Clarity Stamp 2 Day - Open Day Crowborough

What a Blast, what a fantastic atmosphere and what a great idea it was in the first place. xxx

Hi there, I promised you a Blog about the Clarity Stamp open day and here it is.  I did write it a week ago, but in keeping with Sam Crowe tradition, I had problems with an App, a Computer and an Ipad, or in other words, I couldn't get Blogsy to upload the Blog post that I had spent a fair bit of time on???/ Soooo I have my Ipad in front of me with my Blog post on Blogsy and I have my Lap Top on my knee and I will do it the old fashioned way, I will Copy Type my blog and re-load my pictures!!!  See you in about two hours, or quicker if my Internet decides to behave itself.  I used to love technology you know, now it seems to be the bain of my existence!!!

Anyway back to happy thoughts the CLARITY STAMP 2 DAY, OPEN DAY - IN PICTURES!!!

So I packed my bags and I was ready to go....

My Private Jet was ready.....

Well wouldn't you know!

And it rained but in my Heart I had the Sun!!
(can you see where I am going with this?)
Yep I think I will ditch the Song Thing !!!!  Mmmmmmm maybe not????

Barbara waited patiently for Me...
and the Three Wise Monkeys sat under the Tree..

Just what was in store for me, I did not know!!!! But I was leaving on a Jet Plane don't know if I'll be shot again??? Back, I mean back again!!
Yep I think I will definitely ditch the song now??

Anyway, things got a lot more friendly once we got the Kettle Luv you Maria xx

and the Cavalry arrived!!

and the people had gathered.
 Even the Three Wise Monkeys were happy!!
 The Cat was happy
and there was even a cue of people to be groomed.
So we chilled, Hi Jan
 and chatted
 and chatted some more
and looked forward to what was to come!!

And Grace said in her acting voice
 "Hey you lot, this is the after party, re-wind and get some work done"!!!!!

So we worked, Hahem - can you class this as work??
and people praised the work and took it away!
 with permission of course, Hi there.
and Len helped in his usual way??
 Stop messing on Len and get some work done!!
and I helped too Ta Da!!!
 and we made some of it up as we went along..
didn't we girls?
and we had loads of fun, didn't we. xx
 You got to try it, at least once? 
and I played some more with my GP and Clarity Stamp Stencils and Stamps
Oh, and I asked if I could take this for a bit of a "Totty" photo for you Older Ladies out there!!!
and I took a "non-totty" photo too
I Luv you Jayne xxx
and I took Chloe's hair so I could mix the colour on my Gelli Plate! thanks Chloe xx
I wonder who this is??
I will file her under the "non-totty" pile!!
Dave was there Manning the Tills.!
Hi Dave x
Look Look I have my own SIGN!!!!
Think I was more excited about that than anything else?!!
Even Heather was excited for me!
A few impersonators turned up!!
We know you are not Barbara!!!!
and some people just didn't have a clue who they really are??? Eh Paul??
and some people will pretend they are anybody if it gets them in the Party!!
Can you believe I have my own sign?? 
Get off it Mandy Moo!!!
and some people just think they have to act stupid every time you take a photo???
they have been working at Clarity Towers far too long!!
and some people need to learn to keep their Married Life out of it!!!!
Yes of course Paul, that Clarity Pinny/Apron REALLY DOES make you look like a Model??!!
Look Look I have got my own Till !!
"Do I look like a Demonstrator like this Sam"??
 "Yes Maria maybe I should follow in your foot steps"??
"Do I look like a Demonstrator now Maria"??
"Do I"?

"Do I now Maria"?
"Are you still listening Maria"?
"Sam do I look like a Demonstrator if I lean forward like this!??
Oh look this is where it all started for me!
 sorting out my demoes
 I love this stencil and stamp

And there she is again!!!  The lovely Lady with the Brains, Ambition, and Sense of fun who brought the whole of the Two Day Open Day into fruition and to life.  We Love You Barbara! xxx
