You guessed it!

Gooooood morning botanist friends. Stuart here.

It seems as though quite a few of you are rather knowledgable about plants. The beautiful shrub I posted a picture of was indeed a Mexican Orange Blossom. So well done to all of you who guessed correctly.

Now, I’m not an expert, and I only learned what the plant was a few weeks ago after it came into flower and I looked it up. But I do know that there are at least two varieties of Mexican Orange Blossom, because two varieties are in my garden. One has nice long thin pointy leaves in a darker tone of green, the other which is pictured below has bigger, rounder, brighter shinier leaves. This one is my least favourite. Might dig it up and move it…

This photo was taken this morning, with the sun rising in the east there!

If anyone knows more about Orange Blossom varieties, drop me a comment below, I do love to learn about plants!

Anyway, that’s a side note. Must not be distracted. After all, this is a Claritystamp blog, not a what’s in Stuart’s garden blog! And today, being Tuesday, means I need to say something about our YouTube Tuesday video.

And quite frankly, that’s easy. Our YouTube channel is pretty awesome. And, I know I work for Clarity and you expect me to say that, but it is. There are hundreds of videos, thousands of hours of content and about 8 years of expertise, it’s just such a fantastic resource for any crafter. We at Clarity pride ourselves on teaching people how to get the most out of the stuff we sell them. We don’t want to make a sale then leave you to it, we want to help you along the way and give you the hints and tips and tricks you need to create great art. Our YouTube videos are easy to listen to, a little bit funny and designed to put you at ease as you try to pick up some essential skills. So, why not check out the channel here:

Just in case you needed an extra incentive, every week we choose one video to put a spotlight on (often a brand new video, but because of Lockdown we haven’t been able to film new ones) a video and put a nice 20% off on the products used!

This week, our spotlight video is this one called Stamping How To – Fly Away Over The Mountains:

It features that Clarity classic Fly Away Boy stamp and some really clever techniques with torn paper to achieve a misty mountaintop design. Beautiful.

So, why not give it a little look, and let us know what you think. If you want to grab any of those ingredients used, simply click this link:

By for now.

Clarity Matters. Stuart!

    That’s one of my favorite images. It’s the very essence of hope. The Clarity videos are wonderful. They aren’t just how to do a singular project, but teaching skills that can be used again and again.

    Great video. Be careful, Stuart – Barbara may turn your garden into stamps and then it will be both! I like hearing about your garden and gardening is a great way to resist the virus. Other people must like it too, as you got lots of responses. You have forgotten that Barbara is on YouTube every day, so Clarity are recording brand new videos for us even in desperate times. It’s just we get two on Tuesdays as an extra treat.
