Gareth Dunlop

If you have been a visitor to my blog over the past year and hopefully years to come you will see this guy appear on it a lot! Gareth Dunlop is a local Singer Song Writer whose voice I absolutely love.  One of his songs recently appeared on the Motion Picture Soundtrack for Safe Haven.  The song have I picked for today actually appears on the promotional videos for Ireland, North and South! 

If you are in Northern Ireland and are about on Friday May 10th 2013 you really should try and get tickets to hear Gareth Dunlop play in the Strand Cinema in East Belfast! I am not able to make it and would love to hear him in the amazing setting!!!

If you are reading this and are from far off lands have a look at the last video on this page, it's the promotional video for Northern Ireland.  Every time I watch it, I love being able to people 'that's my home'.

I was searching Etsy a while back for digital prints / clip art of New York City when I came across these  beautiful prints and canvases! 

My favourites have to be the New York City and Brooklyn Bridge then next would be Montmartre as the little cafe in the left corner was where a friend and I ran into for crepes because it started to rain very heavily!

Do you have a favourite?? Can you guess where they all are?

Laura can be found on the inter web on Etsy, Website and Facebook

Spring Evenings

The past few evening have been bearable to stay outside that little bit longer and have some fun with Cooper!!! The Ball Launcher has definitely been the best buy in a while!!! Hope the weather is nice wherever you are

Guilty Pleasures

Everyone has a few songs that they dance about too but will never let anyone know that they do so or the fact that they listen to them and like them! Well I'm about to let you into my Guilty Pleasures Playlist! Here are 4 to get you dancing on the Monday morning and yes there is a Justin Beiber in there

Concerts Galore

It really is the season for the concerts in Northern Ireland and I love it! If you had said to me 3 weeks ago how many concerts I had booked, my answer would have been one and that is King Charles next Friday evening.  However today is a completely different story,  I am not only going to 1 but 5 concerts and hopefully that will be added too as the weeks go on!! They include the amazing MUMFORD AND SONS, BEN HOWARD, THE LUMINEERS and the amazing KINGS OF LEON!!!!

Have you any concerts coming up over the summer??? 

Truth Beckons

We have bigger houses, but smaller families;
More conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
More knowledge, but less judgement;
More experts, but more problems;
More medicines, but less healthiness;
We've been all the way to the moon and back,
But have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.
We built more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but have less communications.
We have become long on quantity, but short on quality
These are times of fast food, but slow digestion;
Tall man but short character;
Steep profits but shallow relationships.
It is a time when there is much in the window, not nothing in the room.


It's The Start Of Something Beautiful

You would think that Digital Project Life would be a lot easier than the physical Porject Life but there is A LOT of time and effort needed to make the pages exactly the way that you want them.  It takes even more time when you have so much choice in terms of kits!! Anyway, I finally finished and I am happy, I think, with the way my cover page turned out!

What do you think??

Digital Project Life

I have been looking at starting Project Life for quite some time now and I finally paid for a class that would teach me the very basics to get me starting!! Here is the outcome from 2 Sunday afternoons!!

I don't think that I am going to the general approach and do it week by week but event by event as the happen in my life! This is from my Rugby Weekend in Scotland!! 

I currently working on the the title page so wish me luck and if you know of any good free resources please feel free to leave a comment!! I'm currently using AC Digital's for the Project Life Digital Kits but who doesn't love some free stuff, I know I do!!
