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

Well today I have treated myself to a Sunday where I have been even more lazy than I normally am.

I didn't even play with my snippets!!! (Sorry Miss Di xx).

Last week was one very busy week wedding wise .. .. in fact probably my busiest week so far .. .. and the coming week is shaping up to be the same and also sees me ducking out of a trip to the NEC later this week.

Lots of new customers coming on board and other happy couples coming to the end of their wedding stationery journey with me.  (Although some still remain customers for my general makes and for other occasions long after the weddings have come and gone).

I am so lucky to meet so many lovely people and to be doing what I love doing best in the world 24/7 .. .. however it is now a real job .. .. and it has turned into the job I gave up paid employment to make happen.

So after having such a busy week I decided to be super lazy today and re-charge my batteries ready to hit the ground running next week.

It was also nice to be able to have my Mum come for Sunday dinner.  Normally she goes to my big brother's every Sunday and has dinner there.  He works away all week so Sunday is the only day she gets to see him.  But he is away for two weeks celebrating his Ruby Wedding Anniversary so I stole my Mum this week and my lovely Sis will be able to do the same next Sunday.

So that is me for today.  Hopefully I will have some general makes to share with you this week .. .. but I won't promise.

I hope you have all had a great weekend and thank you so much to everyone who has sent emails checking as to whether I am OK.  I promise all is good. 

Catch you when I do.

I miss you when you don't blog, but I always hope that it's because you're busy looking after 'happy couples'!

Have a great week!

I'm so pleased for you that your venture turned into a big success Jules. Hope you enjoyed your lazy day and the company of your mum.
Pity you'll be missing the NEC - do you ever go to Port Sunlight? It's a smaller venue but there seems to be just as much there.
