Hi there Thanks for popping in. Busy Monday. Always starts well in the SHAC, and today was no different.

If you missed it, then you can always catch up here: You may have caught me telling you about a pottery breakthrough I had yesterday. Well, #madeinmay friends! Sunday was a big day in the life of Barb…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Last minute blog. before we head up the apple and pears. #Madeinmay today? I received a lovely email from another Barbara, who said I had #madeherdayinmay, which was rather gratifying to hear. Me? I watched and cheered for our good friend Deborah Wheeler on Create & Craft today. She was evidently still feeling pretty poorly, but nonetheless, she kept going. So a big cheer to her for keeping the show entertaining and informative. I…

Going Retro with Deborah

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Have you enjoyed your day? Did you make something, dear #madeinmay buddy? I did! I made 3 bowls in preparation for the Open Days! Haven’t been on the wheel for ages, so was a bit apprehensive that I might have lost my touch. But no. These will turn beautifully tomorrow. It’s coming along nicely… Remember I said – in honour of our #madeinmay movement – that I would pick a random winner from all…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s been a busy day back in the Clarity saddle. The SHAC at 10 is always a great way to focus the mind. And those girls are certainly Hippy Chicks! Here’s a pic of the Hippy Bus we drew together previously… As I was saying this morning in the SHAC, I spent pretty much the whole week and weekend making, making, making. Making prints, making pots, making nice meals, making cards. Dave too. He…

Hi there Thanks for popping in! Blogging on my phone in the car, on the way back from a brilliant evening with the Gray family.

Floral Alphabet & Numbers

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Year of the Alphabet here at Clarity. And May is a super special one for me! I remember drawing this one, one letter at a time, in New Mexico of all places! Each letter represents a flower, so A for Allium, B for Bougainvillea, C for Cornflower, and so on. Also, as you will see when you look at the individual stamps, each letter also comes in two more sizes, upper and lower case….
