About me

A little background information for you.

I am English, living in the south of the country.

I am essentially a papercrafter as I enjoy using this medium the most in my creative pursuits,
but I also love mixed media, altered art, digital collage & photography.

Since 2007 I have used this blog to record the details of my creative work
& I use it daily as a place of reference & inspiration.

The following poem perfectly encapsulates my approach to life.

Promise Yourself
by Christian D. Larson

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness & prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything
& make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
& to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past &
press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times &
give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger,
too strong for fear & too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself & to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
