Mop up Hearts

Mop up Hearts

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Saturday’s blog a new technique, right? New to who? Towittawoo? Quite by chance I came up with a couple of very cool bleeding heart tricks, which are really excellent as backgrounds, so I want to share with you. It’s using our Clarity Heart Backdrop Stamp, the large one. First combo-trick. Let’s use Artistry Ink pads for this one. We carry a good selection of the colours; I think they work brilliantly dry AND wet….

With Love & Best Wishes

With Love & Best Wishes

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Spinning plates here. So many things in the pipeline, so many ideas moving through and taking shape – so many things to consider, remember, factor in. There is a vast difference between design and manufacture, and as wide a gulf again between manufacture and marketing. How our little Clarity Crew manages to pull this off week on week, month on month, year on year, is quite astounding. It ain’t easy, I know that for…

A while ago, we designed an excellent and oh so useful…

Hi there Thanks for popping in! Typing extra fast, because there’s a Craftlaong-a-Barbie at 7pm on Facebook Live – and I’m up to my derriere in ink and lino here ! ! !

Like getting out of a Ford Fiesta and slipping into a Porsche…

I can. And I will.

I can. And I will.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Woke up this morning and was overcome with the overwhelming desire to do something I have only ever done once many years ago in France – and that time it was rather rushed and a bit rough. Good grief! I hear you gasp. On a Saturday morning?!? And she wants to share about it on the blog?! My oh my… she definitely needs a holiday…. You know how it is. When the mood is…

New York New York

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Thought we’d take a whistlestop trip to New York. Here are a few snapshots from our last visit to see Grace in 2019. Check out the mural… Here’s a skyline of Manhattan from the water, …and here’s the lady herself. Coming into port, and the Freedom Tower literally towers above you. It’s a powerful reminder of what man is totally capable of. Destroying and rebuilding alike. New York . A fascinating place. Packed with…

A whole Bunch of Daisies!

A whole Bunch of Daisies!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Spent the day with my parents today. Took Mum to Macknades – a very posh Greengrocers / Delicatessen / Fine Food store in Faversham. Fabulous store. Even if you go there adamant you aren’t going to spend much – you do. Lovely drive through the Kentish countryside to get there. I do love the magnolias in full bloom right now! Superb, aren’t they? Blimming traffic though! Everyone and their brother was on the A2…
