Happy Sunday !

Happy Sunday !

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Have been clearing away all the demo gear from Friday’s TV shows this afternoon. I didn’t touch half the demos, but you know how it is – fail to prepare, prepare to fail! Thing is, you see, if you don’t have everything exactly there in front of you, ready to reach for, you really have NO time to start looking and faffing. Even after all these years, I go through the demos again and…

Feeling Güd!

Feeling Güd!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It was great being back in the SHAC SHAC today! Cor. You don’t realise how much you miss something until you do it again! Well, let me rephrase that!

New Stencils on the Horizon…

New Stencils on the Horizon…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Still ticking boxes like a loonie here. It’s the only way forward for this old chick at the moment. Keeping busy and keeping focussed. We can call it being mindful, and we can also call it staying on top of things. Bit of both. With the world in such turmoil, we crafters are very, very lucky to have creative distraction. I was talking to Linda Williams this morning, about the next Craftalong we’re doing…

If you go down to the woods today…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. This every day blogging seems to be a challenge at the moment, so bear with me while I get back in my stride. The head is all over the place at the moment. Proper full on spin cycle. But to lighten the mood, let me take you back to Friday afternoon, when we ventured up to the 100 acre woods on the Ashdown Forest, to visit Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh’s old haunts….

Be Still…

Be Still…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Busy day at work today. Such a good buzz at Clarity. So many creative minds buzzing and clicking and whirring! We’ve got a lot of loveliness in the pipeline, and there is so much goes into designing a new range of stamps, or a new collection of papers, or a bunch of new stencils. From the sketched drawings to the labels on the packaging. And since we do pretty much everything inhouse nowadays, that’s…
