ABC, 123 – A Celtic flavoured Design of the Week

ABC, 123 – A Celtic flavoured Design of the Week

Hi there

Thanks for popping in. Beautiful sunny day here in the southeast today. Almost T-shirt and shorts weather! Not that you’d ever catch me in shorts!! I look down at the legs that walk me around nowadays, and wonder who’s got mine!! That wicked witch certainly did a number on me when she swopped my legs for this pair!

Had a laugh with Grace this evening. Conversation went like this…

Grace “How’s Dave?“
Me "He’s ok. Went to the Doctors this afternoon”
Grace “Which Doctor?”
Me "No, not the Witch Doctor. We’ll see how we get on with the GP first, then if that doesn’t work, we’ll try him”

Anyway. Enough woffle. I do hope that the storms have abated elsewhere, and things are calming down in the North and in Wales. Climate change is certainly real.

Time to shine a light on this weeks Celtic style Design of the Week, which, incidently, will work perfectly with the New & Exclusive launching on Create & Craft at 4pm on Thursday.

Large – ABC – A4 square

Small – ABC – A5 square

Large & Small – 123

To celebrate 30 years in business, we have reduced them by 30% plus Craft Club discount – available HERE

Here is some inspiration from the design team

Such lovely art samples! And such a lovely alphabet design. Well worth investing in, if you make personalised cards.

Time to return to my Jigsaw puzzle. I started a 1,000 piece one yesterday, and so far, I’ve found the outer frame – but that’s all!! I do like a jigsaw. Calms the mind. Listening to a good book and doing a puzzle – perfect down time – Great way to relax for me. I just finished another Rachel Joyce novel. After Miss Benson’s Beetle, which was blimming brilliant, I found another one – first of a trilogy by the same author: The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. Another superb novel. So surreal, yet so real. Narrated by Jim Broadbent. Excellent.

Just in case you didn’t catch the SHAC on Monday at 10am, we have decided that a second SHAC session on a Thursday evening at 7pm will be beneficial. So we’ll start that extra hour of hanging out together doodling next week, 2nd November.

Quote for today:

Alone we are strong. Together we are stronger.

Love always,

  1. I love the Celtic plates and I can’t wait for the new plates. That Linda Williams is a marvel 😘🤣
    I have just bought my husband a jigsaw advent calendar – you get a small portion of the jigsaw every day! I’ll let you know how that works out. I’ll have no dining room table for December!!

  2. I’ve got the alphabet why haven’t I got the numbers ?! Love that gem one at the end ! I sat outside for a while this afternoon with Mikey cat, he’s a bit lonely after we lost his sister in September. I’m getting ready to start a jigsaw, I’m listening to Miss Benson’s Beetle, currently just before I go to sleep, good job I have a timer set, I’ve usually gone in 15 mins! Then I have to wind back a bit ! Enjoying it though! Thanks for the recommendations. Need something to take my mind off things that’s for sure. Fab quote for today. X

  3. Beautiful plates. Pleased to be doing another Shak on a Thursday. I too feel like you and many others. Just hope it calms for you and everyone. Thank you for passing my gift to Glynnis. Just disappointed I didn’t make retreat. It looked very intense and interesting. Much love

  4. I just had to laugh at your conversation with Grace – laughing is medicine for the soul ❤️❤️ looking forward to the TV shows they’ll be a real tonic

  5. Love these plates, Celtic designs really appeal to me. Must be the primitive in my genes.
    Hope Dave is OK and improving.
    I’m a bit on edge as I have a follow up visit to the eye clinic in the morning. I can’t wait to start crafting again as everything I’ve tried this week has gone skew whiff. Maybe it was too soon. At least I can see the TV so I won’t miss the shows.
    Keep well.🍒

  6. Hope Dave is ok. Take some time out for real rest occasionally you guys. Advice from experience! X
    Hugely sad occasion here tomorrow, young wonderful family , community loving man snatched from us at just 64.

  7. Hope Dave is ok. Thank you so much for my Birthday card for yesterday. I had a lovely day especially as the sun was shining and it wasn’t freezing cold. I think the new Nana cuddles was the best bit though. Looking forward to the shows and having two Shac sessions again xxx

  8. Had a giggle reading your conversation with Grace. You were quick off the mark there.
    Love the idea of another shack. Pity for me, I cannot watch it live; would be 5 am in Melbourne. Has to be a catch up next day. Take care and best wishes for Dave.

  9. Hello Barb, I have just had an out loud laugh about your conversation with Grace, that was a very quick comeback. Hope Dave is ok and the visit to the GP went well. These plates are beautiful and the design team samples are as always inspiring and lovely. Take care all. Bx

  10. Hope Dave is ok, and the doctor sorted him, which (witch) ever one he saw!
    As you know Barb, I love all things Celtic, can’t wait to have a play with the amazing Linda’s new plates!
    Your quote of the day is so true, and relevant with the extra SHAC session coming along! The SHAC has meant so much to so many of us, and is so much more than the chance to doodle and create together. It has strengthened friendships and the whole Clarity Family together, helping us all through the good times and difficult ones.
    Thank you 😊

  11. Hope Dave is okay, sending you both best wishes. I do have the A5 square and number spacer plates, love the Celtic designs and looking forward to seeing Linda’s new designs. Had a lovely surprise when I got home yesterday, my monthly club goodies had arrived, all great, thank you. xx

  12. I have just seen the Jim Broadbent film of the book you mentioned.. Hope Dave’s visit was helpful. Unfortunately I won’t be able to watch live on Thursday but I will watch it later. Have fun. Take care.

  13. Thank you so much Barbara, for the extra Shac hour!
    I always have to watch on catch up, because alsoon mondays I go to my mum who suffers from dementia.
    Since I have become a widow this year I struggle even more with what is going in in the world, it really gets to me at the moment.
    So thank you xXx
