Tagless today

Puh! I have had a fall out with my crackle glaze. Its a pile of pants and therefore no tag for today. Never mind, I can get a move on with the rest before the weekend is out; I'll enjoy the catch up.

Meanwhile, tonight, I was sat with belles after school whilst she gorged on home made chocmint hot choc with whipped cream; my camera by my side. I love how christmas lights look with a fancy bokeh and have tried it several times before but was never enamoured. Tonight I found some patience, so sat with some black card and scissors to hand and I wizzed up my v cheap bokeh enhancer (which makes ordinary hexagonal bokeh look like heart shaped bokeh).
I feel so smug at such trickery but to be fair, anyone with a DSLR can do this (maybe even a decent point and shoot; if you have the patience to fashion a teeny tiny bokeh enhancer). Just Google it but if you wish, I can show you how easy it was to do.

Lastly, again - Frog on a Log. He sure likes death defying stunts, that little tink! Today, he was caught "Planking" on the balustrade.

I've warned him that if he didn't take his job serious enouhg in future, I'd chop off his legs and fry them in garlic.

I'm loving your Frog on a Log adventures - it makes me laugh every morning, and I so need that at the moment. So Thank You - your quest to amuse the beautiful Belle is amusing me too.... :-)
And I love the hearts technique Bokeh? I'm gong to Google tonight and see what I come up with - I have a bridge camera, would it work with that?
Thanks again for making me laugh every day.
