'the life of a textile and surface pattern designer'

Family bloghop

I am so excited to be joining in with the lovely Margies family bloghop this month. Margie has been running this fantastic bloghop for a few months now and I have admired it from afar,  as I absolutely love the idea and look who’s taking part this month….MOI!  Thankyou so much Margie for having me and a big welcome to all you new readers!!! Just one thing you need to know about me…I love to talk ….so comments totally *make* my day and I am a BIG fan of twitter so follow mee!

The idea behind the bloghop is to post a picture of YOU with your family, as typically us scrapbookers are the one’s taking the pictures and are always missed out the shot!

So, after what was probably close to a million attempts, here is ours! This was one that I was determined to nail using the self timer on my camera inspired by the shots Karen Russell often shows on her blog….she has the most PERFECT knack of capturing  everyday shots.

You wouldn’t believe how many shots it took to get to this and it is still far from perfect!!

Here is the complete listing of all the others taking part in todays hop, if you haven’t already then you must pay them a visit…they have some wonderful photos and I am already feeling inspired for next months picture!

As you can see, I am the last blog for you to visit on this months hop, but before you log off make sure you complete the full circle and head back to Margie’s wonderful blog if you haven’t already…..did you notice she has a GREAT giveaway from Ella Publishing to win a photography ebook. Jeez, I could sooo do with winning that! Still not quite rockin those shots.

Before you go, if you haven’t already make sure you check out the Passion4Pattern bloghop that started from here on Saturday! It was sooo much fun. I joined together, with over 20 surface pattern designers to showcase some fabulous design’s……… think i’ve got a little thing for all this bloghopping now!
