Clear the head, not the ironing pile!

Clear the head, not the ironing pile!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. My list of things-to-do got so long, so overwhelming, that I decided to go to Pottery all morning, then come home, have a nap and make a little step by step card project for this ere blog! Roast lunch? Nah. Plate of nachos. Nothing like hitting the Sod it Button on a Sunday!! In fact, I may even go down in the garage and throw a few bowls this evening – just to be…

Lost your Mojo ? Another way back…

Lost your Mojo ? Another way back…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s Tuesday and it’s Day 3 in this  #LOSTYOURMOJO Blog series. Why am I sitting with this subject for days at a time? Because your hobby is your sane lane! You get with your hands, you get out of your head – it’s that simple. We crafters are so very lucky to have found something ANYTHING we want to learn about and make! It is the thing that keeps us company, keeps us occupied,…

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…

Lost your Mojo? Don’t Overthink it.

Lost your Mojo? Don’t Overthink it.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Several friends have told me recently they’ve lost their arty mojo. They’ve lost their way. Don’t know where to start. Can’t get going. So I thought perhaps we could talk about it? I was having a similar thing this afternoon. Trying to prepare for a TV show next Sunday, but what I was doing just wasn‘t working. Third run at the same thing – still no good. Then I heard myself say to me…

An early Happy New Year Project

An early Happy New Year Project

Hi there Thanks for popping in. I hope your Christmas has been a good one, a peaceful one and a safe one? Did the family festivities happen? Are the needles falling off the tree yet? Is it over yet? Can we put the chairs and cushions back in their place?  I don’t think I can eat any more! I left everyone in the house and came up to my little Shac above the garage for a couple of hours, to…

A City Skyline using masks…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Part two of our city tour, and I thought we’d have a look at creating a really atmospheric skyline using the Cityscape masks that we also make. It’s an interesting demo, and very easy to do. In fact at the bottom of this blog, I’ll load all the various landscape and cityscape masks, which you could apply the same technique to. A very typical Clarity Style…   RRP £29.97 – Special Price £14.98 (plus…

Oh what brilliant stencils!!

Oh what brilliant stencils!!

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. A set of stencils caught my eye at work this morning. They are frameless. Brilliant for pottery AND Mixed Media! So I decided to have a play with them when I got home this evening. Upstairs for a change, in the arty painty inky part of my little Art studio!! You know. Get away from the news, the TV. Do something creative. MAKE something. ESCAPE. They are those new stencils we recently launched in…
