Day 19 - Saturday 19th January

“Look closely. The beautiful may be small” - Emmanuel Kant

Get up close and personal with your subject.

I don’t think the prompt is very apt to my entry today as I have been to a big craft fair, bought some lovely big things and spent bug money – so nothing small there. I think the prompt is much more based around the photography and seeing as I have been out all day and got home when it was dark, that will have to wait until tomorrow but I know exactly what I am going to photograph.

The snowdrops are just beginning to flower in the garden so I have used my new camera to take some shots of them. (they haven't come out as well as I had hoped for)
I had a fantastic day today at the craft fair. I set myself a budget of £100 and came home with £4!!! It would have been £8 but I lent Vanessa £4 as she ran out of money. I bought some lovely papers, buttons, lots of flowers, ribbons and some fabby Pearl Pigments, which I can’t wait to play with. I also bought some swirly templates for scrapbooking, a chipboard album just screaming out for some altering. I got some lovely stamps from Butterfly Kisses. These are great as they are the front and a back of stamp, if that makes any sense. You stamp both images and then stick them back to back so the image has a front and a back. I bought a butterfly one and a really cute angel. They look great in aperture cards. Other than that I just bought some card, some clear bags for made cards and some metallic greetings.

I just need to find some time to play with all now!

Today I took some close up of some flowers I bought.
