Thanks for popping in. My bags and boxes are all packed and ready for TV tomorrow. Just had a conversation with Paul, who is driving us up there in his lovely, shiney new car. He was so excited to tell me he can stack 2 big blue bins on top of each other in the new boot. “So much more space!” he said. “AND there’s a false bottom in it”. Woah. Steady on there !!
I had to laugh… sad innit. You get a fab new car, and you’re stoked because you can get more TV demo boxes in it!! Want to hear the best bit? He did a dry run with empty bins, to make sure they all fit! What a guy.
To kick off our super seven hours of TV over Thursday and Friday (see schedule below), we are starting off in Japan. For those of you who came to the Summer Retreats in August, you may recognise the new designs – with a few additions added.
Birch Tree & Bamboo 2 Way Overlay Stamp Sets
Barbara’s SHAC Enso Enlightenment & Bijou Japanese Symbols Collection
More beautiful symbols, and then all of them in small too. I needed the bijou ones, so I figured you would too!
Next up: Barbara’s Star Flower Spray Stamp & Stencil Collection
How about some inspiration from the design team
The Enso Enlightenment stamps are my new faves. Wait till you see them in Teabag art. Awesome. And our DT friends clearly like them too..
Let’s look at what the enso circle symbolizes …
At first glance, the enso symbol appears no more than a sweep of the brush to create a rough circle. But it represents many things: beauty in imperfection, the art of letting go of expectations, the circle of life, and connection.
The enso is a manifestation of the artist at the moment of creation, and the total acceptance of our innermost self.
