Help Required & Lapping it up … literally !

day 5 thursday plaque

Thursday was a ‘sea day’, and I bet you all think that I was having a lovely relaxing time, sunning myself in the glorious heat and taking a few laps of the pool ?!?!?!  Wrong !

We were actually walking for Haiti !  Not only were we walking, but we had a challenge to walk 10 laps of the Allure – which equated to 4.5 miles ! Surprised smile  Seriously, who walks 10 laps on a cruise ?!?!  Would you believe that practically every Demonstrator who achieved the trip, and who could walk, or be pushed, walked the 10 laps ! And here is the evidence !  We needed to raise $18,000 to build 3 new houses, and we raised over that ! YAY !!!  Stampin Up! paid for every single lap that every single person walked … not only is the company generous to us Demonstrators, but their charitable work is to be applauded x

After the walk, we took a quick shower and headed for the pool – well we did deserve it !

After lunch, we made our way to the Stampin Up! Hospitality room, as there were Demonstrators from all over the world, were demonstrating new products from the 2014-15 Catalogue. There were shed loads of samples and examples, and we actually got to see the 2014-15 NEW In-Colours – you are NOT going to be disappointed I promise you !

We could also pick up our swaps from the trip.  We had to make 26 swaps, and in return, we got 26 swaps back.  Here are some photographs of some of the swaps.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll be showing you some of them in more detail.

There were also lots and lots of displays …

That evening, we attended the Headliner Show – it was the amazing mo5aic – they were runners up in America’s Got Talent, and they were even better than when I saw them on TV !  They ‘make’ all their music themselves, and therefore use no instruments at all !

After the show, we went to the Promenade for a coffee and cake, night cap ..

….. and returned to our cabin to find the fifth pillow gift – this fantastic waste basket stuffed full of savoury and sweet delights !

Help !

I would appreciate your help please folks !  I have 3 places left for a stampers group starting in June.  The details for the stampers group/10 Club are HERE – but basically, it is to help YOU spread the cost of purchasing your crafting supplies.

You commit to spending £15 per month (or more) for 10 months (plus postage) … during one of the months that you are in the group/club, YOU will be the ‘virtual’ hostess, and will earn at least £25 to spend on anything you like from the current catalogues.  During your time with the group/club, you will receive all the NEW catalogues for free ! Plus a host of other benefits too !

As I say, I have 3 places left – if you recommend my stampers group to another crafter, and they commit to the 10 months, then I will send you a Stampin Up! gift as a thank you !  So please … pass on my details to your friends and family.

I am also looking for people to hostess NEW CATALOGUE parties for me in July – so if you would like a fun, crating evening with friends, then please consider holding a party for me – hostesses earn some incredible rewards, so please have a think about holding an event (which will be tailored to your requirements), and contact me.

As always, if you would like to place an order, or if you have any questions or queries about anything whatsoever, then please contact me on or call/text me on 07747 465186.

Don’t forget to pop back tomorrow for our trip to Mexico !!!!!!!!!

Take care – Cal xxx
