It’s really easy to condense…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Prepping demos for Friday’s TV shows on The Craft Store has been enjoyable today. I’ve been alone, up in the art room, putting the alphabets through their paces and generally putting together the demo flow, the sequence.

Designed by Cherry Green and Clarity….

What’s New Pussy Cat?

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Apologies for slipping off the radar for a few days. So much going on! Do you know, I had switched the light off last night, and was lying in the dark, trying to get to sleep, and suddenly I blurted “I haven’t done a blog today!”. “Will they sack you?” came the response from the other side of the bed. Nobody likes a smartarse, do they… Anyway, I’m back in the saddle. And what…

We’re so used to rarely welcoming visitors nowadays, seldom even leaving the house, that it’s very easy to let the housework slide, let the ironing pile up, forget to put some lippy on or dress nicely. I saw an…
