LAST ORDERS AND A BRAND NEW STENCIL BONUS....

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in today.
It’s all go here at Clarity Towers!

The phones are ringing,
Jeannine is in full swing...

even Laurent her son is helping!


Debbie, Paul and Steve are picking for England


and Izzy’s up to her waist in boxes!


Plenty of laughter here,


Ooh I say !!!


Steve and Dave are gooning about, making miles of Groovi plates!


Oh. And building a new machine room 
ready for mega expansion next year....


And Jim?
Yep, Jim’s here too.
He’s working on a brand new stencil design...


When I came in this morning, 
you should have seen their faces when I announced,
“I’ve had an idea.”

2 minutes later, we’re all on it.
Here’s the plan.

The Gray Super Sale runs until midnight tonight.
I have been reading all your comments,
about sitting on your hands,
trying to resist,
wanting to come back for one more look,
shall I shan’t I shall I shan’t I ....

So here’s what I think.
How about I make you an offer you can’t refuse,
just to tip the scales?

On top of the 33% blanket sale, 
and in addition to your gold and diamond member’s discount,
what if we pop an extra something lovely in your Sunday order?
Would you go back then?

If you go back in to the Gray Sale
- old website OR new website -
(whichever you feel most comfy in)
 and spend another £20 before midnight,
(after discount)
we will send you this brand new, fresh out of the oven,
never been seen before,
very beautiful and extremely useful - not to mention seasonal -
extra long and lovely vine stencil
FREE.
rrp. £5.99


Drawn by our Melanie, 
and just waiting to be pulled into production. 

It won’t show up on your order.
We will simply include it when we pack your 
SUNDAY ORDER.

Let’s keep it simple:
ANY SUNDAY ORDER OVER £20 (after all your discounts).
So if you put your order in this morning and it was £20 +, 
you’ll receive the beautiful stencil too. 

Love & Hugs,
Barb

SALE ENDS MIDNIGHT TONIGHT.

    1. Hi bloggy friends,
      Hope today is good for you all. Just off to do some Groovi inserts for my coasters and plan out a card for Dave. Later on Alison's taxi is back in business as I'm off up to Newcastle Airport to pick up my Sister and brother in law back from their latest jaunt to Switzerland - it's a good job I love them! Love and hugs to you all, Alison xx

    3. Hi Morag, do you remember me from back a few years when I started doing parchment. Ronny (daisymae, from Utah) We did swaps together and you helped me with other things too. Have thought about you often.

  6. Oh Barbara, what are you doing to us. Are you santa in disguise?!!! Well, confession time, guess what I've just been doing, making another basket of goodies, all treats this time. Didn't get as far as checking out, but it's all still sat in my basket. Can I resist, what do you think....

    Glad to see your happy team. Looks a brilliant place to work. I know exactly what you mean about their faces when you say you have an idea. How do I know that, because I get the same from my garden guy when I say I have an idea!!!! We've learned my ideas tend to be not so simple as they first seem!!! πŸ˜‰ All in fun though, he's always up for a challenge and to make things happen for me, it's usually me needing to be the sensible one! Only the other day he was asking me if I'd gone soft, because my christmas tree plan for this year is far simpler than he was expecting!!! It's ok, I reassured him I haven't gone soft, I've plenty other plans for when we get the chance to get stuck into my garden properly...

    Hope today continues to be a happy one for you all, and for everyone here too
    Love Brenda xx

  8. Morning Barbara! Now you've only gone and made my mind up for me, I was only thinking this morning that I really should get some more parchment as it's such a good deal and then I read your blog offer so I will now have to do this order secretly πŸ‘ Thanks for the extra gift, have a good day.

  12. That is a gorgeous stencil! A must have, as hubby said. I placed one order with Jeanine on the phone earlier (I had problems setting up the account and she called me back twice to make sure it was all okay - such wonderful service!) but have a further list to order online - this has clinched the deal! So lovely to see behind the scenes, hope the smiles continue! A really busy weekend for you all, but having fun with your co workers makes such a difference. Well done to everyone!

  13. You really are naughty Mrs Gray. I've managed to resist so far but I don't think I can any longer so I'm off to Clarity. Have a good day everyone xxx

  14. Sorry - card maxed out. Bread and jam until pay day. Really great offers none the less and big thank you to all your lovely crew - they do look so happy.
    Best stamps etc in the world (I went on my daughter's phone and looked at face-book) So pleased I am not on it - there are some dire comments and totally unwarranted. I have never, never been introduced to any stamps that are comparable to the quality of Clarity.
    Lots of love and laughter

  35. Hi Barbara what are you doing to us? Fab stencil. I go through the website adding to my basket, glimpse the total, then start taking things out down to the things I just need! An enjoyable but sadly futile and tortuous exercise as I don't get paid till next week. I'll have to send my now nicely concise list to Santa and hope! Great to see the pics of HQ. Keep up the great work. Best wishes AliJ x

You definitely are a temptress Barbara, I'd not got around to reading your blog until now as we've had the family down, but had made my 5th order this week late this afternoon, well since Wednesday, so yipee I will get the lovely stencil. Great photos, really nice to see behind the scenes and seeing you all so happy. How excited I'm going to be waiting for all my goodies. You really do go that extra mile for us all, so do all your team. Thank you all so much. Love and hugs, Pam.xx

  41. Hi to all my lovely blog friends, hope you are all ok, sounds like most of you've fell off the wagon as many times as I have. Boy what a sale. Ordered the colouring bookmarks for our 4 Grandchildren today amongst other things, got the groovi traveller for the 2 that I'd got groovi for so they'll be able to keep it all together and won't drive their Mum's mad by leaving it all around the house. Wish it was so easy getting presents for the rest of the family. Love and hugs, Pam xxx

I think when my parcel arrives I'll have to head hastily for my little craft room and lock myself in so he doesn't see me unpack it all, either that or can anyone recommend a good divorce solicitor? lol!

  44. Thanks for a great sale Barbara. I bought mostly all Christmas Groovi stuff as its so hard to come by here in the USA. I watch Hochanda on my laptop and see all your new product and wish I could buy. If you have any clout with them please tell them to bring their show to the US!
    Your sale was just what I needed to be able to get a few things direct from you. When I got my confirmation on my order it said it may take 28 days! Hope its a lot sooner than that as I wanted to make some things for Christmas! Could kick my self though as I forgot to order the Cracker groovi plate. But I do have a question for you, do I need to have the Tudor house groovi to be able to make the gingerbread and the other cottage? I kind of got the idea that I do from watching the Hochanda show but I couldn't see it listed on your shopping site.
