We love it when it works!

Greetings from LA at the Create and Craft cocktail party, to celebrate what has been a fantastic launch.


To say it has been exciting is putting it mildly.
The channel have achieved something quite unique,
And yesterday we made history, simulcasting from here to England ! You can still watch the first live Clarity show AND the 2nd show on the US website. Createandcraft.com
One more show to record on Tuesday for America, and then our work here is done.
So today we have a few meetings and business to attend to, but Dave and I would like to thank you all for cheering us on and supporting us thus far!
What a journey!!
I have been saving this outfit for a very special occasion, and tonight was the night! 
We NEVER go to gigs like this! It was all I could do to stop trailing after the waiters with the delicious canapés!!
Have a great day guys!!
Love Barb xxx

  1. Hello Barb, great job to you, Dave and the team (not forgetting Dean), it was fabulous. Well Done! Glad you had a great party to celebrate the C&C and Clarity launch in the US. Lovely picture of you and Dave. Take care. Bx

  2. So pleased it's going so well for you-you and Dave (and the team) work so hard, your success is well deserved. Off to try the dot com site you mentioned. Take care, Jan

  3. Fantastic Barbara! Haven't watched your second programme yet but will do so. I'm glad it has been such a great success which you richly deserve after all the hard work you and the Clarity team put in! A great photo of you and Dave and LOVE the outfit. x

  4. Great job guys and you both scrub up wonderfully. I am so please it went well, but why wouldn't it with your skills and determination. You deserved it and now can relax and enjoy the praise, and maybe a glass of champagne or 2. You have supported each other through an exciting stressful event and have succeeded. I am proud to have met you both and use your products. Enjoy the party. Lots of love

  5. Hi Barbara, soak it all up, you deserve it, both of you, and far more:). You look so happy. And I'm glad you've finally had somewhere deserving of your special outfit.

    Ski Sunday [Graham Bell 😉 – how sad am I!!!!!!] about to finish so I'll see if my internet will let me watch your pre recorded show today

    love Brenda xx
    p.s. hope your products are selling as well in the USA as they do here:)

    1. It seems it's not an internet problem that keeps breaking up the picture and sound watching create and craft, it's their websites, I'm watching BBC iplayer with no problems at all. Does anyone know if there is any other way of watching create and craft shows on the laptop? Thank you, xx

  6. Hi Barbara
    I am so pleased all went well. The shows were brilliant. How lovely to now have time to enjoy a day off. Canapés- yum! And I hope you enjoyed a cocktail or two. Be happy for you and your fab team.

  7. So glad to hear that it has gone well. Recorded yesterdays' show and enjoyed watching it later. Loved the Napa Valley stamps etc (having been there).

    Try to have some time that is your own. (But pinch some ideas from others if appropriate).

    Going to put in an order tomorrow.

    Some sunshine here today – what a difference that makes.


  8. Hi Barb,
    watched the second show as well today. You packed a lot into one hour but it worked well.
    I think you could show everything you wanted.

  9. You both look so happy, and that outfit looks stunning and really suits you and the occasion. We were all thinking of you at Maria's class and working out what stage you were at and sending all our happy wishes to you. We knew it would be a success, you take so much trouble to prepare it all. Congratulations to you and Clarity. xxx Maggie

  22. It is the most amazing feeling and the buzz stays with you for days and days and then you slowly come back down to earth and want to do it all over again {I know this feeling and it is my Happy Place} Enjoy it, for all you can, for you have earned it and you deserve it ~~~ and I love the special outfit! xoxo

  23. So close but so far away, I have been following your for quite awhile now and so love everything you create . There are so many projects I want to do but the shipping cost were too much for me. So it was with great interest I watched the start up of Create and Craft and the world premiere of Clarity stamps. I started to order some Clarity stamp products and to my major disappointment I found I was unable to. They would not accept my Canadian credit card. Foiled again.! So, I will watch your rise to "crafty perfection " from afar and pray that one day you will honour we Canadians with you talents. P.S. Congratulations on your successful Premiere and I truly wish you all success.
