Sorry I’m so late!
Ask me how things are shaping up for Ally Pally
and the HOCHANDA TV Show on Saturday –
I dare you!!
No, not really.
Demos done for the 1pm show.
The only problem is my neck; it seems to be revolting.
Overdone it and now it’s on strike.
Which is just great before a two-day, mental busy exhibition.
So I’ve made an executive decision : no demonstrating at the show.
Just the TV hour, and other than that, I’m going to mingle with my friends and customers, and have some fun.
I have pedalled away at that show all day every day
for as long as I can think back,
so this weekend I am going to take a back seat,
and let Paul pedal!
Here’s one of the demos I have planned for our Japanese TV hour
which is being streamed live at 1pm.
I have a feeling there’s going to be levity and audience interaction, so doubt that I will get to this one….
3 circles and a frame on blue/teal coloured parchment.
Where can you get this coloured parchment?
Will we have some at Ally Pally?
Has the Pope got a balcony???
We have got 5 different colourways – bright and pastel:
20 x A5 in a pack.
It’s exactly the same parchment quality as our regular,
except it is saturated with colour, but
– and here’s the really cool part –
ONLY ON ONE SIDE !
What this means is that when you use the colour saturated side at the back, the lineart is still beautifully white at the front!
We will load it onto our website tomorrow
and take it to the London show too.
Carp in the bubbles, Netting round the outside.
These plates are fabulous.
Colour in fish with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Pen.
They’re on the water. Will be here soon.
Highlight the carp with Peacock Feathers.
Colour in the netting with Evergreen Bough
When you flip it to the front and overlay it on a
Coated Clarity Card splashy background…
… it really hits the spot.
See how laying a yellow/green sheet underneath
transforms the blue?
Just plain white underneath?
Nope, it needs a little more funk than that!!
Use one of our new punches
to catch the edge of the yellow/green parchment –
or other matching colour paper is maybe cheaper!
Hope you like it…
Look at the state of this room !!!!!!!!!!!!
Ahh! There are my glasses!
We need a break – and preferably not my neck!!!
Yesterday, I was working with my brother in the warehouse.
“Looking forward to our holiday, Barb?” he asked.
“Can’t bloody wait,” I replied. “You?”
“47 days!” he shot back in a flash.
And while we cracked up laughing, he added, “46 tomorrow.”
“But who’s counting, eh…”
And then my friends,
we will be swimming in the Pacific Ocean with the little fishies.
White sand, blue water, warm sun – and pineapples.
WE, Dave Steve and I, are set for the road-trip of a lifetime….
It’s what makes all the long hours and late nights worth it.
45 days tomorrow!
But for now I have to keep my eye on the weekend ball.
Early start, set-up day tomorrow.
We are taking ONLY Clarity Products this time.
I have a feeling the show will be very busy,
and we think it is best to keep the stand as uncluttered as possible.
We can take orders there for anything which didn’t go on the van, can’t we?
We’ve got such a large selection of stencils, stamps and Groovi now, we could have 3 stands!! NOT a chance.
Don’t forget to go online and get your coloured parchment this weekend, or pick it up at the show.
The one-sided saturation is ace.
The one-sided saturation is ace.
Love and Hugs,
