Thanks for popping in.
Sunday morning in the Big Apple.
The sun is shining, and I think I will go a-walking,
get some fresh air and do some people watching –
before Grace gets up!
This jet lag is a funny old thing.
The body clock just doesn’t want to adjust to the hour clock this visit, so I’m just going with it.
We’re 5 hours behind you here.
I just rang Dave, who was sitting in a Homebase carpark, chuckling away at some bloke trying to squeeeeeze a door – a proper door – into a little Micra.
You can imagine the conversation.
“So how’s Grace? He’s never going to get that in.” chuckle chuckle
“Make the most of the sunshine and your time with her. He won’t be able to change gears!” chuckle chuckle.
“Well, blow me. He’s done it. Sliding in sideways now”
Changing the subject, do you subscribe to any magazines?
I write for an English mag every month actually. Have done for years.
It’s a general cardmaking mag (clue’s in the name, I guess!)
Here’s a very simple project I did this month, using Jayne Nestorenko’s dahlias…
And look who else is in this month, doing a 3-part series:
None other than our Maria!
The editor, Sienna, is a lovely woman.
American. A real class act.
And to round it off, here’s another good friend of mine, Leonie, who also writes for them every month.
So you see, I’m in good company.
Check it out – it is one of the better ones – especially for us cardmakers.
Another option is our own Clarity Clubs.
Groovi, Stamp, Stencil.
Pick one, pick two, pick all three.
You get an actual plate, stamp and stencil every month, plus lots of other benefits, like 10-15% discount on all your orders.
And you can break the payments down into monthly installments too. In other words, join all 3 clubs for £15 per month, thereby becoming a Diamond Member, and get 15% off all your Clarity purchases from Clarity.

Time for breakfast, methinks.
How does bagels with cream cheese and tomato sound?
Yesterday I was in a supermarket, buying a few bits,
Jelly, icecream, strawberries, soft bread etc for the patient,
and I asked somebody who worked in the store,
“Excuse me, where can I find the butter?”
He looked at me blankly.
“Butta?” he asked.
So I put on my best New York dialect.
“Buttr” I attempted.
Still no joy.
I decided he looked Hispanic.
“Ah, bueno! Mantequilla!”
Then he told me in really fast Spanish where to locate said mantequilla.
And all those years of studying Spanish finally paid off.
A pocket dictionary would have been a lot cheaper. But then again, I wouldn’t have understood the answer, would I ?!
Ah. Grace is up.
Maybe she fancies a bagel too….
Have a great Sunday,
Love & hugs,
