Stuck in traffic!

Hey, Paul here!

Just had a call from Barbara to say she is on her way back from Peterborough after hanging around for some meetings after her TV shows earlier today and is stuck in traffic on the A1.

So she has asked me to share this You Tube video with you all on how to use the fibres that she demonstrated on Hochanda earlier today



Normal service will be resumed tomorrow!!!

  9. These were my first ever Clarity stamps, and I still love them, and love doing this technique! Can't say I ever do the sewing bit, but maybe one day!!! Hope you have a safe journey home, and some time to relax and unwind tomorrow, Susan x

    2. Hi Dave I've only seen the Groovi one so far but really enjoyed it, lovely and relaxed with no hard sell and blow me the items still sold out! It was interesting to see Barbara was allowed to continue demonstrating too - she looked very relaxed and happy. Hope you had a good day and didn't tire yourself out too much x

  17. You're a 🌟Paul! Barbara, the last thing you need after three hours of demo work is to be stuck in traffic. Hope you are home safe and sound 'soonest.' Time for a cup of tea and pjs, I think! ;~}

  25. Now come on.... this sounds like a good excuse to observe the supermoon/lunar eclipse.
    Hope I have recorded today's shows successfully - tried to watch online but it kept 'freezing'. I hoped it was because HOCHANDA's system was clogged up with everyone buying Clarity!
    Roll on next month!
    Love
    Maggie

  26. Thanks Paul for doing the post and Barbara hope you and Dave have had a restful night. I thought the afternoon show was brill and not too much interruption from Scott. I'm afraid though the Groovi show for me was spoilt by Martin keep interrupting, if we could maybe keep Scott on your shows or at least off load Martin to other shows that would be good. But hey Barbara you were cool, relaxed and interesting.

  27. Thanks for that, Paul! Hope Barbara got home safe and not too late. Fantastic shows yesterday, Barbara. Taped them and then sat up far too late watching them! Hanging by a thread today... and all I did was WATCH the programmes, not make them and then drive home and get stuck in traffic :) Thank you for all your lovely ideas. And that card you showed us at the end that looks like a book cover, it's absolutely beautiful. It has inspired me to buy the stamps!

  28. So sorry that you got stuck in traffic Barbara when all you wanted to do is get home. What a fantastic show with so many demonstrations and so many ideas. I must try the fibre it makes a lovely padded image. I am looking forward to the classroom shows too. Thank you Paul for the video.

  30. Hi Paul, thanks for stepping into the breach!
    I managed to watch some of your shows Barbara and am looking forward to enjoying the recorded playbacks today (without distractions). I hope the rest of your return journey wasn't as bad.

  31. Couldn't watch online here on USA , everything seems screwed up . Disappointed

  32. Hi Paul, It's must be great for Barbara to have support from her team on incredibly busy days like today. I was blown away by all the samples on the shows today and have already ordered the stencil set. One of these days I will give in to the groove and get the starter set - for the moment colouring in is my way of being mindful. Fantastic shows on Hochanda - I think the afternoon show was better because it wasn't so rushed being twice the length of the Groovi show. Looking forward to being able to craft along in the coming months. Hope everyone made it home safely and had a restful night.
