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?

Choosing a word to live by in 2018
January 12, 2018
I’ve heard of this erm…what would you call it?…A theory? A challenge? An idea? I’m not entirely sure, but I’ve heard of this thing before, where you choose a word to guide you for the coming year. It’s a word you go to if you’re stuck; not sure which decision or choice to make; to inspire you; to basically help you out when you’re not sure where to turn or what to do. I’ve previously thought this wasn’t really an idea for me – I’m too haphazard and never really know where I’m heading or what is going to be important to me in the months ahead. However, this December I took part in the Instagram challenge set by Emily Quinton at Makelight, in which she set us the task to plan our word for 2018. Surprisingly, it didn’t take me long to think of mine…
YouTube new requirements
Should I stop vlogging?
January 14, 2017
You might already know that I had a go at Vlogmas last year (It feels weird saying ‘last year’!) on my You Tube channel. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, ‘Vlogmas’ is a You Tube challenge to put up a vlog (video log) (Just in case my parents are reading this!) every day of December up until Christmas. I reached as far as day nineteen and sadly I had to give up. Even though I use an external hard-drive for the videos to free memory space; my old laptop just couldn’t keep up. Whenever I tried to edit my videos the mouse would freeze or go really slowly and the whole thing became impossible. Well Chris has been telling me for a while I needed to upgrade, and I have been coveting the pink macbook and I have finally bought one. Hooray! I can get back to video editing! Anyway, the question is, now that Vlogmas is over and I’ve nearly caught up on editing the videos; should I carry on?

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!….
