Happy New Year To All My Friends!!!!!!

Wishing all my blogging buddies all the best for the New Year. Wishing you well and sending you my best wishes!
Today I done a roast with all the trimmings and more Christmas Crackers, the pounds are piling on so lots of salads on the horizon, just gotta empty the box of nibbles I've overstocked on.
I decided to take a blogging break over the christmas period. Not often my husband is around so am making the most of family time. We went to my BIL's Christmas Day and ended up staying 5 Days and I've hardly been near my computer but normal services will resume soon.
Ohh, and I finally got a new digital camera for Christmas. Its a Nikon and has loads of settings and does take brilliant piccies so am hoping I will get to grips with it soon. I love the big zoom lenses I got too!! Lots of practice I think.
Anyway, take care everyone and thanks for supporting my blog. I've made some great friends and cant wait to get back to my crafting.
Love and Hugs

Good evening Claire, happy new year to you hunny. I am pleased to hear you had a good christmas and new year, and its good to see you back blogging. I had a longer blogging break than you, and am glad to be back, but im not sure how long it will last as we still have un-resolved matters. I look forward to seeing more of your fabulous creations this year, and hopefully to catch up over an email in a week or two.

Have a good week hunny, big hugs to you all Linda x

Hi Clare I used my new speedlight on the most recent photo`s...
Have a play I usually use mine on
`M` setting 640 ISO..... DEPENDING ON LIGHT PLAY WITH YOUR ISO SETTING IF ITS TO DARK KNOCK YOUR ISO DOWN!!!!!OR LIGHT ISO IS QUITE HIGH.....

IF YOU HAVE TROUBLES SET THE CAMERA TO `P` SETTING AND THIS SHOULD AUTOAMTICALLY CORRECT YOUR PHOTO`S.....
I have a clearer quick guide some where which explains things a lot easier for beginneres.I will look it up and attatch it through the e-mail to you!!!!
Probably be tommorrow now....
I bet you have a new found love!!!!
I sooo *love*** mine
Hope that helps a little :)xxx
