Thanks for popping in. I won’t tell you how long it took me to locate the grave accent on my Mac for the a in the title! And blow me! I can‘t find it again now!
å à. Aha. Bingo. Just learned something new!! Well what a find!! Eureka moment. The trick is to not give up I suppose. To not get frustrated, to make the decision to figure it out – and even if it takes all night! Little did I know that the QWERTY board on the Mac works exactly the same as the I-Phone. Of course it does. Hold the letter down longer, and a box will appear with numbers. Type in the appropriate number – and bingo!!

Quote for today:
The weeks sure are flying by! We’re half way through the year! What a year it has been too. I attended the funeral of an old friend this afternoon. He was a close family friend, whose death was sudden and unexpected. When we saw him at Dad’s funeral in January, nobody would ever have thought that dear Stuart would be following Dad so soon. You just never know what‘s round the corner, do you. 74 years old. Well, you know what they say: the only guarantee in Life is that you will die.
I remember our dear Jayne’s funeral as if it were yesterday too. Jayne Nestorenko. Good friend. Good woman. She also left far too early. She’s in good company now though. I do hope she hooks up with Dad and Stuart. They all had such a bone dry sense of humour.
The designs this week are all Jayne’s. Superb. They never get old for me. If you knew Jayne you’ll recognise her flourish. She had a unique style. I think of her often.
30 years in business certainly merits a hurrah and a special price of 30% off + club discounts on these beauties – but just for the week. They’re almost too precious to discount, but they are also magnificent designs, and they have to feature in our weekly highlights!
Available in A4sq and A5 Stamp & Mask Sets
Then we decided to make them into Bijou size stamp sets
and we also have them in A4sq and A5 Groovi plates
All available HERE
How about some inspiration from the Design Team
Enchanting art samples. hats off to our Design Team. I remember before Jayne died, Paul and I went to see her, and showed her how her illustrations translated into Groovi parchment art. She couldn’t believe it. She was so thrilled. And I remember organising a phone call on Live TV with her when we showcased her artwork on HOCHANDA. She was so chuffed. We made sure that she left knowing she was right at the top of her art game. Her designs and artwork were back on TV, hugely popular, and Jayne Nestorenko was a household name.
I must admit that it has felt pretty strange working on Christmas and wintery TV prep these past few days, when we’re having a heatwave ! All part of the 12 Days of Christmas Event on Create & Craft. I’m all set now, and feeling festive, so bring it on!!
