" insert a regular resolution here ... lose weight, get fitter, run a marathon, stop smoking .. I'm not saying that any of those things are bad ... I could do with shedding just a few pounds, I'm never running a marathon so count that out and I stopped smoking years ago. However what we don't need to do is make massive changes to ourselves.

This ... This is the year to celebrate yourself. 2016 was an incredible year that pretty much topped everything with the gallery.

So another week has passed and lots has happened for the gallery ... This week has all been about samples, samples and frames ...

So even a 6x4 inch pr
OK so first off it's been an absolute age since I blogged anything anywhere ... I'd like to pretend I had an excuse but other than I've been busy and life gets in the way ... I haven't.
