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.

I DO NEED "DO LISTS"

Hi Everyone

Woo hoo!!!  The weekend is here.  I hope you all have a good one

Another busy day today in the House of Hearts.

The morning was spent putting the finishing touches to a wedding order that is being collected tomorrow.  

The afternoon was then taken up making cards for my lovely Sis's salon ahead of visiting my Mum armed with favour boxes to stick together.

I arrived home early evening and decided I deserved "a little play time".  So I installed myself in my little craft pod with the chance to make anything I fancied .. .. and I couldn't decide what to play with.  Typical !!!

Eventually I picked a stamp and then spent ages trying to find my large post-it notes so I could blank off some of my image to add a background .. .. .. that will teach me to re-organise things LOL!!

Anyway,  this is the start of a creation .. . but there was no time to finish it.  My lovely "hubby cooked" supper was nearly ready.  So this is how far I got:


It just goes to show that I do need a "do list" to keep me on track.  Given a choice I spend far too long "pondering" and "choosing".

Give me a list to work through and tick off any day!!

Catch you again soon

Love

Beryl said...

Ah - but how long do you sit making lists? Typical though - deciding at last what you are going to do and then not being able to find the necessary.
It's a sweet image - too good to be left for long before it makes it onto a card.
Have a great weekend.
Beryl xx

I also spend forever 'pondering' and 'choosing' - especially papers! I'm glad I'm not the only one!!

I love those elegant ladybirds!
