Three years ago today, I hit publish on my first blog post. Who knew that three years later, I'd be hitting publish on post number 1157? (Good Lord that's a lot of blogging).
You need to do something creative for yourself and you need to do it now.Whether you're a full time 9 to 5-er, a busy mum or simply find yourself in moments where you're unsure of where your life is heading, finding a creative outlet is going to change everything. I know this with complete certainty because I've gone on this journey myself. It's going to change the way you feel about yourself, the way you feel about others and the way you approach your everyday life. It has the potential to completely transform your world altogether, actually.
I thought I was pretty colour confident until I got my hands on the amazing Bright Bazaar book and realised just how daring and dramatic Will Taylor is with hue.

Some weeks in blog land are slow, while others - like the one I just experienced - are as mad as ever. This week saw The Life Creative pop up all over the internet; in magazines, on other blogs and in email blasts. It's an exciting moment for a blogger like me - and does mean that the industry is starting to recognise your efforts (praise the Lord!).[line]
