OnStage (Part 2) - 2020 Mini Catalogue, SAB plus, more!

Aside from presenting at OnStage (see OnStage Part 1 blog post here) the other exciting element was sharing it with a team member who was a First Time Attendee! Sue and I not only shared the fun of OnStage but also, a few extra days having fun in Sydney. Plus, I got to catch up with many demonstrator friends that I have made over these past 13 years as an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

At OnStage we always receive a beautiful bag from Stampin' Up! which includes a new stamp set, stationery, badge for Prize Patrol and our achievement ribbons. I didn't make sales this time around, however, I did reach a level for leadership and recruiting which my team has grown a little over the last year and my team members have reached extra titles.

One of the things I usually participate lots in is Swaps, where we created samples and swap with other demonstrators to get extra ideas and inspiration. As I was presenting and a lot of my OnStage prep time was taken up with this I only managed 10 swaps of quick and easy desktop calendars. The thought was there if not the time for any extra effort.

I did make an OnStage survival kit for Sue, being her first time attending, and a tag for her bag as it is easily mistaken for someone else's when we all get the same! The kit included a highlighter, post it notes, jelly beans, bandaids, tissues and a little notebook.

Here are a few snapshots of the things we did and friends we caught up with, although I realised I didn't get a photo with everyone I spent time with and love to see.

And some more...

I didn't finish my Make and Takes at OnStage, and still haven't finished them yet, so they will have to be some sneak peaks for another blog post. Although you can see them in the bottom middle photo and the swaps I received are in the bottom right photo.

Here are all the beautiful new products and catalogues etc that I received at OnStage, plus, the gorgeous back pack with the lovely poppy theme.

 The new 2020 Mini Catalogue is just full of beautiful new products and inspirational projects...

If you need a copy and don't have an active demonstrator then message me and I will get one to you.

I also can't wait for Sale-a-Bration where there is extra bonuses to shop, host or join. More details to come!

After all the fun and excitement of OnStage, Sue and I, enjoyed some sightseeing and fun at some of the local attractions like Madame Tussauds. We also enjoyed a lovely dinner at our hotel's restaurant with my dear friend Di Barnes and her lovely hubby, who took a photo of the two of us as we had missed getting one at OnStage. It was just such a lovely time and I look forward to doing it all again at the Stampin' Up! events next year whenever and wherever they may be held.

Aren't the hotel flower arrangements just stunning behind us?

Well now that I have finally caught up with blogging about my OnStage adventures, I need to now find some time to finish my Make n Takes and to create some projects with some of the beautiful new products to share with you.

So watch this space and don't forget to subscribe to my newsletters to keep abreast of all the promotions and happenings in my Stampin' Up! business and activities.

If I don't get to post anything prior to Christmas I want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and may it be a time of reflection and good times spent with family and friends. x
