Hello hello! Grace here.
It feels strange not talking to you in Blogland until Friday! But you know where I am 🙂
On the trusty chat system! If you didn’t know, we have an online chat set up on both Claritystamp.com and Pergamano.com, which I (wo)man 5 days a week.
8am – 5pm EST (1pm – 10pm UK time).
I’m there to answer product questions, help you with technical issues with your account, assist with your shopping and ordering, to give you a status update on an order OR just to say hello. It’s nice to just say hello sometimes. If you can come on the chat system to ask me a question, that saves you the time of putting together an email! It saves you having to wait for the answer. And it saves Jeannine time, so she can better assist the despatch department in getting those orders out to you! I’m here to help 🙂
You’ll find me in the bottom left hand corner of both websites, where it says “Chat with us“.
‘Us’ being me 😉
Now, keeping to our usual schedule, it’s Friday. So that has meant a sharing of your Groovi SHAC artwork. But moving forward, it’s ALSO going to include SHAC SHAC updates, information and occasionally some doodles.
…Can we even call them doodles anymore? More like WORKS OF ART.
But yes, please come to my Friday blog for all things SHAC. That’s the Groovi SHAC and the SHAC SHAC. Particularly as we all (yes, NY has new restrictions now too) enter our second lockdown, it’s good to have it all in one place. SO… The SHACK it is. Quick! Get in.
Here are your beautiful Groovi SHAC cards of the week! Inspired by Download # 30
This seemed harder than most downloads… to me at least! Or from a distance. Am I wrong? Just a little trickier and more challenging from the lovely Hazel Edwards. But haven’t you done well? Certainly stepped right up to the challenge. I think they are just lovely. And again, all very unique and beautifully made.
I’m increasingly more inspired to give picot cutting a try. Perhaps I should start a series for those of us who have not yet attempted it. It would likely end up being a ‘How NOT to do it’, but fun nonetheless. You inspire me 🙂
Here is Groovi SHAC Download #31, in all it’s glory! Leaves and butterflies. And leafy butterflies. I know we likes that! 😀
Now for our SHAC SHACK hang of the week. I have to say, whilst beginning to gather my fave cards this week for our Sunday Share… I was BLOWN AWAY by all of the wonderful little village scenes you’ve drawn. There’s too many too share. They might be my favourite so far! But then, what about Japan? Or the Mandalas? And what about Africa? And our time under the sea? And then the colouring! The toucans?! Or the blue tits? OOOH what about the hot air balloons doodles? Hmmmmm.
Honestly… the list goes on and on and on and on. The amount of things you’ve mastered since this all started in the Spring is quite mind boggling. I hope YOU are as impressed with yourself as we are.
The project that your currently working on is another STUNNER. So here is some info for it…
- It is 4×4 inches in size
- It can be done on copy paper, buff paper or designer paper.
- Either wrap it around our 4×4 inch canvas board or, if you start the design 1/4 inch in all-round (leaving a bit of a border – total size still must be 4×4), you can slide it into a Pergamano Coaster.
- Barb has discussed this particular design as being good for a gift. *AHEM Christmas AHEM*
