I don't know if any of you have ever pressed flowers but it is SO easy and SO rewarding. I have a yard full of perennials (I love to garden...I do NOT have green thumbs though LOL), and a way to preserve these beauties is to press them. You can add them to cards, layouts, and gifts. I have even framed them as pictures. The new bride can preserve her wedding bouquet for ever in a LO by pressing the flowers. I found that the CTMH Window Charms were a great way to highlight these blooms.
I will have to take a pic of my Flower Press..I have had it since I was a young girl!
for now here is a quickie bookmark I made with my pressed flowers.
Now the second thing I have to share.
My dad in the UK is an avid photographer and loves his new Nikon fancy schmancy digital camera. He sent me these pics today of the nesting box he has on the side of the house. They love watching the Blue Tits (YES they are birds in England) preparing to nest in the box. He has this neat thing called a gorilla pod that grips the camera in weird places. Anyways I thought I would share the pic of the Blue Tit and the camera and it's gorilla pod for anyone who might be interested.
Any questions about flower pressing or anything else just shoot me an email. Thanks again for visiting and commenting.
