So good of you to pop in.
I wish you were here!
You’d be cleaning plates and packing stamps
before you could take your coat off!
In the run up to Ally Pally this weekend,
we are ever optimistic that things will come together...
Looking a little bit sparse at the moment, mind!
We’ve just raided Jayne’s TV/trade stash
so all is not lost!!
The stencil section’s currently in the lead,
with a pretty good selection.
Stamps not so convincing....
The Groovi Section definitely needs a little TLC....
My brother and I have been in the warehouse trying to
rustle up something to sell,
but I think it’s time for a cuppa, because he’s losing it.
And he’s also starting to get a little clingy....
But seriously folks!
The Clarity Crew are once again going like the clappers
to get us up to speed by Friday.
Most have gone home now - 10 hours is plenty.
But as usual, the same faithful few are here until the bitter end.
Lovely Lisa on cleaning and artboards,
dapper Dave on coffee round,
and general all round goodness,
Paul on Groovi Production
(he definitely pulled the short straw!)
Lauren on Word Chain Stamp packing,
Steve on Van loading and entertainment,
and last but not least my buddy Jim,
on graphics and signage.
We haven’t done a retail show since last November,
so we can’t find a blimming thing !!!
And tomorrow, I have to prepare for a TV Show (1 hour)
which is being streamed live from Ally Pally at 1pm on Saturday,
so I can’t even help here, which I am unhappy about,
but most here will be secretly relieved about!
Tell you what though - the new Groovi plates being launched during that hour are splendiferous!
Shall I give you a peek?
Yep, we’ve gone Japanesey!
I just think that Parchment art and blossoms and Geishas
are a veritable match made in heaven.
So please pardon me for no writing a mindful blog today,
but I really have to focus on bloggy Wednesdays,
and today was a warehouse & price-guns kinda day.
So I will press on, and get back to it.
Tick a few more boxes here before I go home....
love & hearty hugs,
