Good of you to drop in.
Didn’t Tina do a cracking job on TV today?! What a sell out star! She does make me laugh, too. Wicked sense of humour. What a massive asset she is to the Clarity Team.
It’s getting quite steamy in the Clarity kitchen, I can tell you!! Jayne and the despatch team are still reeling from what went down on Sunday with the Little Bird dies. Blimey. Didn’t see that coming! Then Tina delivers today – and Brother Steve is spinning like a top making more stock!
And in the meantime, Paul and I are going like the clappers, getting ready for this coming Weekend – our own 25 year celebration! We’re all on top of it, the prep is nearing completion, the beautiful DT art samples are mostly in and photographed, there’s a lot more to a TV show than meets the eye! But throw a few glitches in, a few spanners in the works – and it’s 9pm before you remember you haven’t blogged! No worries. It’s all good.
25 years in business is a big thing in this house !! I know there are many, many businesses which have been going for much longer; 7th, 8th, 10th generation businesses. They’ve traded through wars – and come out the other side. But that’s another thing I am grateful for today – I haven’t experienced a war in my lifetime here in Britain. I’ve had the odd occasion when I have had to put on my armour and load my barrel – but who hasn’t ?! I’m actually really excited to be allowed to shout about our silver jubilee on telly!
10 am Saturday, I shall chirping away about Clarity, and taking it right back to its roots. I have got something particularly lovely to show you, apart from the little Video ! Forgive me for not doing a project today, but I’m just about done in.
I have got something cool to tell you though. You may have already heard, but a little bird told me about the International Craft Awards. Apparently, we have been nominated for – wait for it – 18 awards in 14 categories !!! That is amazing. I didn’t know there WERE that many categories! That’s the most nominations we have EVER received! Thank you for believing in us. Couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time, could it ?! Voting starts on 13th September, so I do hope you tick a few boxes for us!
Love & Hugs,
