Happy Sunday !

Happy Sunday !

Hi there

Thanks for popping in. Have been clearing away all the demo gear from Friday’s TV shows this afternoon. I didn’t touch half the demos, but you know how it is – fail to prepare, prepare to fail! Thing is, you see, if you don’t have everything exactly there in front of you, ready to reach for, you really have NO time to start looking and faffing. Even after all these years, I go through the demos again and again and again before we go live. Not to check how to do the artwork – to make sure all the things I will need are in the box!

We whistled through the stencil demo with the brushes. I LOVE these new stencils…

– particularly this one. It’s got a really quirky angle.

Anyway. On to the next adventure.

While there is a temptation to just leave it all in the car for next week’s 4-day marathon Birthday weekend ont telly at the Craft Store, there’s a whole other launch of loveliness on the horizon, and I shall be using completely different things! So I know. I really do have to put it all away in its rightful place, only to get half of it back out again!

I’ve also been getting pretty stoked about the new things coming up next week. Our Clarity Birthday is always in September, and we always do something very special to celebrate. I remember last year, there were lots of smashing new designs, but the one that stood out for me was the wonderful Marina Fedotova Poppets printed on parchment. Superb. And didn’t they go down well ?!

This year is no different. In fact, I’d say this year we’ve really pushed the boat out! We have been working on these designs and ideas for months. MONTHS! And I can’t hazard a guess which one will blow the doors off this time – they are all superb. Just depends on where your art takes you….

If you’re a parcher, then look out ! Game Changer Alert on Friday evening !!

I think the Sunday evening launch will be a big hit with anybody who makes anything! Whether you stamp, sew, quilt, paint, make cards, ceramics, make clothes – I mean ANYTHING! It’s a must have.

And the one which really excites me is the Weekend Wow, which kicks the party off at 10am on Friday. Very, very cool. In fact, I’m going to have a play with those things now, get a couple of demos under my belt, get familiar with all the different patterns…

Oooh … she’s such a tease, that Gray. More will be revealed in the week leading up to Friday.

Must dash, said the Mexican!

Stay safe

Love always

  7. Oh next weekend sounds exciting, definitely a tease Barbara !! If you say we must have it though that’s good enough for me !! Looking forward to more reveals as the week goes on.
    Must remember to record the shows as I forgot last Friday until it was too late as we left home at 8am.

  8. Hi Barb,
    Oh you are definitely a tease! I am now so intrigued as to what these things could be. Unfortunately, I have a feeling they are going to add up to expensive! I’m not sure my pension is going to last long at this rate🤣🤣. I’m working on getting my Groovi plates catalogued – I’ve now managed all of the A5 sq, the borders and spacers and A4 sq plates so I’m really pleased with myself – mind you they have taken a week to do so far & ive still got A5, A6 & baby plates to do! I haven’t decided whether I’m going to do the club plates either. Still, at least I can lay my hands on a plate when I want to use it without having to trawl through the lot. Love and hugs Alison xxx

  9. Oh Barbara you definitely are a tease. I’m hoping to watch all the shows unless the new puppy prevents me. Hope not, she’s a very good girl at the moment. Look forward to what you have to show us – I’ve not had time to play with the Tina Cox plates yet 🤣🤣

  10. Do you think all bank managers have access to a therapy hotline! LOL
    Can’t wait to see all the new goodies next weekend.
    Take care, keep safe everyone.

  11. Blimey, not the best time for me to have paid out for a new (2nd hand!) car then ! What a tease you are. I’m about to have the new rainbow paper and Jayne’s rose plate falls through the letterbox. X

  12. Hello Barb, you really are a tease, can’t wait to see what’s coming for us avid shoppers. Love the new stencils, just have to sit on my hands for a while. Take care and stay safe everyone. Bx

  13. Sounds like you have some exciting new products up your sleeve! Can’t wait for the shows and big reveal x
