Thanks for popping in.
Thanks also for reading every day, if you do,
thereby giving me a reason to blog every day.
1,552 consecutive daily posts.
In real time, that means I have written a blog every day since
13th October 2013.
Blimey! How times flies!!!
That’s substantial! And so much has happened in that time,
at a personal AND global level!
From Obama to Trump,
From Europe to Brexit,
From Create & Craft to Hochanda
(hahaha. Nothing like a list for getting things in perspective!)
You just have to dip into past blogs to be reminded..
I guess that this blog is a bit like a public diary mixed with a journal, isn’t it? Bit of art, bit of heart.
The last year has been a good one for our business.
We have grafted and grown, bought Pergamano and expanded, and the New Year is looking very bright too. Back on the stamp trail for me mind; looking forward to that.
Dare I admit that on a few occasions I got quite overwhelmed and lost my way. The worm of doubt crept in and messed with my mind, as it does from time to time. There’s just so much to think about, to consider, to defend. So thank goodness for good people, who can take the reins and guide the ship until the fog clears.
Clarity may only be a little UK-based boutique craft company,
but it’s also a cracking little family business, and a lot of other families have come to rely on it for a living.
I would like to think that we spread good creative energy all year round, too. Thousands of loyal customers – your good selves included – will surely nod in agreement.
We aren’t perfect either; there’s always room for improvement, but we do try very, very hard to do the next right thing, to stay in our lane and to dare to be different.
Some new creative people also joined the team this year; they have been instrumental in opening new doors and hatching new plans. The family is growing!
In a nutshell, we are just a bunch of friendly people who really enjoy working together to design and produce things which you in turn can use to bring out the artist in you.
TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK.
And as long as I think that this blog is important to YOU, and that you get something out of it, I shall keep going.
On behalf of the Clarity Family, I would like to thank you for your loyal custom, friendship and support throughout 2017,
and wish you and yours a healthy, happy 2018,
filled with peace and creativity.
Love & Hugs,
