NEVER GIVE UP.

NEVER GIVE UP.

Hi there. Greetings from the Clarity SHAC-Shack! I hope you are safe and well? Day 4 in the house, and all is well. It occurred to me this morning that I am experiencing a shift in my attitude. I can only speak for myself, but today for example, Dave had to run the gauntlet and go shopping for Mum, Dad, and ourselves. Check out the message on his hat… When he finally got home, we had a pretty weird half…

I’m addicted!!!

Hi there, Greetings from the Clarity SHAC-Shack! Thanks for popping in. I hope you are safe and well. This Corona Virus is certainly a game changer. Boy oh boy. Words fail me – and that doesn’t happen often! I’ve stopped obsessing about watching the news – it really serves no purpose. I just get anxious, and despondent. Much better to focus on what I can do to help. Which is keep Clarity going, make sure the team are safe and…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Pretty manic at work today. Rolling with the punches, I think it’s called! As I said yesterday, it’s a challenge! But we have a plan, and we’re trying to get everything set up soonest. In the meantime, let’s just step away from the news, the ever mounting reality that is enveloping us, and switch off, shall we? Call me fickle if you will, but other than avoiding people and washing our hands till the…

Keep Calm and Carry on Crafting!

Hi there. Hope you’re okay. Spoke to a friend on the phone who is self-isolating this morning. No no no. He’s not self-isolating this morning! I spoke to him this morning! The English language is a minefield, innit! He’s a journalist, so he’s has been in contact with people who have been in contact with – and so on. He said we – you and I – are lucky that we have our crafting, that we have our art. He…

A Scrapart Print Step-by-Step

Hi there, Thanks for popping in! So glad you like those Chinese Lanterns we showcased today! Here’s a photo step by step of the afternoon canvas! When our Sam was on the telly the other week, I snaffled a couple of the painty copy paper prints she pulled on the day. What great backdrops they make! Can you see her Mixed Impressions Stamps in the prints? Here goes: Stamp with black Archival ink. Cover with the stencil and pad Versamark…

Trip down Memory Lane…

Trip down Memory Lane…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. All systems go here, so if I want to calm it Kermit, it’s always best to hide away and get arty for an hour. When I lose myself in being arty-crafty, that washing machine head of mine stops spinning, the voices shut up telling me what to think, and I actually seem leave the vortex that is my life at the moment, and just focus happily on whatever it is I am making. So…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Had a smashing day today, in the company of a handsome young man. Bit haughty for me, but nice enough fella. I suppose his aloofness is a kind of defence mechanism. Name’s Captain Wentworth. Anne blew him out and now he’s back on the scene…. They’ve actually both been keeping me company all day, while I’ve been crafting and getting ahead of the TV shows next weekend. Saturday 15th : 11am 2pm 4pm I…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. All set to go-a-painting with the girls! We’re on emulsion, Dave’s on glossy blue. So many of you have invested in our Mixed Impression texture stamps which sold out double fast on telly before Christmas! I think we need a few demos to show you how to use them now!! Here’s a very simple technique, using the Fabric Texture stamps as a background for some very lovely old Claritystamps…. This is the one we…

Hi there Thanks for popping in! Great day, although Je suis trés fatiguée! TRAY FATTY GAY! That’s it, isn’t it. The minute you stop and relax, the body flops, like one of those little dolly things when you shoved your thumb up the base! Same thing happened to Dave! Look! Shoved my thumb up his base, and down he went – like a sack of spuds! Enough larking about, Gray! Be serious! Do that step by step of the card…
