All Change!

It has been just over a month since my last Blog Post and I am half way through working my notice period before heading off to join my new family, Claritystamp Limited.

October has been a mixed month in relation to the craft side of things, although very busy! 

The highlight of the month was doing 4 hours of live TV on Create & Craft for Quay Woodcraft with the most popular product of the 4 hours being the Fantasy Villa which sold out every show - to be honest I was not surprised as it was a silly price. Here are some finished samples that featured on the shows:

You can still get some of them from Create & Craft if you search for Quay or if you are going to the NEC on the 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th November you will be able to get them from the Craft Central Stand.

October is also the last month of demoing/workshops with my last one being tomorrow (31st) at a wonderful craft shop on the Isle of Sheppey called Poppy Crafts and we will be getting crafting with some fab products from Claritystamp - 2016 will be Claritystamp all the way!

October also saw the end of me appearing on Create & Craft, I have had the honour and pleasure of doing live TV shows for various companies over the past 10 years and they have always been great fun. However, I will not be disappearing from your TV screens as I am pleased to announce that I will be making my first appearance on Hochanda on Sunday 22nd November with some great products from Clarity - I will be doing 3 live hours and will confirm the details nearer the time.

October also saw me agree to return to the show circuit and I will be joining my new Claritystamp family at the NEC next week - so if you are coming along, pop by and say hello - I will be working alongside the uber talented Barbara Gray, my crafty wife Maria Sims and we will be backed up by the fabulous Clarity Crew of Jayne, Heather & Len. We will have some fantastic show offers as well as the brand new, A3 Clarity Calendar and the also brand new Groovi Storage system

Today is also a special day for me, as it is 3 years since my mum unexpectedly passed away, I posted this poem on my Facebook earlier today and was overwhelmed by all the love and support I have received today and the past 3 years xxx

In memory of my Mum, here is a couple of both of our favourite songs

So, until next time

Happy Crafting xxxx


  1. lots of love Paul on this day and always xxx

  2. What a fabulous blog Paul, good luck with the forthcoming change in career ... even though many people thought you already worked for Barbara anyway but you will have a great time and be a real support to Clarity Stamp.

    For me it doesn't seem possible that 3 years have gone by since you lost your beloved Mum so goodness knows how it feels to you. I am sure she watches over you and is by your side every step of the way, beautiful tunes to remember her with ... Big Hugs Paul xx

  3. Hello Paul,

    Thinking of you today, and Steph, Jen and I are so pleased you will be at the NEC. It hasn't been the same without you. Not quite complete if you know what I mean.


  4. Hi Paul exciting times a head for you and us alike, I don't know how you do all the things you do, especially working 5 days a week in London and then doing all the crafting stuff as well without all the preping and demoing that goes on in the background. So looking forward to seeing you on Hochanda especially all the groovi stuff. I am going to NEC on Sunday so will be able to come and say hello, that is if I can get through the crowds. hugs. xxx

  5. New start ,just what you need .
    Will see you Thursday for a big hug
