I don't like to brag but...

Phew! It's been quite a week here at Funky Hand Towers..since the live show that I did last Tuesday on the Ideal World shopping channel my feet haven't really touched the ground. Funky Daze has sold an amazing number of copies and to give you a little heads up I have hardly any of them left, single numbers of copies left actually!! So if you are interested in buying one and finding out what it's all about get in quickly. I am expecting a new batch of stock from the manufactures later in the month but when what I have now is gone, that's it till then!!

Right onto some crafting, one of the demonstrations that I pulled together for the TV show last week was a brag book made with one of the word book collections on Funky Daze and I thought I would share the completed one with you as I was quite pleased with it when it was finally finished.

I created it using the Funky Guys word book collection. It's made up of pictures of all my dear other half, Ian's, Nephews and Niece. I made it to give to Ians Mum I hope she likes it now I've hawked it on the TV!! The lovely little vellum flower was made by Ruth from my design team, she's a real star making these flowers from vellum printed with papers from the CD.

I hand wrote the journalling, it says 'Grandchildren fill a space in your heart..you never knew was empty..' The picture is of all the kiddies when they were on a recent visit to the US, as there are grandchildren in the US and the UK they don't get together that often so this picture is pretty special.

These two little sweeties are Ian's sisters children, Adam and Steffi. Ian and I have the honour of being God parents to Steffi next weekend which is very exciting. Though I don't know what she will think of us two as God parents!! Tell you more about that another time!!

The last page has Ian's older brothers boys on it. Alex is the oldest and lives over here with his Mum and Nathan and Jack are turning into real little American boys as you can see from their baseball uniforms!!

Well, I still have a bit of work to do packing orders and I have some finishing touches to put to a new download collection that we will be releasing in the very near future so I'd best get back to work.

Speak again real soon

  1. Hi Anice

    I caught the repeat show last night and the Brag book is fab. I got Funky daze when it first came out and I am most definately going to do a book for my godson Alfie. It would be so cool if you could bring the books out in baby/kiddy colours...funky kids...lol It was lovely seeing all the cards made by your DT - just wish youd had a bit more time. You looked extremely well I think and so much more confident on TV now, a real pro! Looking forward to the next one!
