Twice as Nice

People who exercise and watch what they eat with a friend for support lose twice as much weight as those who do it alone according to US research from Brown Medical school.

So why not join me on my very public journey.

Gemstone Meanings: Garnet


The garnet species is found in many colours including pink, orange, yellow, green, purple, brown and black.  The most common being a deep red colour.   The rarest is the blue, which was discovered in the late 1990's in Madagascar.  This is a very interesting specimen of garnet as it changes colour from a blue-green in sunlight to a purple-red in incandescent light.

You know your a parent when...

Your writing blogs after midnight cos it's the only time quiet enough.

You just wish you could go to the toilet in peace

You don't start doing something because your child will wake up.

You announce going for a shower

You need to create a date night.

Aside from the obvious what makes you know your a parent?

In the navy! In the navy!

Recently I was asked to fold a book for a retiring Navy officer.

My customer sent me a brand new, hard cover book featuring uniforms over the span of navy years.

To say I was daunted was an understatement.  

It was stunning, I fold secondhand books out of op shops, how was I going to tackle this precious bundle.  

To make matters worse it needed to be done and sent back to make it in time for the presentation, so no procrastination allowed.

I was scared.

Dear blogging world...

People keep telling me to be myself online and within business, as though I am being fake, well this is the truth of the matter.

I like my family life, I adore my partner, and I want to work from home.

I also love making things that make other people happy!

Book Art, Brag Post

I decided it was time for me to brag about the books I fold.  The response I get from customers is amazing and they can be customised in almost any way imaginable.  All the pictures are of books I have folded as a request, but I am happy for a challenge.

This is what people are saying in my facebook reviews.

"I received one of your amazing creations as a gift from my partner. It's just the most perfect thing to give to a book lover. Thank you so much." - Sarah

"The most original Valentines Day present ever Thank you !!" - Miranda

"Thank you very much for my 'love' book.. Just perfect!! Thanks again" - James

Daniel, perfect gift for someone that has everything.

Introduction to Colour Healing

What is colour healing or colour therapy I hear you asking.

Simply, its the use of colours to influence our every day life, how we feel, what we perceive.

Colour around us effects us including

  • The clothes we wear
  • the colour we paint our walls
  • the accessories we use
  • the foods we eat
The colours of the world around us, they say alot about how we are feeling and you can use this colour power to influence your life in a positive fashion.

These are all doubts that go through every parents head.  

Its simple, are you feeding, clothing and loving your children like they are the only things that matter in your world.  If so, yep! You are doing it right.  

Yep, we are the modern version of this.
