Thought I had better explain why I have gone missing in action. I have had kitten troubles and I had to have time to deal with my losses. Anyway, I now have a beautiful memorial garden for my 2 "kitty angels".
Alice's toy poodle has never left my side through this ordeal. She is just gorgeous.
Anyway, I fully intend on getting back to regular posts about Kaszazz and will be posting those much awaited projects that I was talking about before.
Thanks girls for your patience, Fiona.

The Team Training Day went well. Everyone loved the new products. I will be uploading the new product flyer.
It was great to meet Amanda and Nisha who travelled a long way to attend, and of course, Kelly who had travelled from Coffs Harbour. Annette, Carmen and Marg enjoyed the day as well.
The cards we made were magnificent. Thanks to Amanda Cordingley for designing them. As it was, we didn't do the layout as some of the ladies had to leave to do their travelling.
I showed the girls some of the projects I had been working on and they would like me to post instructions and photos. So please stay tuned for those later on.

Team Training Day is on this Saturday, the 15th January. The new products are just gorgeous, and I can't wait to share them with you.
As consultants, there is a competition to design a project. This time, we have to include one of our sticky bling words, and of course, use only Kaszazz products.
There are 5 words in our Sticky Bling Words and include: Cherish, Family, Friends, Love and Princess.
I better get busy with my projects.

I held the Sterling Silver Rollagraph Butterfly Card Workshop tonight and everyone enjoyed it. Thank you to Carmen, Marg, Annette and Stacey for attending. It was also excellent value for $20.
I suggested to the girls to do the cards again in a different colour, and the girls thought this was a good idea. Carmen has picked the colour red, Marg has picked the colour green, Annette picked the colour orange and Stacey picked the colour pink, and I have picked the colour purple.
Hopefully, I can share their creations with you next week.

It was mentioned by one of my Consultants, Carmen, that in the photos, you may not be able to see that the handbags are 3D. To remedy that, I have taken another photo of the bags on their side. These handbags are really cute and good for parties to put lollies in, or for weddings to use as bombonieres. I might have a go at these tonight.
I have left these handbags plain, but you can embellish them in any way you like.
Thought I would share a photo of some items that I made with our new "bellish Ezy-Press", roller die-cutting and embossing machine exclusive to Kaszazz.
I had so much fun making up this display. Just think of all the creative possibilities with this machine. Thanks to Carol Poole for coming up with this idea.
I have had to change the time for the Flourish Square Clock Workshop on the 13th January from 10am - 12.30pm to the new time of: 6.30pm - 8.30pm.
Hope this doesn't inconvenience anyone.

I just wanted to remind you all that the theme for January's Artist Trading Card will be "Bears".
Each person will have to create 5 ATC's measuring 2.5" x 3.5". You also have to use Kaszazz products only. On the back of each card, you need to put your name on them, the title or theme of the ATC and the number (1/5, 2/5.......) if it's part of an edition / series, as well as the date the ATC's were made.
As we have Team Training Day on the 15th of this month, we can swap the ATC's then to save on postage.
I had a dear friend ask: "What do you do with ATC's?"
The answer to this is: (a) you can collect them and display the cards in an album, or
(b) you can use the cards to embellish your own handmade cards, or
(c) do anything creative with them that you like, eg: put them inside a name tag to make a unique piece of jewellry.
Remember, ATC's are mini works of art and are meant to be lots of fun. They can only be swapped or given away and never sold.
Have fun creating, Fiona.
