Friday’s blog a private peek, right?
Thanks for popping in. I’ve got good news, very good news indeed! If you read this ‘ere blog daily, you will know that I miss my kids Grace and Mark madly. They live in the States, and have done for many years. Both are happy, healthy and beautiful, we speak every week, and I am grateful every day to have them in my life – albeit thousands of miles away, living the dream.
Well, here’s the BIG NEWS! We are opening a New York office – and Grace is coming on board the good ship Clarity. Woohoo!!! She will run the company stateside. We already have so many American customers, and it’s time we made their shopping with us easier, and built a bridge to America. There’s so much to do! So much to ship! So much to plan! Boy oh boy! But I have to tell you, with Grace at the helm, I have no doubt that it will work just fine. No doubt at all at all. Do you know her? She is fabulous. Super smart, very kind – and a great crafter, too. It’s in her blood. Her lovely fella, the other Mark, apart from being a really nice bloke, also happens to be a very astute Cornell Business School graduate, so that can’t be a bad thing, now can it?!
She can still pursue her acting and voiceover work, of course. That was always her dream and she is so good at it, too! But life is what’s happening while you’re busy chasing dreams, so now she can build a back-up career with Clarity. I like that idea. And I know she has reached that point too now. Her gorgeous brother Mark is in California, carving out a pretty immense business career, so he will be there too, if we need him. And suffice it to say, he’s DEFINITELY IN THE RIGHT BUILDING!!!
Happy Days. Official start date with Clarity is June 1st. That’s less than a month away! So Dave and I are off to the Big Apple for our first intercontinental meeting the week before! (Smiles, and wonders why they didn’t work this one out years ago…)
To celebrate, let’s say it with flowers this Bank Holiday weekend! Remember the Floral Groovi ABC which sold out in record time recently?
Well, brother Steve has made some more, so let’s have a special Weekend Only sale. Until midnight Tuesday, the price on this popular Alphabet Collection, illustrated by yours truly, is greatly reduced, in case you missed it when it launched.
When will the stamps be ready? The stamps are on the bed. The artwork is perfect, the negs have been made, and we are set to hit the Go! button. They will be ready soon…one thing at a time, eh. All good things take time, and we want these to be as perfect as the Groovi plates.
Happy bank Holiday Weekend. I will be on the HOCHANDA telly 2-4 Sunday, and it’s lovely Josie Davidson’s début at 6pm Sunday, when she launches her latest fantastic Palace corner-grids. You need these!
Love & Hugs,
