Onstage Live Auckland 2019 Summary

Wow, what an amazing few weeks I have had. My head is still spinning! So this post might not be terribly articulate but here goes! Perhaps I will let the photos do the talking!!  I have shared most of these photos on my facebook page already. 

First of all was the venue - the Sky Tower in Auckland. What a beautiful city. I have been before with my family about 8 years ago but we didn't spend a lot of time in Auckland. This time I stayed in the heart of the city at the venue which was so central. I was on the 18th floor so had amazing views (the first photo wasn't my view but it's still pretty spectacular) 

Why thank you - don't mind if I do!! AND they refilled it every day for me :) 

One of the main reasons I attend these events is for the friendships - each time I go I reconnect with old friends and make heaps of new ones too! I got to hang out with 600 of my favourite people for 3 whole days!!

Traditional Maori welcome

My team members and a few adopted friends

Prize Patrol winners! 

My gorgeous team leader Marelle Taylor

I finally got to meet this gorgeous lady in person after chatting online for ages - miss you my sweet friend! 

These were some of the Kiwi girls - they made us all lolly bags with all the New Zealand treats. So much fun and so yummy too! 

Dinner at the War Memorial and Museum. 

And then there are the gifts we receive...... 

New catalogue anyone??? 

And then..................

I had to keep a VERY big secret from you. I was honoured to have been asked to present a brand new stamp set and dies whilst in Auckland. This involved me getting new products a few months ago, making samples, preparing a speech and then doing it all live in front of 600 friends - oh and the CEO Sara and her mum Shelli, the co-founder of Stampin' Up! 

No pressure right!?

And because it was all top secret I couldn’t tell anyone what I was doing and it was soooo hard to keep a secret. No one knew until they announced my name and I came on stage!

I am really proud of myself for stepping wwaaayy out of my comfort zone and doing this. I never would have contemplated this even a few years ago and I was surprised how calm I felt whilst up there.

Me on one of the two big screens - yikes!! 

It was recorded by fellow demonstrator Kylie Bertucci and her husband Bruno. This is the best version I have at the moment. The video is long (but awesome to watch if you have time) so if you want to see me fast forward to the 52 minute mark.

These are some of the samples I made - I will blog them in more detail over the coming weeks. 

Phew, this post has taken me a while and I still have more to share including my huge stash of swaps and gifts. I'll post those next week for you.
