Thanks for popping in. Snow here in Kent – very cold, very beautiful too.
February’s here too. Where did January go? ? I spotted a couple Christmas decorations in the lounge last night. Ah well. They kind of blend in, so I shall just leave them there! See if anybody else notices….
We always do have a Half-Price Clarity Club Members Sale at this time of year, and this year we want to do more. A few extra special offers for everybody, plenty of bloggy competitions, some blog candy – in short – let’s have a FABFEB!! Even better, let’s have an ABFABFABFEB!!! Trying saying that after a sherry or two!!
There are over 800 products in the sale. Not just stuff we’ve got too much stock of. Not at all. In fact, when we sell out of something, we make more – to keep the offer open for the whole month! If you are a CLub Member, happy days! If you aren’t then now might be a good time to join!!!
Right. Now I want to tell you about this new One Ton Beast which darling Dave drove up to the North of England to acquire this week. It is pretty blimming special. Let’s see how many photos you need to figure it out…
Are you still none the wiser? Well, the Heidelberg press was the Prince of Printing Presses in its day. You know, that really beautiful kind of printing which we so seldom see nowadays. It’s a fantastic piece of engineering – really tactile, mechanical, clever.
And why have we bought one? There is a plan, honest Guv!!! The Heidelberg platen press is most versatile, you know! It can print, imprint, number, perforate, punch, slit, emboss, die-cut, score and hot foil stamp.
Now ask me again why we have bought one! Jim says “It’s a star buy, Barb”
I am so excited!!!! Pottery? What pottery?? No no. Pottery is my passion. Heidelberg Windmill Press is a project, a business related project. But I want to learn this process. So does Dave. So does Jim. #retrorocks.
Let’s have a competition, just for fun. It’s a 2-part quiz. 1. Where do you think our new machine was made? Name the town. 2. What year do you think it was born? Answers below please!
Let’s all have an ABFABFABFEB!
Love & Hugs,
