Sunday 3pm-5pm – so much to be scene!

Sunday 3pm-5pm – so much to be scene!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Sunday’s Clarity TV Show on Create & Craft is right up my street! We’ve been working on these masks and stamps for a while now, and I love ‘em! Landscapes and Leaves – what a fabulous combination! I have always maintained that our masks – pound for pound/dollar for dollar/hour for hour – are such superb creative value for money. And the new Build-a-Scene masks are certainly that! I have been prepping for the…

Gray Friday Sale – 2 more days… Can we tempt you?

Gray Friday Sale – 2 more days… Can we tempt you?

Hi there Happy Sunday! It’s all systems go at Clarity! The Gray Friday Sale Weekend is proving rather popular. Thank you so much for shopping with us! With all the national economic upheaval of late, we were in two minds as to how this sale would run. Paul and I were apprehensive; we thought it would be much slower than in past years. Dave was in the other camp. He said it would be busier than ever. Dave was right….

Chapter 4…

Chapter 4…

Moving on with our Once upon a time at Clarity, we come to the 4th Chapter in our story: Fresh Cut Dies. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin… It was 2018, and the Groovi Explosion was happening. We were spinning plates and doing loads of TV shows, and just generally chasing our tails. Stamps were on the backburner because we just couldn’t keep up with design and production, and we were well and truly on the treadmill. Here…

Chapter 3 ? Groovi Baby!

Chapter 3 ? Groovi Baby!

Hi there The year was 2015, and we were flying high. Claritystamps and stencils were selling very well, our Create & Craft TV shows were getting busier, and we were going like the clappers! Our new website was looking good, and we were certainly moving online. We had never had a bricks and mortar shop; we had always been a mail order company, and we have had a website / online shop for as long as I can remember back!…

Chapter 2 – After Stamps came Stencils…

Chapter 2 – After Stamps came Stencils…

Hi there. The story continues. We launched our Claritystamp range on telly in about 2008 – and that’s when things really took off. Our little corner stamps and pattern-building tricks proved very popular. It was something new to TV, and folks loved the way we presented. So we moved out of the portacabin in the garden and into an industrial unit on a farm. It was the Old Pig Shed!! Our team grew then, to keep up with orders. Oh…

Once upon a time…

Once upon a time…

about 30 years ago, I had a bright idea…. Hi there. Thanks for popping in. In the run up to the GRAY FRIDAY SALE at Clarity (We leave Black Friday to the rest of the world), I thought I’d use these 4 days to tell you how we evolved in the the Claritycrafts Company that we are today. It was the early ’90’s, the kids were nippers, and we lived in Northern California. My Brother Steve and I were already…

…Warm Woollen Mittens…

…Warm Woollen Mittens…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Got a torch?! It gets dark so much earlier now, as we edge our way through November, doesn’t it? Much colder too. Whilst our British Autumn colours are beautifully breathtaking, the damp chill that accompanies this month is less pleasant. The torrential rains down here in the Southeast have slowed down for today at least, so Mother Earth can absorb some of the floodwaters. It’s definitely time to put away those flip flops and…

A Perfect Storm.

A Perfect Storm.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s raining cats and dogs outside, so I’m very glad to have moved my Mac into the house. Irony of ironies, I’m now able to keep our Erik company in the dining roon, because that is where I have taken up Techy residence, and where he now has to spend the next month, in a large cage, to let his broken leg heal. Pink splint?! He’ll never live it down! Boy oh boy. But…
