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 I had her plateful.
So I thought, RIGHT! Let’s have a Tina Celebration! Let’s spend the weekend plastering Facebook with all the Tina-art we have created, using her designs! Let’s have some fun. Let’s have a competition. Let’s have a sale. Let’s bang on about Tina – until she comes out into the light again!
I have to say, her work is my kinda parchment style. It’s modern, it’s funky and it’s actually very achievable – if you follow her instructions!! I particularly liked the Floral Babyplate Parchlets. They are small, bitsize artpieces, so for somebody like me, who is always pressed for time, these are perfect. Hours of fun here!
Have I got a favourite? Nope. They’re all beautiful! And when you see how Tina and the team bring these little plates to life – it is really astounding! They work brilliantly for a beginner; they work equally well for a seasoned parchment artist.
Actually, Tina designs beautiful stamps too! Really lovely. I used her floral bouquet this week in the latest Youtune. Stamps beautifully. CLICK HERE
If you have some of Tina’s designs, do me a favour: post your art on Facebook Groovi Worldwide. If you haven’t any, then I have one question: WHY NOT!!! Head on over to the Tina Sale Section. We’ve reduced the prices on over 70 plates by 33% plus club discounts.
Do you know, years ago, when I first met Tina, she had just designed a little collection of flower stamps, and had had them manufactured by somebody else. Really lovely designs. But she just doesn’t like the business side of this craft game, she’s much happier designing. So I bought all the stampsets off her, and she climbed on board the good ship Clarity! The artwork which she made to show off this little stampset was gorgeous!! I still have it! Tomorrow, I will show it to you. Didn’t know Tina came to us as a stamper first, huh?!?! Yep. Girl of many MANY talents.
Time to stop for the day. Enjoy the Tina Cox Appreciation Weekend. It starts now!! By Sunday, when she comes to ours for a break and a spot of lunch, I’m hopeful that she will be feeling better, happier – and loved.
Love & Hugs,
