A Super Gemstone Lesson!

A Super Gemstone Lesson!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. I hope you are safe and well? We are rolling with the punches here at Clarity; no sooner have we made a plan than the goal posts get moved again. But we are absolutely in agreement with Downing Street that reducing social contact to an absolute mimimum is the only way forward. We’re all in this together, right? As promised, here’s a wonderful, crystal clear step by step tutorial by Tina . What a…

Tina is a real Gem!

Tina is a real Gem!

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…

Switching off.

Switching off.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. I hope you are ok, safe and healthy. Once again, it has been quite an intense morning at Clarity Towers. There’s so much to consider, so much to think about. Still lots of laughter and hilarity with Clarity. It’s an excellent coping mechanism, laughter. And we’ve got quite a few team players who could double up as stand up comedians ! At one point Debby and I were larking about in the stamp room,…

Friday 13th eh?

Friday 13th eh?

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Friday 13th. Mmm. Unlucky for some? For better or for worse – I was born on Friday 13th! So she’s 61 years young today. How did that happen?!?! One minute she’s 14 years old, walking up and down Darland Avenue because she’s besotted with Alan Garrett who lives at No. 150, and the next she’s married to lovely Dave, lives in East Sussex and runs a craft company! Funny old life, innit. Alan Garrett?…

It’s the little things…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. What a week of turmoil, eh. I do hope you are warm, dry and safe. We’ve been ploughing through the new factory like locusts, getting everything in place, ready to start business over in the new place Monday. It is really coming together now, and tomorrow I shall take a few pics to show you the progress. It is so exciting, all being in the same building, all moving together as a team and…

Stop the Clock…

Stop the Clock…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Left Glasgow at 7.30 am, and just flicked the kettle on in our lovely warm kitchen at bang on 5pm. Made good time, and even swang by the TV studios to pick the car up, which we left there a week ago! Still a long way though. Don’t ping back like I used to. Thankfully we’ve got a week off before the NEC… So what did I do for 4 days at the SEC?…

Blog, Bath, Book, Bed.

Hi there. thanks for popping in. Day 3 in Glasgow done – and don‘t my feet know it! Until you‘ve worked a 4-day exhibition and demoed like we do, you cannot know how hard they are . Gruelling. Thank heaven for help! Hilda Smith has very kindly been lending a hand, and has been such a blessing ! I go like the clappers pretty much from the minute the doors open each morning. And I keep prattling and rolling from…

There‘s a first time for everything ….

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. Greetings from Glasgow Craft Exhibition ! Day 2 done and dusted. Half way through… The bad news is today was quieter than yesterday. The good news is that today was quieter than yesterday . Bad because the footfall was down, and sales reflected that. Good because I was able to have proper conversations with visitors to the stand, able to spend more quality time with our Clarity friends. There are two sides to every…

What a Welcome!

What a Welcome!

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. What a wonderful welcome we were given here on DAY 1 at the SEC in Glasgow! It has been 8 years since I was last here. SO many old friends came to say hi! SO many familiar faces gathered around the Clarity stand! I was headdown and demming from the minute the doors opened – in between hugs and cuddles and kisses! So much for no contact ! Impossible with crafters – especially the…
