We love it when it works!

Greetings from LA at the Create and Craft cocktail party, to celebrate what has been a fantastic launch.

 

To say it has been exciting is putting it mildly.
The channel have achieved something quite unique,



And yesterday we made history, simulcasting from here to England ! You can still watch the first live Clarity show AND the 2nd show on the US website. Createandcraft.com

One more show to record on Tuesday for America, and then our work here is done.

So today we have a few meetings and business to attend to, but Dave and I would like to thank you all for cheering us on and supporting us thus far!
What a journey!!


I have been saving this outfit for a very special occasion, and tonight was the night! 
We NEVER go to gigs like this! It was all I could do to stop trailing after the waiters with the delicious canapés!!

Have a great day guys!!

Love Barb xxx

  13. Great job guys and you both scrub up wonderfully. I am so please it went well, but why wouldn't it with your skills and determination. You deserved it and now can relax and enjoy the praise, and maybe a glass of champagne or 2. You have supported each other through an exciting stressful event and have succeeded. I am proud to have met you both and use your products. Enjoy the party. Lots of love

    1. It seems it's not an internet problem that keeps breaking up the picture and sound watching create and craft, it's their websites, I'm watching BBC iplayer with no problems at all. Does anyone know if there is any other way of watching create and craft shows on the laptop? Thank you, xx

  17. So glad to hear that it has gone well. Recorded yesterdays' show and enjoyed watching it later. Loved the Napa Valley stamps etc (having been there).

    Try to have some time that is your own. (But pinch some ideas from others if appropriate).

    Going to put in an order tomorrow.

    Some sunshine here today - what a difference that makes.

  58. So close but so far away, I have been following your for quite awhile now and so love everything you create . There are so many projects I want to do but the shipping cost were too much for me. So it was with great interest I watched the start up of Create and Craft and the world premiere of Clarity stamps. I started to order some Clarity stamp products and to my major disappointment I found I was unable to. They would not accept my Canadian credit card. Foiled again.! So, I will watch your rise to "crafty perfection " from afar and pray that one day you will honour we Canadians with you talents. P.S. Congratulations on your successful Premiere and I truly wish you all success.
