NEWSFLASH! PAUL TO THE RESCUE!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Let me fill you in on what’s happening at Clarity Towers today. So we got a phone call last night. Unfortunately, Dawn Bibby is unwell, and has had to cancel the One Day Special which was scheduled to begin this evening at 6pm. Big ask, but could we help? So I got on the phone to Paul, and we came up with an idea. You see, it is pretty tricky to rustle up 5…

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. Can’t stop long. Got a date with Dave. He’s taking me to the flicks! Guess which film….I’ll give you a clue….

Grace called yesterday, and was raving about it. Lucky girl got comp…

Woohoo !!! What a mammoth job this has been! See lovely Anna patiently and painstakingly…

Shockorrer! There’s still a workable space though…. At times like this, when the clock is ticking, energy is dwindling, and that lovely bed is calling, there’s only one thing for it: SCRAP BOX !! I never throw anything away. It really is a condition,…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. And thanks for watching and cheering Maria along this afternoon on HOCHANDA! She did so well, didn’t she?!

YouTube Tuesday 3-in-1 Floral Frames

Hi there! Thanks for popping in! Paul, Simon and I been recording new YouTubes today actually, in readiness for the next few weeks. Paul and I both find Youtubing far more stressful than TV. Isn’t that strange?! I think it’s because you haven’t got anybody to bounce off; you’re on your own, every silence is yours to deal with, whereas a good presenter will always fill the gap for you and guide the show. The advantage is that you can…

P for POTTERY!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. TGIF! What are you up to this weekend? Anything exciting? Got anything crafty planned? I have…. Pottery tomorrow morning! Woohoo!!! It’s a throwdown session, in addition to the Wednesday class. Who says I’m addicted?! Can’t wait. Although I have to say that there is so much more to the art of pottery than working on a wheel. I want to learn the skill for sure, but I get a real buzz out of building…
