Hello hello! Grace here.
I hope this finds you happy & safe this Saturday morning!
It is that time of the week again. Saturday! Didn’t this year fly? Kind of nuts actually. Not to be an alarmist, but Christmas… is 3 Saturday’s away. WHAT?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m ready for the seeing family & friends part, the love, food, Christmassy vibes and time off part. But I am in no way ready for the gifts or cards, or logistical stuff. It just snuck right up on me. Our flights are booked though. And the tree is up! I did it on November 30th 😉 So obviously this little fiancé has got something going!
Thank you so much for all of your lovely messages of congratulations on the last blog. We’re very chuffed 🙂 Mark has COVID, which isn’t great. But he’s feeling fine now and it’s cold outside anyway. Cosy weekend in!
As I settled down on Friday afternoon, and checked in on our Facebook communities, I found some absolutely glorious artwork to share with you this week. All found on Clarity Worldwide and Groovi Worldwide.
Grab a cup of tea or coffee (I’ve got Peppermint) and take a moment to slow down your day and enjoy these with me.
Cor! What fantastic artwork. It is so hard to choose just a handful each week, but these in particular spoke to me… for one reason or another. I think they’re absolutely brilliant. And yep, you’ve guessed it! I’m scrolling back up to enjoy them again, to take in all of the details 🙂
That last one though… I couldn’t help myself but pop it in this ‘ere gallery.
Mum always pings me texts with artwork she’s done in readiness for TV shows, and this one just blew me away. All masks! How is that even possible?? I shall have to watch on Sunday, to see how she does this; I want to know!
She will be on Create And Craft tomorrow (Sunday) from 3-5pm. It’s her last tv show of 2022. And this is not one to be missed! Scene building is what Mum does best, in my humble opinion. I have vivid memories of watching her create amazing scenes at various exhibitions all over the country, using masks/masking tape, brayers, inks, and Clarity stamps. I think this is what attracted so many to Clarity (and Mum) all those years ago. And this show is all about that! I’m looking forward to it myself.
Ahead of the show, you can check out some of our fantastic Design Team samples, HERE.
And Mum wrote a fab blog all about it too, artwork included. You should really go check it out, if you haven’t already! There are loads of INSANE design team samples shared THERE.
Please join us! It’ll be a great one.

Speaking of GREAT! A reminder… The annual Christmas Hunt has begun! This year, the elves have gone off on holiday and so the Gnomes are playing the game with us! The Gnome Hunt 2022!
Mum’s told me to look for them every day with you.. and I’ve never been terribly good at it, so this should be fun! There are new things to look for this year too. An anagram challenge! You can find all of the fun info HERE.
As always, if you ever need any assistance with anything Clarity-related, my email is Grace@claritystamp.com – I’ll almost always be able to point you in the right direction.
Right, that’s enough from me. I’ll be back tomorrow for a festive step-by-step project.
By the way! You can find every step-by-step project from Clarity Matters on our website, HERE. If you’re ever looking for inspiration, there are 110+ projects there! Put together by some of our design team members, those that make those crazy beautiful samples you see on tv and online. And with each project, there’s also a shopping list already created for you on the website. Makes life easy!
Okay, I’m actually done now. Happy Saturday!
Travel gently, friends.
Lotsa love, Grace xo
