Thanks for joining me on this overcast, cloudy day.
Just ticking a few boxes for the TV shows on HOCHANDA tomorrow. Demo Boxes packed, tick. Art samples packed, tick.
Producer notes written and photocopied, tick.
That’s another little hidden job which always needs doing, you see.
When I do a demo, I list absolutely everything I am going to use, including product codes. I write down what I’m going to do, how long it’s going to take, which demos and in what order.
The producers have to jump from one show to the next, and there is very little time for them to prepare. So it’s in my interest and theirs, and it helps the overall flow of the show if the producer has a ready tailored list of what to go to and what to flag up. I have always done this, right from the first TV show on Create & Craft! I think it started as a prop for me, so I knew what I was doing! Like a Linus blanket. And it seemed to make the TV team very happy too, so it’s par for the course nowadays.
The weather’s not great is it? Which is pants for the nation, but at least more people will be indoors and watching (I hope!!)
Remember the beautiful Groovi Rounds which Rosie launched recently? Well, due to popular demand – here they are as stamps.
And not just any old stamps. These are the superb super fineline Claritystamps we have reently developed.
You now get the ultra-fine line and intricate detail of a red rubber stamp, but with the added transparency factor. Bingo!!
What a joy to use these stamps are.
They are available as trios, too.
We have the fairies…
the California Landscapes…
…and the perfect for mens’ cards Boating trio
All illustrated by our clever Mel Turner, who is just brilliant.
Here are a few lovely art samples which have been created by the Clever Clarity Team:
Thank you, lovely team!
What a lot of time and work you put into these art pieces!
The whole TV process is very, very time consuming. So much effort goes into one show! From conceptualization, to planning, to design, to production, to marketing – it is massive actually. It’s all about communication too. I am involved in the first instance, ie. what we’re doing when. And then I pretty much hand over the TV reins to the various departments, and they run with the plan. Just once a month I do a little dance on the telly, but the rest is out of my hands. There’s a whole Clarity Cabaret nowadays!
So I shall say it one more time:
Teamwork makes the dream work.
Time to go and pack my outfit.
Love & Hugs,
