Back to School

It’s that time of year when the children go back to school after the summer holidays and start a new school year. It’s therefore also that time of year when lots of back to school photos are taken, many by the front door and I as a mum have a new set of those photos to document! […]


These are the Days – The Colour of Summer

The colour of Summer ? It has to be turquoise – although being my favourite colour, I tend to use use it all year round.  You’d be forgiven for thinking that the colour of summer here in England is grey – but that’s even more reason to brighten up the dull summer days when the […]


True Stories

How you doodling?

Hello lovely ladies, it’s Tracie here with you again, and this month I have reverted back to my old favourite technique of doodling!!
