Yep, it is Tuesday again so it is time to shine a light on a favourite design and this week I thought we would have a little fashion parade with Hats, Bags & Shoes. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE these designs by friend Mel Turner!! They are in my all time top 10 for sure.
Available in stamps
To celebrate being in business for 30 years this year, we focus on a popular design, with 30% off + Club discount for a week! Available HERE
Here is some inspiration from the design team
Here are a couple of pieces I did myself. The boot with mask is the PERFECT frame for a little landscape…
I also remember the day a legend and personal shero, Orla Kiely, went out of business in September 2018. I designed an arty tribute to her – and here are those emotion-packed Wordchain stamps again. On a brayered painty scrap…
We are celebrating 30 years in business. I’ll say that again slowly: THIRTY YEARS. That’s about half my life that I have been flying the Clarity Flag. Oh boy, have I seen some changes. We’ve had a few ups and downs too. But up until today, I’ve always managed to stay away from the point of no return in business. Ironically, the bigger you get, the larger it looms. The stakes are just higher, and there’s more to consider, that’s all. I have young guns joining in the games, flash out of the starting blocks, building empires, often quite ruthless in their quest for success and fame. And I wonder where they will be in year 30.
Life is so precarious. We all walk such a fine line, whether healthwise, lovewise or business/workwise. Often we become victims of our own choices, often we get caught in the crossfire, often Life is just Life, and we get dealt a particular card. But the thing is, and here’s the quote of the day, which I must have quoted before – because it is my personal mantra :
It’s never the situation, but how we respond to it that ultimately affects us.
There it is. I think I love these designs because they ooze cool, elegant femininity – and strength. I love Orla Kiely because she did it. She made massive waves in the fashion and interior design world. HUGE waves. Waves do often crash for sure. But she made them. Brilliant.
If you haven’t got them or the masks, now would be a good time to join the growing group of women who are drawn to these Clarity images by Mel. If you are one of them, tell us below. I put my hand up, and I know I speak for Sam Crowe too. Who else?
Paul is gearing up for a superb New & Exclusive tomorrow, and I am having a quiet day, working in silence. That beautiful whirlwind of Grace left this morning, and I am trying to stay busy. Maybe pottery this afternoon. Some more work on that totem pole. AKA an hour with Dad.
