My convention Swaps

I am flying out to Sydney today for the annual Stampin' Up! convention. Part of the fun when Stampin' Up! demos get together is we do 'swaps' How it works is you make so many of so many of one thing and you 'swap' them with other demo's items. So I am taking 100 of these little wee handbags and will come home with 100 different samples which will be great to be able to show all my customers different ideas. Everyone have different styles and of cause different products so it gives a great variety.

Lucky for me these handbags lie flat so makes travelling with them very easy. I am taking them on as hand luggage as I would be so upset if they got lost with my bags! I just hope the little brads in them wont cause me delays at airport security!! They are made from a 6"x6" piece of DSP instead of the 12"x12" DSP I usually use.

So I wont be posting anything till I get back next Wednesday as I don't know what Internet access I can get and I am not clever enough to preload posts before I go. But keep popping in just in case!
