Thanks for joining me here today.
And thanks for supporting the Gray Friday Sale too!
Oh boy oh boy oh boy.
Did we expect such a response? Noooooooo!
Are we rising to the challenge? Yesssssssss!
First thing we did was order more packaging boxes!
Next thing was get the kettle on and make a plan.
So while the Clarity Elves are jumping around filling your orders,
I am here to tell you we are on it like a car bonnet!
The thing is, we had a blanket sale.
In other words, pretty much EVERYTHING.
Not just selected items which we had a load of, and which we wanted to shift.
I do wish other stores had done that. I personally probably would have spent plenty if I had been able to buy what I WANTED instead of what they wanted me to.
In actual fact, I didn’t bother at all.
We also said that we wouldn’t sell out, that we would make things fresh if they ran out. So there was no scramble, no fear of a sell out either.
And we are surprised it went so well!
Please do us a favour.
Just leave us to get on with it and get the parcels out to you. The more phone calls we get chasing orders, the more time we waste tracking orders, the longer everything takes.
So back to the blog for me.
I have been making a plan for the Clarity Retreats next year.
Dates are in. Hall and Room Reservations are in.
If you are in the Clarity Clubs, look out for the next Newsletter in December… First come, first served this year.
There you go!! Another good reason to join the Clubs!
Club Members go first. It is fair, don’t you agree?
Our annual 2-day retreat in July is an all round arty, inky, painty, stampy, printy retreat, with a Groovi session included.
Brilliant fun, even if I say so myself, An opportunity to come away to Crowborough for a couple of days and just get creative with a bunch of like-minded people.
I teach this one myself, and Paul always helps me.
I have been running these for 20 years; I think folks enjoy them…
So many lovely people!
It really is special.
A right old hive of activity!
Here’s Rosie, mastering the art of printing too.
I love that the Parchment experts want to learn what we do.
Here we see Linda Williams getting to grips with the Gelpress,
with Jane Telford by her side, helping her….
Speaking of Linda Williams,
GUESS WHO’S ON TELLY ON SUNDAY,
LAUNCHING HER NEW BOOK ?
Not to be missed!!!!!
It has taken me months to talk her into it!
And the book? Well, it’s blimming amazing.
6pm HOCHANDA SUNDAY
AND NOW FOR SOMETHING NEW!
Next year, we are introducing a brand new retreat in March – just for Groovi and Parchment. Linda Williams, Rosie Cottrell, Paul and I will be teaching for two days at the Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells. Different skill levels in different rooms. All very exciting.
I just feel that there is a real desire among Groovi fans to learn more about parching. And there is another huge group of people who want to get into Groovi, but feel they have missed the train.
So we will have a real
beginner’s group at that retreat too.
Anyway, that’s what I’m doing now.
Planning ahead again.
You have to, you see.
These things require loads of planning and thinking!
Love & Hugs,
