I still haven’t worked out what to do when I grow up! I’m mainly a writer, an artist, and a fairytale dressmaker with various crafty hobbies! Here (and on YouTube) I share bits of my life, thoughts, and what I’m learning along the way. Let’s find magic and inspiration; join me for this creative living adventure!



Creativity ideas #ourcreativeyear

This year, I thought it would be a good plan to try and encourage everyone to be more creative. Every month I’ll be writing a few ideas based around a prompt or theme to hopefully get you going! …

Last year, my word of the year was ‘Create’ and I made deliberate choices in work and in my spare time to be more creative, and at the end of the year, I didn’t want to stop! There are so many benefits of being creative, from mindfulness, to lowering your blood pressure, to reducing anxiety and stress by giving you a sense of calm and enjoyment in the process. There are even studies that say it improves your immune system! And then there’s the sense of accomplishment afterwards that boosts your mood too.

I’m going to be writing a series of ideas around creative writing, art, journalling and more, and this should spark an idea that you could try. This will be over on my Patreon page, but it is public, not part of the membership community. I’d love it if you’d like to get involved. And if you do, and share whatever you create on Instagram, please use our new hashtag #ourcreativeyear as I’d love to build a community of people cheering each other on!

In January, the prompt was ‘Intentions’, so if you’d like to catch up on that one, for all the inspiration and ideas, please go here.

In February, with Valentine’s Day in mind, I thought the word ‘Cherish’ would be a good starting point, and I’ve written about that here.

For this one, I made a mixed media art journal page. The focal point is simply the word ‘cherish’, but there’s also a Tim Holtz stamp with words I loved, which I thought I’d leave you with:

‘Live in the moment and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.’


Art and Craft,

Have you heard of the Baader–Meinhof phenomenon? Or perhaps you’ve heard it called ‘Frequency bias’? Have you ever looked around for your new car; chosen a make and model you’re interested in, and then all of a sudden you see it everywhere? It’s the car in front of you in the traffic jam, and then you walk past two more as you walk across the car park to the Tescos entrance. It seems like the universe knows you want that car, and decides to show it to you ALL the time…
