Sold out in 37 minutes – WOW!

Sold out in 37 minutes – WOW!

Hi there,
Thanks for popping in.
Vhilst ve vend our merry vay to the Trade Show in Frankfurt, 
Maria has been launching a superb Celtic collection of Groovi Plates and the brand new XL Groovi Plate Mate, to house all those larger plates.

We knew you’d like them, but we didn’t know how much. SOLD OUT in 37 mins! WOW! Thank you so much. More stock has been added to the show, so let’s see how long that lasts (looks like brother Steve’s on permanent nights again). 

So, here’s a little gallery of wonderful art samples from our Groovi Design team extraordinaire… These samples didn’t get a chance for the airing they deserved, but I hope you can enjoy them here, now.

Beautiful Samples!
I hope you have had time to tune in to Maria.
She will be on today, at 9am 1pm and 5pm.
And you can certainly watch her on Hochanda Catch-up.
Dave and I binged on the new Sky series BRITTANIA this week, so these Groovi Celtic designs couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time for me! 
But now we are in the Fatherland for a week, 
so expect a travelog!
Love & Hugs

  1. Crikey well done Maria. Hope your trip goes well – I'm waiting for the roofer, as my skylight blew out in the wind and storm yesterday. Might have to do some crafting if I'm stuck indoors all day! Always try to find a positive in any situation x

  2. No surprise there then Barbara, I mean in having a sell out, but 39 mins must be a record, even for you. Congratulations, well done Maria! Enjoy your trip to

  3. Hi bloggy friends, Hope you are all well. What awful weather we've been having, at least not snow for us, but very wet and windy. Still suffering with sciatica but managing to do some cardmaking which helps take my mind off it. Love and hugs

    1. Hi Pam,
      Sorry to hear that you're still suffering with your sciatica, but good to hear you've been managing to do some crafting. Love and hugs All son xxxx

    2. Second attempt at a comment here Pam – the first one disappeared! Sorry to hear that you are suffering with your back, I really do hope that they can improve things for you. Love and hugs, Gilly xxx

  4. The samples from the design team are beautiful, as always it is amazing how they have all used the same plates but created so many different designs. look forward to hearing about your trip.

  5. I missed the show yesterday, but not surprised they sold out, they are stunning, especially the alphabets (love the extra little one) But I came here to tell you thanks for keeping them in stock at Clarity HQ, so I knew I could order from there. The examples are beautiful.

  6. No surprises that it sold out as it is beautiful as are the design team samples. Once I start my new job next month, it is on my must have list.
    Hubbie and I have also been watching Britannia, and really enjoying it. Have you watched Outlander yet? I have been reading the books since the early 90s and have enjoyed watching it come to life on the screen. A lot of the filming is done a bout 8 miles from the house. I am eagerly awaiting the release of the next book.

    1. Hi Fiona,
      Love the Outlander books and tv series. I'm reading the books again and I've also bought the second book as as audible one – thought it would be good for hospital. Jamie Fraser is quite easy on the eye don't you think?! Good luck with your new job. Love and hugs Alison xxx

  7. Lovely designs and samples. I'm not surprised they sold out so quickly, sadly I have to reign in spending for a while what with Christmas and going away with the family and a new laptop. Also just paid a large deposit for a family holiday in August. I have loads of things that I haven't used from the design club mailings plus a pristine Gelli plate so I have plenty to keep me busy.
    Looking forward to hearing about your adventures next week, I hope all goes well xx

    1. Hi Chris,
      Hope you're ok. I've got loads of club goodies that I haven't used yet as well but I did manage to get the ODS. Glad you've got your holiday booked ( anywhere nice?) Sending love and hugs, Alison xxx

  8. Hello Barb, what beautiful and stunning examples of how to use these new plates from the team. Will have to watch on catch up, as Celtic symbols etc are very close to our hearts at home, and we even had it at our wedding. Enjoy Frankfurt. Take care all. Bx

  9. Hi Barb,
    Congratulations on not one but two sellouts! Absolutely brilliant! I thought Maria did really well on the two shows I saw today (9 & 1) . The look on her face when Hayley was giving the stock updates was a picture bless her! Samples are gorgeous, not one I don't love. Have a good time in Germany. Love and hugs Alison xxx

    1. Hi bloggy friends,
      Hope everyone is ok. Quite a nice day here today until about 3pm when it started raining. At least it hasn't been as windy today. Did manage to get our swimming gear dried outside for a change. Been trying another page of Linda William's book today without a lot of success! I do find it quite difficult to pierce through the paper, but I'm going to try some of the tips Linda Page gave me on Sunday to see if they help. Having a photography day tomorrow probably along the Quayside at Newcastle ( although I might just go round the shops). Sending love and hugs to you all, Alison xxx

    2. Hi Alison – sounds like you have been busy. I am sure that you will sort it, with practice. I am way behind you – but Neill was very pleased with his birthday card. No snipping involved! Have a good day tomorrow – love and hugs, Gilly xxx

  10. Fantastic collection, superb shows and wowzers amazing samples from the DT, wonderful inspiration, I especially love the Alphabet plates, great idea to have the two sizes.
    We're watching Britannia too, the druids are bizarre, their large eyes reminds me when I was younger and I had to go to the opticians, they put drops in my eyes to dilate the pupils, scary lol.
    Hope all goes well on your business trip xx

  11. Hi Barbara
    Congratulations on the sell out, I hope there are a few snacks around to keep Steve going during the night. I caught snipets of the shows today as I was dashing in and out. The design team samples are beautiful and deserve their day on the blog. Those letters are beautiful, I'm sitting on my hands at the moment but maybe next month they might come my way! Have a lovely time in Frankfurt.
    Love Diane xxxx

  12. Well done on yet another sell-out! Fabulous plates and amazing DT samples. So nice to be able to look at them on the blog. Have a great time in Frankfurt – we look forward to hearing how it goes. Love and hugs, Gilly xxx

    1. Hi bloggy friends – didn't they go well! I have had to put them onto my wishlist for the moment, although I do really want the plate mate. I just might have to order that soon!! Neill and I had a great time with our friends last night. Our friend had cooked 4 (tiny) starters and the main course was a dressed salmon with prawns, caramelised onions and vegetables. It was amazing – she is such a good cook and she really enjoys doing it too. Very lucky to have such amazing friends. Love and hugs, Gilly xxx

    2. Hi Gilly,
      Oh I'm so pleased that you and Neill had such a good time. The meal sounds lovely – I know Dave would've loved it ( I'm not a fish lover but I appreciate the cooking) . It is lovely to have good friends. I know I have appreciated mine since I had my accident – you do find out who real friends are! Love hugs to you both, Alison xxxx

  13. Hi Barbara, I really have fallen for the new collection, its just stunning. Maria was amazing, I actually sent in a photo of my very 1st completed project which was shown on air on the 8pm show. Maria gave me such a huge confidence boost, I actually recorded the shows as always. My partner Kevin was watching football whilst the shows was on and by time I got to show him my project had been shown on TV along with amazing comments, there was a 2nd sell out – I was gutted as was Kev for not being able to get the offer in time. I have been treated to the light pad though so things aren't to bad lol. Maria also mentioned me again whilst showing the pink embossing mat, I'd not thought about it before, but when I am using the black mat for white work this is when sometimes I may go through the parchment, so I'm thinking I might be heavy handed and the pink mat maybe the next investment. Do you think you may do another special on the A4 guide plate along with Celtic plates as they proved so popular, the flexie payment is my best friend as many others I'm on a budget so spreading the cost over 2 months makes the collections more affordable for me, if only Clarity could do this lol, awh if be skint but surrounded with every groovi plate made. Sorry for waffling on with myself. Great work by everyone, enjoy Frankfurt xxxxx
