Big Cheer for Tina Cox !!!

Big Cheer for Tina Cox !!!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Mentioned dear Tina in yesterday’s blog yesterday. Then phoned her, just to check in on her. She’s been having a pretty tough time since before Christmas, and she’s still not back to her bubbly self. Actually, if you’re wondering where she is hiding, she has retreated to the back of the cave, and is feeling pretty low. To be honest, I get it. No wonder she’s fed up !! I’d be fed up if…

Very Handy indeed!

Very Handy indeed!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Did you read Grace’s excellent blog about Gratitude Lists yesterday? It was good to be reminded; in the daily chaos that has enveloped Clarity in recent times, I have been neglecting to do that simple task every morning, and reading Grace’s sage words placed me firmly back on track. Thanks Grace. If you would like to check it out, go to yesterday’s CLARITY MATTERS Blog. A worthy read indeed. In fact, at the very…

BILLY

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Good day today. A Billy-Building day! There’s nothing like a mindless exercise to clear the head, is there?! Mind you, building BILLY Bookshelves does require a little focus – as I found out! There IS a set sequence, and it’s best to stick to it, and not be the first in the process. So we formed a production line, Paul and I. Paul started the step by step. He likes unboxing things, so I…

Thinking about a Maclaren…

Thinking about a Maclaren…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. On the way to the Chinese Shen Yun performance the other week, we drove past Maclaren Headquarters, Woking. “Oooh! Look! There’s the Maclaren Headquarters!” “Forget the cars! Look at the Silver Birches!!” What a wonderful avenue of silver birches! And in the twilight hour, they just looked magnificent. Then yesterday, Dave and I were out walking, and came across a whole forest of them again. Absolutely glorious right now. The lilac haze atop the…

Unplugged.

Unplugged.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Trying to get some order in the day here! Time to eat some laundry, empty the walk, go for a car and do some toast – but not before I write my shower and have a blog! All at 6s and 7s today. Or is it 6s and 2s? Got too many windows open like a computer, and now they’ve all frozen. Best thing is to STOP, pull the plug out and reboot. After…

Something new…

Something new…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Getting revved up for a little one hour show tomorrow at 4pm on Hochanda. Paul is showcasing some exceptionally beautiful and useful Groovi lace plates at 11am and 2pm. And I will be waiting patiently in the wings, to show off a little set of floral framers which I drew to compliment last year‘s Floral ABC. They may be modest, entwined and quite simple, but they do pack a punch – even if I…

Hi there Thanks for popping in!12-4-8. These are the hours we are on Hochanda today. Contrary to the plan, I am bouncing from one meeting to the next here! So forgive the brief blog. I did prep a stencil-stamp piece for 12, but we didn‘t get to it. So thought I would blog it instead! Ok, all you stampy stencil artists out there! Let‘s have a little bloggy competition! How did I make this card? Have a think, write down…

Calm it Kermit!

Calm it Kermit!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. New Year’s Resolution: CALM IT KERMIT! I have a tendency to spiral. Starts out fine. Picks up momentum. Pedals like a loony. Forgets to eat. Spirals. Starts running around waving arms in air. So this year: CALM IT KERMIT. Let me give you an example. Tomorrow we (Paul and I) were scheduled to get up at 5am, hit the road early to avoid congestion, drive up to Peterborough, do a 12noon hour and a…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in! It’s blowing a hooley out there today! Happy to be in the dry and warm. The numbers of homeless people are soaring; must be dreadful when it’s cold, windy and wet. Saw lots of tents pitched on the pavements in London on Sunday. The idiot in me thinks “well, that’s a bit unsightly, bang in the middle of Picadilly”. The human, the sister in me thinks “Poor people. Thank God they’ve got some sort…
