Australia Bound in 2019

November 11, 2018 — 33 Comments

Well, if you follow my Facebook feed you will likely have seen that I was recently accepted onto the design team for Couture Creations.

An exciting secret that was recently revealed was that as part of this appointment I have been invited to the second Creative Inspiration event in Brisbane, Australia, in March of 2019!

Am I excited? Heck yeah!

Am I nervous? Heck yeah!

Am I grateful? Heck yeah!

FYI, there were a whole host of other emotions but I won’t bore you with the ‘heck yeah’ to all of those.

Why nervous though? Well, hosting a workshop for over 200 eager crafters for one, LOL!

I have no doubt that it will be awesome and am therefore riding the wave of excitement rather than letting the nerves get the better of me.

Knowing that I will have the company of some of my fellow design team members, the gang from Couture Creations and a whole bunch of other craft retailers will help settle the butterflies for sure.

Anyway, if you are in the area, it would be good to have your company, but what to expect? In short, two FULL days of crafting, inspiration, shopping, goodies, sneak peeks and more!

Something genuinely exciting is that the team from Couture Creations will be launching gorgeous NEW Couture Creations collections and products exclusively at the event and every attendee will receive not only a generous kit filled with products to create all SIX class projects you will also receive a BONUS GoPress and Foil machine on the day!!

Would you like to come? You can find out more and secure your place here. Be warned, registration is already open and filling fast! Last year the event sold out in under 48 hours.

Anyway, so begins the build-up to what is looking like a super busy start to 2019 – keep your eyes peeled for more international shenanigans and updates on this event as I plan to blog this journey as I did with my wee tour of the UK.

Right, I’d best get my best thinking cap out of the wardrobe and start planning!

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll catch you again soon!

Much love.

J :)

    Hi John

    Wow, that sounds really exciting, you lucky, lucky thing you! Nah, not luck… Well earned. You are, without doubt, one of the most popular demonstrators in UK craft land and the only problem will be us getting you back from those Aussies!

    My friend was in Oz in the last year at an international Powerlifting event. Her time there went like this, Bronze medal= great. Cuddling a koala= better!

    Whether it’s stocking up on stash, making new friends or cuddling koalas have an awesome time, something to really look forward to (and it’ll be a damn sight warmer than Scotland in March!)

    Hope everyone is doing well, mentally & physically xxx

    Hugs, T xxx
