Stamping By The Sea Retreat 2018

03 November 2018

Hello! Back in August (which I know seems an eternity ago!) I hosted my second Stamping By The Sea Retreat, in beautiful seaside Kiama on the NSW South Coast. The theme this year was blue and white nautical and everyone who attended loved being part of the weekend which was jam-packed full of crafting and laughs - thank goodness because I made a promise and felt the pressure to deliver! lol

I could write forever about how much fun the weekend was and it's taken me about 4 hours to go through the hundreds of photos I had on my camera and collate them all, so I'll just share the photos and you can see all the fun that was had! 

Thank you to our Guest Demonstrators who contributed to the learning and fun of the weekend:
Clare Langsford - Australian BDM from Stampin' Up! Head Office and cardmaker.
Brian King - US Demonstrator and wonderful friend.
Teneale Williams - Phenomenal crafter and alocohol marker extraordinaire and my fabulous Upline.
Narelle Macey - Aussie Demonstrator, team member and lovely friend. 

A HUGE thank you to my Mum/Phyl, Lisa Eaton, my Hubby/Daniel and my family for all the help and hardwork with the retreat.

Lastly (but certainly not least) my dear friend and partner in crime for the retreat, Tracey Tullier, who worked tirelessly nourishing our crafty bodies and making the most delicious food. (For some reason I missed a photo with year she will not escape me!) 

Next year is going to be even better - you won't want to miss it!

Today I'm jetting off to the US, bound for the Stampin' Up! Onstage 30th Anniversary in Orlando Florida with my lovely friend Kym Byrne from Brisbane. I am sooooo excited. I will share all the news when I return. (I thought I'd better share all the fun from the retreat and empty out my camera so I can fill it with more exciting Stampin' Up! adventures!). Happy crafting friends and thank you for following my blog.
