Mele Kalikimaka!

Hi there. Hope you are enjoying your weekend? I’ve been hanging out in Hawaii in my head, which is just great. Inking and doodling and colouring. So glad we are staying a second week. This doodle week has been a mammoth one! On the one hand perhaps we could have gone with just one photo, and kept it simple. But on the other hand, we had such blast, drew loads of new things, hibiscus, surf shacks, surfers, bamboo – and…

Serenity Saturday…

Serenity Saturday…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Much cooler today. Wind and rain very welcome in this garden! Spent a pleasant morning spring cleaning, and getting my house in order, which is always good for the head. Nothing like a tidy up to convince you you’ve got more control!! And nothing like finding a mouse nest in a drawer to make you feel you’ve completely lost it! Mmm. Time to get a cat again? Romeo and Juliet would never have tolerated…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Hot innit! Just finishing up on Hochanda with a couple of Mixed media hours. Glad you enjoyed the demos! I do like the old GelPress, don’t you? I did do an extra little demo, an extra, just in case there was time. But 6 is plenty. So here’s a little card which uses the Mixed Impression Beach n Pebble stamps… I used one of our new Mask shapes… They’re excellent for all sorts of…

Ocean Swirls.

Ocean Swirls.

Hi there Thanks for joining me. Hot or what?!? Just a quickie today, to shed a little light on the upcoming TV shows tomorrow at 9am and 1pm on HOCHANDA. My favourite kind of arty, grungy, Gelpressy printy stuff! A beautiful new Mixed Impressions double set, called Ocean Swirl, plus a double stencil set. The large loose pieces are just what you NEED in your life!! I got up at stupid o’clock this morning, to get the Hochanda filming done…

Too hot to think.

Too hot to think.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s no good. Way too hot up here in the SHAC-Shack to rustle up anything remotely creative this evening! Been prepping demos all afternoon, for Friday’s 9am and 1pm Mixed Media Shows on TV HOCHANDA.com. Lots of Gelpress and paint, which I love! Got so engrossed in the art process, I didn’t realise how sweltering it was in here under the eaves! Not until the paint stopped working because it got too hot –…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in . As promised, today is the day we announce the winners of all the giveaways and prizes over the HappyDaysClarityDays. It’s taken a while!

Grace and I have worked our way through all the lists, and picked winners where there was an…

Downtime…

Downtime…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Wiped out today. After our virtual Open Days, I could do with a week off! We usually go on holiday about now! Not this year! This week we’re off to Hawaii on a Shac-Shack Tour! That’ll be fun. Sometimes the memory is as good as the real deal. Sometimes it’s even better. Certainly a lot cheaper!! Speaking of holidays, you know I finished that Wasgij jigsaw the other week? Have a closer look at…

Hi there lovely peeps! What a weekend! Long, but fun! It has been great hustling back and forth across the ocean with Gracie, keeping these virtual Clarity Open Days going. She has done such a cracking job, as have our lovely DT friends, who have been posting and sharing, inspiring and entertaining. The cool thing about Gracie being 5 hours behind us is that she is still going strong, while I am winding down slowly. So more giveaways on the…

Get Happy – Get Groovi!!

Get Happy – Get Groovi!!

Good morning! Great to have your company again! The Clarity Virtual Open Days have been such fun so far. Now usually, it would all be over in the Hall. We would have packed everything up yesterday evening, and everybody would have been wending their merry way home last night or this morning if they had further to travel. But today, since it’s all virtual, since it’s all safe and online, we can keep it going! As soon as Grace wakes…
