Thanks for popping in. Last day of the Pergamano Party today. At midnight tonight the wheels will stop turning, the sale will end – and all will be quiet again…
But in the meantime, let’s keep going!! Grace has blogged loads of your fabulous art over on the Clarity Matters blog, and has been picking flowers for everyone! And I’d like to have one last little flowery giveaway over on this ’ere blog too, just cos I can!
Recognise this little Groovi plate (or should I say Groovi little plate?) We rustled it up as a little promo gift for the NEC a while ago, so some of you may already have it. It has a smashing little floral wreath, and a pretty Groovi message too.
I’ve got 50 of them. I’ve piled them up by the franking machine and we’re popping them into 50 random orders placed this week. If one of these turns up in your box, you’ll know why. xxx
Pergamano and Groovi are inextricably linked nowadays. The two go hand in hand. Whether you’re a traditional parcher or completely new to parching, you’ll find great benefits in both areas. I always think of Pergamano as the tools and equipment side of the craft, and Groovi as the design and art side.

That’s a wholelottaletters! Plenty of vowels too. So let’s have some fun. How about some more bloggy candy? See how many words you can make out of Pergamanoandgroovi. That’ll keep you busy for hours! I can see loads! Send your list of words to firstname.lastname@example.org, and post the NUMBER of words in a post below this blog. Then I know to make sure we have your email.
Let’s not just enter the letters into an anagram generator to win though. That’s pretty unimaginative, don’t you agree? Let’s do it the healthy-for-the-soul-way! Let’s actually sit with the letters and let our brains do some work! Let’s earn a prize and feel good about it! Entering the letters into a generator program and letting the computer spit out the highest answer would be like me buying a jigsaw puzzle which comes completed and pretending I finished it myself! What’s the prize? Ahh.. mmmm…how about a surprise prize? To be announced next week…
On the subject of numbers, remember the competition at the start of the week? I asked you to guess how many Groovi designs we have created since its inception. Well, we had plenty of guesses, some sooo close (and some miles out!!). Alas, nobody nailed it precisely, so the £50 Gift Voucher is safe for another day, another competition. But the £20 Gift Voucher for the closest guess goes to….
She guessed 927. Well done Coral! The actually number is 947, so she was pretty close!! When we hit 1,000, we should have another party! Thank you all who joined in.
Hope you have enjoyed this week’s Parchment celebration. A big thank you to our über-talented Design team for making it special. Thanks to Grace and Stuart for driving the Clarity Matters blog so beautifully, and a HUGE thank you to my brother Steve and the whole team at Clarity, for stepping up to the Groovi Plate, as it were, and just getting it done.
May I just say a heartfelt thank you to all those of you who keep us going? You do, you know. Quite simply, if you didn’t buy our products, we wouldn’t be here. Sure, we work hard. We work very hard. But so do lots of companies who just can’t keep going any longer because of things as they are. So I am under no illusion how fine a line we tread here, and when I say Thank you, I mean it.
Have a great weekend.
Love and Hugs
