Saturday was busy!

Hi there!
Greetings from the NEC day 3! 
Another busy day,
Lots of new faces and so many enquiring minds!
Either watching intently at my Gelprint stencil inky end....


Getting in the groove with Jo at the make n takes at the other end....




Or a little parchment lesson from our Paul...


All in all a very good day.
Wearing down now though,
Although we just had a dream of an evening.
I shall tell you all about it tomorrow, as soon as I get to a better signal!

That'll have to do today though ; 
Blogging on an I-pad on 3G in a field = pretty tricky 

Love & hugs,
Barb

    1. Hi bloggy friends,
      Hope today has been as good as possible for you all. Very cold here today and worse to come. Going to play tomorrow with my build a wreath plates. Didn't manage it today - thought migraine was going to strike but fortunately caught it in time, but didn't feel like concentrating! Lovely ve and hugs to you all, Alison xx

    2. Hope you are feeling better tomorrow to play with you new plates. I am struggling with a sore mouth after getting a tooth out on Thursday. Today I demoed at my craft club sweet trees which was lots of fun, but took all my energy though.

  3. Hi Barbara, glad you had another busy day with lots of interest. And a good evening too. What are you doing in a field, watching fireworks? Been exceptionally noisy all evening here. Hope you have some days off planned for the start of next week so you can recover. Hope Sunday is busy for you too. Love Brenda xx

  7. So many people enjoying the Clarity journey. I was going to have a quiet day today but never works out like that in our house. Looking forward to our trip to NEC tomorrow although one of my daughters is not well and might not manage it. X x

  11. Glad you are having a good time at the NEC and sharing the Clarity fun with lots of people. Just wish I could have got down to see your demo and get more clarity products, but perhaps as my mouth is sore after getting a tooth out on Thursday it probably wouldn't have been a good plan!

  12. So pleased you have had another busy day Barbara, but you must all be getting very tired by now. Good luck for your last day and hope you pack up and get home without too much hassle. x

  13. I am glad it's going well for you. I hope you get some rest next week. I have so many ideas I don't know whether to stencil and grunge paste, brayer with acrylics and stencils or do more gelli stuff - wonder if I can do all three together?
    Have a good day tomorrow and thank you for your fieldish efforts to blog. (No, it's not a typo!) x

  14. Dave took a lovely photo of my roots coming through. Argh. I really need to think before I go to workshops next time. Must get roots done before going. 😂😂. Had a great day though. Thanks Jo Rice.

  15. Come on Barb, put your big girl knickers on and give it some welly. Just one day left, you can do it. Hope Sunday is a good one, and you get packed up and homeward bound with no hiccups. Looking forward to hearing about this evening x

  18. If you are in a field, does that mean you are in the caravan? I bet it will be a bit chilly tonight. Glad things are going so well at the show and I am looking forward to my workshop with Jo in the morning, traffic permitting. I think I will start out at 7 o'clock just in case I get caught in another 3 hour traffic jam again like Thursday. Off out with the dogs right now, and keeping my fingers crossed that the fireworks will stop long enough. Sleep well. xxx Maggie

  20. It was lovely to catch up with the Clarity team yesterday. They were so helpful in filling up my basket with goodies to increase my stock! But I still have to go online to order a couple of stamps you didn't have. Hey ho what a chore. You never know something extra might have to be ordered.
    By the way we didn't have any problems at all with the traffic. Our only downside during the day was not enough seats to sit down to eat lunch.

  21. I have just spotted that beautiful pyrography piece by Bob Neill up on the stand behind Jo. What a perfect marriage between Clarity stamps and Bob's talent! Inspiring. xxx Maggie

  22. Glad the show's gone so well. Thanks for blogging in extremis, maybe also in wellies? Here's hoping for a smooth final push and pack up and journey. Meanwhile to make you smile:

    There's an artist out there called Ms Gray,
    Who's currently teaching away.
    She's demo-ing like mad
    But not at all sad,
    Though once she gets home, there she'll stay!

    Well it is half past midnight and 3 more groovi houses made so cross eyed and brainless!
    Love and hugs xx

  25. 3 down and 1 to go. I am sure Sunday will be equally as busy. Tiring but satisfying I imagine. Worth it because you make so many people happy but glad when it is over so that you can have a bit of down time. Hope all goes well for Sunday and safe trip home. Xxx

  26. Hi Barbara I am so pleased that it went well for you at the NEC. I remember just a while ago you were thinking of giving this one up. It is so good that you have kept going. I am looking forward to hearing about your evening. I hope today goes as well and that you have a safe journey home. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  33. Glad you had a busy day yesterday and hope the same today. Haven't been to the NEC for years now. Trouble is I'd come back with a lot of stuff I don't need and can now order all my Clarity goodies online. I am looking forward to another Open Day or even Retreat next year ! X
