Hi there, avid blog readers. Thanks for joining me on Clarity Matters. Now, there are some pretty sweet Clarity matters to talk to you about today and I’m rather excited to do so.
But first, I thought I’d share a nice happy thing. As you all know it was Valentine’s Day on Sunday, (hands up, who received a lovely little email from a certain craft company on the day)? And, of course, for reasons that we’re far too well aware of by now, the restaurants and venues were all closed when otherwise they might have been a little bit busier than usual. When lovers of all varieties took the initiative to demonstrate fondness and affection for one another. And, I know that a lot of people just didn’t bother this year. And I know that some people never feel like celebrating, for various reasons. But, even though we never really need one, it’s nice to have an excuse to show a little bit of extra love, right? So, my wife had the very sweet idea to bake heart-shaped biscuits and deliver them to our friends who live within walking distance. So that’s what we did. Wifeby baked these delicious little morsels, dipped them in white chocolate with a pink marble effect and we bunched them up in spotty cellophane, tied with a ribbon and a heart-shaped tag attached. And we dropped them off to four families we know. Anyway, there you go. A happy little story to share. My wife is a nice one! Also, those are gluten-free biscuits and they aren’t too crumbly… Great recipe.
Alright, that’s enough of that. Time to get down to business. Biscuits are great chit-chat but really, what you want to know is what’s coming up this week… And, quite frankly, there is some really cool stuff coming up.
Firstly, we’ve got the Pergamano Show on HOCHANDA this Thursday. As usual, the Pergamano show aims to teach and educate, helping you to grow in your love for and knowledge of this beautiful art form. Featuring the launch of our brand new Plate Mate for Groovi Grids, Barb and Paul will guide you through the amazing benefits this new Plate Mate offers and showcase how useful it is for enhancing your grid work. It’s a Plate Mate for A5 square sized Groovi Grids. So, to demonstrate the benefits of the brand new Plate Mate, we’re bringing along our Kings and Queens’ Grid Duet Plates for the ride. Combined with the new Plate Mate, the creative potential is massive and we can’t wait to show off the artwork and projects!
So, please do join Barb and Paul at 11am and 3pm this Thursday. You’ll absolutely enjoy it
Secondly, we’re excited to announce the next ‘A Moment of Clarity’. We were thrilled with the amazing response to the premiere last month, and so a second episode was inevitable!
Please do join Barbara Gray on Friday 19th February at 3pm. Barb will be launching Holland inspired Windmill and Button designs from the Clarity SHAC Shack. The designs will be available in stamp and Groovi versions and Barb will be showcasing their brilliance through live demos and incredible artwork inspiration.
We do hope to see you there, and, if you’ve ordered the products already, you’ll be able to craft-along live with Barb, too! If you click here, you can purchase these elegant new designs in your preferred format. They might not arrive in time for Friday (but you never know) but you’ll have them nice and quickly after watching and will be able to indulge your newly inspired creativity nice and quickly!
Well, if that’s not enough to get those creative juices flowing, I don’t know what is?! And we do hope you’re as excited as we are.
Lastly, just before I go, for a little bit of fun, I thought we’d run a little poll. (Not a competition, I’m afraid). It may or may not have passed you by, the fact that today is shrove-stu’s-day, or pankate day, as we call it in our house. So, which is your favourite type of pankate, I err mean, pancake?! The fluffy American style, or the wide flat crepe style? Quite frankly, I can’t decide. They both work well as gluten-free, just depends on the day. Anyway, pick your answer below, and it will be fun to see which one wins, right?
Well, by for now. Stuart!
