Remember to Remember

I wanted to post a poem here for Armistice day. I have spent a little while trying to find the perfect one. I've read poems about Flanders Field, about remembrance and loss, and about repatriation, and I have realised just how hypocritical I would have been posting a poem about an experience I can never relate to. I have never been to war and I have no intention of doing so and I am so lucky to have that choice.

By doing this I have realised that today is about just that. It's about remembrance and thanks to the few who have found themselves in these awful situations immortalised in poetry and have sacrificed everything to save me from the same.
So thank you to those who have fallen in war, today I will remember you.

Getting Festive Again...

The adverts are on the TV, the decorations are in the shops and yesterday I bought the very first Christmas present. There's only 45 days to go until the big man arrives... I have so much to do!

Here's a little festive card to get me in the festive mood.

Here is another attempt at a boy design... a skull... with flowers?! Hmm... back to the drawing board perhaps?

Last Monday I got a new job! Although I am a bit sad to be leaving the old one it's a great new opportunity for change and progression up the career ladder and I am super happy about it! I honestly can't wait to get there. I love a good change in life... let's hope it is everything I hope it will be.
So from the 29th November I will be designing stationary rather than greetings cards.
Wish me luck!
