Hi there,

And there it was. The NEC is over for another year. Well, until March.

The stands are being taken apart, and there is a lot of crashing and clanging in the hall. We have lots of help. Brother Steve and Sean, our new General Manager at Clarity, drove up together to help, which is a massive relief. We may have sold a lot, but my oh my – we could keep going for another month with the gear we brought with us!!!!!

Have I been busy doing demos? Not much!!!!!! Here are just a few of the Fresh Cut pics I did. I bounced between stamps and dies all 4 days. I gave away loads too!

Plenty of little Christmas presents here though!!

Anyway, I’d better go help the team!

Time to trundle back down the motorway. Thanks for coming, watching and supporting. You make it all worth while x


Love and hugs,

  6. Thank you, Barbara and the whole of the wonderful Clarity team, for all you have done. The stand was awesome. The Make and Take was full every day from start to finish. I have already decided that next time, I am coming every day to fit in everything I want to see and do. I shall make sure I have new batteries in my scooter. I only just made it back to the car yesterday. Have a safe journey home. xxx Maggie. (Silvercrafter)

  13. Hi Barb,
    Watched Paul’s show today and was pleased to see another sell out – very quick too! I love here plates and although I said I wasn’t going to buy, I did! However, Dave has bought them for me bless him! So glad that the show has been enjoyable and successful for you ( and I bet shattering for you all) . I hope that you have a safe trip to Germany and that the shows there will be successful as well. Following that, I hope that you’ll be able to have a well earned rest or a break away somewhere to recharge the batteries. Love and hugs,Alison
