Along with many other New Zealanders and Australians I had the privilege of attending an Anzac Dawn Parade yesterday, if it wasn't for the many Serviceman and Women who left our shores to fight, many of whom did not return, we wouldn't have the freedom to attend these commemorations. I attended Dawn services with my three sons as they grew up and now I attend with my Grandsons, another privilege I may not have had except for the bravery of these men and women.
Lest We Forget.
Please send prayers and thoughts to all those poor souls affected by the terrible earthquake in Nepal.
All you wonderful ladies who are flying off to Convention, have a fabulous time and log lots of posts for us.

I think we're finally into Autumn weather and many will think it's winter, especially those in the South after this week's cold blast. I hope those of you who've had children home for the school holidays have enjoyed your time.
Only about 10 days until convention now so many will be busy getting ready for the last convention as we know it, which I'm sure will be very special. I hope as many as possible share your experiences through your blogs, I know I for one will be looking forward to seeing all your news.
Have a fabulous week.

Good afternoon all, please accept my apologies for the lack of a post on Sunday, I have been away with two of my grandsons and was unable to connect to the internet, although I tried on several occasions. We got back home yesterday afternoon and given that it is now Wednesday afternoon, I've decided not to post "Pics of the Week" until this coming Sunday 19th April 2015, instead I'm sharing a couple of photos of our trip.

Happy Easter everyone, I hope you have enjoyed Easter and celebrated in your usual tradition. I'm sure that family and friends have figured in your celebrations and or holiday, as this weekend marks the beginning of the school holidays and many may have ventured off for one more summer break before the winter starts.
I have noticed a definite decline in the number of projects being posted to Demo blogs that are linked to the NZSU Blog, is this because that many people are using Facebook in particular and/or Pinterest, to showcase their work and Stampin' Up products? Some weeks I am struggling to choose 9 projects as "NZSU Pics of the week" simply because of the lack of posts. This past week for instance 10 Demo's have posted projects. I have done a little research on the blog which started in 2007 and the format of the blog has changed several times during that period, it was in July 2010 that the choosing of 9 projects began. Is it time for a bit of tweaking of the format again? Let me know your thoughts. email me here Janet
Keep safe if you are travelling and enjoy the lovely weather we're still having.
