I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Silence is more beautiful than any song

Magnolia flower bud for silence poem

After the entire restaurant hears a plate crash in the kitchen.

When the final and most devastating insult is slung in an argument.

When there’s an unexpected pause in traffic during rush hour.

When you remember…..

When the buzzard spies a mouse.

When the joke falls flat.

When you’re unexpectedly kissed on the lips.

When the wind dies down.

When you close the door.

When the sun turns red.

When your youngest starts school.

When you turn off the hairdryer.

When the sparkler goes out.

When you reach the end of a book.

When the early spring blossom opens.

When the remote is lost.

When you shed sentimental tears.

When you’ve done everything.

When you hold hands for the first time.

When the purring cat falls asleep.

When the dreaming dog wakes up.

When you turn a corner.

When you’re waiting for the result.

When the grass is cut and the mower stops.

When you hold a hug.

When you flick the switch.

When you’ve screwed up the wrapper of the last quality street.

When you just don’t know what to say.

Addendum: This is the result of one of the writing exercises we recently did at Writers’ Group. We were each given a page from an old tear-out page per day calendar that had a quote or saying at the top of each date. We could pick one of the sayings on them to inspire whatever we wrote that week. I picked one with the title of this blog post, and this is what I came up with in half an hour. If you run a writers’ group or are just looking for inspiration if writers’ block has hit, then this is a good idea to get those creative juices flowing, as they say!

This is just the thing: 

If you’re a writer, how do you get over those writer’s blocks moments? Or are you never stuck for an idea?

Zig Kuretake Clean Colour watercolour brush pens review & a handmade thank you card idea
May 30, 2018
After some research, I put the Zig Kuretake Clean Color real brush watercolour brush pens on my wishlist and was lucky enough to receive a pack from my cousin for my birthday. Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted brush pens like this! I think it must have been an episode of Blue Peter when they showed an artist who decorated narrow boats with beautifully crafted swirls that inspired me to recreate the style as best I could. When I grow up I want to paint narrow boats!….
Derwent Inktense pencils review
Review of the Derwent Inktense ink pencils
April 24, 2018
Drawing and painting was a hobby of mine that I spent an awful lot of hours on when I was a child. I took GCSE and A-level Art, but since then, I have rarely allowed myself the time to just enjoy it again. You may already know that I have an Etsy shop where I sell my pyrographed items, which often is a form of drawing, but when I’m making something to sell, it’s never quite as fun! I have resolved to stop thinking of time spent drawing and painting as an indulgence, and started allowing myself some free time to enjoy myself and relax. So last year, whilst away in the Lake District, I treated myself to some new art supplies from the Derwent shop in Keswick, and following my discovery of the Derwent Inktense sticks, I put the Derwent Inktense pencils on my wishlist. Chris obliged with them as a gift on our wedding anniversary, and here’s what I think of them so far…
