A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce always carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

Hi Everyone

A huge thank you for all your lovely comments on my table plan yesterday.  You made me feel extra good about it.  Thank you!!!

I have had a bostin' day today and have got lots done .. .. .. I think I am nearly there!!

I still have loads of ideas in my head of things I want to do but hey .. .. this is only the first fayre .. .. I can just keep building on what I have done ready for the next.  Rome wasn't built in a day!!!

Just listing all of my wedding samples now and giving them all a reference number on a spreadsheet and printing little labels off to put on the back of my samples.  These will give the reference number and price band.  This seems to be taking longer than actually making them in the first place LOL!! 

So no time for extra makes today .. .. it has to be another wedding share.  I hope you aren't getting fed up with them?  Don't forget there are not always hearts on my wedding work :-(

Tomorrow will be the printing off of inserts to put into everything and sticking all the little labels on (once everything has been cross referenced of course LOL!!) and who knows .. .. I might even get chance to slip a few more wedding samples in alongside a haircut (should a lady call it a haircut or does it have a posh name?) and then a Chinese meal with my lovely Sis.  I wonder what we will talk about? Tee hee!!!

OK - back to my listing.

Sorry I have been such a bad blogger.  I promise I will catch up with everyone next week when this super busy and hyperactive spell is over.

I did receive one comment yesterday that really made me laugh.  One of my lovely blog buddies Di said

"Jules !! There's summat going on here! How many hours are there in your days? I'm sure there's at least 36 the amount of stuff you get done. Either that or you have a team of domestic staff we don't know about,lol."

Well I must admit I have been working very long hours .. .. getting up at daft o'clock to get any necessary housework done and then working through into the evenings .. .. but I can assure you there is no team of domestic staff .. .. as the state of my windows and messy carpets can confirm.  Lots of mess everywhere and "quick meals" all week.  

Who knows .. .. next week I might get some housework done and tonight hubby is cooking.

Woo hoo!!!!!

Pure class once again Jules! I love that method of twisting ribbon and used it on one of my DT samples last year. That soft grey is really lovely and not a colour I would have thought of using. You're going great guns my friend.

Hi Jules
Oh this is so gorgeous and elegant, love how you've done the ribbon!
Good luck for this weekend, hope you do well :)

ANewYear said...

Gorgeous. This one is my favorite Jules!! I think because of the way you have twined the ribbon. It speaks like two hands appropriate for a couple to be married and in love.

Fabulous ...
