Hello hello! Grace here.
I hope you’re all having a good week? And coping alright in the lead up to Christmas?
Me? I’ve been watching The Crown obsessively and wrapping presents in the evenings. Thoroughly enjoying the process of thinking about each gift recipient as I buy and wrap. And have definitely spent too many of my pennies. But hey ho! It’s given me some direction in recent weeks! And we all love a bit of direction.
I have to say, I’ve been having a right laugh at the Elf Hunt. Because I’m on the chat system, I can see that there are about 100 of you on the website at any given moment, searching for little Elfie & Evie. And some of you have even tried to trick me into giving you clues! NAUGHTY NAUGHTY! I happened to be on FaceTime with my Mum the other day and laughed out loud when a lady asked me on the chat system ‘Where is the elf today?‘.
I replied ‘I’m not allowed to tell you, sorry‘.
And she responded ‘Worth a try LOL!‘.
We rolled about laughing, Mum and I. And then I move over to the Facebook groups to work through notifications there and see your mixtured frustration and glee. I know I shouldn’t laugh, but it is funny.
I have noticed that people often step away for a bit, or even for a day and then it clicks… so if you don’t find one, just let it simmer for a bit. It’s supposed to be fun 😉
So, as many of you know… we parked Groovi SHAC last week for the Gray Friday Sale! What a huge success that was.
And so we’re BACK today.
Here is the newest Groovi SHAC downloadable challenge project for you to have a go at!
Our fantastic Hazel Edwards (who designs these gorgeous projects) is on a shoe theme it seems! I don’t know about you, but I LOVE a pair of shoes. Even if there’s nowhere to wear them this year… they WILL get worn again.
Now, have a look at these glorious cards from Project 32! You don’t have to use the same plates, even if you have them… it’s just for inspiration. And just look how inspiring these are!
Lovely lovely lovely! Such stunning handmade cards. Will these Groovi SHAC cards be sent for Christmas? Or are you holding on to them?
At first I thought the Christmas boot was the central theme of this one, but it could also be the leafy frame… or simply just Christmas. I find it fascinating what some of you see and find, versus others. We all have our own style eh?
I’m sure many of you wouldn’t like some of the outlandish heels I own! And some would be obsessed 😉 To each their own!
It’s been another wonderful week in the SHAC. You’ve all been Staying Safe, Happy And Creative with bus driver Barb, on her Monday, Wednesday & Friday sessions.
Oh boy! THE WREATHS! How beautiful they are. If you want to see what MAGNIFICENT pieces of art everyone has been working on this week, look no further than here.
The items of note this week are…
- Mix Mat
- Eraser Pencil
- Water Colour Pencils
- Tracing Paper
- Watercolour Pad
- Mandala Template
- HB pencil
- 4B Pencil
- 1 needle pergamano tool (or similar) for picking the paint away – this was a technique mentioned in today’s video…
Episode 147! Whoa… how many of you haven’t missed a single one? What a fantastic distraction this has been for all of us.
On that note, I’ll love you and leave you! Time to get back to the chat… and see if I can figure out today’s Elf Hunt clue!
Ooooh before I go! So many of you have asked me about the White Brads… GOOD NEWS! They’re finally back in stock! You can find them here.
Lotsa love, Grace xo
