Merry Christmas to everyone

Well, here it is again, Christmas seems to come around so quickly these days. Must be because I'm getting older! I just wanted to send a message out to all my lovely blog readers and customers of Funky Hand to say have a very merry Christmas. Thank you to all of you for making 2009 a fantastic year for Funky Hand. Here's to a great 2010 for everyone.
Keep safe and enjoy yourselves
Loads of love

I've sneaked in just a little crafting!

As you can probably imagine it's a mad house here at the moment as we try to get ready for Christmas and moving into Teapot Studios between Christmas and New Year.  My biggest problem at the moment is getting BT to get their backsides into gear and connect my telephone and broadband lines in the office..what fun I've been having!!
With all the mad rushing about getting presents delivered (we ordered everything on line this was so much nicer than fighting the crowds in the shops I can tell you!) and sorting out everything for the office I have still been able to find a little time to craft.  I very small amount of time I have to admit.  I am ashamed to say it but..I had to buy my Christmas cards this year (Shocking!) I just haven't had the time to make them but I purchased cards from the MS society which of course is a charity close to my heart so that made me feel a little less guilty.

Anyway one of Ians nephews is unlucky enough to have a birthday two days after Christmas so he get lots of combined presents at Christmas that we have always thought wasn't fair so we always send him seperate gifts and two cards.  So unusually for this time of the year I got to make a birthday card as well as a Christmas one.


The birthday card has been made with papers and an image from my new CD Dreams Come True which isn't going to be released until January..keep your eyes peeled here for more details soon about the release date..just a little tease!! The Christmas card was made using a paper from my Christmas Word Book downloadable collection Blue Christmas and the topper is using an image from the Festive Fun digi stamp collection.

Well, I'd best get back to my HUGE list of things to do. Which I'm sure you all have as well. Before I go please don't forget that we still have a bit of time left before the end of the month for you to join in with this months challenge over on Get Funky!, Kath has set a great challenge to make a Xmas deco so please join in before the 31st if you can find time and have a chance to win a £20.00 voucher to spend on in January..don't forget the new CD will be out!

Speak again very soon.

The start of something new...

It's a pretty exciting and scary time here at Funky Hand Towers as we start to prepare to move Funky Hand from here into new premises. The big joke here calling the house Funky Hand Towers always came from the show 'Only Fools and Horses' where Del used to say to Rodney 'this time next year Rodney..we'll be millionaires' and they lived in Mandela Towers. Now these Towers are just too small to hold Funky Hand anymore..I told you a few posts back about our new offices..well we picked up the keys a few days ago of the freshly finished office and we will be working full time out of them beginning in the new year. Here's me waiting for my desk to be delivered..

and here's me taking the position I intend to have the majority of the time..I am the boss don't you know!!

It's a massive job trying to get everything sorted..and everything is so much harder as it's Christmas in a few weeks! But I can not wait to be sitting in my Studio,in Teapot Studios surrounded with all the wonderful media companies and other creative companies that work out of these offices,ready to start 2010.. it's going to be a big year I just know it!

The new CD Dreams Come True is now with the manufacturers and I will be back very soon to give you the release date and details of our live show on Create and Craft, where you will be able see the amazing things my fabby Design Team are creating with the new product. As usual they are out doing themselves with their wonderful creativity.

I have lots of other things to tell you about the move and what is planned for next year but I'm going to keep a few things back and tell you later! What a tease I am!

Before I go, I still have a BIG sale going on my website of all my craft CD-Roms, they are selling pretty fast and the sale ends at 9pm on Sunday 13th December so don't miss out on getting a bargain. Get over to and grab yourself an early Christmas pressie!
Oh, and once you've got yourself some Funky Hand papers why not join in with this months challenge over at the Get Funky! Challenge blog..there's £20s worth of vouchers to spend on the website to be won.

Speak again very soon.

Grab a bargain to celebrate our wash & brush up!!!

We've been working on a freshen up of our website for a while and finally I am happy to announce that it is all live and kicking !  I'm really excited about the new look which is also a hint about how the new CD is going to look when we release it.

As a bit of a celebration of us finishing up all the redesign work and the imminent arrival of the delivery of the new CD into the warehouse we thought an end of year craft CD sale was in order.  So, over on the website you will find all the currently available Funky Hand CD collections reduced by 33% which takes them all down to just over £10 each or even less!   Grab them while you can, they are going to be on sale from today until Sunday 13th December.

Don't forget that postage and packing is always FREE to anywhere in the world when you buy your CDs from us. So pop over and have a look at the new website design and treat yourself to an early craft Christmas know you deserve it!!

Speak again very soon

It's Get Funky Challenge time again! it really December already? Well it must be as today is the launch of a new challenge over at Get Funky! This month Kath is in charge and she has set us all the task of creating Christmas decorations! I can confirm that I had a few attempts at this challenge before I created anything that I was willing to share with you or the other members of the Design Team!! But finally I created these funky stockings to hang either on your Christmas tree or, if you are lucky enough to have one, on your fire place.

I used the stocking images from my new Christmas Digi Stamp download Festive Fun, I increased their size and then paper pieced them with papers from another of my Christmas download collections Funky Little Christmas.

Now if you want to see some inspired crafting get yourself over to Get Funky and see what my wonderfully talented Design Team came up with for this challenge. If you can find the time please join in with us, we'd love to see your last minute Christmas creations..who knows you could be lucky and win the £20.00 Funky Hand voucher to spend on stash in the new year!

Speak again very soon
