Thanks for popping in. Just been putting the final touches to the prep for tomorrow’s TV show on The CraftStore.com 2-4pm. I’m travelling up to the Studios bright and early, so everything needs to be packed and ready before the end of play today! Hey. If I forgot something I shall have to improvise…after all these years I really ought to be able to wing it more! But the thought of rocking up to a live TV show without a shedload of demos to go to just freaks me out!
Mind you, the demos are just little tasters really, tricks n tips. Not proper arty tutorials. That’s where Youtube takes over. We’ve got hundreds of Youtubes videos which cover so many crafting skills and techniques! Have you ever checked out our playlists for Stamping, Stencilling, Gel Press printing, parchment craft – there are loads!
Paul talked about our Claritystamp Youtube channel on Wednesday, when he took over this ’ere blog for a couple of days. He asked you to find out which of our Youtubes has had the most views. Loads of you got the right answer – well done – so we picked a random winner to receive a £10 Clarity Gift Voucher.
and the answer is………….. Gelli Plate How To – It’s All Vine Now with 120,000 views.
Just over 12 minutes long. That’s an easy to watch length. I watch a lot of pottery youtubes which are much MUCH longer than that. But I learn so much! Especially the Japanese artists; they blow me away. There’s something very spiritual about their approach to art and their daily working ritual. It is beautiful actually. And so is their artwork.
Before I go throw a pot, let me copy-paste what my darling Gracie has written over on the Sister Blog, Claritymatters.com. Or should I say Daughter blog?
We’re often having sales and offers for everyone! But they generally make the most sense for our UK compatriots. Our loyal US friends stick by us always, even through the higher shipping fees and longer wait times… and we LOVE YOU for that. To show our appreciation AND to celebrate July 4th this weekend… Here’s a special treat just for our American friends and customers! Our Amazon USA Summer Sale! We’re throwing a party sale on our USA Amazon page, so that you can grab some great bargains and benefit from lower shipping costs (free, if you have prime!) all at the same time!

If you live across the pond, in the States or Canada, and you fancy joining Linda Williams online for the Pergamano Summer School (FREE TUITION with the best on the business), NOW would be the perfect time to go buy the Handbook Volume 1 and the tools you need. There’s also a good selection of the scissors and multi needle tools. Not vast quantities though. Happy 4th July xxx
Take care, be safe
