Whew! What a busy season... As you may have noticed in the last post, we were given the amazing opportunity to place our existing stock in Puffin Design Studios

I'm going to share some of those product pics here today, and a few  recently refurbished drums from our personal pile of musical noise makers too! - Amazing art work was done by my talented husband Dave. The products we have for sale will remain in the local art studio for another 3 weeks or so before they change out stock. This has been a fun experience, which we are grateful for, and hope those of you locally have a chance to drop in to the studios soon.

But... before I get into those pics - I do want to share some great news... Our website is live! !!!!! yay!!!!

 Visit us at http://BrummetMedia.ca


Yup, I am excited. There is a lot of work to be done on the website content, links, etc. in time for our business "re-launch" around mid-January. In the meantime, we are welcoming networking opportunities.


Ok, now to share the pics of the projects we've worked on in the last 6-7 weeks...

Get Ready for our launch!!



Hello Everyone!

Holiday season upon us and we are sooooooooo excited! lol We are just about to re-launch our business under the new name: Brummet Media Group.

Just as we are coming to the launch, we are hearing from old and new drum students who must have caught the excitement vibe (ha ha) and what great timing!

The new website will be launched in a few days, and as you can see we are about to get this blog going again. Get ready for networking ! woo hoo!

By the way - we are really super excited to announce a new opportunity locally. We have now arranged to work with a local design studio who will be stocking our products as they come available. We may be holding some of our larger sized group workshops there too. I hope you have time to drop by this store - they are super supportive of local talent and seem to be really great people. Here's the post I put up on local FaceBook groups:

Check out our new products now offered at https://www.facebook.com/puffindesign.ca/ You'll find ornaments for xmas, drum lesson CD's, custom art pipe drums, Drums from Panama, Africa, East India... a beautiful didgeridoo and more ...watch for more of our product coming to the Puffin Design store in a few days! (Located just a few doors uphill, North of Jimmy's Pub) Puffin Design is located at: 137-15th Ave N

 

So - when you are reading this notice, be sure to keep making notes on possible article ideas, poetry you might want to submit, events you might want us to celebrate on the blog and other networking opportunities not listed here. You know us - we love networking and are looking forward to reconnecting with everyone!
