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

Happy Monday!!

Another sparkly new week begins .. .. I wonder what this one will hold?  

Last week was certainly very eventful with so much achieved I can't actually believe it myself.

To think this time last week I didn't even own a single piece of wood of any description.. .. and yesterday I was able to display lots of lovely wooden creations thanks to the hard work of some wonderful local craftsmen I am fortunate to be able to work with.

Here is the centre piece I showed you developing last week .. .. .. I love it so much and so did lots of the lovely couples I met yesterday.

No heart on the centrepiece so don't spend too long looking .. .. but there are some in the picture if you feel the need to look for any. You never know with my blogging slackness of last week you might be getting withdrawal symptoms!!

Just the problem now of where I am going to store all the different wood creations I came up with. .. shame we don't have any spare rooms left!!  I have bagged them all already .. .. and it is now all over the house!!  What a lot Mr Heart has to put up with!!

So a major tidy up day today putting everything away and then back to the long crafty list of commissions, sample requests, wedding invitation prep work and orders that I need to complete over the next two weeks (oh and did I mentions Christmas!! Eeekk!! I could do with that being about 4 months away LOL!!).

I hope everyone had as good and enjoyable a weekend as I did.

Today I am buzzing!!!  Can you tell LOL!!

Oh no .. .. the radio has just mentioned snow for tomorrow!!  What is that all about!!

Jules your wooden display woods amaazing and I am sure it attacted a lot of interest.
I think all out husbands put up with a lot at the moment I've got paper candles, Chrsitmas trees and wreaths scattered out amongst our bedrooms and I do try not to take it downstairs..apart from the off night sat watching TV ands folding paper backs!

I'm sure you'll get all your work done in good know what they say 'idle hands' and all

What a fabulous idea Jules! Really lovely table decorations - you may have to nail them to the tables as I bet guests would quite like them as souvenirs!

What an amazing transformation from the pile of logs that you shared. They are certainly eye-catching and each one unique, I anticipate you needing to purchase a small woodland!!xx
