Happy May Day!
Thanks for joining me today.
The love bird is in residence, the sun is out,
Dave has stopped the leak from the bedroom radiator (don’t ask),
and I have come upstairs to my little sanctum to chat to you.
I’m always a little anxious before a TV weekend,
even so much as a week in advance! It’s the way I’m wired.
I’m sure anxiety and excitement are nearly the same thing, just from a different angle though, don’t you? They certainly seem to me to have the same symptoms, but I’d much rather be excited –
so let’s get excited!
The other way I can calm myself down is to get organised !
So here I is, making a plan !
Really enjoyable though;
having a little trip down memory lane at the same time!
There is so much to consider, so much to prepare,
so much to remember.
Next Sunday at 8pm, as always on the first Sunday of the month,
I shall be launching a One Day Special.
Last month, if you recall, it was those super cool outline stamps with the miniatures which sold out: the stag, the toadstool, the trees, the bird and there was one other….ah yes – the leaf.
Then, while I was away on holiday,
Rosie did another One Day Special: The Groovi O Framers.
That was also a sell out:
What’s next? Well, this one is a biggie.
We’ve been working on this since Christmas, and it is
something particularly dear to my heart.
It’s the entire Nursery Rhyme ABC in Groovi Plates,
and we’ve even published a beautiful little ii-book
with the verses to go with it.
(ii = Ideas and Inspiration)
If you have the time or the inclination, go back to the blog I wrote on 12th November, 2013. It will shed some light on why this Victorian ABC is so important to me.
Not only because I illustrated the letters and wrote a fair few of the verses myself. No, no. It symbolises the very foundation of Clarity. Everything else stems from this.
You may recognise the two nippers in the poster below. Yep. Grace and Mark.
We decided it was T for Time to transform those illustrations
into Groovi parchment art.
