The SHAC Rocks…

The SHAC Rocks…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Just want to shine a light on our SHAC, our wonderful Safe Happy and Creative group. It started on the first day of Lockdown in 2020, and it’s been going ever since. In the beginning when we didn’t know what was going on in the world, we stuck together every single day, and there were over 500 of us; nowadays there are still 200 loyal and lovely Shackers. We meet twice a week, Mondays…

It’s the little things….

It’s the little things….

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s been a good, busy, productive Monday. How about yours? Started off putting air in the SHAC-Bus tyres, and figuring out a plan for us. Always best to know where you’re headed when you’ve got 200+ passengers! It was an enjoyable SHAC session, doodling daisies – a symbol of innocence, simplicity and joy. Which is okay. We could all do with a dose of innocence, simplicity and joy once in a while, eh. If…

Feeling Güd!

Feeling Güd!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It was great being back in the SHAC SHAC today! Cor. You don’t realise how much you miss something until you do it again! Well, let me rephrase that! You don’t realise how much you miss SOME things until you do them again! That’s better. Driving the SHAC bus is a güd thing. It feels güd. As I said, once a week works now, for most of us. But should things change, and should…

A Moment of Clarity

A Moment of Clarity

Hey there Thanks for popping in. I have some really exciting news to share with you! I mentioned in the last Clarity Craft Club newsletter I wrote last week, so you may already have received that if you’re in the club, so to speak! It has been a while since I last did A Moment of Clarity. Barb’s Workin’ Life, as you know, has been put on the old backburner for the last few weeks. But this week she’s getting…

Craft-along-a-Barbie – Part 2

Craft-along-a-Barbie – Part 2

Hi there Thanks for popping in. How has your day been? Have you enjoyed it? I have.! Mind you, it got off to a very shaky start. Cannot tell you why I get so anxious and fearful – but it seems to kick in in the wee small hours, when I wake up. The head hooks into something, starts gnawing at it, then starts whizzing, starts projecting and picking up momentum. By 5am I may as well get up, because…

Paisley & Leaves!

Paisley & Leaves!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. You may recall a few weeks back I started to illustrate a new Groovi 9-piece Sampler for Paul to use in the weekly Groovi Tuesday on Facebook LIVE. I just thought it would be cool to tackle a different design, having focussed on that Butterfly Wreath since Groovi Tuesday was introduced. Well, I finished it off and passed it over to Lucy to work her magic and turn it into a Groovi plate. Et…

Exquisite Butterflies

Exquisite Butterflies

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. The sun is streaming in through the window, the shoots are just starting to green on the trees, and spring is in the air – at last! Is it time to pull out our short-sleeved tops and shorts yet? Not quite!! But we can certainly get in the warm weather mood with these superb butterflies (with their cut-to-fit masks) illustrated by Cherry Green. You may recall that I talked about them in the SHAC…
