Hi all
How time flies when your having fun.  We have had the best time, with Senz, and hopefully you have seen the classes we are teaching around NZ. Firstly we won best stand at Senz! Yeah for us.  We did have a very busy stand, with examples everywhere, unfortunately the photos didn't do it justice.  It was worth all the effort we put into it, and we were ecstatic and very grateful to win. We had a lot of fun, my team of five, taught 7 classes (5 sold out) + 2 extra double up classes, and our make n take.  We had quite a few laughs at night, with plans for next year being made, bigger, brighter and ... our theme?  Well we cant spill all the beans just yet, but the girls have all got roles and assignments, (its a Capricorn thing).  We think we may have broken our record for taking down our display, 45 minutes, and all it cost me was three dozen sausage rolls, and a slice..... yes the same guys as last time asked for that as payment. 

We then advertised our big on the road classes:
Morrinsville, Wellington, Dunedin, Nelson, Christchurch and Invercargill. 

We have had a lot of bookings, Morrinsville has 67 people booked in so far (3 spaces left).  Nelson we have had incredible support, as well as Christchurch, both venues are going ahead as minimums were reached.  Dunedin and Invercargill have been slower, and we would imagine one if not two will go ahead, but good progress and Wellington, well we might have to do some promotion at Paper Arts in October.   We are teaming up with other retailers from each area, to ensure that we have a shop at each event. 

Now that Senz is over we are back into our weekly scrapbooking classes starting next week, and our one off classes kick off this Saturday with Alysha.  I am meant to be away in the Coromandel for a few days, but the weather has decided that isnt going to happen, so I guess it will be a chance to focus on C4, that is happening in November (3 spaces left).  Maybe have a little play with some products.  

Well I have a meeting soon, so better get myself moving, check out all the classes below, and we would love to see you in store soon. 

P.s Trina has added more classes for her retreat in Auckland - check them out below if you want to just go up for the day only you can now book in!!!

After such an overwhelming response to this class and a large number of requests for us to come to you guys we are!!!! We have chosen 6 main locations to first offer the classes.

All venues require a $10 deposit for booking. Another deposit of $40 will be requested in october and the final amount paid 1 month prior to your class date.

To book - pay your deposit through the website – it will automatically charge you $6.50 “postage” (a default setting on the website that we can’t change) plus the $3.50 price below to make a total of $10 when you checkout – this is the deposit.

If you prefer you can pay off the full amount in one lump sum or spread out over the next six months - simply give us a call to discuss these options. We will only allow payment of the full amount once we know that there is enough numbers for your locations class to go ahead.
