Life Lessons


Seven weeks AWOL on the blog! I have missed it so but life can present you with challenges that leave only room for doing what’s necessary to make it through the day, with precious little else to spare.



I have really been enjoying reading my fellow bloggers goals and plans for the year, so I thought I may as well put mine out there in the public domain too – feel free to hold me to account should I slack off!

2013 saw my little blog turn one (which completely passed me by….) so I may just have to celebrate this milestone with a little giveaway soon!

Onto 2014 and some of my creative goals / plans:



Every year I think “It can’t be Christmas already” – and yet like clockwork, another 365 days have flown by. This is often the time when you pause and reflect on the year that has passed and inevitably I berate myself on not being more productive, or achieving the creative goals I set for myself at the start of the year.

Perhaps it’s time to be a bit easier on myself and just be grateful. And I do have a helluva lot to be grateful for. A huge thank you to my love and my cheer squad. Your encouragement, love and support mean the world to me. I am one lucky woman to have you.

Next my heart-felt thanks go to you – yes you. To all who take the time to stop by my little corner of the blogosphere, It makes me so happy to know my posts are being read, looked at and commented on. I am constantly inspired and motivated at the immense creativity being shared out there. My blog list grows by the day!

Here’s to 2014 and getting into all those crazy creative plans floating about in my head!



My significant other recently pointed me in the direction of an online article -“22 Things Happy People Do Differently. Have you come across those perennially happy people and wonder if their disposition is somehow inherent in their genetics or what secret they may possess?. As it turns out, happiness is a choice and while I’m sure it can’t be distilled neatly into 22 points, there are some items on this list that really resonate.
I decided to interpret this list more visually, but make sure you read the full article here
