Little Books – BIG KNOWLEDGE!

Little Books – BIG KNOWLEDGE!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s Tina Cox Celebration Weekend, so how about taking a little look behind the scenes. It was Tina who first came up with the idea of our Perforated Pattern Grids. She gave us some pretty inspirational guideline books to go with the first two Border pattern grids, too. In case you’re not familiar with them, let me elucidate. The first thing to know is that there are 2 books for the Straight Grid No…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. And thanks for responding so brilliantly and plastering Facebook with your artwork made using Tina’s designs!

Butterflies and Flowers! SURPRISE!!!! She also gave a me a box of beautiful art samples, which have been sitting on the shelf by…

Big Cheer for Tina Cox !!!

Big Cheer for Tina Cox !!!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Mentioned dear Tina in yesterday’s blog yesterday. Then phoned her, just to check in on her. She’s been having a pretty tough time since before Christmas, and she’s still not back to her bubbly self. Actually, if you’re wondering where she is hiding, she has retreated to the back of the cave, and is feeling pretty low. To be honest, I get it. No wonder she’s fed up !! I’d be fed up if…

Very Handy indeed!

Very Handy indeed!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Did you read Grace’s excellent blog about Gratitude Lists yesterday? It was good to be reminded; in the daily chaos that has enveloped Clarity in recent times, I have been neglecting to do that simple task every morning, and reading Grace’s sage words placed me firmly back on track. Thanks Grace. If you would like to check it out, go to yesterday’s CLARITY MATTERS Blog. A worthy read indeed. In fact, at the very…

BILLY

BILLY

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Good day today. A Billy-Building day! There’s nothing like a mindless exercise to clear the head, is there?! Mind you, building BILLY Bookshelves does require a little focus – as I found out! There IS a set sequence, and it’s best to stick to it, and not be the first in the process. So we formed a production line, Paul and I. Paul started the step by step. He likes unboxing things, so I…

Thinking about a Maclaren…

Thinking about a Maclaren…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. On the way to the Chinese Shen Yun performance the other week, we drove past Maclaren Headquarters, Woking. “Oooh! Look! There’s the Maclaren Headquarters!” “Forget the cars! Look at the Silver Birches!!” What a wonderful avenue of silver birches! And in the twilight hour, they just looked magnificent. Then yesterday, Dave and I were out walking, and came across a whole forest of them again. Absolutely glorious right now. The lilac haze atop the…

Unplugged.

Unplugged.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Trying to get some order in the day here! Time to eat some laundry, empty the walk, go for a car and do some toast – but not before I write my shower and have a blog! All at 6s and 7s today. Or is it 6s and 2s? Got too many windows open like a computer, and now they’ve all frozen. Best thing is to STOP, pull the plug out and reboot. After…

Something new…

Something new…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Getting revved up for a little one hour show tomorrow at 4pm on Hochanda. Paul is showcasing some exceptionally beautiful and useful Groovi lace plates at 11am and 2pm. And I will be waiting patiently in the wings, to show off a little set of floral framers which I drew to compliment last year‘s Floral ABC. They may be modest, entwined and quite simple, but they do pack a punch – even if I…
