Thank You for Voting! £50 Gift Voucher to be won...

Hello there! Thanks for stopping by! 
There we were yesterday morning, once again at the crack of dawn,
 gearing up for the last Clarity TV show at the CHA, when Jim from the UK office texted us some brilliant news: 

Thanks to you lovely people who voted for Clarity, we won 4 craft awards:

Best Rubber Stamp Range (5th year)
Best Overall Designer (5th year)
Best Craft Blog (1st year)


I was also runner up in the Favourite Craft Celebrity Category,


What a brilliant result! Dave and I are so chuffed!

It really feels good to know that you like what we do, and that all the work is appreciated.
Well done to the Stampmakers and Design Team! 
Between you and me, the Craft Blog award really made my heart sing this year. 
Blogging has changed my whole outlook. I love it!
Can't recommend it enough. 



I think I'll give away a £50 Clarity gift voucher to celebrate.
Leave a message below, and tomorrow we will randomly pick a winner. 
Let's make somebody else smile like we did yesterday!

Lots of love, and thank you...

  92. brilliant news Barbara - well deserved!! I was thinking of giving up on my cardmaking hobby but thanks to your blog and your inspiration I have changed direction a little and become a Clarity girl and am enjoying my hobby again - so thank you for your inspiration and your natural ability to teach us your techniques.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Just thought - surely someone must nominate you for an MBE or whatever? Needs to be someone closer to you who can really talk about the commercial impact as well as the social but I bet we would all be willing to act as referees!! You have - singlehandedly - made such a difference to peoples lives by showing what can be done with great tools and support/inspiration from a great teacher. I have one other stamp designer whom I 'follow' and between you you make me think 'I can have a go at that!' - not always successfully but with great fun and enjoyment!

  147. Congratulations, but no real surprise. The recognition is so well deserved. You are an inspiration for your crafting, your products and innovation, and especially your humanity towards everyone, which is so evident in everything you say and do. I think you'd probably win awards in any field you turned your talents to. Wonderful team too. I called to renew my Club membership this week and had the bonus of a lovely chat and joke or two with your team member. Enjoy your break. x

Well worth the wait though. Much love x

  151. Congratulations
    And jubilations
    I want the world to know I'm happy as can be.

    Who could believe that I could be arty and contented
    I used to think craft happiness hadn't been invented
    But that was in the bad old days before I met you
    when I let your blog into my life.

  153. Hi Barbara, this is brilliant news, many congratulations to you and to Dave and your team too. Very much deserved awards. (I'm glad I made the huge effort it took me to vote for you :)) Barbara you give so much of your time, and of you to us, that is so special and a very precious gift I receive from you each and every day. It's no exaggeration to say this blog of yours has been and is still a huge part of getting me through an extremely difficult time in my life, on top of all your craft product must haves, demos and inspiration. Even my special person Nicola talks about what you and your blog is doing for me and giving me :). I couldn't be happier for you (feeling very not well today but this news has managed to cheer me up and put a smile on my face :)) I bet you are still grinning from ear to ear and still doing your happy dance. This following on from your successful USA launch, and both oh so deserved after many years of your hard work.

    You are one very special lady
    enjoy your break
    love Brenda xx

  163. Hi Barbara and team Clarity

    Of course you have won loads. We all love your work and of course your blogs and inspirational words.

    The USA must now be wondering how they managed without Clarity! We certainly could not.

    Most days I have a good LOL (laugh out loud) moment and love all your private peaks.........especially those that involve your mum and shopping trolley!

    Keep up the great work and safe journey home.

    Lol

  167. Hello Barbara and everyone who has worked so hard this year to make Clarity the best! I think the magic of your blog is that you share your highs with us and we celebrate with you, but also your lows and we truly feel that being here for you makes a difference too! So more power to your computer and long may it continue. Get out the champagne and raise a glass to everyone who voted for the best craft business ever, anywhere!! xx Margaret Col.
