Thanks for popping in.
Wednesday’s blog is when we try to look at WHY we craft, rather than WHAT we craft, n’est-ce pas?
Well, like so many of you, over the years I’ve made friends for life through this little Clarity Community of ours. I work with a few of them too, which makes my life all the sweeter. Imagine being able to work with your best friends! That is pretty special. It works because whilst we share a common creative streak, a passion for making things, the friendship overrides the business. Well, it does for me anyway, and ultimately I can only speak for myself.
So imagine my absolute delight and jubilation when I tell you that our Leonie is joining the Clarity Team! Oh HAPPY DAY!!!
We met up in Lewes on Sunday at Bill’s for breakfast. To have a good catch up and make a plan…
We talked, we laughed, we cried. We drank gallons of tea and we shared ideas.
And it was gone 6pm before we left the building! Never stopped gassing! The ideas just kept on bubbling up, and we just went with them. We’re not going to do the BIG LAUNCH. No, no no. Leonie has her plate very full with presenting on Hochanda, preparing Let Leonie Loose, workshops and all the things which she does, and will continue to do. But going forward, together we are going to develop a strong and exciting Mixed Media Department within Clarity. Our Sam Crowe was almost as stoked as me when I told her the news earlier in the week. We both agree that we need that Leonie flavour, that blend added to what we’ve already got. Even over a cuppa at Bill’s we had a stencil breakthrough. It is so good to bounce ideas off a like-minded creative!
When we left Bill’s we were strolling through Lewes to the carpark. Suddenly, we heard “I don’t believe it!! Look!! My two favourite crafters together!!” A lady recognised us from the telly, and so we had a nice chat and a photo moment, (she said her sister would never believe her unless she had photographic evidence!)
As we walked on, chuckling, I turned to Leonie. “It’s a sign Leonie! It’s a sign that we are on the right track!!!”
And I am pretty sure we are. I love this woman. I love her free spirit and her passion, her integrity and her art.
I hope you will join me in welcoming her to the Clarity team.
Love & Hugs,
