We have a Blog Candy Winner!!!!!

Hiya!
Thanks for popping in.
Quick turnaround here, 
and back up to HOCHANDA tomorrow,
all set for a ONE DAY GROOVI SPECIAL,
launching tomorrow evening at 8pm.

Am I ready?
Sure.

What are we launching?
A Storage System?
That’s nice.

Not just any old storage system...
A Groovi Storage System....

And somewhere,
buried under this lot, 
is mine. 

Is it a load of blue trays?
Nope.
Is it green and made out of cardboard?
Nope, but getting warmer.
Actually this whole counter is stacked with storage systems!


How many can you count?
And can you guess where the new storage is buried?
It’s here, honest!

Ahh. The cavalry has just arrived.


Don’t say a word Church!


If I’d known you were coming, I would have baked a cake.

Ah! I’ve just seen my glasses!
That’ll help.


Before I crack on and get in the groove with Paul,
one of you clever people actually guessed the number of stamps Kathleen used to create her wonderful mirror in 
Thursday’s blog.



I counted 32.
And so did.....
Dawn Rogers and her Mum!!!

They even sent in a spreadsheet with all the codes !!!!
Amazing organisation!

Well done ladies.
£20 Clarity Gift Voucher on its way to you 
as soon as you email me your address.

Just two more questions for the winners:


What are you like at tidying up?
And how far away do you live????


BFN
Love & Hugs,

PS.Since you like counting, how about another challenge?
How many storage solutions can you count in the picture....
From where I’m sitting, I’d say you’ve got 2 hopes:
Bob Hope and No Hope.


Answers below. 
A lucky random winner
will receive yet another £20 gift voucher on Friday....

  2. I was going to ask you for a Groovi storage system, Barbara, so I will watch tomorrow with great interest! I have mine all in a lovely box with a perspex side, so I can see what's in it. A great idea, but I only ever found one box like it! Look forward to seeing you over the next couple of days – all on record. Be awesome, as usual! :) K xx

  4. heck looks like my table in my Den, and we won't even talk about the one that my laptop is on - and that theoretically has no crafting working in progress on it! However,at the moment my Groovi stuff is safe in an old laptop bag! (and I know where that is too! lol

    As for the number of storage solutions a quick count made it at least 21 ! Mags x

  7. Loved the shows yesterday. Superb samples from the design teams. I will be watching tomorrow and Wednesday. Look forward to seeing Lee having a play with the Groovi system.
    I count 29 for storage solutions. Cheers Fi x

  8. I counted 13 but did not count all the file folde4s. 29 - bit over the top but surely nearer mine. My craft room is in utter chaos - wedding invitations, christmas cards, groovi - not to mention 40 cards which I have just sold for Guide Dogs for the Blind - I am buying a dog - good said the old man, I am getting a dog. Sorry it is really the money going to buy a guide dog. All made with Clarity stamps. I am so pleased all those years ago, I found Barbara and her helpers.
    Best wishes to everyone - I am on a high, having done something good today, and had such pleasure in making the cards.

  12. I am rubbish at tidying up, Barbara. Are you offering to come and sort my craft room out? I am a bit like a dog digging for a bone when I need something particular for a class or workshop. Everything goes flying everywhere and that means all over the house. Looking forward to the storage shows tomorrow. Take care and have fun. xxx Maggie

  14. Hello Barbara

    I have no idea how many storage items there are but, obviously, not enough. Lol. I watched yesterday's shows today and would like to say how much I enjoyed the content and the format on Hochanda is fantastic.

  16. Can't count tonight, a bit 'wabbit' (tired) from clearing yet more things (craft stuff this time but not from the craft room!!!) for yet another charity bag. Taking this decluttering quite seriously but can't bear to think of trying to empty the garage. Order in a skip, I think! Onwards and outwards!
    Decluttering has not deterred me from more Clarity orders, however, all encouraged by yesterday's wonderful shows. ;~}

  17. Hi,
    Home today from a weekend visiting our newly married daughter so just watched yesterday's shows. Can't wait to see the new calendar, the old one has had pride of place on one of my craft cupboard doors since I got it. I think there may be 28 storage solutions on the table, not all different ones but all capable of holding something. We can find a use for anything we crafters can't we!
    Looking forward to the Groovi day this week.
    Love, Gill

  18. Hi Barbara
    Looking forward to seeing your one day special and your demo's of course.
    I think I count 18 there's probably loads more.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Your table looks a bit like mine, except mine is supposed to be the dining table. I get regular sarcastic comments from my husband about our inability to eat at it. I feel like I tidy up regularly but never seems to make a dent! Ah well, as long as I'm having fun!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Woo-hoo!! Delighted to have won the blog candy - have to say, once we'd started the count, we were determined to see it through, but it took a while ... so, to answer your question, Barbara, we're pretty awful at tidying up because we get too easily sidetracked by challenges like that! But keep 'em coming, it's fun!

  22. Barbara, so enjoyed your shows yesterday. I always learn so much from you. I don't know how many organizational items you use, but definitely, they aren't working. I have to keep my craft studio ultra tidy or I just can't create. I little OCD, I think. If you would like to fly me in from Canada, I would love to help organize your space. Looking forward to the new shows and seeing how you organize the Groovi System For the A5 plates, I use one of the stencil folders. It works just great as it is the perfect size. Looking for something for the long side plates though. Am sure I will be ordering the new system when I see it. Rest up as you have a busy few days coming up.

  23. Wow, looks like the three surfaces I have in my craft room.....I counted 15 storage solutions x

    ReplyDelete
  24. Caught up on the shows today. Great viewing and an order has been sent to Clarity Towers but I suspect that more will follow after tomorrow's show. I'm not sure how many storage systems but will hazard a guess at 23. Good luck with tomorrow's shows xxx

  33. Hi Barbara now that's what I call organised chaos ! I counted 25 storage items but I'm sure there is more - I've probably only touched the surface! From the look on Paul's face I guess he's an organised crafter! Brenda if your looking in, we need you, it's time to get the Clarity bus on the road again, Barbara needs our help with tidying up - she may even let us near her rubbish bins! Lol. Have a good nights sleeponight and safe journey tomorrow.
    Love Diane xxxxx

  36. Ooh a table like mine! A new srorage idea for anything is always welcome. I see acouple of blue ones a white one a green one a clear one a brown and a one black ( i can sing a rainbow!) one hexaganal thingy random sleeves ( no arm holes) and a most important one for holding TEA. About 42 i guess as thats the answer to everything! Lots of love and will be glued to the TV later. Jxx

  37. The table of a crafter! My kitchen table sometimes gets messy like that! Loved the shows looking forward to the next few. A wild guess at your storage systems emmmmm maybe 13 x

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hello Barb, you know what the saying is "a tidy desk is the sign of an unsound mind" some famous scientific person said that. Hopefully Paul helped you sort it out, maybe if he did well he can do mine. Well done to Dawn and Mum, I got up to 29 on the stamps used. Will try have a go at the storage solution guess later. Good luck with the Groovi shows, I am sure they will be great and as inspiring as all your shows. Take care. Bx

  39. I love your craftroom look it is perfect and looks very much like mine! They only thing is I don't have storage systems on my work surface!!! I think the number is 28 please don't ask me how I got that number as I can't remember now lol.

  49. Just playing catch up today - had a lovely spa day yesterday with my buddy! I've counted 19 storage solutions, but I'm just feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the clutter!!! I'm not naturally tidy, but my other half was a process and change consultant before we set up our business, so I'm learning new organisational skills all the time X

Thank you for your kind messages and I hope you get inspiration from my ramblings.
