A Brilliant Parchment Poppet : Tina Cox

Hi there! Thanks for poppeting in. Oh boy! You liked Tina’s Mandalas then! Good grief! Paul is back on at 12 and 4 today. We’ve added more stock, both for the Groovi plates AND the stamps! Hope it lasts. In the meantime, continuing on with our Pergamano celebrations, I was chatting away to lovely Tina yesterday evening, in between sellout shows!

Oooh La La! Linda!

Oooh La La! Linda!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. The Pergamano Festivities wouldn’t be complete without a huge round of applause – nay, a standing ovation – for Linda Williams, that wonderful Welsh lady who just blows us away with her creativity and talent every single time. She has taught me so much! She shares her knowledge so willingly, so freely. I wonder how many thousands of parchers she has held by the hand and guided them through the art. She and I…

It’s a Groovi Giveaway

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Day 1 of the Pergamano Party here. In case you’re wondering what it’s all about, Grace has written a perfect intro blog over on our Clarity Matters Blog, explaining what we’re up to and why.

And since we bought Pergamano two or three years ago, even diehard traditional parchers have joined us and embraced our Groovi system. Our Groovi plates just…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. And thank you so much for tuning in to HOCHANDA today, and flying the Clarity flag ! Sooo busy! I guess the Half -Price offer was too good to pass up? I know I needed a new set of the first five, because I’ve been using the same set since their inception, and they were looking a little bit “well loved”. Still worked fine, but were looking their age! Aren’t we all!! ANyway, once…

Honesty.

Honesty.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Been poodling around the house today, cooking, cleaning, ironing and just generally catching up with domestic chores. This kind of productive yet not particularly mentally taxing activity leaves the mind free to wander and ponder, don’t you find? And that is precisely what mine did. Without even leaving the kitchen, I managed in a very short space of time to get all riled and caught up in the corruption and devious, manipulative behaviour of…

Still got the hair up in a French Twist. Did I ever see this little ABC Nursery Rhyme adventure turning into…
