Hi there! Glad you found me. Some of you may know that my life is no bed of roses but in amidst the tragedy there are truly beautiful moments. I've wanted to make the best of those moments for so long, and to help me I've decided to journey back and explore what makes me feel, think and behave the way I do. Hopefully I'll begin to understand more about me and begin to find more peace

This isn't a challenge blog but if you fancy joining me on my journaling journey, I'll leave a linky so you can post your thoughts.

Here's wishing you special moments in time

Quiet Simplicity

I'm not sure that this page counts as a journal page as I've done very little to it. It is actually the paper I was using to work on when inking a smaller piece earlier today and I just like the way it looked.

All I did was add the bird stamps and a little gesso through sequin waste then stamp the sentiment.

I'm facing both hopes and fears at the moment, hope that my being ill and not behaving well have not ruined my chance of happiness and an absolute dread that it has. The pain of it is unbearable but I know that I have to do what I need to do to get well and trust that what I believe is a true and honest love is just that, and strong enough to survive even this madness!

It's a lovely journal page and I believe journals are individual and should be whatever you want them to be and not what others expect them to be.
I hope things improve for you soon
