Two on Tuesday x

This weeks post kind of segways neatly on from last weeks where I described how I feel about scrapbooking, photography and quilting. You can read the full post here.

I had shared a very poignant blogpost from Heidi Swapp who's son had died suddenly a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday Heidi posted a new challenge to encourage us all to start from anywhere and get creative every day in August and to share our pictures on Instagram. Called Capture Life, Heidi will post a daily photo prompt on her Instagram account which you can find here. Use the hashtag  #HSCAPTURELIFE

By the end of the month, you should have been able to create an album of pictures and memories. For some it may be a new beginning after time away, for others a new craft to try whilst for some it will be part of their creativity already begun. Whatever your current status creatively please join in if you can I'm sure it will show Heidi and her family great support and apparently there might be a giveaway at the end too.

My first picture was this one.

This little bee was busy, busy one day in my aquilegias and you can see the pollen collected.

My second share is the incredible good news which popped up on my Facebook page yesterday during my lunch break.

I recently shared how my beautiful friend and fellow blogger Abi had graduated with First class Honours from Durham University. Now she has trumped that and wait for it..............................


This is one of the happiest things I could have wished for her and her lovely fiancee Tim. They've been together since they were at school together and I am above and beyond thrilled that they are now getting married. Abi has written a post with details here.

I hope you will join me in wishing them both the very best of love and God's blessings over them as they plan their wedding for Summer 2016.


  1. Wasn't it just the loveliest post of the summer? I almost cried!

  2. It was just perfect news - here's another who had tears in her eyes. Yep, we are all celebrating with you! And your close-up captures great detail.
