a sad goodbye......

Hiya Everyone. Just letting you all know that I have resigned from my job at Scraptivate today. It is time for me to move on and do something new.

I feel so completely privileged to have make some amazing and awesome friendships directly from my time at Scraptivate and also generally from within the amazing scrapbooking community. Thank you to everyone who has made me smile, offered their friendship and support and especially to those lovely customers who gave myself and all the staff at Scraptivate such lovely gifts and treats at Christmas.

I would like to thank Natalie Wolfe for giving a relative unknown Scrapbooker the opportunity a little over 4 years ago the chance to work and grow within the scrapbooking industry. It has changed my life.

Don’t despair though ladies, I am never to far away. I am here on face book far to often and my little blog is still ticking away so you’ll always know what I am up to.

Thank you. xxxxxxx

So much for two posts in one day! ..........

hahahahaha sorry girls, i seemed to have gotten distracted for....... oh um seems like nearly two weeks.

I will say i have been very very busy sorting and packing all your donations for the QLD flood ladies and have just re-surfaced after a bit of a rest. If you would like to see how all this is going check it out on the special blog Jenny set up for this. here

Now i am getting straight down to it. I have been meaning to share exciting news for over a month now and just never get to it so I am doing that first up tonight.

First exciting news..... Im excited to announce that i have been chosen to join the Angie Delarie DT here in Perth. Im so excited, she makes the funkiest stamps and paper embellishments you have every seen. Go check them out here and whilst your there check out all the DT action.

Second big news...... Twiddleybitz has been picked up by a distributor in the USA!!! Yay twiddleybitz. thats only part of the big news. the other part is the DT was asked to do some very special work to go across as samples for the amazing chipboard they make at CHA!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!! i was sooooo excited. Just knowing my work was there was incredible. almost as good as being there but it could be the closest i get i think! hahaha here's what i did to send across to show the americans how clever our Aussie scrappers are.......

Ok next up. I have a Layout class coming up next week at Scraptivate. If you would like to come do a class with me just call the store to book your self in. Loads of fun distress techniques to grunge up your layout but while still keeping it pretty in a Mel kinda glitter and bling way.

Very long update......

Prepare yourselves ladies........ I am updating my blog and i have lots to share!

First up Jenny and I would like to thank everyone for their generosity in donating craft goods to the collection that Michelle Jamison has spearheaded. Jenny and I have just been doing the co-ordinating for the Perth leg of this amazing appeal. For more details on where to donate un-need craft goods for all the ladies of Qld who have lost everything pop on over to the little blog Jenny created to keep all the info in one place here at Scrap Supply Donations. Don''t fret ladies there is still a little time if you want to drop stuff off to the stores for collection otherwise we could always give you a forwarding address to send your stash straight to Michelle if you'd like.

I'm sure when we first put out the call Jenny and i thought we might get enough items to fill a few boxes and we were happy to just post it all on. We have such an out pouring of goodwill from all you WA girls that we have sooooo much stuff to send to QLD that we had to look for alternative methods of sending all your donations. Thanks to Jenny's amazing working relationship with transport company Rand, we are pleased to announce that this generous company has offered to transport your donations for us for free.

As we truly appreciate their help we would like to give them a plug for their spirit in helping us help others. If at any time you need to use a transport company for various reason, in the future please check Rand out to see if they might meet your needs. Thanks so much to Rand we really really appreciate this.

Also Ladies if you would rather create finished layouts for Sharryn Thomson who is co-ordinating an album drive for the ladies who have lost there scrapbooks in the floods and now the cyclone, check out her appeal Rising Waters Flood Appeal.

As Sharryn Says We can make a difference. Get on board these great appeals to help out the crafters in our community that have lost everything in recent months.

Thanks ladies.



I will be back with installment two of today's update shortly.
