Calm it Kermit….

Let’s see. Well, at 8am on Friday, our Sam Crowe is gracing our TV screens with her very first show. She is launching a fantastic set of Mixed Media Stamps which she has designed herself. They are sooooo clever!

I couldn’t help noticing these beautiful samples at the office yesterday:

This masterpiece is by Dee Paramour…

.. and this one is by Anne Dimitriou

Wowee. Why do I think these wonderful stamps with stencils will fly out the door ?!?!? Honestly, they are so funky, clever, neat, arty – can’t wait to see what Sam sees in her mind’s eye! She has been working on this collection for months.

Gotta go now! Business calls. But before I shoot off to a meeting, may I direct you to the Clarity Matters blog? grace has written a very interesting one today. Yeah. If you have ever heard of Papyrus, or you run a craft/ stationery company, you’ll get it. Yikes! I tick both them there boxes!

It’s a funny old life. You just never know what’s round the corner, do you.

Love & Hugs,

    Hope all goes well for Sam’s debut on TV for Clarity.
    While these new stamps are innovative and funky and the samples are amazing, they are not for me, much to the relief of hubby and the bank account. I have to save some pennies for the Pergamano show later this month as I am sure there will be some awesome goodies available.
    Have a good day.

  4. Congratulations, Dawn! Have fun.

    Grace’s blog was excellent yesterday and it is so worrying and sad to see so many shops going under.
