Well, it has been a whirlwind of a week.  So much going on and so little time.

Although my time in Melbourne was extremely brief, I would do it all again in a heartbeat.  Tim, is the most humble, friendly and warm man I have met in a long time.  His workshop was a fast paced information overload, that had my head swimming with ideas.  Love new inspiration.  I also met some lovely consultants and wonderful staff from HQ.

Due to family reasons and budget I made the decision to fly out at the crack of dawn and flew home about 10pm.  3.5 hours of productive shopping first thing after landing and finding out where I needed to be.  An amazing lunch at the Trust Melbourne. And then a short walk across the road, to the Oaks on Market to start the workshop.  As soon as we sat down there was no stopping.  I have some groovy tags full of techniques to share with you all (later). And a note pad full of tips, tricks and other useful information.

Remember to have fun creating, and Enjoy the journey

Two more Sleeps

That is right...... two more sleeps and then I will be in Melbourne meeting one of my biggest idols.  The all mighty TIM HOLTZ.  I cannot tell you how extremely excited I am.  I am feeling a little overwhelmed and nervous.  I am sure I will be fine once I get to Melbourne and get to where I need to be.

This is definatley a once in a life time opportunity and I am extremely honoured to be have this opportunity.  I am sure once I get back I will have lots of exciting news to share.

I also have a little achievement coming up tomorrow.  I will be celebrating 5 years with Kaszazz.  I seriously never thought I would be around this long.

I joined for the love of creating and the fact I truly wanted products as cheap as I could get them, as I was a stay at home mum with two little boys and a husband who was at work all the time.  I signed without even having a party and only meeting my upline once.  Within the first 4 months of joining I had my first downline member (who has unfortunately left my team for other adventures).  Shortly after, she joined, we were doing markets together.  And before long I was doing regular workshops from home on a Friday evening.

Needless to say the rest is history.  Without a doubt, joining has been awesome for my self esteem, and confidence.  Although the journey has not always been up hill and I could never say it has been easy, I would definatley do it all over again.

For without joining, i surely would not have met alot of you.  I would not have had nearly as much fun.  And I am not sure I would have learnt as many lessons or techniques.

Thank you to all that have helped me along the way.

Here is to celebrating where my creative journey has been and where it is going to go from here (starting with meeting the man himself  - MR TIM HOLTZ).  Creating is not something I will be giving up anytime soon.  So, remember its about having fun and enjoying the journey

Until next time stay creative
