I think you will love these…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Been arty crafting all day here in the SHAC, and am all set and ready for the 9am HOCHANDA TV Show tomorrow, showcasing the new Doodleology Collection, designed by Cherry Green. These are just fabulous. I’ve prepped far more than I’ll ever be able to squeeze in in two hours (9am and 1pm), but the ideas just kept flowing – and you know how it is – just couldn’t stop! Here’s one of the…

Peace & Love – and a little Bling!

Peace & Love – and a little Bling!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Getting set for the Clarity Mixed Media TV Shows on HOCHANDA at 9am and 1pm on Friday, and thought I’d kill 2 birds with one stone, so to speak, and showcase the beautiful Christmas Window stamps that Paul is showcasing this evening at 6pm on HOCHANDA! How about a photo step by step… The first thing to note is that our Stampboard shapes cut like butter. Craft knife, scissors, paper trimmer – you decide!…

Keep Calm and Carry on…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Change is a-coming. You can feel it in the weather today. The temperature dropped and the clouds rolled in. Time to put a jumper on, maybe put the flip flops and sandals away. Thought I’d make some simple stencil art this evening, to reflect the shift in the weather patterns – and in our lives again. It seems we are hitting a stormy patch again, and while the birds fly away to warmer climes,…

Downtime

Downtime

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Have decided to step away from all things Clarity for a few days, and focus on my folks. I am sure you understand. The daily blog has been like my daily bread for many years. Since 15th October 2013 in fact, I have blogged every single day. And on the few and far between days when I have been on holiday or in a hole with no internet, our Paul has stepped into the…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Here’s a little poppet from the Flower Collection for you called Poppy, framed with the frame from our SHAC-Shack Kite set… Picked a page with Grace at the top…. Can we clean up the face and get rid of the print? Yep. White eraser pencil. Colour in, add a drop shadow – then tear up!! Really?? Mmmm. Maybe overcooked it a bit with the tearing! Keeps going undeterred…patches it up a little….mounts it on…

To thine own self be true

To thine own self be true

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Friday’s Blog a private peek, remember? Thought I’d dig a little deeper this afternoon, and take a closer look at those word stickers of mine. There’s a lot more to them than meets the eye. The very first saying at the very top of the first sheet is ONE DAY AT A TIME. I must say that to myself at least a dozen times a day… It’s the only way forward right now, don’t…

Gems, Doodles and Designer Papers….

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Thought I’d shine a light on what we’re doing in the SHAC-Shack this week, and show you how well transferring our doodles to our Designer papers works…. I mentioned this morning that Stuart has put together a very cool Barb’s Faves Set and called it THE SHAC PACK!! It’s for those doodlers who want to dip their toe in this kind of artwork at a really good price! £10 for 50 sheet of 8×8…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Typing extra fast here, because I’m back on HOCHANDA.com telly at 3pm with those adorable Printed Parchment Poppets. Yep we knew you’d love them! Got a bit tongue tied earlier, trying to explain that the front of these is like the back of our coloured parchment, and that you have to use the back as the front if you want to emboss patterns into coloured areas!! Hahahaha! Clear as mud, right? Maybe I’ll do…

Something New and Lovely.

Something New and Lovely.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. How has your day been? Mine has been great so far, so I won’t spoil it be worrying that I didn’t get enough TV prep done. It just takes as long as it takes. What I have done is fine – and certainly enough to get the Birthday launch ball rolling! I still want to do a little bit to my SHAC-Shack eagles before end of play today, and then I can get a…
