About Blackbutterfly Cards

I started making cards for pleasure in 2007, and quickly found my home was becoming swamped by cards everywhere. I decided to put some of them up for sale on a webpage in an effort to recoup some of the costs of my hobby. I called the webpage Blackbutterfly Handcrafted Cards, and it can be found at http://www.blackbutterfly2007.co.uk/

I try to take my cards to a couple of table sales or craft fairs a year, but make my cards mainly for friends and family. I would love the website sales to take off, as I nowhere near cover the costs involved in this all absorbing hobby, but for me the main thing is the pleasure I have in making my cards.
Recently I have decided to expand my blog to cover my other interests too. It's a sort of substitute for going to work and chatting to people, as due to ill health I was unable to work, and since the beginning of 2014 I am officially a pensioner.
Although I'll still show my cards, I'll also be covering my other interests and how I attempt to make ends meet day by day.

In fact anything that crosses my mind will be on here, so be prepared for waffle and a wasted five minutes as you read.
Make coffee and settle in, why don't you?

Something cheerful

Yesterday I saw a sight that took my breath away, brought tears to my eyes, and fed my soul. Today I went back to take pictures, it was still wonderful, but without the sunshine making colours shine like jewels, it wasn't quite so breathtaking. Yesterday I literally came to an abrupt standstill and drank in the sheer beauty of a wild flower meadow that had been planted in my local park.

It seriously eased my tortured mental state and today I hope a look at it will make you feel better too.
One thing it has confirmed in me.............I need to find a quiet country place to live a simple life with flowers and trees about me.

My daughter has put the little clips to music and uploaded it to youtube...............here's the link
