As a creative, I’ve worked with the same intent my whole career – to create the things I wish existed in the world.
It’s a beautiful way to work and very community centred.
I am a huge advocate for journalling for our wellbeing. Journalling pulls me out of myself and into a world of creative flow. I can write expressively, plan, write lists and there’s space for all of those things and much more here..
Creative projects can feel like a light in the dark, a huge hug of reassurance and this was why I challenged myself to bring some of that into a very special journal.
A fusion of life, the love and admiration for the magic of journalling, creative living suggestions and gratitude and mindfulness sections.

More of the why…
When I created my first journal – a book/ journal/ creativity hybrid for mums with young children people in 2021, asked if I would create a more generic journal. I thought – YES I could do that… I wonder what it would look like? The seed was planted!
Over my daughter’s first year, it became clear my husband’s chronic health condition wasn’t something modern medicine could fix. Over her second year, my fear of him dying from his mystery illness started to quieten down.
I won’t sugar coat it, our whole lives were turned upside down. I was completely lost navigating a pandemic, a new baby, home school and running a business. On the outside I kept up but on the inside there were days I crumbled.
Everything we thought we might be able to do changed and we realised all we really had was every new day as the perfectly packaged gift it was.
This forced us to see the beauty in the reality of our day-to-day. I navigated emotions I’d not met before (hello frustration and anger). I up-levelled by wellbeing and shut out the noise.
2022 showed us even when we were desperately emotional, frustrated or upset.
Even when Dave couldn’t get out of bed or face the day and I felt broken and so alone with the kids, there were so many beautiful moments to see and discover. More to write about that ever before. More than that, the sun always set and we always got the chance to live a new day together.
There was hope woven with gratitude and journalling and living to keep me grounded.
