Hello hello, friends! Grace here.
What a week! I hope all of our friends in the UK have coped alright with the heatwave. We have similar temperatures most of the summer here in New York BUT many of us survive in air conditioning. I do anyway! I can confess that I am not the best version of myself when it’s too hot (if I’m not on a beach) so I was feeling for you all this week.
I’d like to say this too shall pass but many of us know that it will get hotter and hotter from here. Time to invest in some air conditioning me thinks! At least in the hospitals and nursing homes. Oh and the underground! 😉 I’ll consider moving back if they put in air conditioning hahah.
Ooooh! Very cool news for our American (and Canadian) friends! We are throwing a Summer Sale on our Amazon USA store. Wooo! We know that so many of our US customers have to pay higher prices for shipping, and they do anyway! We love you for it. But we’ve decided to throw some light on our Amazon store stateside and put a sale on.
Our American friends can grab some great Clarity bargains and benefit from much lower shipping costs (free, if you have prime!) all at the same time. And once we’ve cleared some stock on Amazon, our plan is to restock with more goodies! Like parchment, papers, and popular items.
Yep! That’s right. 40% off Stamps & Stencils and 30% off everything else in the store. That includes Card, Parchment, Groovi Plates, Dies, Paper Flowers, Masks, Foam, Books, Brads & Scissors. We’re feeling generous and just want to thank our US customers for sticking with us, regardless of shipping costs and wait times. You rock!
The sale started yesterday and runs through until Monday August 1st, so head on over to the store and check it out! Click below.
And now for our weekly Saturday Sharefest!
I settled down at the end of this week to gather your gorgeous artwork from both Clarity Worldwide and Groovi Worldwide. Many of you will have noticed the welcome posts on these groups… so many new lovely members! We’re pretty thrilled about it. An ever-growing family of creative & like-minded individuals, supporting & advising each other, as well as appreciating each other’s artwork. Our Clarity community.
As I was searching this week, I came across these photos of some of our much-loved friends gathering for their own craft day. It made me smile and I just had to share…
Pretty lovely really, innit xo
Right, let’s have a look through the artwork selected for the Share blog this week. They really are so striking and special. Let’s dive in…
Gosh! Aren’t they EPIC? Can we have a virtual round of applause?!
I spent way too long perusing this week, as there was so much wonderful artwork to choose from. These cards all just jumped right off the screen at me, and I could not resist. So much talent and creativity in our little Clarity community. You never cease to amaze us!
Thanks for joining me on a Saturday! I do love these little sharefests, and I think you do too. Thank you also for all of your lovely and supportive comments each week, I just know how it lifts others’ spirits to see their work appreciated by others. I’ll be back again tomorrow with an absolutely fabulous step-by-step tutorial, not to be missed.
Oh yes! And if you love Clarity and believe us to be deserving, please go and vote for us in the 7 categories in which we’ve been nominated. We’d really love to bring some awards home! You can do so HERE.
We very much appreciate you. Enjoy your day and stay safe 🙂
Travel gently, friends.
Lotsa love, Grace xo

Thank you very much for showing my card here Grace. It is so inspiring to look at all these beautiful cards ! It is helpful to be part of these groups, Clarity and Groovi, with like minded people who are always so generous with advices and encouraging with uplifting comments and words which go direct to the heart. I am so grateful.
Thank you Grace for your work and if you wish, I blow some fresh air from Brittany in France and a few droplets from the fresh sea to you 💨 🧜♀️ 😊 … take care. Élisabeth
Hello Grace. Thank you for showing my card. As always the variety of artwork is inspiring. It’s been lovely this week with lots of people sharing their Shac Shac buttons and giving encouragement to those of us (well certainly me) to keep going and not give up. My donuts have gradually started to look more like buttons. Hope everyone has a good week.
Wow! Absolutely gorgeous!
Hello Grace, I really enjoy seeing all the wonderful art work each week. Like you say they just jump off the page when scrolling through the Groovi/Clarity sites. I have a little guess of my own each week and so many times I see the same ones chosen by you too! They are so beautiful I look at them often during the week. Thank you xx
Another beautiful selection of artwork this week Grace; congratulations to all participants. I’m sure your Mum & Dave would put you air conditioning in if it meant you’d live here in the UK.
As everyone has said above its another great selection of art this week. Monday & Tuesday were too hot for me & I was glad when the cooler weather returned. Trouble is it doesn’t build up slowly so we become accustomed to it & then it disappears before we can blink. Typical British weather that at least keeps us talking !!
Looking forward to seeing what Tina has for us this afternoon on C&C then tomorrow I will check in to see what project you & the DT have for us to try. Trying to catch up with some outstanding projects – several only need attaching to a card but I keep getting distracted by all the photos on facebook.
Have a good weekend x
Thankyou so much for showing my “buttons” from this week’s shac shac. I absolutely loved watching Barbara do these, it was just what I needed. I love all things clarity, and love seeing all the beautiful artwork from all the talented people .
Beautiful artwork! Thankyou so much Grace for your lovely blogs – I do look forward to them, and the time you obviously take to put them together. So positive and encouraging!
Have a lovely weekend – and stay cool. xx
What an array of inspiration and talent, I’m not quite sure how I snuck in there but I do appreciate you taking an interest in my work, it’s very humbling. I’ve really enjoyed jumping on the groovi bus and I am bowled over by the warmth of the groups, thank you for such a lovely welcome 💖
Some wonderful artwork in the Saturday share so a big thank you for including my little offering! My votes have been cast for all Clarity related nominations. Good luck! Xx
Amazing cards as always. Glad I don’t have to choose which to include!
Also very glad it was only two days of extreme heat as I needed to finish two parchment cards and couldn’t touch them.
Have a good weekend, Grace. Xx
I don’t envy you choosing art work for the gallery Grace .
Thank you for including my piece .
Thank you Grace for a beautiful selection of cards. I sat down with a cuppa to look through them and to open my groovi club which arrived in the post today and to read the newsletter. I am looking forward to Tina later to see her amazing work. Travel gently and stay cool .x
Another great selection of artwork Grace. Some I’d not seen. It must be very difficult to choose which ones to show. Always love the Saturday share so inspiring xx
Thank you most kindly for including my work; as ever an array of beautiful projects from the Clarity contributors, so many talented people out there.
Thank you for including my card this week Grace. I feel really chuffed to be amongst all those beauties and it gives me encouragement to do more. We are our own worst critics aren’t we?!
Your blog is always so cheerfully chatty and always a joy to read.
Yep it was certainly on the warm side earlier in the week….but like your Mum says “if you don’t like the British weather….just wait a minute” and she’s so right! Have a good week x
Thank you, Grace, for including our little craft group in the Saturday share and also my card.
There were so many great cards on the group sites this week that you also noticed.
Wow 🤩 thank you Grace for featuring my card. It’s my first proper piece and I’m really happy. Thank you again.😊
Oh Wow, could these cards get any better. Have looked through a few times, they are all so gorgeous and Shari Levys card certainly made me chuckle as welll.
Yes I agree about this weather, just too hot for me, gone are the days where I could have laid out in it. Phew. xx
Lovely selection of cards, so inspiring. xx
Whew, busy day today, helping number 1 daughter and granddaughter prepare for trip to Vancouver on Monday to visit daughter number 2 and family. Then they are ALL coming back here and I haven’t seen them for over 3 years. It will be the first time since my grandchildren were born that we have all been together, so very exciting and I can’t settle to much.
I have seen and commented on most of these lovely pieces of art and I am thrilled to be included in your gallery, as the standard just seems to get better. Thank you so much Grace.
The heat was too much for me to craft this week, so I sat, with wine cooling sleeves on my feel and ankles and caught up with some long delayed reading.
Stay cool and happy weekend. XX
Too hot for me to parch this week so I have been stamping and colouring toppers and will make up the cards when it is cooler.
Watched Tina today, she is clever.
Club package arrived today, excellent content as usual.
Stay safe in this heat. 🍒
Thank you for choosing my card Grace from such a fabulous choice of cards. xx
Hi Grace, some lovely pics here as always, I think I’d spotted them all on the pages and I always try to guess which ones you will pic too! We have our meet up tomorrow of Oxfordshire people so if anyone wants to come along we will be in Witney library tomorrow, Monday 25 July, from 1.30 – 3.30. Ani Catt arranges it and she’s already encouraged a couple of people into Groovi I think. Not sure what I’m going to take to do tomorrow but have plenty to choose from that’s for sure! Have a good weekend, what’s left of it. We had a family bbq here last night so I have the dishwasher to unload (love it for these occasions) and look to see what they left us to eat today – not a lot ! X
Love seeing your weekly selection of exquisite cards. Always plenty of inspiration. Thank you
Beautiful cards you have chosen again Grace, I agree there is so much talent around. It was too hot last week to do any parchment work, I started on my anniversary card yesterday and it’s coming along nicely, I’m using the card from last weeks blog.
I’ve done my voting and I hope that Barbara and Clarity are winners in all of there categories.
If anyone out there lives near Crawley and does Groovi and traditional parchment and would like to meet up, please PM me or find me on Facebook (Karin Horton). All the groups I have seen are up north, I’m lonely down here.
Looking forward to seeing next weeks share and reading Grace’s blog. 💖
Just managed to catch up with the blog. Always such fab inspiration from everyone. Thanks for sharing these Grace – you always find ones I’ve missed in the week xx
