Thanks for popping in. Friday’s blog a private peek, right? Well, there’s a lot going on here at Clarity Towers – A W H O L E H E L L U V A L O T !!! So before I head into the office, and get caught up in all the sales stuff and next week’s retreat prep, let me tell you a story. A TRUE story…
Picture the scene. Brother Steve, girlfriend Sheila, Dave and I are staying at the old Schoolhouse in New Mexico – a place I bought years ago. Great place. Pretty wild; would make a fantastic Wild West Film location! We’re all doing our own thing in this room or that, when suddenly Steve shouts “Sheila! Snake!” (We had been to the Rattlesnake Museum in Albuquerque the day before, and she had mooted she would like to see a snake in the wild). Well, you can imagine. We all shot to the back door where Steve was, just in time to see a very long snake slither across the path into the brush.
Lot’s of excitement. We opened the glass door and ran out to see what kind of snake. I know. Pretty bloody daft, right? So there we were, all grouped around this snake (???? Hindsight is a great thing).
Steve: I think it’s a rattle snake.
Barb: No way!
Steve: Well, it looks just like that diamond back we saw at the museum yesterday. Same markings.
At that point, this snake suddenly postures, shoots up and arches in the air like a cobra, and starts rattling like you have NEVER heard!! Oh boy. You have never seen 4 brits run backwards in flipflops so fast in your life. It was like a Benny Hill Show in reverse! Shiiiiiiiiiit!!!!!!!!!
Once we were all safely inside behind the glass door, noses pressed up against the pane watching at a distance, we got a couple of pictures. Not sure why we laughed till we cried, nerves perhaps?
But that rattler stayed there rattling away for a good half hour. I called the Ray the Forest Ranger and asked what we should do, and he just said if we got bitten, to call 911. They would come and airlift us to Albuquerque quickly, because you’ve only got about 30 minutes before your organs start shutting down. Thanks, Ray. That’s handy.
We’re chuffed to be launching the new Clarity Matters blog today, and you’ll soon see why! There’s a bumper weekend Die Sale just started at www.claritystamp.com to celebrate too! CLICK HERE
I just got my pocket calculator out and worked out what this Weekend Die Sale actually comes out to. It is pretty good!
Let’s just go with the regular £15 dies. At 35% off they come down to £9.37. Gold Members pay £8.77. Diamond members pay £8.29 (maybe it’s time to join one of our clubs! We have a Die Club you know!!) Anyway, back to the abacus…
There’s an additional offer running parallel. Buy any 6 dies and you can pick a 7th one free. So the Clarity Club member who picks 6 £15 dies and then a 7th one free, actually saves more than he/she is spending! £105 worth of dies for under £50! Time to die-ve in!!!!
A good friend of ours is getting married next week, so I got up early today and made a quick card with one of my favourite dies.
If you would like to see the photo step by step, then come back here tomorrow! It’s a perfect project for those of you starting out on the die trail (that sounds wrong!) and I will show you a couple of other pottery things I made using just this design too….
Love & Hugs
