Don't be ashamed to meditate

Over the last few days I've stumbled onto the name Abraham Hicks, if it's not familiar to you, like it wasn't to me at the start of the week, the concept that they share may seem a little far fetched and out there.

I've always believed there was something bigger than ourselves and the physical world, just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist, my favourite way to prove this to point out that you don't see radio waves yet to can hear the sounds they carry with the correct equipment.

On and off over my teenage years and until my mid 20's, I used to meditate.  I didn't tell people that I did this, I did it in secret but after listening to a recording from Abraham Hicks, I was tempted to give it another go, then I realised that I was ashamed to tell people that I meditated.


The only reason that I can come up with, is that I worried about what people would think of me.

But now I realise, it's none of my business what opinions people have of me.

Worrying about what people think of you, robs you of any joy that you get from doing the thing you do.

To celebrate this breakthrough, I created this piece of digital art.

I hope you like it, if you do please download yourself a copy and let it remind you to be proud and uplifted at the choices you make.

If you're interest to hear the video that inspired this little bit of digital art, then you can listen to it here.

Warning - for some people it might be a "little too out there"

Take care and enjoy being you.

New digital scrapbooking store

Happy New Year!

It's been a while since I've updated this blog.  Please forgive me, I'd love to tell you that I'm really consistent with my writing, but I can't.  I write when the need strikes, so I'll never be a "good blogger" but today I wanted to let you know about my new digital store on etsy.  There's not much in it yet, but I'm going to focus on it this month and I am to get at least 50 digital paper packs on there.

Yeap if you've ever looked at the instant download section on etsy you'll have seen the thousands and thousands of digital paper packs to buy so what makes mine so different?

First of all I've tried to create matching colour palettes so you're not getting the same design in 12 different colours that you can't use together in your projects.  But more importantly if you sell what you make, these come with a commercial license so you are free to sell what you make without any quantity restrictions.  So that's one less things to you to keep in mind.

You can check out what I have already in the store here.

To celebrate I wanted to offer you a free paper pack, it's only free for the month of January 2015 so if you've don't jump in quick, you'll need to pay for it through the etsy shop.

New Motivational Accessories

Wanted to let a quick blog post just to show you the new motivational accessories that I've designed for Glass Charmed.

I have been influenced by a lot of reading this week, well actually a lot of listening. I've been using YouTube to listen to audiobooks on motivation, confidence, self-esteem and fear. I doubt there's not one person who isn't affected by fear, and most people allow that fear to dictate what they do.

Sometimes we need visual reminders to alter our actions and thought patterns so with that in mind.  I've developed a range of hair accessories, pendants, earrings and wine charms with motivational sayings with backgrounds that I designed myself.

Let me know what you think in the comments section, I'd love to get some feedback.

Free Print - Keep Calm and Write on

I've been expanding my photoshop skills and part of that is to create some simple wall art.  I know keep calm and carry on posters have been done to death but I couldn't resist creating some inspired with vintage images.

I've done a range of these and I wanted to share this one with you for free.  Designed for writers whether you're writing a book, a blog post or school work, keep yourself motivated with this classic vintage inspired print.

Feel free to pin, share, download a hi res image to print and add to your wall, resize it and create your own artwork with it.  Credit is not required but if you use it please leave me a comment so I can see what you created. 

Right click to save an image you can use online, or to download a hi-res image for printing please click here.

I've also created a keyring using this image, you can purchase it from my etsy shop, Glass Charmed.

Featured with the best

I sell a lot of my work on Etsy, if you've not heard of it, it's a place where crafters and artists and those who support them selling supplies like to sell their wares.  It's nothing like Ebay, the mentality is very different.  Here is about creating something personal, being able to buy from real people instead of large corporations, finding unique things and asking for personalisation.

I just received an email from a fellow Etsian letting me know that she featured one of my glass pendants in her latest treasury - a treasury is a curated collection of items tied together by a theme.

Here's part of the treasury

There's lots more to look at to so hop over and take a peek Orange and White Treasury

I wanted to also give a shout out to the curator of this treasury too Margarita she create her own style of art and you can check it out in her shop.

Have fun on Etsy, don't get lost on there, there is so many amazing things to look at :)
