Monday's blog is Trees and Flowers,
Tuesday's blog rolls back the hours;
Wednesday's blog is something New,
Thursday's blog is always Blue;
Friday's blog a private peek,
Saturday's blog a new technique;
But the blog which is posted on the Sabbath day
is step by step,
and typical Gray!
I hope you are well, and able to take a day off today.
I thought it would be a good day to give away some prizes and put a smile on a few faces. So, let’s start with the Trees on the Gelli Plate exercise from a while ago (see blog posted 31st March). I used an Gelli Plate brickwall remnant to create a treeline, remember?
And the challenge was to make suggestions to finish, add to or enhance the wall. Well, Carole Panksztelo went one step further, and sent me her interpretation. Take a look.... Fantastic, or what?!
I love how she has come down in front of the wall with the trees, too.
So hats off to Carole, and a big round of applause. Carole, don’t think I need to send you my wall; yours is excellent! So a £20 Clarity gift voucher on its way to you next week instead. Next was the Limerick session. Remember the corset card last week?
We laughed our heads off that day in the car to and from Ally Pally. They were all hilarious. Each and every one! Here are a couple which had us in stitches, from Cardgenie
There once was a man from Dorset Who liked to wear his wife’s corset The lace caused a rash Which caused him to scratch And he ended up with a sore set!
from Linda Page
There once was a man from Dorset Who like to wear his wife's corset He tried it at night; It was really quite tight And he ripped it by trying to force it
But I think the one which cracked us up most was this one: from Jocelyn: There once was a man from Dorset Who liked to wear his wife's corset He'd dress up and play While she was away 'Cos they're funny like that in Dorset!
So, in keeping with the Laughometer,
another £20 Gift Voucher goes to Jocelyn.
To the other 2 ladies, Linda and the Cardgenie: how about a consolation prize?
Each pick a Claritystencil on the website, and call Janice next week on 01732 868215 with your choice. We will get them sent out to you. xx
And now to a random good egg at Easter.
A £50 Gift Voucher goes to ...
Just for being positive and uplifting, and because we can. xxx
So there we are. I figured out a long time ago, never to tire of doing the next right thing, and that small, indiscriminate, random acts of kindness make the world a better place.
