Absolutely Fabulous!!!!

Hi Crafters
A heads up that on Tuesday the 3rd of December I am doing an EK Success Pick of the Day.
A new concept for EK....Stamps and punches that work in perfect harmony.
There will be six choices and they are all beautiful. Just got the product so after my shows this week I will be back up the A1 and locking myself away on Sunday and Monday to get all my demos ready.
Please join me for the shows as I suspect it will be very popular.
Also at a really good would make a great gift for crafters.
Take care
Love and hugs

A test of my creativity.

Hi crafters
Every now and again as a professional craft demonstrator you get a kit that tests you creativity to its a good way!
Yesterday the EK Success POTD product arrived on my doorstep. It consists of  Circle, square, scalloped circle and scalloped square punches in various sizes.
Wow I thought ...this is not going to be easy to fill 11 live hours with limited product! being me set about doing boards so all the lovely viewers could see different ways of using them.
Despite me thinking this wouldn't take me long.....I was still doing the boards last night at 8 pm!
It really is amazing what you can come up with.
Please tune in tonig

Mel's Bo Bunny - Little Miss Blog Challenge Winner

Good morning all,

I can finally say that I've found the winner for my Blog Challenge on Bramwellcrafts :) There were so many beautiful creations that it took me a while to choose. I would just like to thank everyone for putting in so much time and effort as they were all absolutely gorgeous!! 

I would now like to congratulate TRACEY & CAITLIN JONES on being the worthy winners for this challenge. Well done Tracey & Caitlin, you have a massive bundle of Bo Bunny goodies being sent out to you! Also thrown in there will be a BRAND NEW 12"x12" Paper Pad by Colorbok called BOARDWALK. I hope you enjoy them!! :)

Here's a little bit more about Tracey and Caitlin...

Hi Everyone

My name is Tracy and I am Mum to 17 year old Caitlin and 3 year old Pip-Squeak (our Yorkshire Terrier).  I have been crafting approximately 14 years and I love crafting in all sorts of different aspects.  Why did I start crafting? - Caitlin spends lots of time in Hospitals and I needed something to do whilst just sitting there and I started crafting to fill the long days.  By the time Caitlin was 7 years old - we were taking craft kits with us so that everyone could join in on the Wards, even the Nurses I might add, ha ha.  Oh -  I am one of the strange breeds - I love the 'prepping' of all my crafting pursuits, give me a piece of paper to fold or a pair of scissors to do some cutting and I am in my element. I love making all my own templates and building 3d items - I do love a challenge!  Since losing my beloved Husband/Caitlin's Dad, Nigel in 2008, Caitlin and myself have raised thousands of pounds for our local Hospice and various Cancer Charities by using our crafting - I have always thought and truly believe that crafting is not for ourselves but for others - to show them you care.  In 2012 I was the proudest of all Mum's when Caitlin was picked to be an Olympic Torchbearer for all her fundraising endeavours for the benefit of others in memory of her Dad.

I will be adding all of the entries to my blog and Facebook later today :)

Have a great day everyone!

Love Mel xxxx
