Groovi Plate of the Month and a Late Night….

Groovi Plate of the Month and a Late Night….

Hi there!

Thanks for popping in. It’s late here at Clarity. Just Dave and myself, having a lock-in, as it were. Not the kind of lock-in I remember we used to succumb to back in the day – but it’s quite nice to just knuckle down and get the job done sometimes. With Leonie blowing the doors off with her fabby stencils, and Lou Withers joining in at the Clarity party too, the stencil department just tripled overnight! So before anybody loses their hair here, I thought I’d just make the ones which are on my NEC TV Show myself ! Or at least put a dent in the quantity!

They are so lovely, these stencils of houses and buildings and cobbled streets; I am looking forward to showing them off – especially now I’ve made em, weeded em and packed em! Dave’s still going at it whilst I write to you. Teamwork makes the dream work, eh. And at least Clare will have less on her plate tomorrow when she gets in. xx Thursday 12 noon on HOCHANDA, live from the NEC.

We’re carrying on our animal-themed Products of the Month with the Woodland Squirrel A5 Sq Groovi Plate!

Almost time to call it a day now. Just time for a cheeky Indian on the way home, methinks. The kitchen is well and truly closed, I can tell you!!!

Till tomorrow,

Love & Hugs,

  1. Hi Barb,
    I bet Clare will be very impressed tomorrow, but you must be goosed! I love the squirrel plate,it is just so cute. One of my favourite things to do when we go to London is to go to Greenwich , the gardens next to the Observatory, and take a bag of monkey nuts and feed the squirrels. Even tough they are the grey ones, I still like them. We are lucky enough up here to have red squirrels which are adorable. Looking forward to all of the new things on offer. Samples from DT today are gorgeous. Enjoy your Indian, love and hugs Alison xxx

  2. Nothing wrong with a take-away after a late night at work. I was so happy to see the left over veggie lasagne in my fridge tonight! Might need to engage the slow cooker tomorrow too…x

  3. Have a good time being productive after hours. Wow the work that goes in to getting the things ready for sale, good to see the behind the scenes though makes us appreciate all the care and attention we get from Clarity. Enjoy your curry. Xx

  4. Hi busy busy Clare will be pleased tomorrow enjoy your Indian my kitchen would be closed to after long day so have fun have some chill time with rest of your evening sleep well xxx

  5. The squirrel plate is lovely and I loved the card by Carys as the fur looks so real, very talented as are all your design team xx

  6. Love the squirrel, use it a lot. Smashing art work from the team as usual. No take aways for us, we’ve both got more weight to lose!!!😇 We try to be good😇 and it also saves money for crafty goods.
    Have a good evening with your curry.

  7. Hello Barbara – I bought this plate recently. I have squirrels in my garden that are tame, actually come to the door for their food and peanuts. Lucky enough to be able to hand feed them, so I was pleased to find a Groovi plate with them on. Lovely to see the design teams artwork. Brilliant as always. Hope your now home and relaxing. Lots of love Donna X

  8. You work so hard for us all but I am sure it is appreciated. Received my King plates and Tina’s floral rounds today so got plenty of new designs to keep me going. Enjoy that takeaway. xx

  9. This reminds me of my second favourite book when I was a kid…..
    “The Elves & the Shoemaker”. My fave was The Wishing Chair, actually I also loved Mrs Pepperpot, Mary Poppins, Heidi & Malory Towers. *Sighs*, they don’t write them like that anymore.
    Hope all your hard work pays off at the NEC. I’ll be waving at the tv, so please give us Couch Crafter’s a loud shout out. 🤗🗣️

  10. Hope you enjoyed your Indian, well deserved after a late night. What a surprise for Clare in the morning, she will think that it is true that there are elves working at Clarity Towers !!

  11. Just to let you know…..the curry was fab ! Mr. Ali.
    @ The ‘Quality Tandoori ‘ Edenbridge… does the business, now it’s time for zzzzzzzzz’s.

  12. You are so thoughtful to do extra work to save the stress of a heavier workload for someone else, and both you and Dave deserved your lovely curry before heading on home, and it sounds as though it hit the spot…lol.

  13. Stencils look good, curry sounds fab and getting some ZZZZ’s a great idea, unfortunately my brain is working overtime at the mo and I’m wide awake at 00:30! Ah well will give it a little longer and hopefully the sleepiness will come. My bulk pack of parchment arrived today so I think I’m set up with that for a good while…

  14. Great team !!!
    very exciting to read your blog every time,which makes us full of energy to continue working.
    Fight,fight ,fight !!!

  15. Hi Barb, wow you and Dave have been busy. Like you say team work makes the dream work. Hope you enjoyed your curry and got some sleep. The squirrel plate is really lovely and fantastic artwork from the DT. Take care all. Bx

  16. Such beautiful inspiration from the DT. Hope you have a great time at the NEC, one of these days I’ll get there.
    Hope you enjoyed your Indian x

  17. Hi Barbara
    Loving the new stencil, I think this one will fly. It’s interesting to see behind the scenes and we all know you told your sleeves up and muck in when time is of the essence. Good to hear the curry was well received. Hope you’re not too late home tonight.
    Love Diane xxx
