Thanks for popping in. Day of calm today, before Paul and I head on up to HOCHANDA early tomorrow morning, for the next round of TV shows! The afternoon hours are showcasing our Clarity Clubs. If you have just recently joined, then this will be an ideal opportunity to buy Past Issues of Stamps, Stencils and Groovi.
Then at 6pm, we launch a small ODS, but a very special one. Many of you will remember our dear friend Jayne Nestorenko, who lost her battle with cancer a couple of years ago. Well, she drew five wonderful winterland scenes. You may well be familiar with three of them, which we turned into Claritystamps and Groovi plates when Jayne was still with us. I remember the show as if it were yesterday, because we got Jayne on the phone in the studio, and she was so delighted with what we had all created with her designs. It was magical. Here are a couple of the tv demos I made, from that show in December 2016.
And here are a couple of pics of Jayne, her friend Helene and myself from the same week; Paul and I visited her, to show her all the art and samples properly ; I remember she cooked a delicious ham lunch for us. Insisted on it.
Well, on Sunday we are launching the last two of Jayne’s Winter Wonderland Collection, and I reckon she would be really chuffed to see what we have done with the skies. Just a clever little twist, to make the wintery landscapes really come to life. There’s one with a little bridge….
…and one with a little church.
But check out the two below. Mmmmm….That’s Monday morning 9am’s demo! Jayne would have loved this little trick.
So today is a day of rest. I just said to Dave in the kitchen, “I’ll pop upstairs and write my blogs,” and he responded with, “I’ll go outside and chop some logs”. Poetry. We are so lucky. And we know it.
Last thing before I curl up in front of a log fire then, and chillax for a couple of hours. CAPTION COMPETITION WINNER! Remember this pic?
Mel texted me the caption which made her laugh out loud:
Judy C. wrote:
Mel to Barb, “Any good at pottery slip?”
Barb to Mel, “I see you’re wearing one of my pots”
Then I looked at Mel’s hat and it dawned on me too. I curled up. So Judy C. Well done. Please email Barbara@claritystamp.com with your address, and we will get a £20 Clarity Gift Voucher in the post to you.
Thanks to everybody who joined in. I had a right old chuckle reading them all!
I’ll blog yesterday’s Telly demos next week. All the gear’s at the studios, so I can’t take pics!
Love & Hugs,
