Tina’s on Telly tomorrow!

Tina’s on Telly tomorrow!

Hi there.

Thanks for popping in.

What a busy day ! It’s all go here, in the run up to our Weekend Celebrations on HOCHANDA. Yesterday went swimmingly, demos just came easily. This afternoon was a total waste of time. Wasn’t working, wasn’t gelling, wasn’t appenin. The air was blue by the time Dave turned up with the Fish n Chips.

Half an hour later, a meal and a laugh later – and suddenly we know what to do. AND WE HIT THE SPOT STRAIGHTAWAY.

So what do we deduce from that little escapade?

Eat more fish and chips!!!

Tomorrow Tina is gracing your screens with 2 live hours of what is set to be brilliant demos. It’s Tina! When isn’t she brilliant ?!? I have learnt so much from that woman. I really like her work and her style, and I sometimes see it in my work nowadays too.

Tomorrow Tina will be showcasing a brand new ii-book, which goes with her Doodle Border and Wreath sets

Here’s a little inspriation, to get your Groovi juices flowing….

Jane Telford

Maria Moorhouse

Amanda Williams

Dee Paramour

Glynis Whitehead

Sylvia Marshall

In fact, I think she will be showing off a number of her books and matching plates tomorrow. So many people tell me that they have worked their way through entire ii-books, doing one project after another, learning the techniques and using the little project books as parchment tutorials or courses if you like. I certainly did that myself with the pattern grid borders.

Sometimes I just a kickstart with the composition, the layout of a card; the ii-books hit the spot for that too.

Anyway, I must press on. Lovely Lucy at work has composed a wonderful 2 minute video for the TV shows on the weekend about our 25 years of business, and I have to record the voiceover. Trouble is I get to a certain frame and start blubbing. Soppy sod. I shall have to think of something sobering, like Margaret Thatcher in the nude. Yep. That’ll stem the flow!!!

Love & Hugs,

  1. Dear Barbara. Best wishes for the weekend. It will be great as usual. I laughed at the bit about Margaret Thatcher. I am sure there will be some interesting things this weekend. Enjoy the celebrations. Xxxx

  2. Gayle I can go one better – I actually splurted my drink out!! Lol. Way to go Barbara – and why shouldn’t you be a bit emotional – it is a very special achievement. Can’t wait to see what you are going to do and the little video complete with voice over. Xxx

  3. Will have to catch up with Tina’s shows on rewind as looking after grandchildren tomorrow. What a day we have had today, they are great at stripping wallpaper and not a cross word about the mess. Good luck for the weekend Barbara, I shall be watching. xx

  4. Oh more books for me to sit and stroke, I tend to turn the pages and then start again ! Thinking, I’m going to to do one ! Look forward to it ! X

  5. Looking forward to watching Tina tomorrow, the samples by the DT are stunning yet again. Fish & chips sound great, glad they did the trick. I am sure the voice over will go fine after eating them, your thoughts on Margaret Thatcher made me smile. We found a fabulous gluten free F & C shop on the harbour at Plymouth a few weeks ago, it was a real treat.

  6. What stunning samples your team have turned out.
    Ray(hubby) and I had a chuckle about the Margaret Thatcher quip – we love your sense of humour!!!

  9. The samples are amazing and I am so mad that I won’t be able to watch the shows live tomorrow, as I have stuff on all day.
    You do make me laugh Barb, with your wicked sense of humour. Of all the people to imagine naked, how on earth did you come up with Maggie?! Although I suppose Poldark wouldn’t have the same effect in the circumstances and may give you sudden memory loss instead.
    Never apologise for getting emotional, it is what makes you human. Hope it all goes well. Annette. x

  10. I nearly choked at your parting shot there! I now have an image in my head I can’t get out!!!!
    I hope all goes well with this weekend… I’m sure it will… The products you’re bringing to the table are just superb!!!
    Once you’ve done your voice over have a relaxing evening!
    Love and hugs xxx
