Thanks for popping in.
Wednesday’s blog – when we speak of why we craft – not just what we craft.
I’m supposed to be having a week off, having overdone it at the NEC, but it’s not that easy for this old bird to switch off.
Been thinking about it.
It isn’t a control issue. I’ve gone over that in my head.
It isn’t an inability to delegate – I am very, very good at that.
It’s not about money either.
It’s simply an inability to stop thinking thinking thinking about work-related things.
I guess I care.
It’s that simple.
Since I don’t seem able to reduce the number of hours I think about the business, what I CAN try is to increase the number of hours I think about something else. This may seem obvious to you, but when you’re caught in the Wurka-Hollick trap, it isn’t that simple.
Since there are only a finite number of hours available in the day, perhaps I should tackle that end. If I listen to a book that really works, because it requires my undivided attention. I cannot think about anything else. When I read a book, my mind wanders, but for some reason it stays focussed on the earplug version of the same book.
Then there are the Wedding Invitations to write, and the Wedding Favours to make and the beds to change and the ironing to do and the neighbour to strangle – but at least none of that is work-related..
G A G G !!!!!
(GET A GRIP GRAY!)
Anyway, before I go and start ticking things off my non-work-related list, let me tell you about these beautiful pieces of artwork below!
At 6pm this evening, our Rosie will be launching a fabulous collection of new Groovi plates at a very special price on the ODS (One Day Special). They’re all available online already, but I would suggest you hang on to buy until after 6pm, because the prices don’t drop till then.
The über-talented Mel has illustrated some wonderful new rounds for us:
Sprites and Fairies
There’s nothing like them! The way that Mel has woven trees, woods and moons into the background is sublime.
And don’t forget: the centres can be swapped out, the individual elements can be called on. These really are ingenious.

There’s a brilliant background plate included with the Sprites too,
Fishermen and Rowboats
Here’s a super collection for Men. Again, all completely interchangeable with the outer framers.
The California landscapes are dear to my heart. When the kids were small, this is where we lived.
The Lone Cypress on the 17-mile drive at Pebble Beach
The Napa Valley
Obviously, these are simply divine landscape plates;
they could be anywhere you like!
So there you have it.
10 x A5 square
Hope you can pop in to see Rosie work her magic on HOCHANDA at 6pm launch.
I have a feeling these little beauties will fly…
Love & Hugs,
