Take a walk in the garden with me….

Take a walk in the garden with me….

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Been prepping for Sunday’s rather special One Day Special. Remember those fab Garden Groovi Plates by Linda Williams? Well, we’ve turned them into a magnificent collection of Garden Stamps. Honestly! I can‘t stop building scenes with them! The possibilities are endless! And as if that wasn’t irresistible already, have you got those Entwined Season stamps I drew a few months ago? These ones: Wait till you build the scenes within these frames! Like this:…

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…

Happy Day – Clarity Day!

Happy Day – Clarity Day!

Hi there Happy friday! In fact Happy Day – Clarity Day! Sitting here, looking out of my SHAC-Shack window, waiting to go live on Facebook and finish our lovely Humming bird postcard, and am thinking about what we should e doing today. Dave wrote a great blog on Wednesday on Clarity Matters, about where we should be and where we are. Today, we should be scurrying around the huge lovely hall in Ditton, welcoming our Clarity guests to our Open…

It’s a Wrap!

It’s a Wrap!

Hi there. Thanks so much for popping in. After another week of chillin in the SHAC Shack with my fellow doodlers – Facebook is full of Mandarin Ducks! It’s good for the soul, it really is. I just watched the news for the first time in a week. Ended up shouting at the box because of selfish people and career politicians, then crying my eyes out because of evil child abuse. Such a roller coaster of emotion – and can…

Stop don’t stop.

Stop don’t stop.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Been working away on my own up here above the garage in the SHAC Shack. It’s comical. There are about 400 of us in here at 10am, and them as quickly as you show up, you all go again. Like a murmuration of starlings… Busy is definitely my solution. All the time I am busy, I am distracted. It’s always been that way. As soon as I stop working I flounder. Just as well…

More than Words..

More than Words..

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Glorious sunny day here in the southeast of little ol’ England. If I write fast, I may even get to sit in the garden for an hour, so forgive the spelling as I whizz across the keyboard!! Tomorrow we’re back on HOCHANDA at 6pm with a lovely ODS: it’s our Poetry Plates. They are very special. Mel and I drew the frames when we went to France one year with the Design team, and…

Saturday – A Day to regroup.

Saturday – A Day to regroup.

Hi there. Thanks for checking in with me. Glad you’re here. Saturdays are my Regroup-and-Consider-the-Week-ahead-Day. Saturdays are my Laundry-and Clean-the-Kitchen-Floor-Day. Saturdays are my Switch-off-from-the-World-Day. What about you? What are Saturdays in your world? Or have all your days rolled into a chain of 24-hour episodes? Having had our routines wiped away, I’m hearing plenty of “what day is it?”! I have always worked from home a lot. Especially any art-related tasks. They ALL get done here in what has now…

Innocence…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Hope your day has been a good one? Beautiful and sunny here in the Southeast of England today! I ran a food delivery over to my parents’ house this afternoon. Dave ran the shop gauntlet earlier, while we were all merrily doodling; then I took over, so that he could get back to PPE production. It was good to see Mum and Dad, even at a distance. We had a good old catch up,…
