Not that I have mentioned this to you wonderful lot but another one of my personal challenges this year is to try and get to grips with this blogging lark a bit better. There are numerous things I wish to achieve, not least changing the layout and having a cleaner crisper look, sorting out my side labels, taking off the dropping down hearts, I know it annoys some of you and generally having a good old fashioned spring clean. I am even muting, dare I say it, switching over to the other side, shhhh, WordPress?!?!? All these things I am sure will be achievable, but I am scared of technology, I do not understand it and I am not convinced it understands me, the mere fact that I even blog, have a fb account and am on IG and now tentatively on Twitter is a crafting miracle I tell you.
But one thing I can try to improve on is my photography and styling skills. I do not wish to fork out, yet, any money for a course, although there are some seriously tempting courses out there for several pennies worth but instead to start with I will read up as much as I can and practice, practice, practice. Do you have any tips for me, where I should read, what I should do to improve. Ideas, advice and help ever so gratefully wanted and received...

I made some meringues ready for the Thursday crochet lessons and decided to photograph these
I have since realised not to make things too many days in advance as I now only have three left for tonight as some monkey or monkeys have been nibbling merrily away at them without me realising!?!?!
|Mock wood background, this is one of my favourites to use, |
although not keen on seeing the lines move from the ground and up to the back
|Despite being busy, there is something that almost |
works here, is it that all the picture are
fairly solid and on a plain background?
|I have a tendency to red, it's plain and vibrant, |
I quite like this, although have only used it on one or two occasions
