Thinking about a Maclaren…

Thinking about a Maclaren…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. On the way to the Chinese Shen Yun performance the other week, we drove past Maclaren Headquarters, Woking. “Oooh! Look! There’s the Maclaren Headquarters!” “Forget the cars! Look at the Silver Birches!!” What a wonderful avenue of silver birches! And in the twilight hour, they just looked magnificent. Then yesterday, Dave and I were out walking, and came across a whole forest of them again. Absolutely glorious right now. The lilac haze atop the…

A little background noise…

A little background noise…

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…

Here we come, ready or not!

Here we come, ready or not!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Early doors here. Dave’s gone to sort out the plumbing noise in the new building. Every time somebody flushes a loo, it sounds like we’re under attack from above!! And we’re planning on recording YouTubes there! Paul and I are prepping telly projects for tomorrow. These are the first TV shows of the year, so we want to dyb-dyb-dyb-dob-dob-dob! Either way, we’ve done the best we can do, we’ve put in the action; we’re…

And now for something completely different….

And now for something completely different….

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Today has been a good day. I looked at the calendar, realised that this time next week it’s TV WEEKEND again, and decided to get ahead of the game. With all the new building plans on the horizon, I’ll certainly feel better in myself if I’ve got a few demos prepped! Mind you, this is no hardship at all at all with these new designs! We are certainly launching 2020 with a wonderful collection…

My alarm bells are ringing…

My alarm bells are ringing…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Had a little moment today. Went to the new building with Paul to make a plan, opened a secret corridor – and set the main alarm off ! The good news is that the system really works well; the bad news is we didn’t know the password to switch it off! And IT IS LOUD!!! So while Paul tried every possible number combination and waved the little fob around in front of the sensor…

A little Treet….

A little Treet….

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Waining waining waining. Whilst I miss our dogs, Dutchie and Duke every day, on days like today, I cannot help but remember the mud and puddles they used to traipse through the kitchen when it was pissisting outside! We have a cellar here, which is slowly filling up, too. It’s called a Wet cellar for a reason I guess! At least you know you’ve got a 6ft tall warning before it gets to the…

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…
