A Moment of Clarity in review…

A Moment of Clarity in review…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Thanks for joining in yesterday evening for the Moment of Clarity if you did. We had about 160 guests, which is great on a Friday night! Those Doodle Discs and Tiles, designed by Tina Cox, really are a pleasure to play with. Here is the simple card I made, and a link to the video. Plenty of tricks n tips methinks… Our stats tell us there is a swing in numbers from Facebook viewing…

It’s National Smile Day!

It’s National Smile Day!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Just in case you need a nudge in the smile department …. it’s National Smile Day. Not to be confused with World Smile Day, which is much later, in November. National though? Given that the founders are two dentists in Illinois, I would hazard a guess that it’s the States. So whilst the cynic in me says that these two Dentists, in 2018, were probably drumming up business, it has to be said that…

Design of the Week and A Moment of Clarity

Design of the Week and A Moment of Clarity

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Late blog I know. I got caught up in the moment, doing pottery, smoothing out some pinch pots I have been making in readiness for the Clarity Open Days next week. Well, and before you could say “That’ll do Donkey” – it was 10 o’clock! They need time to dry out slowly, before they get bisque fired in the kiln. Then I have to wait 2 days before the kiln can be opened, then…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Thanks also for watching and supporting our SHAC Shows on TV today. I know the sun’s out, and folks are in the garden, but the show must go on!

Get Groovi with Tina tomorrow!

Get Groovi with Tina tomorrow!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. More dentist today. But this too shall pass. Quote for today? Living in the solution. Much better than living in the problem. So true! When something is wrong, it is much better to face it, work on rectifying it, than ignoring it and staying stuck in the problem. I have a wobbly front tooth. Eventually it will fall out all by itself. Better to deal with it now, while it’s still hanging on, and…

Try to relax…

Try to relax…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. The One Day Special is well underway on Create & Craft, Paul is doing a cracking job, and the Floral Bijou ABC is proving very popular – which is good news indeed! Paul and I had planned on sharing the TV hours, but I had to go to the dentist today, and it couldn’t be cancelled. The injections are wearing off now, and I’m not feeling great to be honest. But it has to…
