Guess what?

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in.
Oh boy! Have we got good news again!!

This little blog of ours did it again!
Even on the International Platform this year, we got GOLD !!!
Chuffed.
Very chuffed.

We got Silver for Best Rubber Stamp Range,
which is great,


and I got Silver for Favourite Craft Celebrity,
which is very flattering.


So what can I say?

Thank you.
Thank you for voting if you did,
thank you to the Clarity Crew for making it happen,
thank you for reading this blog every day,
and thank you for supporting Clarity.
Because without you, we wouldn’t have a company!



Time to go put the kettle on,
and reflect on what next...

    2. Hi Donna,hope you've had a good Monday. Had a bit of a play with some stamps before I made tea tonight. Don't laugh, Easter stamps. Love and hugs Pam xxx

      Delete
    3. Not tonight, catching up on recorded programmes. Woke up this morning with a blood red eye, so have been freaking the children out all day! I even covered it up with a post it note with an eye drawn on it. Xx

      Delete
    4. Wow Pam, I thought Sheila was getting ahead by practicing for February, but doing Easter stamping is very impressive! Xx

      Delete
    5. Donna, I had a go with the chromo card this afternoon. The talc trick really works, no sliding at all. Part of my problem is that the stamp I was using has a bit of dip in it so I press too hard. If I press lightly I can fill in any gaps with an alcohol pen. Next time I plan to make a card I will practise first. Thanks for your help.

      Delete
    6. Hi Donna
      Oh no, the eye doesn't sound good - I'm sure they would have sent you home if you were a child! Like the idea of the post it note eye - what a great idea ( or should that be eyedea!) this teaching lark isn't good for your health is it. Take care of yourself and happy crafting xxxxx

      Delete
    7. Hi Jan, glad to hear the stamping was a success I have used talc on acetate which is shiny like chromo card and it definitely helped. Happy crafting! Xx

      Delete
    8. Haaaa haaaaa Diane! Eyedea! That made me laugh, the children were funny. It was an equal mix of horror and concern! One even asked if I was going to get a metal eye as mine was broken. I told him mine was fine to which he replied with a look of sorrow (and a sigh) "I don't think so, you should get a new one". Xx

      Delete
    9. Hope your eye isn't painful, do you think you rubbed it in your sleep? So funny how the children reacted, like your post it idea.xx

Your blog and products are fantastic and you are such a genuine and lovely person. My wee houses and shops arrived today, they are lovely and I'm looking forward to having a play.

  89. That's blooming awesome Barbara! Way to go Clarity and her awesome team! I also think it's more than deserved too. I am spring cleaning my stamps, stencils, all of that stuff right now and it's funny because some of the stamps, not Clarity, are having to be thrown out after just one or two uses, they won't stick to any block and bit bit they fall apart.
    The Clarity stamps may not stick to the block as well, but that's what a pritt type stick (nothing nasty in, no acid) is for. Some of my Clarity stamps are fifteen years old and still going strong. They are mine and god forbid anyone says maybe you should move them on - not if they want to keep their hands I tell them. They make me smile, I remember when I bought, how often I have used, or not, and then I think must dig that one out again lol!
    Buy Clarity stamps and you have them for life! Karen xx
