Happy Joyous & Free

Happy Joyous & Free

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Sunday’s blog a step by step and typical Gray, right? So before we trundle off to Ditton, to set up for the retreat week ahead, I thought I’d do a few warm up exercises, limber up as it were! It’s about time I got my all time ever favourite stamp out of the cupboard. Poor lad; he’s been feeling neglected…. And whilst we’re getting out the faves, how about the hills and moons masks?…

A Gaggle of Geese and the Dentist!

A Gaggle of Geese and the Dentist!

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. I’m going to write really fast now,  because the anesthetic is wearing off. I’m one of those foolish people who avoids the dentist for a decade and then wonders why they’re starting to get wobbly! (my teeth, not the dentist). He’s a lovely bloke, but I dread going to see him. Anyway, let’s change the subject… I have a couple of cool things to show you,  before I crawl under the duvet and stay…

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. aka Groovi Douglas.

Hi there. It’s Sunday, the sun’s shining, I’ve just spent the morning writing a German blog, and if you don’t mind, I shall just translate the project for you, because it turned out quite nicely, even if I say so myself! Used another one of these Clarity Friends. I think the blog is all about giving you ideas  and showing you various possibilities… So many people have invested in these Borders at the special price, so the least I can…

Monday. Take me back to New Mexico!

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. What a luxury it is to be able to write this blog on a proper Mac! Having cobbled together blogs every day for weeks  from 7,000 miles away on an Ipad, and 7 or 8 hours behind you, it is great to be back in real time, in sync so to speak! So back to the grindstone, eh. Monday’s blog is Flowers and Trees, so here’s a very simple card,  made with our ultra…

Hello there! Thanks for stopping by here on Advent Day No. 8. I am hoping that you don’t mind my not doing Christmas for 24 straight blogs;   I don’t think I could take it!

Build a fence, then climb over it.

Hello again!Thank you for popping in. YouTube Tuesday recommences next week,  the first Tuesday in December. But today,  I thought I’d roll back the hours with a piece of artwork  which I did years ago on the telly.  It’s pretty basic. The ideas are good, but oh boy! Have I moved forward! Just take a look at this! A5 Claritycard used.  Make a border around the edge using low-tack masking tape. Wrap a thin elastic band around your Speedball brayer, …

An old new trick…written on the A1 in a jam.

An old new trick…written on the A1 in a jam.

It’s round midnight, there has been yet another big accident up the road, so my trip to the TV studios is not going very well. 2 hours later, and we haven’t moved an inch. I overheard a truck driver outside just tell his mate we’re here till at least 4am. And all I can say is God help the poor souls at the front of this chaos. If I am a bit tired on telly tomorrow, I’m a bit tired…
