A Dotty Day

A Dotty Day

Hello there. Friday’s blog a private peek. Well what a week! Oh what a week! Way too much pressure for this little head; trying to put a HUGE shipment to bed.  Boxes and labels, bags and stencils; stamps and card, brushes and pencils. If Santa had seen our own Clarity Elves wrapping and packing, and emptying the shelves,  their names and phone numbers he’d surely remember –  and ask them to work for him in December! By Wednesday I thought…

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by on this Monday morning. Monday’s blog is Trees & Flowers,  so I have decided to play with one of the best trees  in the Claritree Collection: The Pear Tree.
