Sorry I am so late today. Long day at the office… but that’s ok. My choice. Poor old Brother Steve is on nights all week! I felt bad leaving him there tonight; but there’s so much to make, he said there’s no way round it. So tomorrow, Dave and I are going in to keep him company in the evening – best time to get stuff done !! And we are bound to have a laugh along the way.
Alongside the launch of our brand new Pergamano Show on HOCHANDA TV, scheduled every Thursday after the Sunday when I’m usually on,
we have also started a YouTube mini-series on Pergamano tools.
These handy videos can be found on our YouTube page. They’re no longer than 2 minutes each and are great for getting a basic overview of what each tool is for and how to use them. Starting with our embossing and shading tools – we’ve put a playlist together for you here.
Thanks Becca and thanks Simon! Great job!!! More to be continued as soon as they get back in the saddle after their honeymoon….
I am still beaming from ear to ear that we won the award for Best Product of the Year with Claritystamp PERGAMANO. Never saw that coming !!!
The next Pergamano Show is on Thursday 7th March. 8am. 12 noon and 3pm. THREE HOURS! That is
But but but: Tomorrow, you are in for a super duper treat with another wonderful, brilliant and beautiful friend of ours: Tina Cox. She and Paul are launching a delightful set of Groovi plates, designed by her good self, at 6pm. Very funky and fresh – and very cool for men. Wait till you see what Tina has in store for you with these plates! She has such a unique, adorable style…..
Here are a few lovely pieces from our clever team, to inspire you….
It’s amazing to see how we have all embraced the Groovi system so unconditionally here, under the roof of Clarity. And now, almost effortlessly, we are moving into the realm of traditional parchment, and all those magic Pergamano tools.
I must tell you a little story. A dear customer of ours from Wales wrote to me recently. She told me her husband had died last year, and that her world had been turned on its head, understandably. She said that whilst she was still loving the stamping and inky side of her crafting, she really wasn’t making the most of her Groovi and parchment stash any longer, and wondered whether I knew anybody who might benefit from it.
That very same day, I received another letter from another dear customer in Ireland, who has terminal cancer, but who loves crafting with others in the hospice, and wanted to tell me how important her crafting with others was to her, and how much she loved the Groovi art, and how it helped her immensely through dark times. I reached out to her, and asked her whether the hospice and she might enjoy a parcel of goodies from a good woman in Wales – and the rest is history.
Long story short, we gratefully had the parcel picked up from Jean, and brought back to base, because I wanted to check whether we might supplement the stash if several people were going to enjoy it. Well, what can I tell you? How wrong was I! It was overwhelming. The box was beautifully and perfectly packed, with everything imaginable that you could ever want for a group of parchers. All filed in folders, all indexed. Dave, Paul and I sat in silence and shed a tear. For the generosity, for the sadness, for the kindness – just the humanity of it all. And the parcel was duly repacked and sealed, relabelled and sent on to dear Anne in Ireland.
It’s random acts of great kindness like Jean’s that make my job so much sweeter. I wish I were a fly on the wall when Anne opens that box. Faith, Hope, Love and Charity – all the way from a new friend in Wales.
Love & Hugs,
