Mother's day - UK

With Mother's Day (here in the UK) only a few days away, I have been busily making cards and small gifts for this most very important day.  Merchant Square Craft and Design Fair is where you'll find me with my wares!


 
A special request, for a special message, from a special little boy

 
 

Unfortunately my camera, which is only 2 years old, has developed a grey spot right smack in the centre of the lens, so depending on what I am photographing, the grey shadow appears like a mark on the subject (as you can see on the cards above).   Until I can persuade myself to pay yet more hundreds of pounds for my THIRD! Panasonic Lumix camera in 7 years - I will continue to try to work with the one I have.   Lumix compact cameras are great little cameras but this is the second time I have had bad luck with them.

Month of Letters - The allure of an old-fashioned pen pal


The Month of Letters Challenge has been picked up by the BBC.  It was nice to see this article http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-26473507 on the online news on Friday.

 
 
I intended to take part in the Month of Letters Challenge again this year but I didn't quite make my target of writing a letter or note every single day in February (as I did last year) but I did at least make a start on my ever growing list of letter recipients.   Because of the upcoming celebration of  Mother's Day, at the end of this month,  Bella Bheag's card making has taken priority I'm afraid.  I will try to do better in in April! 
 
In fact, now that I am talking about it.... I feel the urge to write, so I must make time and write at least one letter today!
 
Make someone's day - write and send a note today (if not today, then soon)!
