Happy Friday to you!
Blimey! You weren’t kidding when you said you wanted an indexing system for your Groovi Plates!
Talk about order online! Those young people who think we more mature women don’t know how to navigate their way around a website are sooooooooo wrong !!!!
Same goes for the Half-Price Member’s Sale which has been going on all month until the end of February. Our phones went down most of this week because of flooding somewhere down the road.
“Oh No!!” we exclaimed, “Quel Calamity!”
Not even a little bit.
Once our lovely Jeannine realised you all had an -ology in Web-shopping, she was actually able to get some work done in the office because the phones weren’t ringing off the hook!
Anyway, enough rambling.
Very happy to report that the response our Clarity focus back on stamps and stencils since the start of this year has been exceptional and very heartening. I had been so worried that I had lost all my old stampy mates. Nope. You are back with a vengeance – and have brought lots of new friends along, too.
Now of course, I am beginning to fret because I haven’t blogged any Groovi parchment projects for weeks!
The thing is, stamping, mixed media, Gelpress, stencils, grunge – this kind of art is so much faster to create.
Well, the way I do it, it is!!
See? Took longer to wash the stencil than make this print.
And it really is my cup of tea.
This little business of ours is growing and getting busier week on week, and I am struggling to find the time to do a step by step Groovi Parchy Project.
So, the inner voice spake,
MAKE TIME. MAKE A PLAN.
And she did.
She cleared a space, a quiet place by a window, and she dedicated it to her parchment work.
She got Dave to hang clips on the wall,
so that she could work on several pieces at various stages, and they would hang about, patiently waiting for her to come back…
And she gathered all the essential parching things around her, so she wouldn’t waste hours needlessly looking for stuff.
She made a decision to do an hour every single morning,
before she went to the office.
Like a kind of Groovi Meditation.
And then she devised a Bloggy Plan..
Ready for this one?
Every week, I will pick something, a new parching technique which I would like to master.
From Monday to Friday, a day at a time, I will prepare a piece,
a photo step by step as I always do. This will allow the parchment to rest between applications, and will allow me to go to work!
Then at the weekend, probably on Saturday, I will post the week’s stages and finished piece, with a really good bloggy offer and a giveaway – some Groovi Blog Candy.
Haven’t done that for a while either.
I could even tell you what the next week’s lesson will be, so we can work together, and you can set yourself the same challenge.
What do you think, oh Parching comrades?
It would be interesting to see what we all come up with!
Anyway, time to stop for today.
Do let me know what you think of this idea.
It will certainly help me improve my parching skills!
An hour every day?!? Blimey!
I may even be able to take an exam one day.
Then I will be a real parcher.
Because apparently, until you take an exam, you’re not.
A real parcher, that is.
Those of you who are real parchers,
who are qualified and
who have passed all their exams and everything,
Good for you!
Because I am not, I haven’t and I dare say I never will.
Love & Hugs,
