It's the 5th day of December ........

and I think it's stopped raining ..... for now!!!

Happy weekend .....

From a very windy and very wet Isle of Man.  Boy has this little island taken a beating in the last couple of days.  We've had floods all over the island, landslides on the mountain road, roads closed, buildings damaged, cars abandoned or washed away .....

A bus ended up in the river after the bridge it was on collapsed ..... thankfully no-one was hurt

We've had strong winds, trees down, roads closed, high tides and no ferries.  Even some of the planes have been cancelled.  Thank goodness our food cupboards are well stocked and the freezers are full!!
My heart goes out to those who have been affected by all this ..... luckily we've not been too bad ...... the kitchen roof is leaking in three places but it's nothing that a few plastic containers and a couple of old towels can't handle!!!
It's supposed to ease off a little tomorrow ..... lets hope so.

Speaking of tomorrow ...... Barbara is back on the telly with ClarityStamps

More lovely new stamps, stencils and Groovi boards to tempt you with.  Maybe a little early Christmas present to yourself ..... go on, you deserve it!!

Here's a couple of sneaky peeks for you using one of the new stencils and just maybe a new stamp set or two .....

oooh ..... a nice bit of texture ......

a burst of colour ........

beautiful tiny flowers .........

and pretty butterflies

Don't risk going out in this weather ....... stay at home ....... safe, warm and dry.  Claim the sofa and the TV remote, and spend the afternoon with Barbara.  New products, great demos and lots of tips and techniques.  Not forgetting all the fabulous artwork from the rest of the DT.

I'm off now to put the new baubles on the tree ..... yes I bought a few more yesterday, bet I still don't have enough though!!

Thanks for popping by, enjoy the rest of your day.  Stay safe and warm.

Cheerio until next time



  1. Looks like the weather's been really bad on the island. Glad you haven't been affected too badly

  2. Stay safe and dry Linda. That looks like a really bad storm and hopefully you've had the worst of it and it's moved on somewhere else. We are having storms here too ... lots of power outages (thankfully not us), but no major damage or flooding yet. Finger's crossed that it eases up for both of our areas soon.

    Love your sneak peeks ... and look forward to seeing the whole projects. Wish I got the TV channel you're talking about, but I don't think we have it here. Let me know if I'm wrong. xx

  3. I saw on TV just how bad it has been for you, so glad that you have not been badly affected personally - I hope you stay safe! Love your sneak peeks and looking forward to seeing Barbara's shows. Anne xx
