Thanks for popping in. Last day of what has been another very challenging year for many of us. Has it been a good year? Well, I’m still writing and you’re still reading, so I guess that’s a good thing! Just got to stay grateful and keep smiling.
At Clarity we have endeavoured to travel gently, be the Calm in the Storm. It’s been a challenge for all of us, to keep pedalling, keep getting up, keep staying positive, hasn’t it. But at midnight tonight, we say goodbye to what has been a year to remember, and look forward to 2022. Will it be better? Will it be worse? Will it be more of the same? Who knows. But one thing is certain: it will be, and it will be what it is. So we may as well get our One Day at a Time pants on! Good thing is they are disposable. Every morning is another day, and a fresh pair of pants! Taking it from the top every day!
I have to say, when I look back at this year with my creative hat on, the art crew at Clarity have come up with some superb new stuff! Despite the noise and stresses of 2021, we’ve designed some very cool stamps and Groovi plates and dies and stencils!
What was new this year? Well, the Lino Cut designs were born early…
Some superb panel stencils followed, which went down very well…
We took the panels and grids idea one step further with our Layout stamps and plates too. Remember?
And the little Artblock stamps proved very popular too!
The Doodle Dies were born this year. Proved very popular indeed..
Then we came up with a wonderful Custom Stamp concept, which was well timed and well received…
Goodness me! When I scroll back through my photos in 2021, I see just how creative and industrious we are! And I haven‘t even mentioned the Groovi grids, the Calligraphy Contour plates or the Floral Overlay concepts!
And so much more arty goodness! Speaking of Goodness, should we not say Güdness?? Haven’t those little Güd People been a tonic?
And the Moments of Clarity! And the Pyjama Parties on a Friday night! And the SHAC SHAC on a Tuesday and Thursday with Paul, Linda and myself! And the Spa Retreat, which was brilliant. And all the TV shows on the Craft Store! Add that lot to LIFE, to the strains and stresses of LIFE as it has been for a while now, and I conclude that Clarity rocks. The people that sail in the good ship Clarity rock. The DT, the artists, the helpers, the staff, the whole crew. What a formidable team we are.
Thing is though, if you weren’t there, to make for and to entertain, what would be the point or possibility? There would be none! So I thank you personally for keeping Clarity going. You do, you know. You really do.
As we say goodbye to 2021, let me say this: we shall be very glad to keep you company throughout the coming year. We have lots of creative goodness already planned, made and being packed today!
Tomorrow I shall blog the upcoming January events, so we can make a plan together. Together we are better.
