A Little Creative Something......

Happy Friday all,
Wow the response to my last post was amazing, thanks to all of you who commented or messaged me - I really appreciate it. Being Gay is a huge thing for people in our society, whether it be for positive, or sadly, negative reasons, and the support of others is massive.

So the past few weeks I have had a crop (got 2 layouts done) and made chutney and 2 different jams - I don't have pics of my apple and pumpkin Jam but I'll let you know how it tastes when we break it open. Here are some pics:

First up this is the tomato and onion chutney, we have to leave it for a month before eating but we tasted a little from the pan and it already tasted yummy:
A fairly arty shot of my first attempt at jam making, I have to alter the setting process slighty as this jam is a little bit too thick but I'm getting there. This is Strawberry and Apple:
And now onto the layouts, the first one is Bohemian Rhapsody:
I used Basic Grey Urban Prairie for this one, and I have to say I enjoyed it so much.... with a few little musical hints, I came out with a layout that I can't wait to put into our wedding album!

This layout took over 3 hours to do, which is quite long for me. I love it though:
The mirrors are actually blank, that's my arm you can see while I was getting a photo. I used Basic Grey Capella for this one (the range will feature heavily in our album). I used lots of little details and made my own shaped cardstock and patterned papers. This is my favourite layout I've done for a good while - I really thought about it all the way through and I'm glad I made a massive kit for it too.

I know I have been a bad blogger since getting married, but I have just been so ultra busy - crop planning, christmas planning, making jam and baking plus I've been accepted to start my OU course in February so it's all gotten really hectic really quickly. I promise to be a better blogger in the next few weeks!!!

I'll be back soon, loves.

I haven't been over here in awhile and I have missed a lot! Your wedding photos are beautiful! Congrats to you and your wife. I love how you say, "my beautiful wife" that's how my husband, even after 15 years introduces me. I hope you have many, many wonderful years together.

I feel so lucky to have friends and family members who are gay and that my teenage sons have grown up knowing and loving them. I am also a person of faith and for me it works together with no confusion. My church is a congregational church and has many gay and lesbian members. My God loves and accepts everyone.

sorry to be so rambling I just wanted to share and congratulate you!
