Unplugged.

Unplugged.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Trying to get some order in the day here! Time to eat some laundry, empty the walk, go for a car and do some toast – but not before I write my shower and have a blog! All at 6s and 7s today. Or is it 6s and 2s? Got too many windows open like a computer, and now they’ve all frozen. Best thing is to STOP, pull the plug out and reboot. After…

Something new…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Getting revved up for a little one hour show tomorrow at 4pm on Hochanda. Paul is showcasing some exceptionally beautiful and useful Groovi lace plates at 11am and 2pm. And I will be waiting patiently in the wings, to show off a little set of floral framers which I drew to compliment last year‘s Floral ABC. They may be modest, entwined and quite simple, but they do pack a punch – even if I…

Hi there Thanks for popping in!12-4-8. These are the hours we are on Hochanda today. Contrary to the plan, I am bouncing from one meeting to the next here! So forgive the brief blog.

Grace and Clarity…

Grace and Clarity…

Hi there!Thanks for popping in. Had a super meeting with a few members of the marketing team this morning. Teamwork certainly makes the dream work here. One thing became apparent very quickly during the meeting: we are all approaching Clarity sales from the same place – kind and caring. Whilst this may be neither the business norm nor the most lucrative way, we all agreed that it is the only acceptable way for us. Hey! When did we ever toe…

Aloha 2020 !

Aloha 2020 !

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. In fact, thank you for popping in most days, as you do. I appreciate you, and even though you may not comment, I know you are there – and that’s a good thing. Remember when I was under attack back in June for ostensibly plagiarising artwork? That was a very low point for me, and without wanting to relive the whole headstorm, what I remember was the overwhelming show of support from friends and…

Christmas Day

Christmas Day

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Happy Christmas! Before the family congregates round the big table for breakfast, and in between peeling spuds and prepping pigs in blankets for Christmas lunch later, I thought I would just take myself off for 5 minutes, to wish you all the very, very best. Christmas is a funny old time of year. Some are surrounded by family and friends, some are not. Some are partying and celebrating, some are not. Some are poodling…

NEW ADDRESS FOR SANTA…

NEW ADDRESS FOR SANTA…

Ho Ho Ho! Thanks for popping in. Let me tell you a story… Once upon a time there was a crafter called Barb, who ran a small stamp company called Claritystamp. For a long time she worked out of her home, which was very small, and things were quite tight! She hadn’t seen the dining room table for years – it was covered in ink pads and paper and stamps. The car never saw the inside of the garage –…
