Busy Weekend

Hi there, I have just spent a long weekend with my sister playing. I took a car boot full of wool, sketchbooks and journals and my camera. The idea was for me to photograph what we were up to, but in the end we spent most of the time madly talking, I haven't seen her for five months. I did manage to take these shots of her new button collection when I first arrived but the camera got put away and forgotten after that. I am shattered from late nights and more driving than I am used and I am finding writing is taking twice as long as usual so I shall just enjoy catching up on all your news.

chatting with a sister and a big stash of buttons - two items from my 'how to make me happy list'.

Sounds like a great weekend anyway! I'm happy with shots of the button collection. I like buttons...almost as much as I love paper!

Thanks for the fun news of your weekend. So great to spend time with loved ones. Don't you wish those buttons could talk and tell their stories!

Five months is a long time, I'm not surprised you didn't get much done. Your button photos are great - I am trying to do one of those mosaic effects with some of my own photos, do you need a special package to download?

Kate said...

Thanks for the info, Jill, I'll have to have a play with that!

Hi Jill, sisters are for talking madly too!
I like that saying 'Mothers are like buttons they hold the family together.'
Nice effect with your photo!
