Aha! An Idea!

Aha! An Idea!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Wednesday’s blog from the heart, right? So let me tell you what’s going on at this end…I’ve been drawing! During the retreats, we were using 3-way overlay stamps, and somebody suggested we ought to have some Christmas 3-way overlays, because you can create such cool art so quickly! And Christmas is the one occasion where you really do make more than one card! So as with most things, I have to park them until…

Twas Grace!

Twas Grace!

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. All excited and chuffed here. Today’s Youtube featuring Twas the Night Groovi Art by our splendid Groovi Design team, has been narrated by our daughter Grace. Just listen to this – Many of you know that Grace has built a successful voiceover career over the past few years in New York, so she was the obvious choice for reading this lovely Christmas adaptation of the Christmas verses by Clement Clarke Moore! But did you…

E for Easy Groovi

E for Easy Groovi

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Wanted to share a very simple Groovi piece I made recently, using one of those fab new funky framers that Linda Williams has come up with, combined with one of my floral Groovi ABC plates – the E for Edelweiss. I opted for one of the tangles frames… Very simple to complete. No cutting involved at all; just some basic whitework and colouring in. Coloured in from behind with Pergaliner pencils, and blended with…

VIOLA

VIOLA

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Spent the day with my parents – they are so interesting to be around! My Dad has such a dry sense of humour, and knows all about so much; and my Mum is as sharp as a needle – I’m pretty sure she’s phsychic! They have taught me so much in my life, and still I learn from watching them work their way through their days. I love listening to them reminisce or just…

Keep it – Sling it.

Keep it – Sling it.

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Must tell you about today. It’s been interesting, very interesting. I had a real keep it-sling it morning.  You know the one. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, look out!!! We’ve had way too much work on to think about the home for months now, and slowly the piles of STUFF have been doing what they do best: piling up. Each room has slowly been getting more and more cluttered with STUFF. And…

Meet Double-Dave!!

Meet Double-Dave!!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Been going like the clappers here on my own today. Catching up with this month’s New Design Club and working on something new… But Friday’s blog a private peek, right? Remember CharlieFarlie the rattlesnake, who was camping outside our back door in New Mexico this summer? Well, as if he wasn’t enough to give you the heebie jeebies, what about his uncle Double-Dave, who turned up in New Jersey this week ?!?! Now I…

Who did this work?

Who did this work?

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. Been sat staring at the partition wall for the last half hour. You know, that glassy eyed stare, when Old man Time is telling you to call it a day… But then I refocussed, and looked at what was actually in front of me… So I took the time to kiss the photo, as you do, then checked to see who had made the crossword (clever Lynne Lee), and finally, read the wonderful poem….

Reality check.

Reality check.

Hi there!Thanks for popping in. Wednesday’s blog is from the heart, right? So here goes…. I was dashing past the large windows of Waitrose in Crowborough this evening, and I just happened to see a woman trying to feed a very disabled young man in the restaurant. He was agitated and she was struggling. Boom. In that split moment, my world was right-sized again. All the inane, self-serving politicking about Brexit deal or no deal faded away, all the day’s…

Over the Rooftops…

Over the Rooftops…

Hi there!Thanks for popping in. It’s been a day of unpacking here at the house – and MEGA picking n packing at Clarity Towers!! Those nimble hands are working like bees’ wings to pick n pack your orders! It’s a great vibe though. Everybody’s glad to be busy! One of my favourite demos from the weekend was the simple new Waimea Falls paper landscape, using those fantastic landscape masks of ours, so if you don’t mind, I shall just do…
