Hello hello! Grace here.
I hope you’re all having a good week thus far. It’s almost Thanksgiving in America, so everyone seems a little tense as they decide whether or not to make the trip home to family. We’ve made the difficult decision to go with no. Schools are shutting down and restrictions are being put in place both here in NY and in Ohio, so my lovely Mark called it. We will stay put for the week. Bummer. But also, needs must.
I am going to lift our spirits this weekend by decorating the apartment for Christmas. Time to put the tree up… and a new beautiful wreath I bought from a good friend. I’ll try to get it done so that I can show you soon!
Some GOOD NEWS for our American friends and customers! Our US Clarity Amazon store has just been replenished with some stock. Not our entire range (you can still order from us directly) but some absolutely FANTASTIC products are just a click away on Amazon 🙂 If you have Amazon Prime, that means free shipping! Our Clarity international shipping costs aren’t bad if you do order directly from us, it’s just another option. We’re about to have the big GRAY FRIDAY sale next week too, so obviously that’s worth checking out and waiting for. And will be direct from us. Stay tuned 🙂
It’s been another great week in the Groovi SHAC, with download #31 (pictured above).
Have a gander at this week’s lovely work!
If you’ve never tried the Groovi SHAC challenges before, there’s never been a better time! Second lockdown here we come. You can find ALL of the projects (designed by the wonderful Hazel Edwards) along with instructions and ingredients lists HERE.
They’re just a starting point. Some inspiration. A jumping off point! You don’t need the plates, you can design your own version of the download. Just make sure when you post it on Groovi Worldwide, you mention the download number in the caption, so I know what it is! or email it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Here is the FRESH Groovi SHAC challenge of the week, # 32
Another good reason to join in now… Since we’re having the Gray Friday sale next week, you have two weeks to complete this project! We will show your work and launch the next Groovi download on Friday Dec 4th, as we’ll be a tad busy with other blogs next week. Deal? Deal.
It’s been another cosy & calm week in the shac shack, as you continue to work on your houses and snowy village scenes. They’re my favourite, I think. It’s hard not to go back and forth, but honestly… the photos of the snowy villages and houses are astounding. Not much new information to share in terms of what you need this week, please refer back to last week’s blog.
It is important to mention that the greys used for shadows and shading of the houses are from this collection of 12 Polychromos.
Other important products to highlight for you this week are:
– Pergamano Brads
– Glue Runner
– Adhesive Sheets
– Decoupage paste glue (for the canvas board technique)
– Acrylic stands
– Canvas boards
– Buff paper
If you want to see everyone’s epic work in the SHAC, you can find them all here.
Right, that’s enough waffle from me. I’ll see you Sunday for our weekly share of STUNNING artwork. I’ve already picked and saved a bunch. Just you wait!
Lotsa love, Grace xo
