Thank you for stopping by today.
Doesn’t feel like a Friday, does it?
Friday’s blog a private peek.
We are back at work, well half of us, trying to get revved up for
Sunday morning’s TV show.
I hope you join Dean and myself; some fab new stamps and stencils being showcased on the first show of the year.
And a brilliant selection of canvas boards!
New Year, New Art!
Then it’s off to Los Angeles for the CHA in Anaheim,
the biggest, most prestigious Craft Trade Show in the world.
We will be broadcasting from the States to the States,
and also to the UK.
Lots of planning involved, believe you me!
No time to have my hair done either!!!
Dee and I are wading through demos and samples today.
I am so proud of the artwork the Clarity Design Team is sending me off with. It really does make my job so much easier!
Lots of masterpieces being lovingly packed into Dave’s suitcase...
I need mine for make up and clothes!
Just kidding! I’ve got all the demo gear in mine!
Clothes? Not a priority just now;
this is no time for vanity!
And I’m sure I will find something in LA...
The artwork is the key to the shows.
Always has been.
When I arrive at the hotel in Peterborough the night before a show, I am always so worried the car will get stolen during the night and the artwork will be gone, I haul the lot into the hotel room!
Not worried about the car, that’s what we’ve got insurance for,
but if the pizza boxes full of samples went, together with my prep boxes, that would be the end of play. No show.
Am I mad? Nope.
I’ve weighed up the chances of the car being stolen against
a fire in the hotel. And I think the car is more likely to get it.
And after over 6 years of this arduous exercise, you KNOW that the night I get complacent, and say sod it, the car will be targeted.
Or shall I risk it tomorrow? Shall I blow caution to the wind, and assume that the car won’t get nicked?
Maybe I AM mad after all...
I will let you know nearer the time when the shows will be broadcasting and repeating back to Britain, too.
If all goes according to plan though,
- and why shouldn’t it? -
there will be a LIVE link between
Clarity at the CHA and Create & Craft UK.
If you tune in to C&C here in England on
Saturday 10th January at 12 lunchtime,
you should be able to watch a Clarity Show being aired LIVE.
Provided the suitcases arrive safely....
Much love to you,
