Shen Yun in Wo king

Shen Yun in Wo king

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Had a day off today. Took a quick trip to China and back with my parents. It was epic! Quite a long way to go for a couple of hours, but well worth it. Such lovely people! Did I say we went to China? Well, not quite. We went to Wo King, to see Shen Yun. If you haven’t heard of it, Wo King, it’s near Guildford off the M25. Shen Yun? Now THAT’S…

Grace and Clarity…

Hi there!Thanks for popping in. Had a super meeting with a few members of the marketing team this morning. Teamwork certainly makes the dream work here. One thing became apparent very quickly during the meeting: we are all approaching Clarity sales from the same place – kind and caring. Whilst this may be neither the business norm nor the most lucrative way, we all agreed that it is the only acceptable way for us. Hey! When did we ever toe…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Busy times here! So glad you liked the fabulous Room with a View Fresh Cut Dies that we launched yesterday on HOCHANDA too! We did have to go up against Dancing on Ice at the same o’clock, but hey! We held our own!! Thanks for buying and investing in us, and thanks to Paul for taking over on the shows today. I had something unexpected crop up back at base, so had to bow…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Can’t stay long; got to get ready for the 6pm One Day Special on HOCHANDA! It’s a 2-hour launch. Phew. What happened there at 2pm ?!? We thought you’d like them – the Doodleology stamps. But sold out within the first hour?! And believe you me – we have been making these sets in readiness since well before Christmas! So pleased and relieved you saw what I saw. We are going to have so…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Early doors here. Dave’s gone to sort out the plumbing noise in the new building. Every time somebody flushes a loo, it sounds like we’re under attack from above!! And we’re planning on recording YouTubes there! Paul and I are prepping telly projects for tomorrow. These are the first TV shows of the year, so we want to dyb-dyb-dyb-dob-dob-dob! Either way, we’ve done the best we can do, we’ve put in the action; we’re…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Friday’s blog a private peek, right? Lovely sunny day here in Kent. How about your neck of the woods? We went for our New Year’s Day walk on the 1st as planned, but just over to the Ashdown Forest. It was rather foggy that day, and definitely welly weather, very muddy underfoot. My feet always get cold in wellies, so before we set off I thought I’d put on a second pair of socks….

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. Been prepping away here for Sunday’s TV shows with Paul. First the 2-4 show with those amazing Doodleology stamps. Cannot stop playing with them! Then there’s a new format at 6pm, with a new TWO hour ODS (One Day Special) launch, instead of just one hour. By the time we usually walk down the counter and talk about what’s on offer, the hour’s nearly over! So we have decided that a 2 hour launch…

Happy New Year!Thanks for popping in! While Dave and I head down to the coast for our first of the year walk, please allow me to wish you health, happiness and joy in 2020. Here’s a little video which our Simon rustled up for us! May the New Year be kind to you and yours. Love and Hugs Barb xxx

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. In fact, thank you for popping in most days, as you do. I appreciate you, and even though you may not comment, I know you are there – and that’s a good thing. Remember when I was under attack back in June for ostensibly plagiarising artwork? That was a very low point for me, and without wanting to relive the whole headstorm, what I remember was the overwhelming show of support from friends and…

More?!? More?!?

More?!? More?!?

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Been doing even MORE prep for telly. Even though I knew yesterday that I had enough demos for the new Doodleology stampsets to easily cover the 2 hours, I thought I’d incorporate the new Texture Stamps too, because lovely Pam Kershaw mentioned that yesterday. Six hours later, and at least 5 arty demos later, I really need to move on! But these stamps are so cool! Thing is, even if I don’t get to…
