Hello! We are fresh back from exhibiting at the Hobby, Craft and Stitch trade only Exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham. It was a great success, but very hard work on the feet! We met some fantastic retailers and I would like to say thank you to everyone who came to say hello, it was great to meet you all! It was Funky Hands first exhibition so it was scary and exciting at the same time. Ian my techie was brilliant over the three days as he had to talk to people about craft when thats not really his thing! He did a great job, I don't think anyone even realised! Now we are back at home and things are not slowing down. I have orders every where getting processed and I have to start my next Cd even before Funky Seasons has actually been launched on funkyhand.com!
The picture is Ian and I standing on our stand waiting for the exhibition to open on the first day.. you can see the tension I am sure!! Well best get back to it..speak soon.

I have been having fun making cards with my new backing papers from my new CD 'Funky Seasons' This card is for my other halfs sister in law over in America. I used the polka dot paper from Autumn - Forest Walk for the backing and used a fab chipboard handbag as a topper. I was really pleased with the effect. Hope she likes it!

Phew! At long last I have almost finished my new CD..so I thought I would give you a little taster of what it contains. This is a small sample of the papers from one of the Spring Collections 'Spring Whispers' lovely fresh pinks and greens. The CD is going to be called 'Funky Seasons' and there are papers based on colours and themes for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. There are also a few new extras to help with your card making and scrapbook pages like matching Alphabets, tags and even gift bags to co-ordinate everything! It's been fun creating the items for this CD. I will be launching it at the Trade Exhibition, Craft, Hobby and Stitch at the NEC, Birmingham 18th-20th Feb. Our stand is in the Bright Sparks Pavillion stand BS21. Come and say hello if you are attending! It will then be available on www.funkyhand.com Well I have loads to do before the exhibition so I will let you know how it went when we get back.
