Get your gladrags on – we’ve got company!

Get your gladrags on – we’ve got company!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. We’ve got company this afternoon. Having a little Christmas catch-up with family who unfortunately had to cancel Christmas because of COVID. So we’ve been blitzing the house, making it nice. That’s the thing, isn’t it. We’re so used to rarely welcoming visitors nowadays, seldom even leaving the house, that it’s very easy to let the housework slide, let the ironing pile up, forget to put some lippy on or dress nicely. I saw an…

First Claritystamps of the Year

First Claritystamps of the Year

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s Monday the 10th of January already – where does the time go? Perhaps you watched TV yesterday? We launched our clever new Seasonal Wreaths – or should I say half-wreaths? Ironically, the time whizzes past even faster during a 2 hour TV show. I never feel as though I have done the demos justice. But hey. They all sold out, so you saw the benefits of the stamps despite the whirlwind! Maybe it’s…

When is a wreath also a tree?

Hi there Thanks for popping in! What a day this has been! Busy busy busy! And thank you also if you joined in the first SHAC of the year this morning at 10. I think those little doodle tiles will be fabulous when they’re done… I touched on the new stamps which we are showcasing on the TV on Sunday – the Seasonal Wreath stamps. They are rather special. You may recognise the flavour from the SHAC SHAC… The first…

Lost your Mojo? Tag it!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Thought I’d shed a little light o a cool TV show this evening. No, not the Pottery Throwdown! That was last night on Channel 4.

The TV Show in question is on the Craft Store. What time? 6pm. Who’s the star ? Paul…

Here’s to a Happy New Year!

Here’s to a Happy New Year!

Hi there Happy New Year! Went for a long walk up on the Southdown Forest with Grace and Dave this morning. Lots of folks had the same idea, but it was still pretty quiet. Perfect, sunny and warm. Slowly I can feel my head kicking back into design and work mode. Break’s over, and the cogs are starting to turn again. Decided to start a monthly bulletpoint calendar, a simple, arty scrappy thing, to put on my desk and doodle…
