I'm here.....I'm actually here!


Yes, it has been a long time since I have regularly posted, however I am pleased to say that my computer problems are now behind me and Mark is no longer allowed anywhere near my laptop!!

So what's been going on?

Yesterday (Saturday), I held my launch party for the new 2016-17 catalogue.  It is fantastic and although I didn't do as big of a spread as in previous years, I was surprised myself by how many cards and packaging I had churned out in a few days.  As I told the ladies that turned up, I cased the majority of the cards straight out of the catalogue.  Of course, there were some there that were my own design, but the vast majority were straight copies.  And that is one of the purposes of the catalogue.  It is not only a book that showcases our products, but it is an IDEAS book as well.  I have all my old ones within easy reach for when my mojo takes off, or I am really rushed to get something done.

One of my hostess clubs (aka stamp clubs) is coming to an end.  The next new round will start in AUGUST.  If you are thinking that you would like a way to manage your budget for all of the new items, this is a perfect club for you.  A minimum $50 order every second month is all it takes.  You get to be the hostess once during the club year and also get gifts and benefits from me (like free catalogues, welcome gifts, discounts etc).  If you would like to take part, please contact me via my email at sam.simpson@bigpond.com

I will be starting a new techniques group this year as well.  This group will be the first to run under the new format of a day class.  Once a quarter, we will get together and complete 3 - 4 new techniques.  This format is beneficial to those that would love to be part of my monthly tech groups, but are unable to commit to either the timing (day/night) or the day of the week selected.  If you are interested in learning more about this, please contact me on email at sam.simpson@bigpond.com
I currently have 4 ladies down on the list for this and I can only provide space for 8.  Get in quick!!

Whilst I have taken a step back from running regular monthly classes for this year, I am still available to provide in home workshops for you and your guests.  Many people tell me that they don't know enough people that would be interested, however, you would be surprised by who in your circle of friends would indeed come along.  It is really all in the way that you frame it.  After all, who doesn't send/give a birthday, Christmas, sympathy, Mothers/Fathers day card?  And what about all the brilliant one of a kind packaging you can do for parties, weddings, Christenings/Naming days and other celebrations?  Trust me, more people that you give credit for would be interested.  You just have to ask.  Let me help you by giving you some information about who to contact and what to say.  And for your trouble, you will have a great time, learn stuff and earn freebies!!!!

Ok, I'll leave it there for my first blog back.  Any questions please contact me.  If you require a new catalogue, please let me know and I will get one delivered to you ASAP.
