Hello! Happy Friday 🙂 Grace here.
Another week down. We’re doing this thing aren’t we? We’re staying indoors, keeping safe and trying our best to maintain sanity throughout. And I think we’re doing a blimmin’ good job of it! Particularly our (not so) little craft community. The amount of doodles I wake up to every day is magical! (remember, I’m 5 hours behind most of you in England).
Some cool personal news… We got a car. It was about time, we had been discussing it, but the pandemic forced our hand. My Mark still has to go to work as his job is considered ‘essential’, and the subway was quickly not a safe option and after renting a shared car for a month (and having to disinfect it regularly) we decided it was time to rip the plaster/band-aid off.
So now we have a car. I’ve lived in New York City for 8.5 years without a car, and managed just fine. But times have changed. And we are very happy to have one now! Big smiles all around.
For the first time in 4 weeks, I ventured outside…*gasp* to let my fella pick me up and take me for a drive in his new wheels. And we decided to go into Manhattan to see how quiet it was, and how she was doing. It was really lovely to just SEE things. Don’t worry, we didn’t get out of the car. But we drove all through the city, to look at Times Square, Columbus Circle, Central Park etc etc. All from the safety of the vehicle!
It’s the little things now, isn’t it? I can’t remember the last time I felt that grateful to just go for a drive, or to simply see the things I’m used to seeing every day. Pure gratitude for that which we took for granted before.

Now, whilst doodling has taken off and we’ve been joined by literally HUNDREDS UPON HUNDREDS of new lovely Clarity members and doodlers… We haven’t forgotten about how to get Groovi, and how therapeutic THAT is and today our first ‘Groovi Download’ has launched.
It’s the Groovi SHAC, with download number #001!
If you’re already a pre-confessed Groovi addict and member of our family, this is for you. If you’re loving doodles, but fancy leveling up, this is also for you.
You can download your first free Groovi downloadable project here.
And… all of the products used in project #001 (most of you will already own) are on a special sale on our Clarity website! It’s even more inspiration and more fun to get involved in, should you so choose 🙂
I’ll be back tomorrow, on Saturday, to share my favorite cards of the week!
Stay safe, and be well. We just have to keep doing what we’ve been doing.
Lotsa Love, Grace xoxo
