Thanks for popping in. Writing extra fast here, so keep up! It’s time to trundle up to the TV studios and get ready for this evening’s launch of a set of Stamps and groovi plates which will be familiar with many of you – we drew them together in the SHAC!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the SHAC, during lockdown we got together on Facebook LIVE every day Mon-Fri at 10am for two years. We doodled, we learned to draw, we laughed, we cried, we kept each other company, we gave each other a reason to get up every morning – in short we stayed Safe, Happy And Creative SHAC (also Stay Home And Craft!). FOR TWO YEARS – and beyond.
As I mentioned yesterday, next Monday, the SHAC Bus No. 300 will be leaving the depot again. 10 am on the dot! I think it’s time we got together again, don’t you? I have been listening to you though, and to my head. I think once a week on a Monday will be a good place to start. We can always go on special tours if there’s somewhere special we fancy!
The other thing is, we are launching our SHAC art range on TV. After 300 hours of doodling and drawing, there’s a beautiful library of artwork which is asking to be made into stamps and Groovi plates – and we have a story to tell!
A really, really cool one. From the heart. It’s quite something actually. What started out as a simply desperate way to keep sane and safe, has developed into quite a formidable community. And personally, I cannot begin to tell you how much you fellow shackers have helped me during the last few months. You have no idea. The messages, the letters, the cards, the gifts, the support – overwhelming and a life-saver.
Throughout Lockdown and beyond, our friends at Create & Craft have always supported what we do in the SHAC. They also saw it as a great safe place for crafters. Now they are giving us a platform to promote it. Once a month we have scheduled a couple of hours live TV where we will showcase SHAC designs, and talk about our community.
This evening, we launch a superb floral collection, and next week out SHAC shows begin!!
Here’s tonight’s menu…
Each design contains an A5sq Stamp & Mask Set, an A6 Stamp Set and a A4 Stencil – all available individually and in sets, but the One Day Special is all 4 sets with an amazing saving!
and a dinky little Dahlia Words A6 Stamp set
Also as 4 x A5sq Groovi Plates
So much artwork from the design team, I guess they liked them!
What a gallery!!
Anyway. Must dash, said the Mexican. Not really. Easy does it. And I won’t be banging out demos like a loony at 6pm either! I’ve got one nice one….
Today 6pm and Paul 9pm. Tomorrow 10am and Paul 2pm. Can you tell I’m excited? Just a little bit!
