Discovering Moments that Matter

Discovering Moments that Matter

Hello! How are you? I feel like I’m still getting my blogging mojo back after the Christmas break - we’re now in February and I’m beginning to get back into the swing of things! Do you struggle with motivation and energy and motivation at this time of year? I think it’s pretty normal to be honest, after all it’s winter, daylight hours are short, the weather can be grim, and we’d much rather be hibernating. Still, it’s good to take some time to recharge our batteries, and not rush headlong into big plans that will burn us out before spring.

On that note, I want to share a bit about how I’ve been focusing on what matters to me, identifying the kinds of moments I want to have more of, and let you know about a way I can help you to do the same.

Life Lessons from Knitting

Life Lessons from Knitting

Today I wanted to share with you a piece I wrote for Knitting magazine that featured in the December 2018 issue (No.188) - and although it’s the craft of knitting that has taught me many things, I believe the lessons learned are applicable on a much wider scale!

What I learned from running a Kickstarter campaign

Now that the initial launch of the Moments Journal is over, and all the pre-ordered copies are in the hands of people all over the world, it seems like a good time to reflect on the Kickstarter campaign, the experience of running it and the lessons I’ve learned.

Hello! How’re things going? Hit the Christmas panic yet? Yeah, me too.

Let’s not think about that for now though, instead I want to tell you about a brilliant event I attended last month - Work Like a Woman Day, hosted by the Business & IP Centre at the British Library in London.

The Art of Contentment + A Giveaway!

One of the things I love most about spending time on social media is the community aspect - I’ve become part of a number of groups over the years, and they definitely help me to feel connected with others doing similar work to me, or those with similar interests or outlooks. I’ve also formed friendships with a number of individuals, and even though we may never meet in real life, I still treasure them as much as people I’ve known for years.

Moments from my Journal

Moments from my Journal

First of all, and with great delight, I’m utterly thrilled to share - if you haven’t seen me shouting about it all over social media already - that the Kickstarter campaign to launch the Moments Journal has been a success! Your support and pledges raised enough money to pass the funding target with time to spare, so the first print run of the journals is going ahead and I hope to have them winging their way around the world very soon!

Sewing: Sew Different Everyday Chic Dress

Hello again! Goodness the weeks just keep whizzing past don’t they, I can hardly believe we’re at the end of November already!

Anyway, that aside, here’s another closer look at one of my relatively recent personal craft projects. I say relatively recent, but I think I actually finished this one back in September!

Knitting: Rainbow Chakra Jumper

I’ve been so busy working on and talking about the Moments Journal recently that I haven’t shared any of my personal projects for ages. It’s actually been quite nice to keep these things to myself and have something to do that’s separate from my work and business, but I’ve shared a couple of photos on Instagram that got some really lovely reactions so I thought I’d talk about a couple in more detail here too.
