and the winner is………

Hi everyone I hope you are all well – not sure what the weather is meant to be doing where you are, all I keep hearing about is a heatwave. Well down here in Kent, it is warm, overcast and blustery! Yesterday I gave you an insight to “behind the scenes at Clarity”, and over the next few weeks I will introduce you to more of the team. Time really does fly here at Clarity Towers, it feels like only…

Sunday Reflection – Teamwork!

Sunday Reflection – Teamwork!

Evening everyone. Wow! The response to yesterday’s blog is amazing. The guys in the office are going to have fun counting up all the answers. I will let you know the results tomorrow and announce the winner of the £20 Clarity Gift Voucher. I must admit that when I saw the huge response, I had to double-check that I had put £20 and not £200! It’s Sunday evening and I’m sitting here reflecting on the week just gone, and the…

Giveaway – What is…………

Giveaway – What is…………

Evening everyone. I was having a bit of a think today (yeah I know, I shouldn’t really!) Things have changed so much since I joined the Clarity family – stamps, stencils, Groovi and dies. When I joined, Groovi had only been around for 6 months – look at it now! As for the Fresh Cut dies, where did that year go since we launched them? Do I have a favourite? Stamps, stencils and dies were my first love and then…

A bit of a grey day here in Kent – where has the summer gone?This is the view from the car park here at Clarity Towers So yesterday I promised you a bit of a look “behind the scenes at Hochanda” When we arrive at the studios, we already know which set we are going to be in. We are normally in the cellar or the attic and this is the cellar…

Hi everyone I am sat here in the green room at Hochanda, car all packed after today’s TV shows and thought that I would sit here and write today’s blog. No point leaving just yet as I will drive straight into the rush hour traffic. Thank you so much for tuning in to Hochanda earlier today to watch and support the super talented Tina Cox with the launch of her brand new Christmas Layering Plates – they flew out the…

Tina’s Christmas Layering Collection

Good evening everyone, Paul here. I hope you are all well. I have just arrived at my hotel in Peterborough as tomorrow I have the pleasure of crafting alongside the lovely Tina Cox who will be launching some brand new Christmas Layering Groovi Plates. Yes, I know the sun is shining outside and we are 5 months away from the big day, but these plates are a must have! When Tina creates her designs, she crams in so many different…

YouTube Tuesday – Chalky ATCs

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Can it really be Tuesday already? Do you remember a few months back I mentioned some ideas for new Designer Papers inspired by our upcoming holiday to Hawaii? Well on Friday we are off, off, off on our jollydays and it can’t come soon enough. The past 6 months have been pretty crazy. Rather than spend the past few evenings working out what to pack (they do have shops in Hawaii afterall) I have…

Hats, Shoes & Handbags!

Hats, Shoes & Handbags!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Busy day today here. First we recorded some new little Youtube videos for Facebook, then Lou was on HOCHANDA at 12, showcasing these wonderful hats, shoes and handbags, illustrated by our Mel Turner. She did a really interesting demo with fusible fibre – if you can watch back on Hochanda.com it’s well worth it. I love these stamps! They are so excellent to use too. The other BIG NEWS on that TV show is…

What a brilliant Sunday!

What a brilliant Sunday!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in! Happy Sunday! I do hope all is well in your camp? Just this minute landed back at home, and got out of the car to a tumultuous cheer which fairly took the rugby club roof off up the road! I am guessing England won the World Cup in cricket, so I look forward to hearing my Dad tell me all about the game. He does love his cricket. So did you craft along today?…

More play needed…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Woke up in a spin again. Like my Mum always says, this stuff doesn’t wash out of your clothes in one cycle. So I came up to my little den and got with my hands. Because that’s what works for me. Get out of the head and get with the hands. I think that’s maybe why doing pottery is so amazing. You have to concentrate so hard on what you are doing, you forget…
