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

I hope your day has been as good as it could be under the circumstances.

I spent some of my day clearing up that messy desk .. .. everything was put away I promise .. .. not just scooped into a humongous cardboard box LOL!!

This is the finished result:

and I am sure you would agree it is a definite improvement on how it looked at the weekend .. .. .. and it smells beautifully of polish too!

I am proud to say that every single stamp and die now resides in its rightful place with the exception of three teeny, tiny clear snowflake stamps and a clear sentiment stamp.  Hopefully tomorrow will see those placed where they belong too.

I am going to try and make it look like this at the end of every day .. .. how lovely it will be to start the day with a clear desk and actually have room for my Cuttlebug!

I did work on a teeny tiny card today as well but unfortunately didn't have time to finish it so I will share that tomorrow.

Well done for your tidy up. Have to admit I'd probably find all that space and tidiness a bit daunting although I'm not sure what that says about me and my crafting habits!! Maybe the 'chaos theory' really applies to me.

Wow! Didn't you do well! I can't remember the last time my desk looked that tidy, good luck keeping it like that.

Can you remember where you have put everything Jules?!! The times I have had a desk like yours was and then putting things away, I forget where some things were put!! I bought some boxes and made a list of what I had put in which box. Sad getting old!!

Not a good start for you both, retiring and then having to be locked in your home. A big testing time too.
Love and hugs,
Carol S. xxxx
