Elf & Happiness

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. Bit of a scramble here, ticking boxes, making sure we’ve remembered everything for our Big Birthday Bash up at Create & Craft , which starts this evening at 6pm. Paul and I are on our way at 10, so fingers crossed the traffic is kind. (Friday? M25?? What am I thinking?!?) We’ve given ourselves 8 hours to do a 2 and a half hour run – that should do! And guess who’s heading up…

Shining a light on the Scenescape Masks ..

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Take 2. Let’s look again at the landscape we built out of one of the Scenescape Masks recently. This was yesterday’s blog, using the new Dandelion stamps… This time let’s use darling Ani’s flyaway boy – my absolute favourite stamp ever… Slightly different mask layout, different central image, different new Companion Paper, but also from the Waimea Falls Companion Paper book, and a wonderful script from the new Reflection stamps… Here is another step…

There are so many super new designs and…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Hope you’re enjoying your Bank Holiday Weekend? Early bird catches the worm here at Clarity! Paul is filling TV orders, Dave is making Embedders, and I am already looking ahead to next week -THE CLARITY TV WEEKEND OF THE YEAR – our 29th Clarity Birthday. I like Sundays. Early. Fresh. Not many cars. Just the twitter of the birds. The trees in the garden are standing stock still; not even a leaf is moving….

Looking for a companion?

Hi there! Thanks for popping in! Blogging on my phone in the Green Room up at Create & Craft. I certainly like a challenge! Writing on a phone I mean!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Paul is up at the new Create & Craft studios, getting set for a rather special Groovi/Pergamano launch.

Another Bijou Show…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s been a good day today. Dad has once again turned the corner, and was more like his lovely old self when I went to the hospital today. I had gone there with a very heavy heart after the last couple of days. But this morning he was back in the room, so to speak. True grit. Double portion of lunch AND pudding. Yep. his appetite was certainly back too! I feel much happier…

Priority shift

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Apologies for cancelling the SHAC this morning; Dad is poorly again, so my attention and focus is with family right now. He’s a fighter, true grit, and I’m sure he’ll come through this, but there is so much going on at work too, that I had to claw back a few hours, and the SHAC does take up 2 mornings a week. After the retreats, we can start again. That’ll give me a break,…
