Thanks for popping in!
Wednesday’s blog. When we look inside, right?
Well, I came home after 3 weeks of galavanting around, full of new resolve to slow down – and what happens? I do a 10 hour day at the office, then drive over to Mum and Dads in rush hour traffic (via the M25 aka OCP Orbital Car Park), hang out with them till midnight – and then drive home again! Sheesh!!
However. I enjoyed every minute of it. The office is buzzing, some new and amazing plates came off the lasers yesterday, and creativity abounds.
Mum and Dad? Well, I just love hanging out with them. We never stopped gassing! My Dad has such a bone dry British sense of humour, and most of it goes straight over Mum’s German head. They’re like a comedy act! I love them dearly, and relish our evenings together in their dining room, drinking tea and chewing the cud. They have known me longer than anyone in the world, they know the way I tick, they love me unconditionally, we have so so much in common – and it’s the one place beyond home where I can be me entirely.
Maria is on telly today. Hochanda.com 12 noon and 4pm. She is showcasing a set of exquisite new woodland stencils. They are larger than usual, and they have lots of superb animal elements entwined. Mel drew them.
It’s actually Mel’s birthday today! So can we all sing together? Ready? She reads the blog every single day, so she will have heard us!
These designs are so clever! How many animals can you see here?
And what about here?
They are so beautifully entwined. Just a line here and a flash there…
And here too?!

Large stencil: perfect for mixed media, for background, for isolated elements, for Gel Press printing – the list goes on. Yes indeed. And I look forward to seeing what Maria comes up with at lunchtime.
There are also some beautiful stamps and Groovi plates on the show – some of the best of Clarity actually. So I do hope you tune in and watch.
As for me, I am off to my potty pottery class this afternoon. Have missed the last two weeks because of the NEC and QVC, so I can’t wait to see how my pot has turned out!
I read something the other day which creased me up.
“My teacher said I would never be any good at poetry because of my dyslexia. How wrong he was! I have made 3 great mugs and a coil pot already!”
Love & Hugs,
