Love love love these girls!

Hello there!
Thanks for stopping by. 
Once again I am at the TV studios, getting revved up to do a live US Show.
So the blog is suffering again. I will get back on track by Wednesday, I really plan on it!
Have missed getting creative daily, and touching base with you.
But I did run into a couple of my favourite women at the NEC today:


You will recognise these two,


Leonie Pujol, A-Star supreme TV Presenter on Create & Craft. Also a very good friend.


Melanie Heaton, another very lovely and talented guest presenter and artist. And also a very good friend.
So here we are, posing and larking about with the Crafts Beautiful awards I collected for Clarity today! Honestly, pinch me! Thank you so so much for voting for us at Clarity! It has been quite a year - and it's only halfway through February!!!!

Here's another great pal, who I had the honour of presenting with an award last night:
Yep, Dean, my lovely TV Husband , won this year's Best Presenter award! Well done Deano!

See you later! Got to go.....


Lots of love,
Barb xxx

  3. Hi Barb,
    What a pick-me-up, just the tonic for a bad dose of the flu, I did congratulate you this morning on yesterday's post but you probably haven't had time to read all the well wishes.
    Deb, I know what you mean, I've been trying to find the list of winners but had no luck.

  23. Nice to see you able to enjoy good company. I do enjoy watching you with Dean. He does such a good job. A doddle with you and Clarity but he's also an engaging support to other demonstrators with maybe less experience or, to me, less interesting products. Hope the US TV show went well.

  30. I watched on line - great show Barbara - just a hint of a deep voice tail tell signs of the bug you have had - but nonetheless a great show - you in your element explaining and showing new and old crafters how to get the best from a flat piece of card - great stuff.
    So many congratulations on all the awards - you so well deserve them!!!
    Take care and don't worry about us - even your wordy blogs are great!!!
    Much love
