Thanks for popping in. Trying to get everything ready for the NEC here. We want to get out and on the road by 6am, so the van is all packed and ready to roll. I’m ticking and checking my demo stash and TV boxes – if we’ve forgotten anything, well, it’s nothing terminal, is it? If I have forgotten a stampset, then I will just have to crack open a new set, won’t I! The stand is nearly 20 metres long – and there’s a 7 metre long make & take area right opposite too! I bet we fill every single square inch too!!!
Oh how we’ve grown! I remember doing the NEC show many, many years ago. Always booked a 4 metre stand, which was all we could afford. Mum and Dad would look after the kids back home. I would drive the van, unload the van, set the stand up with a friend, demo brayers and stamps all day every day. Even slept in the van on occasion, because we were broke. Then load up the van again – and trundle home. You don’t forget those years, you never forget. So if I come across as very grateful and happy with the way things are nowadays – that’s because I am !!! I remember my whole business used to hinge on whether we sold well at the NEC in March or not. Nowadays, it isn’t crucial like that. Of course, we still work hard and are set to serve with a smile. But that desperate undercurrent is no longer a part of my life – and for that I am truly grateful. Thank you.
Here’s a very clever little How-to video by Paul. This little frame trick went down very well on telly. Enjoy….
The 12×12 papers are still reduced in price by 20%, so head on over to the website and take advantage!
Next stop – suitcase. Must pack some nice clobber for the next 5 days. I’m really looking forward to the show now. It will be lovely to see all our Clarity friends again! Yes. I’m excited now. It will be good. I can feel it.
Linda Williams is doing brilliant Make & Take FREE all day every day – so be sure to come and sign up straight away. Paul will be getting in the Groovi groove, I am happy stamping up the other end – and Lou Withers is joining us on the weekend too – so that will be awesome.
Yes. We have certainly come a long way on this Clarity journey – and I’m liking the shape of it and loving the people who are making it happen.
Love & Hugs,
