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

I hope life is treating you well.

Sorry I haven't been sharing anything for a few days but life has been busy in lots of ways.  All good but all time consuming.

Yesterday was super busy.  The day flew by and the early evening was spent looking at a place for my youngest son to move into.  We looked at somewhere in the pouring rain and he loved it .. .. .. so when he sees it in sunshine he is going to love it even more.

By the time we had finished the viewing, talked about it at length, and had our dinner, everyone was shattered and I ended up in bed by 10.00pm.  I can't remember the last time we had such an early night!!  8 hours sleep!!  Gosh, I can't remember the last time I did that either!!

I am pleased he has found somewhere.  I was beginning to think he might have to move back home again .. .. which wouldn't be a bad thing .. .. but where would I put all the ribbons and wedding supplies I store in the spare bedroom and how would we fit in all of his guitars and records?  He has  gained so many more since he flew the nest some 5 years ago  LOL!!!

The rest of my time has been spent doing wedding work and I have had a few enquiries already from the wedding fayre we did on Sunday .. . so samples are needed pretty smartish.  I don't want my happy couples wander off elsewhere!!!

I can't believe it is only 5 days since we did the fayre .. .. so much has happened!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.  My apologies again for being such a bad blogger and thank you also to everyone who has emailed checking up on me and asking if everything is OK.  You are all so lovely.  I promise all is good .. .. I have just hit a little super busy spell that's all.  

I have a feeling we are going to be collecting together cardboard boxes over the weekend!!   LOL!!

I would guess my next share will be the Mother's Day card I haven't made for my lovely Mum yet!!  Am I the only one still needing to make one?!?!?!?!?!

Well it is certainly keeping you out of trouble lol.
It is all good stuff though, far better than having no response at all.

No, you are definitely not the only one needing to make last minute cards...our daughter has been ill overnight and we have spent all day today in A&E/Paediatrics. She's home now thank god but it means tomorrow I have 1 birthday card, 6 Mothers Day Cards to do: 2 for Mums and 4 Grandma/Nanny cards! Help!

Whenever you're not around in blogland for a while I always hope it's because you're busy making 'happy couples' even happier with your terrific work!!

I'm glad your son has found a place he likes. My Olde Manne and I saw our house on a bitter, sleety February day and fell in love - and it was so much better in sunshine!

Enough waffling from me! Have a great weekend!

love Mags B xx

HI Jules, you have been too, I have no idea where the past week went! I've been packing all day for a craft fair tomorrow feeling quite pleased that I only do a few a year to support a local Hospice.
Although I have made a Mother's Day card for my lovely mother-in-law, since losing my own Mum 5 years ago, I have really struggled on Mother's Day..good luck with all your wedding samples, hugs, Carole Z X

8 hours sleep! Don't think I've ever done that. Hope you felt better or it. Glad your son found somewhere to move in to. Not easy these days.
Enjoy your weekend.

Glad all is ok with you Jules… that is good news that your son has found a new place… it's a big thing moving home… and so tiring sorting everything out… hope things go smoothly!
