More pillows sold

I would just like to say a Thank you to the person that bought 3 pillows in Burnt orange from my portfolio today. This seems to be a real favourite as I have sold 8 so far this month. I know I sold lots last year. I am wondering if its for a shop to sell on the quantity that has been bought. But I am not complaining I hope you enjoy them.

Away on Honeymoon at last

Dear friends,
I will not be around for the next week or so as Simon and I are at last heading away on honeymoon. Due to family circumstance this is about a year and half overdue. So does not feel like our honeymoon but will be great to get away and have just us time. We are heading to Cornwall in the Uk in a small self catering cottage out in the countryside. Not far from the Eden project or the Lost gardens of heligan which we are planning on visiting.

So hope to share with you some images I capture. If I can I will try and drop in to Rb and see what you have all been up to.

The groups I host have either been closed or run by my other co host Cynthia but image allowance reduced to help her.
All have a lovely easter and catch up when we are back. x

Anyone else keeps getting bumped off Rb and having to keep signing in?

Hi Friends,
Just wondering I am finding this evening 16/12/15 between 5.30 – 7.30 pm Uk time that I keep getting bumped off the site and having to keep signing in again. This is happening when trying to do group messages about features selected and when trying to add banners in comment boxes. Anyone else having that issue today? It’s happened about 5 times so far. So Im stopping as finding it too difficult to do my host duties tonight.

Mug design and white line round the top

Hi Friends,
I was wondering if any of you have ordered any mugs?
I am asking as I ordered one of my own design to see how they appear and have to say that the colours and clarity of the design has come out really well and a nice sheen to it.Was hoping to order some as christmas gifts.…

But I am disappointed to see that there is a white line running all the way around the design at the top edge about an 1 cm or so from what I would call the mug rim.
It is an area that has not got any design on it but the actual design goes all the way up the mug when I created it
Just went back and checked my design and format to make sure it all fitted into the template which it does.

On looking at the mug made up in the edit area it goes all the way up. Looking at it as a product the design seems to go r

A moment of realisation and moving on.

I sit in quiet as the landscape flashes past the car window not focusing on anything. My thoughts turn to what I have done this morning. I found a mothers day card for my Mum for next month which is good I am ahead with things.…

Then the thought creeps in as still as a mouse ready to make you shout out. My brain shouts out you wont need to buy a fathers day card this year. I pause and hold my breath absorbing this sudden thought.

The bimbling escaped thought is right I will not need to buy my Dad a card this year. But my immediate thought is but I will celebrate the day anyway. I will make it a day we remember him he will not be forgotten.

The reason I have written this is that my Dad recently passed away suddenly and I am finding things suddenly hit you out of the blue as your thoughts

Why i'm not around so much at the moment.

To my dear friends on here and members of the groups I help host in. I just wanted to let you know that I may be away from RB for a while or if not will not be a 100% with what I am doing.
The reason is my Dad suddenly passed away last saturday evening on the 7th Feb it was not expected at all so it has hit the family very hard. But he passed knowing he was very much loved and at peace.…

As you can imagine my brain is not fully functional and on other things. I will be doing what I can on here when I feel capable but may have a hiccup along the way.

I just wanted to share with you I call my Rb friends who have supported my work and so encouraged me in my photography

My dad John he was a man of few words but when he spoke it was meant, he had a very dry sense of humour and loved scottish

Honour of star of the month in Nautical ~ waves of joy group

What a surprise it was this morning to find that I had been given the wonderful honour of Star of the Month in the Nautical ~ waves of joy group I had to double check the link x2 and re-read it to really believe they had picked me and some of my work for this month star of the month. Star of the Month
I normally do not share my achievements on RB like this with my friends on here but this is well just such an honour I felt I just had to and because of the group it is from.…

The hosts work so hard in the group giving of their time and energy.It is very active and such a community and positive vibe always something to look at and so many stunning images to feast your eyes on if you have not found the group go and have a look.

So thank you to all those in the group from hosts to members t

Im still around but little time to comment at the moment.

Dear friends and hosts of groups I work alongside and groups I’m in,…

Sorry I am not leaving comments on your works, features and messages in your fab groups or being much help as a host. I am snowed under at this end with only 2 weeks to the wedding I have other things on my mind. How has it happened I have only 2 weeks before I get married?

To say I’m a little stressed would be a fair comment my calendar is jam packed i’ve even taken over Simons side to fit in the appointments and other things to sort like car service, mot, another trip to the dentist to get 3rd temporary filling due to a tooth abscess, 3rd dressing fitting as I kept tripping over the length.

7 weeks and counting

Well I realised that I had not written a journal for sometime and thought it was high time I updated you with the going on my end.…

Well as I type as the heading says it is approx only 7 weeks away from my marriage to Simon how the months have flown since he asked me last September. I have a beautiful diamond solitaire ring on my finger that we eventually got round to getting nearer Christmas. Have to say it really sparkles in the sunlight and I was in awe of having such a beautiful ring to wear also worried I would damage it or miss place it as I do not always wear it due to work.

As only a girl knows you know when it is the right ring it just speaks to you when you place it on your finger. I tried many on in the shop to make doubly sure I had picked the right one.

Mixed in with that was
