It has been so good to get together again. For many it was the first time they had ventured out into a crowd since Covid, so you can imagine that was quite something. The Spa Hotel is a beautiful venue, and the staff are…

Heads up! White Van Driver

Heads up! White Van Driver

Hi there Thanks for popping in. A little hazard warning to the wise. There’s a White Van Driver around the Tunbridge Wells Area. Moreover, it’s a SHE – and it’s ME! It’s a biggun too. Much taller and wider than usual. AND it’s got a useful tail lift thingy, which I have also mastered! Amazing what you can do when you have to. The Spa Hotel is all ready to welcome our Parchment retreat Guests now, the shop is looking…

Journaling – I think I cod bare my sole in a happy plaice…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Here’s a brand new journaling set by our Sam Crowe, that Leonie is showcasing on The Craftstore today (2nd show at 2pm) . I remember having a long Facetime chat to Sam about these a while ago. Mainly because I couldn’t get my head round the designs! But once she had explained it to me, I was 100% converted. The notelets and list stamps for example. She said, “aren’t you always writing notes on…

This too shall pass…

This too shall pass…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. How are you? How am I? Or perhaps the question we should be asking is WHO are you? And WHO am I? I seem to wake up most mornings wondering what the hell is going on in England, in Europe, in the world. And I often catch myself wondering what I am supposed to be doing, and which role I should be playing in response to the world we live in now. Which brings…

Thoroughly enjoyed this one. I love her artwork. It is just a pleasure to…

I’ve got a Güd Feeling about this!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Just prepping for tomorrow’s two Facebook Live events at 3pm and 7pm. Thought I’d shine a little light on the afternoon Moment of Clarity, and the little Güd Folk. We like these! Do you remember when we started doodling these little Gnomes last December? Where does the time go? If you missed the SHAC episode, it all started HERE and we started to colour them in HERE We ended up with these little Güd…

Festival of Clarity coming up!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Mind the piles of demo boxes and crafty gear as you come in though! Bomzitit springs to mind. The cats would never find their way out of here!

Everything but the kitchen sink is going up to the TV studios tomorrow, in readiness for the BIG WEEKEND : It’s our Clarity 28th Birthday! Woohoo. Glad to still be here…

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…
