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,…

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…

Enjoy Peaceful Moments…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s a funny old day today. The TV Skype Show is at 6pm so I shall be heading over to Clarity Towers after lunch and setting up the Clarity Studio. All ready and packed – but it’s only 10am, and I keep thinking I should be DOING something! I’ve cleaned the kitchen, wiped down all the counters, sent various emails, made several phone calls, read up on How to lower your cholesterol and another…

Back in the Saddle..

Back in the Saddle..

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Grace left for New York this morning, and the house is very quiet. She’s such a bundle of good energy and joy! Despite extending her stay, just like her brother who had to get back to SF to work, she wasn’t able to see her Grandad either, because he is still in hospital. It’s been almost a month now. Who could have foreseen this? But he’s in the right place and getting stronger by…

Oh Joy!

Oh Joy!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. How about taking a closer look at one of the projects from Sunday’s TV show, using the Nursery Rhyme ABC Stamps? It’s a real simple one, but a great technique if you haveinvested in the Victorian letters or the 12 Days of Christmas numbers. Pick a Designer Paper to stamp on. Here we are using Amazonia. Let’s not waste it either…cut out the middle with a nested square Fresh Cut die. Then we can…

What’s the Story, Jackanory?

What’s the Story, Jackanory?

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Jackanory. Who remembers Jackanory? I LOVED it!! I would wait patiently, legs crossed, in front of the TV every afternoon after school, and wait for the story. Just for 15 minutes every day, wasn’t it. I’d rush home from school, just to catch the next chapter! You couldn’t miss it, because you couldn’t catch up or watch later. It was then or never. How times have changed. Back then, an adult – mostly a…
