Wonder

And the other day... I want to thank everyone for their sweet and thoughtful comments. It always surprises me that people should care or have an opinion, but I don't know why that is, LOL.

I do think I should apologise for a few of my sentences were just bitchy whinging really, having a bit of a rant. It sounded like my clients have been horrors, which is totally not true - I guess it's one of those things where the negatives stay in your mind easily, despite hearing many more positive things. I don't really think it is a permanent state but I am happy about putting professional photography aside for the rest of the year at the very least.

If I do start photography properly again, I want to organise my proper website before I do - it is always a 'I should really finish that' thing in the back of my head (I have had a few versions in development but never finished them off). So if I want to start again, that will be my first project. Taking control and doing things deliberately, instead of just floating into situations. In any case, Q Tea Kits keeps me plenty busy, among other things! I have one successful business that I don't get all emotional over, so I have nothing to complain about.

And I get to scrap for fun - yay! And I do find it so fun. Even if it is commissioned or whatever, I still really enjoy it and I'm thankful for that. So, here is a share from the latest Scrapbook Creations - from Lusi's first Top Ten feature - Dramatic Doodling, with a piccie of my sister Hayley and my nephew Caden. There's a thumbnail of it on the front cover as well. The magazine pages are printed really darkly / saturated again (just compare Helen's cover layout to the exact same layout in the Quick Grabs gallery - totally different colour lightness), so the photo on the layout is a bit lighter in real life. Oh, congrats Helen on the cover, if you're out there, it is really cool :)

We are all miserable and sick here, though we did have an indoor picnic for lunch, a la Charlie and Lola, which was fun. Sausage-y rolls and mini cupcakes :) Hope everyone has a great weekend :)
