Wow what a week!

Sorry I haven't been around here much this week..over the weekend I was rather ill, you may already know the sad state of my health having being diagnosed with MS a couple of years ago but..I also have the joy of being Epileptic as well. I have to admit that I just take my drugs and forget about it as I hardly ever have seizures, they are always in my sleep and the last ones were over a year ago.. well until last weekend that is. I unfortunately had two seizures in twelve hours which has left me rather brain fried and frazzled to say the least. I have bitten my tongue good and proper, so badly that I thought I might have to cancel my live appearance on Ideal World tomorrow..but I'm feeling much better now so it's all still going ahead! Just be kind to me if I forget what I am saying mid sentence..I've been like it all week!!

So you can still catch me tomorrow on Ideal World and Create and Craft at 11am, I will be making cards with three of my CDs, Now that's Funky, V Funky and Funky Seasons. The most exciting things are that I will be able to share the fantastic card samples that my new design team members have created. They are amazing!! I am going to be so proud to show them off tomorrow, the girls have really done themselves and me proud!!

Wish me luck on the boring journey down to Peterborough from Newcastle this evening and.. the new download 'Shabby Saturday' will be launched on the website for sale this coming weekend. Sorry for the delay..I'm afraid my ill health has had quiet an effect here at Funky Hand Towers this week, hopefully we will be getting back to normal service soon! To give you a little bit more of an idea what you can expect from the download here are a few cards that the design team have pulled together using papers from it:

Right off to check the last of my demos..I hope you can join me tomorrow at 11am, I need all the support I can get!!

Anice xx

    Hi Anice - I am sorry to hear of your traumatic time. It must have been awful both for you and Ian too.

    I hope you are both ok.

    Things always have a knack of happening at just the wrong time don't they - not that there could be a good time for such things to happen.

    I am sure tomorrow will go well.

    Look after yourself and take a bit of a breather when tomorrow is done. Jules x
