Onstage Local Perth November 2019

Wow what a wonderful day it was yesterday at onstage in Perth. 
The whole day is a bit of a blur but it was awesome anyway!

Ok..... a week before we went away to Exmouth in the September/ October holidays, I received a phone call from Donna Williams at head office in Sydney asking me if I would like to present Jacque Williams 1 million CSV stampset that she designed when she reached her awesome milestone......

I instantly said yes!! (What was I thinking I said to myself no way will I ever present at onstage again!!) I obviously can't say no to her! I then went away for two weeks and had the most wonderful holiday.

It meant I really only had a couple of solid weeks to work on samples and what I was going to say before I snuck away for a quick holiday with hubby to Bali and a few days later my friend Vicki arrived from Brisbane the week before the event.
It was full on! I did have an awesome set which was so easy to work with!

That feeling of nervousness snuck in about halfway through the day and I thought oh my goodness I am going to be sick! Public speaking is my worst fear and now I was about to do it again for the second time in 3 years! Luckily I love the products so it was easy to talk about. I even changed up my little script and got a few laughs along the way. That made me feel a lot better and especially hearing the reactions to my cards made it all worthwhile.

I was really kicking myself as I forgot to take my digital camera to get pictures... I had some great demo friends who sent me theirs - thankyou to them all I am so grateful.

Here are a few

After the day I went out for dinner with a group of lovely demonstrators and was able to relax a little. I slept well last night.... and I may or may not have had a nana nap this afternoon.

Here are my actual samples

Here is my haul from the day and isn't the backpack amazing??

I was lucky as a few of my team came along and we all got to sit together.


I met so many more awesome people yesterday and I am so happy that I started this journey. If you would love to join my little team the Inkypinks and come along to the next onstage please contact me as I would love to hear from you.
