Its October already and things are getting busy, wow I cant believe how quick this year is going!
I have just got home from the First Ever Australasia Convention for Close to My Heart and have had the most amazing time with all of my amazing team, friends and fellow crafters. We learnt so many new techniques, ideas and some heard some really inspirational speakers. I was asked to speak at the Leadership Day which was an honour to be sharing my business with all of the leaders of Australia and New Zealand.
My highlight of the weekend was being awarded the RISING STAR OF THE YEAR award for 2013-2014. What a complete honour. I was speechless and this doesnt happen very often at all as many of you would be aware. I was awarded a beautiful glass engraved award and a gigantic $1000 cheque which my children are thrilled with. Just quietly so I am I!
What I love most about Convention is spending time with my favourite people. Spending time with your favourite crafters and in my case this happens to be my team is so inspiring and FUN. We had Kasia made us team tshirts so we were united on the first day and we certainly made an impression.
So very proud of my beautiful team members Kasia Leach and Allison Cornielle for coming in the top 4 of Australasia for the Page Completion competition. I am ever so proud of them!
I am excited to announce some exclusive new products which are coming in November. The new tote for $35 and the new trolley for all of the organisers (yay!) is only $199. Something to consider holding a party for and getting is half price! I love these organisers. The trolley fits in 1 large, 2 medium and 1 small organisers but tools, papers and embellishments. This would make it perfect for transporting for workshops and retreats.
I have many workshops and events coming up and I would love to share everything with you soon
