Hi there!

Thanks for popping in! Can you believe that we’re edging up on December again?! Where has this year gone? And what a year again! I was listening to a podcast yesterday, about Life as it is nowadays. It has certainly changed, hasn’t it? The psychiatrist was saying there has been a massive shift, a paradigm shift in our trust as humans, in our trust that things will be handled correctly, that we are safe, that people will help us, that those in high places will represent us fairly and not betray us, that we have not been thrown to the wolves. He reckoned that our fear of being forsaken as a people  – whether justified or not -has not only affected us mentally, but also physically. I can relate to that, I really can. But what‘s the answer? Here’s my answer: stop speculating, stop predicting, forecasting and fretting about what hasn’t happened yet.  Deal with Life ONE DAY AT A TIME. All we have to do today is get through today. Tomorrow will roll round soon enough, but today is TODAY.

And in our little Craft Clarity World, that can only mean one thing!


Yep, it’s that time of year again, when we have a Bloggy Blitz Sale of all things non Clarity in the lead up to GRAY FRIDAY!

And before you ask, YES. You can use/redeem your Gift Vouchers in the sale. But Gift Vouchers aren’t actually in the sale….




  1. I hope that all goes well for you today Barbara 🙏
    Yes, living one day at a time has been my mantra for about 4 years now, due to many reasons. It continues to serve me well. Sending love and caring hugs 🤗 to you and your family xxxx

  2. I love that name– Gray Friday!!!
    So much better than Black — that makes you feel not well and dull.
    Yes I am living by the day not only because the virus but also because moving house within a week time! Starting a new life and made choices all by myself……strange feelings.
    Take care Barbara and hope all is well with Dave and your Mum and Dad.
    Lots of love, Trijntje Huppel

  3. Good luck at the hospital and have a successful shopping trip in Morrisons. I’m off for my booster today ! Hurrah! Then checking in on Mum after she’s been to her lunch club as my sister has COVID – she’s Mum’s main carer, living in next road to her. Luckily, I’m only 10 mins away in car, depending on traffic of course !

    What do you mean gift vouchers not in the sale ? 😹😹 I was going to stock up to keep myself going through the year 😹😹

  4. One day at a time is the way forward. Hope all goes well with your Dad at the hospital & your trip round Morrisons with your Mom. OH used to loose his mom in Morrisons as she used to remember something halfway round & backtrack to get it. She must have walked miles on every shopping trip.
    Will check out my stash then make a list to go on to the website.
    Will be glad when my eye op on Wednesday is over & then hopefully I will feel less anxious than I am today. A crafty session is needed me thinks – great for forgetting what is going on around you but first I must get the bed changed & washing done then I know we are ok for a few days as OH does the cooking.

  5. Brilliant – but I’m saving myself for the big ‘un on Friday (got a BIG shopping list of stamps). Hats off to your fulfilment team, they are well up to speed, I hope they get a bonus at Christmas, they really deserve it!
    Hope your day goes well.
    Maggie (Bendy Yorkite)
    PS How’s Dave doing?

  6. Hope all goes well with your Dad at hospital, and your Mum gets all she wants from Morrisons. Travel gently, one day at a time. Hugs to you all. xx

  7. Hi Barb, hope all went well with your Dad at the hospital yesterday, and that the shopping with Mum was successful and you got all they needed. Off to check out the sale now. Have my eye on some things. Take care and stay safe everyone. Bx
