Fresh back from Ministry of Mixology USA which I will share soon Andy Skinner and I are honored to have an article in Australia’s Australian Simply Cards!

The wonderful and brilliant Marji interviewed us and just did an awesome job.  Andy and I are gearing up in three weeks to head to New Zealand and Australia so this is very exciting!

Creative Adventure Downunder – New Zealand
Friday 29th September – Sunday 1st October 2017, Waipuna Hotel, Auckland, New Zealand
This three day weekend retreat is all about immersing yourself in classes hosted by premier tutors of the papercraft industry today.
Each year we strive to line up a diverse selection of tutors who bring to you an array of classes that are sure to get your creative juices flowing. This retreat is a busy weekend with back to back classes. Saturday night is set aside as Crop Night should you choose to do so, this year we are going to step it up a notch or two. We’ve found that participants enjoy sitting with their friends and the tutors while they work on completing projects from the classes held during Friday and Saturday. It’s a great time to kick back and get to know the tutors a little more.

If your passion is mixed media, painting or paper craft, no matter what level you think you are at you will find this weekend totally inspiring!

There’s always such excitement in the air as everyone arrives for the first class on Friday morning and that buzz of excitement continues through to the last person leaving on Sunday afternoon. It’s definitely a time for kindred spirits to gather and there are lots of hugs at the end!

The wrong choices can bring us to the right places.  The biggest failures often carry the best lessons.  When you fail to get what you want, consider that it just might be a blessing in disguise.  Seriously, be grateful that certain connections and situations didn’t work out.  If you didn’t let go and learn, you would be stuck with false promises.  Celebrate your progress. “
