It's Sale Time at Funky Hand!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I know I have eaten and drunk enough to keep me going for all of 2011!  I don't know why we do it.. as I'm pushing in that third sausage roll I know I'm going to regret it come January when I can't get my favourite jeans on, but it still doesn't stop me!!

Anyway less of my over eating and more about the BIG SALE  we are having over at our website www.funkyhand.com there is 25% discount off everything, craft CD Roms, downloads and paper packs so grab yourself a real bargain before the New Year begins.  The sale starts at 12 noon Tuesday 28th December and ends 12 noon 1st January.

In the New Year we will be launching some fantastic new Funky Hand products which I hope you will love as much as I do and my Design Team did when they received them just before Christmas! I'm looking forward to seeing what they create with them and sharing their creations and the new products with you.  There are going to be lots of changes in 2011 for Funky Hand on the website www.funkyhand.com and lots of new products for you to enjoy as well.  There is still time for you to join in with the December Challenge over on the Get Funky Challenge Blog.  It will be your last chance to win £20.00 to spend on our website as there are going to be changes over there too in 2011. Woohoo!  It's all go here at the moment.

Right, I'd best get back to work as I have a new download collection to finish for release in January and start to make plans for the release of our new craft CD Rom at the end that month.  Keep your eyes here to see more details about that..though the eagled eyed amongst you might have noticed an updated date for a show on Ideal World/ Create and Craft TV in January on the side bar here already..that might give you a clue when the new Funky Hand craft CD will be launching.... wink!

I hope you all have a wonderful New Year..now what are you still doing here? Get over to www.funkyhand.com straight away and grab a bargain before they are all gone!!
Speak again very soon

Crafting is in the family..

Sorry, I haven't been around here much recently. I have just had one illness after another. First I got a frozen shoulder in my good left arm which ended with having to have a steroid injection in it to give it the kick it needed to get on it's way.Thankfully I have a wonderful friend Vic who is training as a physio so she was able to give me exercises to do which helped loads as well which has meant that I haven't suffered too much recently with the stupid thing! Though it really put a stop to my crafting, which at this time of the year isn't the greatest.  Just as I was starting to get back to some sort of normal last week I started to sound like a poor young lad who's voice was breaking, then I couldn't talk (which Ian seemed to think wasn't such a problem surprisingly!!) After ANOTHER trip to the Doctor I was diagnosed with viral Laryngitis.  Grrrr..just starting to feel slightly normal now..well as close as I get anyway, so here I am to catch up with you all.

As I said I haven't been crafting much recently for one reason or another but I was very pleased to receive a lovely card from Ians seven year old nephew Adam which he drew himself and then his school printed them so they could be the family Christmas cards this year.  I asked his permission to share it with you and he said it would be OK for you to see his creation which I think is just great..

I think he is expecting lots of lovely big presents from Santa under his Christmas Tree this year if his card is anything to go by!

I'm pleased to tell you that our new craft CD is now finished and will be released at the end of January 2011.  Of course I will give you more info as we get closer to the time for release but..it has some great new additions to it and we are really excited for you to see it.  Infact 2011 is going to start off very lively on the www.funkyhand.com website.  In January we will be launching some great new products that I'll be back with more information about over the next couple of weeks before the beginning of the year.  I'll be back before Christmas to wish you all the best for the season..now I'm off to have a nice cuppa and see if I can put the finishing touches to a new download collection for January.. see it's all go here!!

Oh, before I get back to work if you have a spare moment try and join in with this months challenge over on the Get Funky! challenge Blog as it's the last one where you will be able to win £20.00 to spend on Funky Hand products on our website as we are having a big old change around and shake up starting in 2011. 

Speak again very soon..keep warm and safe.

Wow..will this snow ever end?

I know I'm not the only person in the UK to be thinking this today..or infact for the last few weeks!  We couldn't even get into Teapot Studios last week, but Corrina and I have fought through the snow this week to get here..it's been a fight every day though I can tell you.

Here's a couple of pictures I took this morning as I ventured out of the office building to the post room to see if we had any post..

This is outside of Teapot Studios main doors..and this is the view from there toward the post room..

That snow really is piled up practically above the windows!!  You know what..when I got to the post room the postman had only just arrived and the post hadn't been sorted so I'll have to go back later. Doh!

Anyway with all the catching up we have had to do I haven't been anywhere near my crafty stash to be able to create anything, which is pretty sad. But..we have had a few exciting deliveries arrive this week of brand new Funky Hand products that I have been hinting about for a while.  They will not be available to purchase until the New Year but I think I might give you a little sneaky peek of some of them in my next blog post.. see I'll just keep you guessing for a little while longer what a tease I am!

Well that's it from me today, keep safe and warm whatever you are upto and I'll speak to you again very soon.

December Get Funky Time!

It's that time again where we launch a new Get Funky Monthly challenge..but be warned..this will be the last month in this format as we are having a change around.  It's all good and about time as Get Funky! is now one year old and nothing should stay the same for too long.  I'll fill you in on more details in the New Year but for now lets get to this months challenge. 
As I am a bad leader and I have been stranded away from Teapot studios for almost a week now with the bad snow we have here in Newcastle I haven't been able to make a card for this months challenge yet (shocking!) as soon as things get back to some normality here I'll get it made and on the blog, also I have been very disorganised so Kathy from my DT twinkled in like a fairy godmother and offered to let us join in with her sketch blog Kathys Waffle Sketch File this month.  So, here is the sketch for you to have a go at..

For a bit of inspiration here is the wonderful creation that Kathy made using papers from the Colour Me Happy CD ROM
Now you know the rules you just have to use at least one paper or extra on your creation from Funky Hand and you will be in with a chance of winning the £20.00 voucher to spend on my website www.funkyhand.com

I look forward to seeing your creations.
