Thanks for popping in. Had a really good spring clean in the SHAC Shack this morning. It feels so much fresher and nicer now! Was getting pretty skanky to be honest. Just kept piling the next job on the old job, and not filing – just piling !!
All set for the 2-4pm Clarity TV Show on Hochanda too. Lovely Lucy and I worked on this one together; we bounced back and forth for quite a while, getting the chess blocks perfect, then she went off and designed a spectacularly cool collection of Mixed Media Stamps to go with them.
I love working with Lucy. She gets me. All I said was we could do with some big grungy background stamps for layering and to bring the pretty chess pieces to life, and perhaps some splattered handwriting – and boom! In the back of the net first time!
The first demo is a bright and zesty card, clean and simple. It sums up how I feel about our Clarity Team.
From the pickers and packers, to the front of house telephone responders, from the ideas people, the designers and illustrators, to the makers and machine operators in production, from the sales and marketing team to the assembly workers and product finishers – every single one of the team is valued and greatly appreciated . Yes – teamwork sure makes the dream work at Clarity.
There is so much to consider at our place! When you not only design but also MAKE pretty much everything you sell, there are so many boxes to tick!
Yes, I’m quietly very very proud of our little business. Dave just came home from work, grinning like a Cheshire cat. he has been using one of the Heidelberg presses as a die cutting machine (you know, Tree cards, Xmas stocking cards etc). Well this morning, he fired up the second platen press, and started to figure out the printing process. I have to say, the samples he showed me are pretty blimming impressive!! Exciting times….
Anyway, back to the TV and the first demo in the line-up. I do hope you can tune in at 2pm. I’ll show you how to line it all up really quickly and simply. Got loads of cool tricks, tips and demos to share with you. I have a feeling these will be popular – especially at the 3 for 2 price!
See you there!
Love and hugs
