So how was it for you?

So this week saw the fourth ever #GBHour event and once again we were thrown in the slammer (Twitter jail).

Another lively, hectic and fast moving event with loads of old and new faces getting involved with some Great British networking fun.

This week #GBHour was sponsored by the amazing Kay Patterson @blurtsmum Founder UK Project Isabella Graphic Workshop who provided some superb and very entertaining pics for all to enjoy such as this one;

Last week during #GBHour we asked you all to get involved with plugging your own business as well as retweeting our tweets and each others. After the event we chose @blurtsmum as our winners and very well deserved it was.

Thanks to Kay and the rest of you in only the third week of #GBHour, we managed to get trending as high as number 5 in the UK so thanks to every one of you for that. Can we better it this week? If Andy is on Centre court between 4-5pm then maybe not but we’ll give it a good go right?

Thanks for supplying the Project Isabella logo Kay and lets hear a little about you.

Project Isabella

Kay Patterson, @blurtsmum is the Founder of Project Isabella Graphic Workshop http://projectisabella.com which is a startup business that develops graphics and digital art resources for others to use in commercial or personal ventures. Use is allowed on Print on Demand stores (such as Zazzle, Cafepress) which sets her apart from many other clip art suppliers but the business really pushes the boundaries in graphic marketing by offering free promotion to products created using their graphics and the stores that they are in, be it online or offline.

Project Isabella has developed and is developing a number of unique services which certainly need investigating by those who create handmade products. One of these is the ability to make commercial digital art products from images of handmade jewellery. This is a unique service and in early days of development but clearly something Kay herself is extremely enthusiastic about. Kay has recently found success in another twitter chat situation where she has sourced a jewellery collaboration in @BabylonBlu . Twitter chat, can and does work for business. You can learn more about Kay at her personal blog Impromptu Art http://kaypatterson.blogspot.com where she is undertaking a 30 Blog Challenge set by @_PVBOnline, another business contact she sourced through Twitter – it all goes on here at Twitter!
We know for a fact Kay is looking forward to the #GBhour and she has even made some pictures to prove it
