Time for a Spring Clean!

Time for a Spring Clean!

The Clarity Crew have had a look around the shop and had a bit of a tidy up.So we thought that since the sun is shining (and Barb and Dave are away) it would be a perfect opportunity to have a bit of a “Spring Clean” and make some room for lots of new goodies which are soon to arrive (wink, wink, nudge, nudge!)…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Now I have had to abandon Operation Ally Pally, and turn my attention to the TV shows today. 2pm – 4pm, it’s stamps and stencils. then at 6pm, it’s Groovi Floral ABC time! With all this running around, the weight should be dropping off me! Not so though. Trouble is, I keep eating chocolate to stay awake! Mmmm. That’s my excuse – and I’m sticking to it!

Oh! What a Beautiful Book!

Oh! What a Beautiful Book!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. It’s been a long time coming, this Groovi floral alphabet. But it’s coming together very nicely now. 26 pretty little letters, each depicting flowers pertaining to their letter. As you can see though, we have added upper and lower case letters to each plate too. Paul and I are putting the finishing touches on the demos ready for Sunday evening, and today I think I’d like to show you the quintessence of teamwork. A…
