Photo of the Day – Paris Daisy

My photo of the day. These Paris Daisies are amazing. They have self seeded in my garden and have given such great colour and lots of inspiration for my photography.
I will also take the opportunity to update what is happening with Creative Memories and Close to My Heart as I have noticed that people are searching for answers about CM products in NZ. Brian O’Callaghan was on Facebook on Friday night (he was the MD of CM and is involved with setting up CTMH in Australasia) and stated that they are looking into trying to continue with getting the pages and protectors here, but there are no promises that they are able to procure them for our market.  There are issues with patents and copyrights with CM USA.  There are lots of products on Trade Me, but do be very careful as there are some price gougers out there asking for $150 or more for one set of pages and protectors.

I have no more information as yet regarding the launch of CTMH in New Zealand.  I am hoping to know more later in the week and will keep you posted here.  Their range of products look exciting and I can’t wait to see what is released Down Under.  I am particularly excited that there is lots of card making products.  I am busy making lots of cards for our shop and it will be great having a new range of products to play with.  So it is still a matter of watching this space…

I hope you are all having a safe and happy weekend.

Light and Shadow

Another photo of succulents with the light shining on them and creating beautiful shadows.
I find succulents easy to grow as they do not require a lot of work and still look stunning.

Sunloving Succulent

Another photo of the day.
These succulents looked lovely in the golden glow today. The lights and shadows were beautiful.

Defiant in the winter sunshine

Another photo of the day. The late afternoon sun had a golden glow to it and I grabbed my camera and rushed outside to take photos of the last few remaining flowers in the garden. I can now understand why they call it the Golden Hour.
We are now in the middle of winter so everything is looking a little bleak at the moment. So we make the most of the sunshine and the flowers that we have.
