Well, the challenge keeps growing and you guys never cease to amaze me!
Why? Read on friend, I shall explain.
A while back, during a catch up with the All Counties Challenge sponsor, Create & Craft TV, they expressed an interest in making something creative that could be given out for donations.
It took a while for planning and printing, and I have only been able to grab limited quantities for visitors to various public events and All Counties Craft Challenge workshops until now.
Today however I received a message to say that it recently went fully live on the Create and Craft TV website and in the very short time from it becoming available it has already generated over £3,000 in donations!!!
That has just boosted the challenge fund raising total from over £5,000 to over £8,000 – a whopping 41% of the way to the £20,000 target!
Sorry about all of the exclamation marks however I am just stunned at the support that is being shown for this challenge.
Ok, I think I need to gather myself and tell those of you that don’t know about ‘it’ that Create and Craft TV have created.
Here it is!!
It is a bound book of 24 postcards featuring ready-to-colour designs from Stephanie Weightman, Nancy Watt, Sue Balfour, Kevin Wood, Natasha McCarty, Pollyanna Pickering, Sarah Payne, Lou Collins, the Dreamees and me!
The book has been printed on 300gsm Cardstock by paper professionals, Hunkydory – so you know it’s good quality.
There are even six coloured pencils to get colouring with!
I’ve already been having a little fiddle …
The book is available to anyone making a donation to the challenge via one of the following two methods.
- Make a donation via the Create and Craft TV website. To do this, please visit http://www.createandcraft.tv/allcountieschallenge and click on your preferred donation amount. Please note that normal postage and packing costs apply.
- In person. If you see me out and about at a retail event (Crafting Live/Hobbycraft at the NEC/at an All Counties Challenge workshop etc), make a donation into the official collection pot and help yourself to one. This option is subject to me having any with me at the time.
Not fussed about the book but still want to make a donation? You can! Please visit http://www.justgiving.com/allcountieschallenge
Right, I’m off for a lie down in a dark room to simmer down – phew!
Catch you again soon.
