A video class with Jeni

Posted on

                             Welcome to Manor House Creations on youtube! It’s Jeni here and I thought for something a little different I’d make a video of my photo wallet gift created using Manor House products. First, Let me first tell you a little about the making of this video.

If you’re like me and don’t like your own voice on tape, that’s the first big hurdle when making a video. I don’t really sound like that do I? As always, it seems the first run through is always the best. But it’s not a good look when your dh who’s taping has your feet showing in the frame. lol What was he thinking! So you continue undaunted.

Eight goes later, after the neighbours’ dogs had a fight, the phone rang, the kids called loudly that you were ignoring their hunger, you stumble over your words, your dh sneezes, you call a bone folder a boning knife… you laugh at the absurdity and you finally finish! LOL.

I hope you enjoy my video and have a fun time creating your own photo wallet. It makes a great gift to keep all those little pics.

Watch “Manor House Creations” on YouTube here.


 Here are few photos too.
