrived at the shop to open I got a pleasant suprise when I pulled up out the front!
There looking right at me were my completed signs. I was really happy with how they turned out, they are certainly bright and stand out from a distance!
They aren't the best photos, but I took them with my iphone as I was so excited and I had to send a picture to everyone straight away!!
