My photo
A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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

It is a true fact .. .. I am rubbish!!!

Rubbish at taking photographs!!!  (Need your help Sally big time  LOL!!!)

The wedding photographers who were at the bridal fayre today have nothing to fear from my photography skills that's for sure.  I am fine at taking close up pictures of my creations but just have no idea how to adjust the settings on the camera for taking "normal" pictures.

Hence the rubbish one I am going to show you here .. .. ..

You can see a bit more of the post box (which attracted quite a lot of interest), the bird cage and my new black and cream table plan .. .. ..  then I'm afraid it is just a blurred collection of stationery :-(

Not a very good photograph at all really is it LOL!!!  

But I have spent a brilliant day with my lovely Sis and we have met lots of super friendly people.  Some strangers, some current customers who came along to see us and then potential new customers who were interested in our goodies.

Guess which of my creations got the most interest?

Yep .. .. .. the Rustic Collection I worked on yesterday .. .. with not a pearl or diamante gem in sight!!  People liked the "quirky nature of it".

Just off to soak my aching legs in a hot bubble bath with a G&T now whilst hubby fetches a Chinese Takeaway and then we are going to have an evening of relaxation.

What's the betting I fall asleep as soon as I have eaten?!?!?!  LOL!!

 I hope everyone has had a lovely day.

Beryl said...

I'm glad you had a good day even though you were frustrated about not being able yo take the sort of photo you would have liked. I have a dial on my very cheap camera you can turn to 'scene' which takes a wider view.
Does that help?
